    Alright, pushed the fix for chain lightning. Still have to do the Fork visuals though.
    I also ported the fadeout effect which was missing in Temple+.

    I went back to Hommlet to see if I was KOS and NO. So even with The Butcher reputation, the guards in Hommett are not hostile.

    However, any attack on a guard will start and remain in combat, pulling in all bystanders. Unlike Verbonc, where they were the attacked guard was immediately exiting combat and the bystanders were ignoring the attack.

    And resting in the Hommlet inn starts a guards encounter combat.

    Re: Arcane Archer.

    Imbue arrow is very good now with the new spells. But that is lvl 2 AA.

    Imho, the next 8 levels of AA are simply not worth the investment, as continuing the caster class keeps on improving imbue arrow via spell improvements. Or other abilities that would not be improved in AA (bard song, etc). And the arrow enchantment improvements are simply dwarfed by crafting or casting GMW, etc. Thus, 8 levels basically only nets a few minor once/day features.

    I have read that there is a variation of AA that has some spell progression. My suggestion is to use this version. This would make AA viable after level 2.

    Prcs with 10 levels:

    The only prc that correctly limits the numbers of levels seems to be Aburation Champion (5 lvls).

    *All? 10 level prcs allow more than 10 levels of the prc to be taken.

    Actually I don't think it's necessary to limit the majority of other prestige classes e.g. the arcane trickster to 10 levels; I don't see Temple+ being expanded to include all the prcs which were subsequently introduced in WotC splurge books that are generally considered to be vast improvements on the arcane trickster (especially the Unseen Seer) . in any event, serial adoption of several similar Prcs totally undermined the concept of arcane trickster as a 10 level class.

    Yeah, strictly speaking it's not by the rules, but it always seemed harmless enough to me.

    I can see that reasoning. However:

    I was thinking more in terms of a number of prcs where going over 10 levels doesn't give you anything, and a player might be better off moving on.

    If a player was not aware of this, it would be easy to over-build by accident or assume some value from it.

    For example, Stormlord maxes value at 10 and then you are likely better to go back to cleric. Similar limitations with Dwarven defender, Blackguard, Assassin, etc.
