What are the best enhancements for a rapier?

I am playing a character whose base class is a swashbuckler. But I did not optimize it to be a great warrior because for once I decided to rather invest in relationships and feats related to eberron, and I enjoy playing this way. But as a consequence, my fighting power did not improve at all while passing levels; my base attack bonus did, but I am still dealing (1D6+strength bonus+int bonus) damage as when I was a low level.

We recently seized some gold pieces and have the possibility of buying magical enhancements for our weapons, so I am looking for the best way of improving my damage rate. Do you know of special rapiers, or of effects that are especially effective on a rapier?

EDIT: I think I should give additional details on what books are allowed. The universe is Eberron, so imports from others universes like Forgotten Realms, Faerun, Oriental Adventures, are not allowed. In Eberron the DM proposed the use of the Action Points and DragonMarks system which already adds improvements to the gameplay on its own, and as a consequence, other alternative gameplays like psionnics and related (for example the collision effect) are not allowed. Finally, some books a little too much unbalanced like the Tome of Battle and Sword and Fist and all dragon fight related books are disallowed… which still lets a lot of books allowed, I think to all complete xxxx supplementals, most compendiums, plus the base rulebooks and anything else matching the general spirit of being evenly balanced and not being part of a specific universe or additional ruleset system beside Eberron.

Since this question could possibly be used as a reference for another swashbuckler not having the same constraints, don’t hesitate proposing though, even if I can’t use it, it’s still interesting knowing it exists.

Some additionnal details on myself now. I am currently swashbuckler 5/dragonmark heir 2/duellist 1. For further progression I am aiming swashbuckler 5/dragonmark heir 4/duellist 3/blade of Orien N. I have the dragonmark of passage and I use it a lot to teleport in combat. I also invested a lot of skillpoints in movement skilltricks and in movement or relational skills like tumble, jump, balance, diplomacy, sense motive, bluff.. Without wearing magic items, my current abilities are DEX-18, STR-12, INT-14, CON-14, WIS-10, CHA-10

There is already a lot of replies, thanks a lot everybody, I apologize for not having given more details earlier. I will let the question open for a while since I also need time to explore all of your suggestions.

Can a character add enhancements to named weapons and armor?

Through standard crafting can enhancements be added to named weapons and armor (like Holy Avenger or Banded Mail of Luck) or do those items stay as they are and are unenchantable?

I see text that says ‘usually are preconstructed with exactly the qualities as described here.’ (DMG p219,226) but didn’t see textual evidence otherwise to answer my question.

My suspicion was that they can be enhanced further because non-magical items are included in the DMG such as Mithril Shirt and Dwarven Plate. However, I further noticed in table 7-7 (DMG p220) the non-magical items are not italic making me wonder if this means they are further enhanceable and not the others. The one exception to this is “Mithril Full plate of Speed” where ‘speed’ is on the list of enhancements making me further wonder if I was right.

But I also see no text defining what italic means in that and other similar tables. Further unhelpfully, table 7-2 (DMG p216) shows everything italic.

I realize that “A GM can allow anything they want” could be an answer, but I’m looking for book or FAQ cited text for my answer. Thanks!

Future enhancements for the Finite Element Method

How should the finite element method (FEM) framework in the language be extended to be more useful?

With the release of version 12.0 alI fundamental FEM solvers (linear, nonlinear, stationary, transient, harmonic, parametric, eigensolver) are implemented. As many of you know I am a developer of the FEM in Mathematica. As such I do not have questions about the language or framework to ask here; my primary purpose on this site is to help you make the most of the FEM framework. However, I would like to give people on this site that are actively using the FEM framework a voice in what you think could be useful extensions/improvements for the framework.

What are suggestions for improvement or missing functionality that you think would make your work with the FEM easier?

When you write an answer, please try to be as specific as you can, possibly show code that illustrates the problem. Limit your answer to one item. Try to be reasonable. With up votes given to various suggestions I will hopefully get an idea what is useful to most people and can prioritize accordingly. Also, please understand that I can not give a commitment that everything requested will/can be implemented and it may take some time before things requested actually see the light of day in the product.

Which animal enhancements can a Simic Hybrid druid maintain while Wild Shaped? [on hold]

Which of the animal enhancements can a Simic Hybrid Druid maintain while Wild Shaped? Manta Glide, Nimble Climber, Underwater Adaptation, Grappling Appendages, Carapace, and/or Acid Spit?

Does the type of beast I Wild Shape into determine if I can keep a particular animal enhancement? For instance, if I Wild Shape into a Giant Crab, would I maintain my Grappling Appendages feature? What if I Wild Shape into a Bear?

RSS Enhancements Questions

@Carey Baird
I few question regarding our RSS feed script.

1. I there any easy way to include price tags to the feed? Any plans on adding it to FSB in the future?

2). I there any good reason why not to raise the RSS feed limit from the existing 100 ?

3). I notice that the image urls in feed results are different from the actual amz urls on actual product & listing pages.

The image urls displayed in product & listing pages seen on inspect browser tool look like:…
