Here's the backstory for a Spirit Caller Summoner of either Samsaran or Human origin, coming from the now destroyed land of Sarkosis, following his heritage as a god caller.
The Serpent, The Professor, and the Temple:
Álmos dreamed of one day joining the God Callers of his Sarkosis heritage even as his homeland's destruction made the young boy and his family move further and further away from his homeland and, because of the temples and priests of the lands they traveled through, his own beliefs.
It was the brief stint through Sargava that inadvertently revived Álmos' memories and his passion for what he knew to be his destiny. The caravan his father was helping guard was attacked by a vicious group of jungle orcs. While they were eventually ran off, Álmos had grown too scared to just hide and ran off into the jungle to escape. While he bears the shame to this day, if he hadn't he never would've met Professor Lorrimor.
He'd fallen down into a strange pit that lead to a temple that, in all honesty, scared him to death. Effigies of reptilian deities long gone filled the crumbling halls, and Álmos feared every breeze for they sounded like the statues themselves were hissing at him. So he started running, terrified, and eventually crashed into the -then much younger- professor.. Once the older man managed to calm the boy down, Álmos explained how he'd gotten into the temple as they walked.
Then Álmos heard a much louder hissing sound, and once again hid. From behind an effigy he watched a rotted hydra sneaking up on the Professor. Deciding he was tired of running, he climbed up and began pushing the statue over with all his might, just barely managing to crush the undead creature under the stone before it struck the professor. The hissing grew louder in Álmos' mind, and he blacked out.
When he woke up he was back with his parents and believed it all to be a strange dream until he saw the note of thanks from Lorrimor. He fell asleep again smiling, knowing the shame of running away had eased some... and found his mind taking him back to the temple.
Only this time it looked different. It looked... beautiful. Whole. There were no cracks or gouges, no vines if roots tearing away at the spaces between the stone. Even the statues were clean and looked as if freshly carved. Without knowing why, Álmos walked back into the temple where he met an old deity he'd saved as surely as he had Professor Lorrimor....

Finally, the rules and design teams are discussing the fixes to make with MoMS. Until that time, we will not make any changes to it for PFS.
Any chance this might mean we can have the old Crane Style feat chain back then? Because the problem with the old Crane Style feat chain was MoMS being able to skip prerequisites and getting feats way too early.
Instead, he becomes practically immune to Polymorph, damage reduction monsters don't often have a means to overcome, the scent special ability, and possibly better senses.
But this is being compared to a animal companion thats level-3. It's strong, but it's not as strong as that pouncing tiger or tripping wolf.
With the right rouge talent(archetype?) you don't even need the PCs to set the first trap off.
A necromancer. But not a normal one, oh no. This one wears full plate made from what looks like bones(reflavored Dragonhide). What's with that giant constrictor snake? Wait, what do you mean he's casting Greater Magic Fang?! He just cast Shield.. and Shield of faith...
The truth: it's a Nagaji Druid(Naga Aspirant archetype) with the Shade of Uskwood feat.
Hey, look, rust monster fishing!
Oh, you probably meant pathfinder stuff. ;)
Banning classes really gets me disinterested, even if I've never played the class or plan too, and giving no reason for banning it.
Or having a recruitment title something along the lines of "anything goes" and then saying no 3rd party.
Not really. You just have to pick your niche very carefully, and remember you can still use those higher level slots to cast lower level spells, either normal or with Heighten Spell. Words of Power sorcerers are even better at this as early as 6th level.
Any word of the Heart Biconstruct Modification ?

I hadn't seen that one. Nice!

"Spontaneous spellcasters can only select spells that they have prepared that day using non-spontaneous classes for this ability, even if the spells have already been cast."
The Dual Spontaneous casting entry(like Sorcerer/Oracle) is actually worth being red because they can't use Combined spells at all.
I immediately checked for it, actually, and misremembering isn't fun. It was a lance + pounce FAQ, and it removed the ability to get extra damage on all your attacks.
Still, not unreasonable to apply that to attack tools too. Creatures with pounce are jumping onto their target. Characters are running over and(in this case) making "one" punch. That punch may have a ton if Attack rolls behind it, but you're still stopping to make it.

The first page confirms this and gives a very disturbing golem idea...
You can't unsee, so be careful.
