Spell Acquisition and Temple Clerics

Just had two quick questions:

1. Is finding new spell books the main way a Magic User can acquire new spells?

2. Is there a general consensus on how much healing services would cost from a town cleric or priest?

Thanks as always. :)

Re: Sneak Attack

Had another question that is similar but this time concerning the Assassin. Does the Assassin need to achieve surprise in order to Assassinate the target? The supplement reads: any time an Assassin is behind an opponent in melee and it is reasonably likely the opponent doesn't know he or she is ther...

Now, as a player I won't be upset if you use seven 4d6drop1, reroll 1s, drop the lowest, place them where you want them then do the buyback thing. Take full gold and max HP lol
I like that too! :D

Stat arrays

What is considered to be a good stat array that is somewhat generous but still reasonable and fair; not overpowered? Just want to look at what others are doing outside of the traditional 3d6 roll.

Re: PCMatic Beta Testing

Still having the same issues unfortunately. For example I'm currently putting together an elven paladin and it simply won't save my some of the entries.

EDIT: Some of the entries finally saved but still trying to get one more to save. Is there a manual way to force the save?

Re: Sneak Attack

Tell a PC that he was just stabbed in the back and that he is surprised, "No, John, you can't fight back this round. No, your MU doesn't get to roll for surprise. Well it was obvious to me that you were surprised." John will say, "On page 43 it says 'Characters or creatures which are well hidden an...

Re: Sneak Attack

That is up to you as the gm, if you consider the attack to be an auto-surprise then no roll is needed, the thief acted, the victim didn't due to surprise, rounds ends (considering no other individuals are present), roll for initiative. Things change if you consider there is a chance for surprise af...

Re: Sneak Attack

A sneak attack is not a "surprise" attack. He doesn't even know you are there until the blade sinks in. So he wasn't frozen in shock when you attacked, he just wasn't defending against an attack he didn't know was coming. Once you poke him though he can certainly become surprised such that he doesn...
