Curse similar to Dispel Magic

Dispel Magic claims to be an INT roll by the caster... making the Illusionist or Wizard better at it than the Druid or Cleric on average. We've had this discussion in other threads and I like your inputs... WIS for divine and INT for arcane is one option making each good at their type of magic. How ...

Before a group gains too many magic weapons or are temporarily without them.. a ghost with a magic weapon would be a might foe.

Re: Ethereal Plane

So my Ethereal Ghost Mage needs to learn to become more material to affect the material and thus its use of spells FROM the ethereal realm into the real may not all affect those in the real... and yes, once people see this ghost mage they too will try to affect the ghost caster.. it must be a two wa...

Re: Ethereal Plane

Oops, you are right, magical weapons to hit, sometimes +1 or better, sometimes +2 or better (elementals I think) and sometimes silver, or cold iron, all sorts of odd little details.... but yes magic. OK, Here's the twist to this question... so if we in the material world want to affect the ghost who...

Re: Light Spell

yep not both, the spells are normally like melee... if the caster has to "hit" then no save, there are a few of those ranged touch or just touch attack based spells... so guys, he touched you, no save... OR a save if no to hit... so if you're trying to "target" someone, you either have to hit them O...

Ethereal Plane

Ghosts, Shadows, Specters, are all Incorporeal.. living or existing on the ethereal plane (I think).

Weapons need to be +1 or better to hit... cool... (EDIT: MAGICAL +1 OR BETTER)

But what about magic? magic missile hit them? fireball?

Are you also asking about the raise dead? I love letting PCs that die, and the player wants to, play them get raised or reincarnated easily... I think 7th or 9th level NPC should be pretty common (ok, out there). If they do not have a "will" in advance, that's what speak with dead is all about. Make...

Re: Light Spell

Do you let mages and cleric perfectly put a spell just where they want... think magic missile perfect or any spell centered area to get the bad and just miss the good? So if you do not force some sort of magic spell to hit... then do not do it here. Does the other guy get a save to not have it be in...

As this "half orc" line has blurred to "restricted classes or races"... as in.. I never understood why an elf (which is woodland based) would be bared from being a druid, etc. That said, I also only see a human (for the most part) being tied to nobility honor and divinity in the unique way that make...

Dispel Magic

So why is Dispel Magic a Cleric Spell or a Mage Spell ONLY a caster's INT check.... making the mage more than likely 30% better at this than the Cleric, even against divine magic...

Thoughts? House rules?
