Have you seen the Dragonlance movie?
And I actually liked the Book of Vile Darkness movie...
Bomb: "The damage of an alchemist’s bomb increases by 1d6 points at every odd-numbered alchemist level (this bonus damage is not multiplied on a critical hit or by using feats such as Vital Strike)."
Kinetic Blast: "Physical blasts are ranged attacks that deal an amount of damage equal to 1d6+1 + the kineticist’s Constitution modifier, increasing by 1d6+1 for every 2 kineticist levels beyond 1st."
The only difference is that Kinetic Blast is missing the sentence in parentheses, and only the part about criticals. The wording is different, but still very much the same thing.

FAQ or errata on this? Bucklers have a set number of ways you lose their bonus, and gather power is not one of them.
I believe the armor does enough for the Draconic aspect the character may or may not have. I really like what you can find just googling images for characters sometimes.
EDIT: Got it in my head to look up more pictures for Kineticists. So here is time, light, poispn, and a Divine Conduit cryokineticist and her glorious steed.

Yeah, as folks have pointed out, I feel that my record on designing and requesting/developing lawful good characters is pretty evident. Among the lawful good characters I've had a strong hand in designing or having done significant development work would be Lictor Sabinus, Irabeth, Queen Galfery, the fact that there's such a strong tradition of paladins who serve Abadar (who by all rights should NOT have that big of a paladin segment of his church, being lawful neutral), and more... all the way back to Burnt Offerings, which features the first officially gay character to appear in Pathfinder—a man who is also a paladin.
I've got to re-read that book. I feel like a list should be made for those who are interested in these things but can find the characters even when they're running the game. The diversity of this setting is a great thing.
And from a mechanical standpoint, there's nothing wrong with them(except after level 6 if you read the boards a lot). In fact, they get to add magical enchancements to their attacks. What item adds to Kinetic Blasts like an Amulet of the Mighty Fists adds to natural attacks? What adds weapon special abilities like seeking to the blasts? +1 to +5?
But if he doesn't know...
The rest of your post shouldn't have bearing in a fantasy setting, by the way, where weirder things can and have happened. Are you saying someone cursed into failing their will saves against illusions still can't fail the saving throw? That someone who has a huge amount of the mental training needed to cast and create illusions can't relax their image of reality a little?
I simply don't agree.
Except he wouldn't know they're illusions, just that this particular troll was able to ignore his spells somehow. :)

On the other hand, Mage Armor helps against incorporeal creatures too. So you get the equivalent of a Ghost Touch chain shirt without a +1. Or weight. Or ASF. Armor check penalty. Max Dex...

Like only being able to use Flame Jet and Self TK to move up or down only, not any other direction.

Because nailing down that region's alignment and thus nailing down the dragon's alignment would more or less be a full-on spoiler. One we don't want to reveal quite yet, but not one like "How did Aroden die" that we'll NEVER reveal.!
Anyone else think this is a HUGE spoiler in its own right? If he's a typical Lawful Good gold dragon, why hide it?
Myth: 3rd Party Products are terrible and will break your game.
A small number of options 3pp present are, indeed, broken. There is for examp,ea feat that lets you ignore the need for all item creations feats, and you can get it at level 1. That's bad.
However! Some of my favorite classes are well balanced and amazing. Psionics is just an example of the most common disallowed material. Then we could look at classes like Artisan, Scholar, Spell-less Ramger and its archetype, and quite a few more. 3pp is an amazing resource, even if you use it just as a GM.
Long story short: Don't knock it 'till you try it!
When you say "infusion talent" what exactly do you mean?
I think your ideas for buffer, both the class feature and the item, are too strong. An Amulet of Moghty Blasts would be great if it only allowed weapon enhance nets like seeking or viscious, but not +1-5. Or, better yet, allowed you to use infusion wild talents you normally couldn't with your blast of choice.
