    Does this summon real sheep or magical sheep? The spell level (4) points toward a real sheep, I suspect. Animate dead works almost as well. Whenever I find a dead animal on the road in Skyrim, it gets animated and follows me for 60 seconds.

    Well, the game has really easy-to-make characters, and cohorts can quickly become PCs, but I thought I'd include this: Sidebar: Effects of Max DamageIn this game, it’s best to try to avoid killing a PC. The GM should consider using the event of a mostly dead PC to make the plot or character...

I replaced that with massive damage. However it isn't a fixed number but goes up depending on you hit die. Con+ d6=1, d8=2,...

    Exactly. My preference for Pathfinder over D&D 3.5 comes from their efforts to eradicate the No monster. The Old School approach, anything not forbidden is permitted. Followed by forbid very little. You Malruhn are Old School. So sayth the Dean.

    Primers should be primers, not encyclopedias. I have the same issue with the Vista City game world. A sizable wiki now exists of that game, but a primer for it must need be much shorter..

What are you looking for?:
I'm not currently looking for a group, as I found a great bunch of players through pen and paper.

About Me
Biography:
I am currently playing in a D&D and Star wars Campaign that is on a rotating schedule. I use paper and pen to keep in touch with group members and as a way to find other players who might be a good match for our group.
