Kish Posted January 11, 2005 Share Posted January 11, 2005 Can we not include the Baldurdash fix that makes Detect Evil cut through magic resistance? I find Kevin Dorner's argument that it's actually a fix rather unconvincing. This spell detects emanations of evil from creatures in the area. Because the magic does not enter the creature, it is not supposed to be subject to the Magic Resistance check, whereas the magic of the Know Alignment spell does enter the target and is subject to Magic Resistance, Save. Vs. Spell (at -2 penalty) and being negated by devices or spells that protect against mind-control magic. Now, if that was Kevin Dorner as a DM explaining why Detect Evil cuts through magic resistance in his game, I wouldn't mind it. But as an explanation for why he chose to assume something was a bug, I find it less than compelling. Link to comment
