I don't see why not, they're not a secret of the faith or anything.

I donít mean to nitpick, but I donít think Mooreís group has actually ever met Latha except vaguely in B3 unless I am misremembering.

Itís not a big deal or anything!

I think she did, but it was in a topic in another node and I'd have to dig it up. I'll check once I'm done with this Iddy post.

Throwing this up because I feel like there needs to be something between 8 and 14 for this sort of perception type deal.

Archmage's Prying Eyes
Divination
Level: Sor/Wiz 11
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: One mile
Effect: Ten or more levitating eyes
Target: Personal
Duration: 1 hour/level
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

This spell functions exactly as Prying Eyes, Greater except the eyes report what they see as the spell Telepathic Bond, limiting the number of eyes to 1d4+1 per 3 caster levels (to a maximum of +6).

The target is never flatfooted. The eyes gain a Hide modifier equal to the target's Caster Level. The eye's maximum Spot modifier is +35 instead of +25.

Yeah, that's fine and worth trying.

I'm tentatively rejecting this one, since I have to do a lot of homework on it and make some decisions. This no may become a yes over the weekend, but for now I'm punting it with an expectation it'll be rejected.

I'll get back to you on this by Monday.

Prying eyes tonight, it's a bit beyond the time I have to sort into all of that.

Adding this to the spell collection.

Balor Lord Nimbus
Transmutation [Fire]
Level: Clr 6, Sor/Wiz 6
This spell is identical to balor nimbus, except as noted here. The fire damage you deal to any creature grappling you rises to 10d6 and you gain a +4 bonus to grapple checks.

Spell question. I've been thinking Disintegrating Burst was from this source. The Spell Compendium has Disintegrating Burst that does the regular Disintegrate damage on a passed save (5d6), not 8d6. Is that correct?

It's not. It's from...I believe Imix's writeup, though it was used before by others, it's not remotely exclusive to him.

Disintegrating Blast
Transmutation
Level: Duskblade 12, Sor/Wiz 12
Range: 100ft
Area: 100ft radius burst centered on you

This spell is identical to disintegrating burst, except as noted here. This spell can inflict a maximum of 60d6 damage (8d6 on a successful save).

Disintegrating Burst
Transmutation
Level: Duskblade 9, Sor/Wiz 9
Range: 20ft
Area: 20ft radius burst centered on you

This spell is identical to disintegrate, except as noted here. All creatures and unattended objects (except yourself and your familiar) are affected by a disintegrate spell. You do not need to make ranged touch attacks against the creatures in the burst, though spell resistance and the Fortitude saving throw still apply.

A case of same idea, same name but not the same thing. I wasn't aware of that spell until now.
