Back on the armor thing, if that GM wanted to be "historically accurate", he should have allowed longswords, bastard swords, and greatswords to all do piercing and slashing damage as they did in real life.
Conversely, someone could pick up an estoc and completely obliterate chainmail and any sort of plate armor. (Not saying armor being immune to damage types is a good thing, just throwing ideas out.)

My only gripe is that in the Ranged Tactics Toolbox, magus got a Reach Spell-type arcana. Is there any real difference aside from Reach Spellstrike requiring you to spellstrike your spell to gain the effect of the metamagic?
People keep demanding that the myrmidarch NEEDS to have Spell Combat, and it's not going to happen. The myrmidarch is meant to be sword and bow guy, not full-on bow guy. Also, being able to full attack with a bow AND stack a spell on it at range doesn't sound like it could ever get abusive at all, nope.

What about another printing of the Advanced Players Guide. I know you cannot discuss next printings but I would like to point out that it's been nearly 5 years since it's seen an update.
This. Just sayin'. Or an errata to Ultimate Equipment, which still has the old, original printings of basically every single piece of equipment and is horribly out of date.

That's actually pretty awesome. Maybe we can reverse engineer this for the spellblade to make it suck less. :)
Ugh, so it likely has the same wording as the spellblade's Force Athame ability. You can spell combat, or two-weapon fight, but not both at the same time.
At least the mindblade doesn't give up spellstrike.

Hm... Wonder if I can wangle Kinetic Chirurgeon to be geokineticist or pyrokineticist as well. Might have to do some reverse-engineering.
Golden Sun references!

But they aren't benders. At all. Unless you plan to houserule that they're also monks.

This definitely sounds like something that should be included in the next printing of the CRB, since you just changed the drawing a weapon and sheathing a weapon actions to make them two sides of the same coin.
I've been saying since the beginning that kineticist feels more like Golden Sun than Avatar to me. >.> If you can actually still use your powers and wield melee weapons in combat, it WILL be Golden Sun.

It's a bastard sword rapier. It can be used with weapon finesse only if you have the exotic weapon proficiency feat, but once you have that you can use weapon finesse with it in one or two hands. You may have missed that part.
As far as Bladebound goes, no, he can't. But the fact that the Blade Adept arcanist ignores that is dumb, and it's not a bad houserule to allow Bladebound magi to take any one-handed piercing or slashing weapon within reason as their black blade.
I've said this in other threads, but I'll say it again: We'll probably never get more aeons and the role of the de-facto neutral outsider race has been given to the psychopomps because James Jacobs said in his thread that after thinking about it he didn't like them and that because of their innate bipolarity, it was hard to quantify them as friend or foe for both player and GM.
Pretty sure Erik said that the errata would be out "by the end of GenCon." I would pretty much take that as "We're releasing this at GenCon", since there has been no news about it other than "It's coming."

1. Fast healing and regen would do both at once, just like magical healing. If a creature with fast healing 5 has 10 lethal and 10 non-lethal, they'd heal that in two rounds.
2. That one I'm not sure about.
Ever tried swimming in stormy waters? This would be the equivalent of that. It's incredibly hard; the water of the orb is constantly churning and beating you into different directions. If I were GM I'd consider giving you a bonus to your Reflex save thanks to your swim speed, but you still need to make the Reflex save to get out.
If Unchained is anything to go by, they can't use Spell Sunder now either. :P
