A162: Actually, I think you would just get a separate pool of greater turn attempts to use specifically against undead.

Q155: Is there a spell to throw a weapon?

The Launch Item spell is a cantrip that can chunk a Fine sized item up to 100 Ft + 10/Level. You could, theoretically, use this to chunk a weapon made for a Tiny creature, which would be a fine sized item (a weapon is 2 size categories smaller than the creature is was made for, but remember a two handed weapon is a one handed weapon for a creature one size larger). So a "Fine Sized Heavy Mace" would do 1d4 damage.

I find this idea very funny.

Q163: Is there anything that prohibits a Magebred creature from becoming an animal companion?

Never mind the insults (which are clearly 4Chan-level childish). You say people like Sunic are the bane of the internet? Try looking at your own post and telling me you are better than him.

I checked it and it does say that. However polar bears and dire lions are normally level 10. Of course those two examples do compare favorably to them stat wise while being 3 levels lower. So while not quite the answer I was hoping for this still summarizes my reaction:  :rollseyes :flame :plotting

Huh. I didn't bother to fact-check the numbers, assuming that Wizards would have. Looking back, I should've known better. :P

Deathstrike bracers (Magic Item Compendium 93) let you ignore type-based immunity for one round three times per day.  They're much nicer if your DM allows you to use the guidelines in the Dungeon Master's Guide to increase the cost to get unlimited uses per day. 
For the curious, the cost of this item would be something like 8,333.3 (repeating)

Q164 Any idea where exactly these guidelines are? I was conversing with someone and they didn't believe it would be that cheap. And thanks to all the people who answered my earlier questions

I forget the exact page, but the idea is that items are 1/day 2/day 3/day 4/day at will use, and that the cost increases at a linear rate, aka making a 3/day item at will raises the cost by 2/3rds.

DMG, starting on page 282, under the "Create Magic Items" header. In other words, where it would make sense for them to be. :p Of the greatest interest for the specific situation is table 7-33: Estimating Magic Item Gold Piece Values, on page 285.

Look again.
ECS, p. 37: A druid or ranger may never acquire a magebred animal as a companion. Most druids and rangers are ambivalent toward such creatures, while some consider magebred animals to be corruptions of nature.

Then again, Five Nations, p. 75 changes this to:
A druid from Breland of 7th level or higher or a ranger from Breland of 14th level or higher may select a magebred brown bear as her animal companion instead of a polar bear.
A druid from Breland of 7th level or higher or a ranger from Breland of 14th level or higher may select a magebred ghost tiger as her animal companion instead of a dire lion.

Q 166: What non-campaign specific deities have access to the Time and Travel domains?  (Specifically, I'm wondering how one can access the Time domain, in addition to sacrificing the Travel domain in order to get the Travel Devotion feat)

Q 167 a. Is there any way to get your armor bonus (from armor) to touch attacks?
         b. Is there any way to get your shield bonus (from shield) to touch attacks?

Ghost Touch (MIC) will add the enhancement bonuses (but not the base AC) as a touch AC bonus.

You mean Ghost Ward.  Ghost Touch is in the DMG (+3 bonus, applies to Incorporeal attacks).
I am constantly amazed by how many DM's ban Tomb of Battle.  The book doesn't even exist!

Q160:How high can I get the spellcraft modifier by level 21?
I know about Item familiar,skill focus,magical aptidude ,maybe an item that gives competence bonus and masterwork Item.....
The epic feat is allready taken(epic spellcasting)
What else can boost spellcraft?The character would have to cast ninth level spells so prestige classes that lose up to 4 caster levels are acceptable.....

Bump....
