Enhancements: Does Devotion from Multiple Sources Stack?
Say I have a Bard1/Ranger1 and I take both Bard Song Magic I (which grants 20 positive spellpower) and Ranger Devotion I (which also grants 20 positive spellpower). Do the two stack, effectively granting me 40 positive spellpower?

I would think they'd lock each other out, only allowing you to take one line or the other. That's how class toughness enhancements work, at least.

Actually it seems I have my answer. I did some testing with a Veteran II build just to test it out and it seems that they DO stack. :)

I suppose this might be a display bug. I will test the output with cure light wounds.

Okay, I tested whether this was a display bug or whether they do indeed stack. Here is the data I recorded:

Code:

Observed Numbers
8, 9, 11, 12, 14, 15

Hypothesis 1
Expected Numbers (cure light wounds 1d6+2+3: caster level 3) if multiplier is 1.4 (40 spellpower)
roll    mult  result  rounded down
total = (6+5) x 1.4  = 15.4  = 15
total = (5+5) x 1.4  = 14    = 14
total = (4+5) x 1.4  = 12.6  = 12
total = (3+5) x 1.4  = 11.2  = 11
total = (2+5) x 1.4  = 9.8    = 9
total = (1+5) x 1.4  = 8.4    = 8

Hypothesis 2
Expected Numbers (cure light wounds 1d6+2+3: caster level 3) if multiplier is 1.2 (20 spellpower)
roll    mult  result  rounded down
total = (6+5) x 1.2  = 13.2  = 13
total = (5+5) x 1.2  = 12    = 12
total = (4+5) x 1.2  = 10.8  = 10
total = (3+5) x 1.2  = 9.6    = 9
total = (2+5) x 1.2  = 8.4    = 8
total = (1+5) x 1.2  = 7.2    = 7

So hypothesis 2 is rejected. Either something else is happening behind the scenes or the multiplier is indeed 1.4 (40 spellpower).
