I am filling in for a DM because he wants a break so these may seem like very noob like questions. Thats because they are and I am. The problem is I am being told things but I can't find the rulings in my readings. There is a lot of reading...
1. How does telepathy work. One of my co-players is playing a shardmind Psion. (not a good idea for a new DM by the way). He has telepathic abilities but I don't understand how they work. Can he read anyones mind he wants to wether they like it or not? Can he make noise in peoples mind wether they like it or not?
2. If you are knocked down by half your health do you automatically fall unconscious?
3. Feat bonuses do not stack. Does this mean a bonus that comes from a feat or does the bonus have to say it is a feat bonus?
4. When is a good time to have a solo monster and how strong is too strong? I realize this is a judgement call but I want some feed back. What criteria do people use to decide wether it is a good match up for the adventurers. Note: we don't have a healer so I am trying not to get them killed. Hopefully soon they will.
If you have reading suggestions or specific rules you know of for these I would also appreciate that. Thanks
