Q: Dear Sage
When a war mind (Expanded Psionics Handbook, 155) uses his sweeping strike class feature, does he roll separately for each of the two creatures attacked, or does the same roll apply to each?
A: Resolve each attack completely separately, applying modifiers as appropriate for each.
For example, you might be flanking one target but not the other; you’d only get the +2 bonus on the attack roll against the flanked foe.
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
