I believe myself to be rather intelligent ... I mean, I have an IQ of 162. But there are just some things in the D&D3E Player's Handbook that isn't exactly clear to me, so maybe you can help me.

The major one being: bonus spells. I don't get'em. I'm using a half-elven ranger with a wisdom of 14 (I know his wisdom is important ... I think). I'm at level 1 right now (haven't even begun playing with him just yet), but rangers, of course, are supposed get spells at 4th level, but, on the "Spells Per Day" chart, it says "0" under the number of 0-level spells.

Can someone explain to me how bonus spells work and why that is 0?

as i remember it, "0" means you don't get any spells at that level but if the ability score allows you to get bonus spells of that level, then you get it. if the spells per day is listed as "-" then you really get none for that elvel. if its listed as "0" then you get the bonus spells.

and i'm not saying this applies to you, but i'm always amused by the number of "geniuses" that play this game. if i could get all the roleplayers i've ever played with who've claimed 140+ IQ's i could start a new brain trust. genius roleplayers for a better america or something.

tee-hee. I was just joking. Honestly, I think having an IQ of 165 qualifies for autism (because people who are autistic have an extremely high IQ).

Yes but it doesn't mean you are autistic, trust me I don't think you would be posting about playing DnD if you were. The problem with higher IQ (in gerneral, not everyone) is the higher the IQ the harder it is to funtion in normal socity.

From the wonderful site: http://www.wizards.com/D20/article.asp?x=srd35

specifically: http://www.wizards.com/d20/files/v35/ClassesII.rtf

When **Table: The Ranger** indicates that the ranger gets 0 spells per day of a given spell level, he gains only the bonus spells he would be entitled to based on his Wisdom score for that spell level.

Well, I'm playing 3E not 3.5, but the spells per day are still the same on there.
