Immunity to Illusions

<t>I just wanted to get a few opinions on this. A Dark Naga has "Guarded Thoughts" which gives them Immunity to Illusions.<br/> <br/> Does Immunity to Illusions encompass all illusory magic? i.e. Phantasmal Force, Invisibility, Mirror Image, Phantasmal Killer, etc. <br/> <br/> Or does it just includ...

Magic Stones

<t>I was wondering about the spell Magic Stones.<br/> <br/> The description states the duration is n/a . . . so, can a Druid just keep enchanting stones endlessly and handing them out? You know, during travel and off adventuring time just enchant 3 stones a day and memorize it mulitple times? The st...

<t>You can always give them "0" level hp as well. That is, their 1st level HP is in addition to the HP they had as a "0" level character or ordinary person.

Spiritual Weapon

Hey, quick question. I need some opinions about the Spiritual Weapon (cleric) spell: If a cleric casts it, can he also fight alongside it or is the concentration required such that he must remain out of combat to fully focus on it?
