So, strange question for D&D 5e, but would a carried creature count as one of the five for a Feather Fall spell? For example, if Trogor, the really strong Half-Orc fighter picked up Syla, the really light gnome wizard, and jumped with four other people, could Syla cast Feather Fall targeting the four others and Trogor to save them all? Or would she end up splatted on the ground if she didn't have one of the targets being herself?

I'm already locked in for anything this ruling might affect at the moment, I just thought it was a bit interesting.

From Bhelogan - This comes down to DM ruling on how to handle the situation. Yes, the held creature would need to be one of the 5 targets to benefit from the spell. If the held creature is not a target, then there would be some skill check or saving throw needed, probably by both parties, to make sure that the carrier who has the spell on them is able to hold onto the creature being carried.

Kind of unclear on why the initial post would say combat is an option but then the response post would say killing something is potentially negative points. Being a non magic user my character has limited options that will have any effect given the circumstances and goals stated; so is there a possibility of clarification on what the negative consequences will be of choosing combat actions?


From Bhelogan - The goal of combat doesn't have to be death. Death is what will be looked down upon.

If it matters at all, in the PF threads it's 'Combat is an option, but only rescuing children awards treasure points.'

Can I get some more details on my perception check of the room? Looking for stairways and other exits. Also anything else that might be preventing escape from the room.

It is a room about 30x30 it is currently on fire with patches of wall missing, but filled with fire. There is a closed door in the room, which you believe leads to another room which is probably also on fire. Potentially even more so. The most obvious thing to notice is the large serpentine creature who just smashed a large hole in the wall.

Final question: what is the distance between the nest and the building?

Based on the description and some quick math I’d say 85ft but figured I should check.

125ft. If the building is 110 feet from the center and the spire 60 ft the distance between them is 125ft.

Edit: I lied, one more. Floating disk doesn’t list an action to command it to move with you or not. This leads me to believe it’s no action since in spells that sort of thing gets spelled out. Is this how you would rule it? Note that unlike say flaming sphere this is just turning the follow function on or off.

It would be a free action, as I assume you can command it verbally. Also note that it always wants to accompany you so you have to be specific about your commands. "Follow to the left at a distance of 25 feet" not "go twenty five feet over there."

The building is 60ft away and the spire is 60ft away. Both are 50ft up. The ettin is the only thing 110ft away. Is it still 125ft distance between the two? Just clarifying so there is no confusion.

I stand corrected, yes it is 85 ft.

well silly me I have never criticaled on a alchemist bomb before and text is a bit confusing, do I roll bomb damage again 5d6+5 or just the 5d6 or 1d6+5 I am a little confused by it on the pfsrd?

text from pfsrd
"On a direct hit, an alchemist’s bomb inflicts 1d6 points of fire damage + additional damage equal to the alchemist’s Intelligence modifier. The damage of an alchemist’s bomb increases by 1d6 points at every odd-numbered alchemist level (this bonus damage is not multiplied on a critical hit or by using feats such as Vital Strike)."

My understanding is that you add an additional d6 but the splash part cannot crit per the crit rules.
