Also, I rather liked Tyrannical's idea of a channel curse ability. I myself played with it a bit when I was creating the archetype, but both that and revelation strike seemed too much.
Revelations are more powerful than blessings, so since going from prepared to spontaneous is a limitation in its elf, I thought that four revelations were worth two blessings, expecially because other hybrid archetypes seemed to agree that "Two blessings are equal to one domain". I also thought of removing spontaneous casting entirely, since it doesn't make sense for a prepared caster anyway.
I had this already done. I have yet to decide about the last one.
Divinely inspired soldiers come in two species– the devoted who read their prayers by the book, and the vehement who claim to communicate directly with their deity. These don’t need wisdom or dutiful meditation to receive spells and powers, and can have opinions very different from their god, that nonetheless pleases to have them at his or her service. Sibylline generals often gather greater armies around them by force of mysterious charisma and prophecy, rallying their followers on the battlefield with cries of spontaneous faith.
Primary Class: Warpriest
1) Curse, focus weapon, mystery, orisons, revelation, sacred weapon
Curse: At 1st level, a sibylline general chooses an oracle’s curse. His equivalent oracle levels for this curse are equal to his warpriest levels.
New Weapon Special Ability: Mysterious:
Price +2 bonus
Aura moderate enchantment; CL 8th; Weight ––
By the way, Elghinn: I can understand very well your reasons to "retire" (I myself have a family and some projects that have been still for too long), but nonetheless I hope that the MCA can go on all the same (at least sporadically). Of course, it's going to be much more difficult without you.

Batman: currently in the Council of Thieves AP as Lord Bruno Leroung, half-elf son of a Leroung scion and an elven paramour. Richest guy in Westcrown; only 3rd level still, but Rogue (Investigator) 1/Monk 2 (LN), and likely to stay Monk the rest of the way. Finally got at least one rank point in every skill that was previously Not Useable Untrained, since that's the way he rolls: La Conoscenza e Potere ("Knowledge is Power"). ;-> Oh, and as he's going after the Shadows plaguing the city (they slew his parents in front of him when he was a child...), he's not going to impress them as a Creature of the Night, but just exactly the opposite as Il Angelo del Notte (complete with fireworks, everburning torches, whatever else would create light, fire, brightness [and he could make with Craft: Alchemy], and give the impression that the good deities have sent one of their servants down to deal with this situation personally...just before he deals with them using whatever special material weapons he can afford [yes]). This angel of the night loves Handy Haversacks and Sleight of Hand. ;->
While I praise your decision to use Italian phrases, I must slightly correct your grammar. ^^La Conoscenza è Potere ("e" without emphasis means "and", not "is")
L'Angelo della Notte (male nouns beginning with a wovel require the determined article "lo" truncated with apostrophe; "notte" is a female noun and requires the female articulated preposition)
...and Batman should be a combination of Investigator/Slayer/Ninja for me. Not Shwashbuckler. He's not jolly and boisterous enough. Maybe an Amateur Swashbuckler.
That would work best as a Shaman/Oracle or Oracle/Shaman, I think ^^
Here to you the
Holy wars must be fought by someone. Paladins and warpriests roam the battlefields crying their holy shouts of war, frightening enemies. The crusading berserker is the most frightening of them all. Possessed by an holy fury, he sets aside his deity’s common blessings to channel the most wrathful and righteous (or unrighteous) aspect of the god. Though outside the battlefield he can be a meek and amiable person, once entered in a fight he transforms in a horrorific sight, a holy killing machine.
Primary Class: Warpriest
1) Aura, focus weapon, orisons, sacred weapon, shield focus
Aura: As warpriest.
Just to make you know... since Strongblade seemed so interested, I stated the iconic Obedient Diabolist. Here:
Enjoy if you please ^_^
So... Strongblade contacted me a while ago asking some more informations on the iconic character for the Obedient Diabolist prestige archetype I wrote for Wayfinder #11. I had promised to write her complete stats if the issue had got at least 3 reviews. This didn't happen, but since Strongblade seemed very interested in her, I made an effort.
It's been a real struggle to decide if she should be an Oracle, or a Witch. The Heavens Mystery seemed to fit very well my concept of the character (I was tempted to give her the Solar or Apocalypse mystery, but they didn't just fit as well), but she really would have needed some witch spell on her list. On the other hand, she wasn't the type to have a familiar. For a while I thought of her as a Magister, but I wasn't quite satisfied with that. The Advanced Class Guide solved my problem with the Spirit Guide archetype for oracles: a shamanic oracle is definitely what she is.
Ok then, I'll try to mix my previous idea of a Grim tale with the story of Zoenessa Thell (Rule of Fear, page 55). I'll try to make it as little fairytalish-ridicolous as possible.
I had the same problem. I wanted a righteous dwarven rager chieftess of a sacred military order who could be a sweet, amiable and protective lady outside the battlefield, and a swearing killing machine when fighting. Cleric? Paladin? Oracle? Warpriest? / Barbarian? Bloodrager? Before the ACG she was a NG Barbarian (Armored Hulk, Elemental Kin, Drunken Rager)/Cleric (Crusader, Earth/Metal subdomain), but I wasn't entirely satisfied- mainly for alignment.
5. A powerful barbarian put at risk his own life in a quest to free himself from his wild fury that forced him to harm family and friends. His deity rewarded him with the power to bridle and unbridle not only the Bear spirit that had made him suffer, but other spirits as well. Now he's the respected shaman chief of his tribe.
4. A fated family of Bizarre individuals has been bound for a hundred years to thwart the evil schemes of a powerful vampire, whose blood mixed with theirs at a certain point of their family tree. When the monster awakens after decades, a distant ancestor's spirit calls to arms all his descendants, granting them the power to free their own interior self in a semi tangible form... ^_^
