A question: is the Orisons edge required to get orisons at all or does it only give orisons "at will"?

Filled out.I was actually half joking with that line (only "half"), but... wow. I could REALLY get to work for Everyman Games? Just... wow.

Hire ME to write them! I have some archetypes ready and some hybrid classes in mind! :D
Cyborg 009. EVERY ONE of them.
Hope it's enough. ^_^ The transforming Bard is the hardest part until now. I created myself some Archetypes for them, but...
This is very simple but, I think, also much needed.
Eldritch Scholar (Magus Archetype):
Some magi deepen their studies in magic, learning how to modify spells and use exploits the way an arcanist does.
Spellcasting: An eldritch scholar prepares and casts spells as an arcanist. Use the bard tables to calculate his allot of prepared and cast spells per day.
Exploits: Starting at 3rd level, an eldritch scholar may gain an arcanist exploit every time he could gain a magus arcana. He can use his arcane pool points as arcane reservoir points to fuel these exploits. At 12th level, the eldritch scholar gains access to greater exploits too.
Consume Spells: At 4th level, the eldritch scholar gains the arcanist's consume spells ability. This replaces spell recall.
I'm pretty satisfied of this. Hope you like it too.
Songrider (Skald Archetype):
A poet, a warrior and a cavalier, the songrider spurs her mount in battle, guiding the charge with her compelling hymns.
Exotic Mount (Ex): At 1st level, a songrider forms a bond with a strong, loyal companion that permits her to ride it as a mount. This mount functions as a druid’s animal companion, using the songrider’s level as her effective druid level. The animal chosen as a mount must be large enough to carry the songrider (Medium or Large for a Small character; Large or Huge for a Medium character). The share spells ability of a songrider’s mount applies to her known masterworks and sagas, too.
Raging Song: The songrider gains access to the following raging songs:
Inspiring Song (Ex): At 5th level, all the songrider’s allies that can hear her raging song gain bonuses as per a cavalier’s banner ability.
Greater Inspiring Song (Ex): At 14th level, all the songrider’s allies that can hear her raging song gain bonuses as per a cavalier’s greater banner ability.
This replaces dirge of doom and song of the fallen.
Rage Powers: The following rage powers complement the songrider archetype: ferocious beast, ferocious beast, greater, ferocious trample, ferocious trample, greater, inspire ferocity, spirit steed.
Actually, I had TWO good ideas. So here's today's archetype...
Meistersinger (Hunter Archetype):
A meistersinger is an animal charmer, living often isolated in the wilderness with her animal companion. She sings her melodies for animals alone and raises animal army to battle when her home is threatened.
Class Skills: A meistersinger adds Perform (sing, string, or wind) to her list of class skills in place of Knowledge (dungeoneering). This modifies the hunter’s class skills.
Attract Swarm: At 8th level, the meistersinger can use bardic performance to summon 1d3 swarms of Tiny animals; they remain as long as he continues performing. At 13th level, he summons 2d3 swarms instead of 1d3 and the swarms have the advanced creature simple template. At 19th level, the number of swarms he summons increases to 3d3.
Attract Pack: At 16th level, the meistersinger can use bardic performance to summon a horde of animals for a total of hit dice equal to her level –6. The summon lasts as long as the performance continues; otherwise, this ability functions as summon nature’s ally VII.
This replaces hunter tactics, teamwork feats, and bonus tricks.
Next: The REAL Piper... a Skald with an animal companion which enrages with him!
This time I fixed a 3PP archetype: the Master Herbalist from RGG's Knacks of Nature. It intrigued me, but it also bugged me... so I took something from the Nirmathi Irregular, the Warden, the Battle Scout and the Horizon Walker and "adjusted" it to be a more meeker and a bit more "alchemical".
Master Herbalist (Ranger Archetype):
The master herbalist has a much stronger connection to the land and the materials it produces than a typical ranger. She learns to draw on the power of herbs and other natural ingredients in her favored terrains, making salves and poultices to help heal and focus her connections to magic. Eventually she even gains the ability to make extracts similar to the alchemist class feature.
Focused Enemy (Ex): At 1st level, a master herbalist selects one favored enemy, and can choose one organization or category of creatures (like “poachers”) as her enemy. She does not gain additional favored enemies at higher levels. She does get to increase his favored enemy bonus by +2 at 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th level. This otherwise acts as and replaces the standard favored enemy ability.
And yes, a ranger with this archetype is eligible for the Thuvian Alchemist prestige class.
Oh! I found it now:
Inner Sea Faiths, page 3 wrote:
A character able to select a domain can take any subdomain granted by her divinity, even if the divinity does not also grant the subdomain’s associated domain. The character receives all the abilities and spells normally granted by taking that subdomain, including the domain powers of the associated core domain that aren’t replaced by the subdomain, even though the divinity cannot grant that core domain by itself.
Thank you both!
Where can I find this rule? I always supposed that a "strange" subdomain modified one of the normal domains of the deity rather than its original domain.
A couple of questions since I'm working on this now...
The Totems edge text says:
The Totem text also says that a barbarian can take revelations from his mystery as edges. You said "talents" above in this thread, though. Which is correct?
After much thinking, I found that this build could be awesome:
Bought it, mostly for curiosity and excitement about the Shapeshifter.
