Ladies and gentlemen, without more ado, I give to you the
The search for self–perfection takes many forms. For some monks, this implies a desire to be living embodiments of speed, a lightning on the battlefield, striking at enemies before they can react or only see the attack coming. These individuals sacrifice physical strength and endurance and renounce to self–discipline to tap into arcane magic and enhance their mobility with all existing means. They become lightspeed masters.

High Speed Attack (Su): A lightspeed master can grab and drag an opponent with himself at high speed, disorienting and dazing him or her. When the lightspeed master successfully uses the grapple maneuver on an opponent, he can attempt to move himself and the opponent at full speed in his next turn. The target takes 2 point of damage per lightspeed master level and is rendered unconscious for 1 round per lightspeed master level by the stress of the sprint unless it makes a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + 1/2 the monk's level + the monk's Wis modifier). If the save is successful, the target’s merely stunned for the same time.
I essentially used the qinggong monk's template, mixing it with a lot of RGG's Talented Monk, for the one and only purpose to create "THE FASTEST MONK ALIVE EVER". ^_^ And he HAD to have Bladed Dash because my favourite highspeed manga hero HAS IT. ^_^
Aaaand sent. A Large CR 2 vermin + animal companion stats = 336 words. It probably isn't original enough to win, but what the stick. This is something I wanted to do for a long time. I checked the bestiary thread and there WAS a request for "monstrous butterflies/moths", so I think I'm within the rules.
Okay, so I thought about this a lot and decided:
Shaman stuff, included a feat/archetype to take revelations from the mystery matching their spirit: a Bones shaman MUST be able to use Command Undead, and a Nature one MUST be able to use Natural Divination!
I think that TLaughingMan was talking about the ACG Shaman, while Dukeh555 was talking about the Open Design/Kobold Press Shaman (that's why I said that it would be confusing to have two classes with the same name) :) To answer the first question, I think yes. The ACG Shaman's spirit familiar (and the Houngan archetype's spirit familiar for the OD/KP Shaman) work like familiars in all respects.
The Improved Familiar feat doesn't say that you must be an arcane caster to take it. And I can see a flame shaman with a small fire elemental, or a bone shaman with a nosoi or quasit (able to transform in a raven, if the first familiar was a raven). I'd rule that a shaman's Improved familiar must be related to her spirit or to her previous spirit animal.
Your wish is an order, my friend ;)
The gifts of the gods are rarely given without a price, even to those who search them. The Possessed Prophet is an unfortunate mortal who’s been reluctantly chosen (often from birth) by some unknown arcane spirit to reincarnate in her body the soul of a powerful servant of her patron from times past, to the purpose of delivering their commands and usher their ends to the church and the world at large. This entity can have a very different alignment from that of their host body, and their forced cohabitation and the eldritch visions of past and future can cause infinite anguish to the possessed prophet, ultimately driving her mad. Often, the coming of a possessed prophet into the world is seen as an harbinger of apocalypse.
