Speeding up investigation

I don't plan to reveal any spoilers here so I don't mind if you read along. If a spoiler must come up though, I will put them in spoiler tags. I trust you all not to read them.

I never implied it was. However, the ability to recognize the game just from the furniture in Crono's house strikes me as uncommon.

Add another note of interest. Though I'd like to see what books you're allowing, likeliness is I'll apply with something regardless of that.

I like the idea of save-or-suck spells allowing saves to end their effects every round. Getting taken out of a fight entirely because you rolled a 1 against a Stinking Cloud is a bad feeling. That's...

Ah, that's what you meant. Okay. In that case, your familiar would still be 3 levels behind, but Mystic Theurge would indeed advance it. That might be a good feat investment.

Heh, we just had a somewhat heated discussion about allowing third party material (and specificially the Tome series) in OOC. The end result: no third party material allowed.

Right. Which is why I was saying, since he's a Ranger, it's entirely within the realm of possibility that he's trained some animal assistance. Sorry I wasn't clear there.
