I'm making a Bard whose primary Perform is Comedy. I know that the different types of Perform Skills aren't directly tied to the different Bardic Performances (outside being visual or audible), but if this Bard is using Inspire Courage, how would that be flavored coming from the Perform (Comedy) skill? Instead of telling an epic tale of great heroes passed, or being the group's hype soundtrack, I'm picturing Jim Gaffigan saying "Hooot Pockeeeetts" while his Barbarian friend howls with laughter and rips another man's spine out of his neck. Thoughts, anyone?
I would be careful to not let the jokes your bard is telling go to far as to insult someone at the table but as far as bardic performance inspiring someone to kill, I think perform (comedy) could do that in a very bizzare but interesting way. I wonder if there's a Jester archetype out there?
I once had a coworker who (humorously) picked on anybody and everybody he met. He had a whole littany of yo mama jokes. We just happened to work on the far side of bullet-proof glass from armored car truck drivers. One day this new driver came in to make a delivery and my coworker started in on him with his yo mama jokes. The poor delivery guy got so incensed we both thought he was going to draw his gun and start shooting! Thankfully, my coworker stopped his antics and the delivery guy cooled down.
Speaking as someone whose brother was permanently injured as a result of coworker harassment going to far, what your coworker was doing was downright deplorable. I hope either you or someone else reported him to the management of whatever company you worked for at that time.

I will probably get attacked for this...but maybe Arshea is not being represented because s/he is unnecessary and badly written deity.
I couldn't disagree more but I respect your opinion. I think Arshea fills a very important niche in the Pathfinder universe that most tabletop roleplaying companies have been hesitant to use.

I just don't think this deity should exist when Cayden, Gorzeh, Sivanah, Shelyn and Calistria fill the role much better.
So, are you saying all we should have is Deities and other beings of worship such as Empyreal Lords shouldn't exist at all or am I misunderstanding you??

Who do evil or neutral transgender people in Golarion worship?
I think evil as a concept would encourage discrimination and intolerance against transgender people dude rather than tolerate it.

I agree with Dhenn, I'd love to see more stuff for Psychopomp Ushers and Primal Inevitables.
PRIME Inevitables you mean (^_~) but yeah, a prestige class focusing on the Psychopomps and Inevitables would be awesome (also the Protean Lords, Elemental Lords, Whore Queens, etc etc). :D

Actually, I do. I also want to see stats of your servants the Seduction Devils (aka the Lillims). :D

Also, am I the only one who gets a kick out of the possibility of abominations making an appearance one day? I know Asuras are supposed to be the result of divine mistakes but an even larger mistake could be a god giving into lust and mating with an outsider resulting in the birth of a monster as powerful as a nascent demon lord, infernal duke, or daemonic harbinger! :D
The nupperibo and the eye of the deep both have the advantage of having appeared in the Adventure Path line, although the latter is beholder-y enough that Paizo might not want it simply out of a desire to distance their brand from iconic D&D creatures. ^_^
Maybe they could make them giant floating eyeballs capable of generating storms whose tendrils can burrow through skulls and turn humanoid beings into berserk slaves instead? :D

Hells yes! I wish they could do Espers too but considering each and every Esper was unique I doubt that would work. Also both ideas might piss off Squeenx. :(
Maybe the introduction of Wurms (not Linnorms but massive / long dragon serpents that have no wings, arms, or legs but crash through their terrain as they slither along at fantastic speeds)? Sorta like the Craw Wurm from Magic the Gathering?
Also, the Cheshire Cat would be cool as a Tane designed to spy, infiltrate, confuse, and ultimately defeat the enemies of the Eldest through intelligent (or possibly occult-based) methods.
What do you have against the Addams Family?!?!
LOL. I was trying to make a joke about you attempting to woo Kalindlara's heart with your Adams family wiles while I'm stuck single and alone. No worries though. ^_~

Okay, so...let's see now...(whips out daily planner)...so...go grocery shopping...get new tires for car...pick up birthday card and present for friend...

My best friend (while slightly drunk): Aliens...hahaha...as if they could possibly exist.
Me:...oh, they EXIST ALRIGHT!
My best friend (still drunk):...sooo...little gray men then?
Me:...OHOHOHO...oh, you think aliens are little, oh Alan, your so funny. Nope, their not little. THEIR PLANET SIZED! To this day scientists pray like CRAZY that they never NOTICE US!
(the next day)
My best friend (now sober):...I'm going to stop talking to you while I drunk because HOLY HELL YOU GAVE ME NIGHTMARES LAST NIGHT!

Hmmm...sooo...there's going to be five new Dragons and their going to be OUTER plane-based. Also I seem to remember seeing the words "virtuous" and "heavenly" in the book's description of the new dragons (although it could have just been my imagination). So, maybe Dragons based on Elysium, Heaven, Nirvana, the Boneyard, and Axis then?

Cool but is there a reason you only had the NPC aid the party when a party member died? Were four PC's plus a PC-run-NPC deemed too much in terms of party power? Quinn's corruption definately sounds like the ghoulish kind. That's unfortunately one of the harder Corruptions to cure as there's no specific step-by-step rule process of ridding it from the victim (unless your GM would count fasting and an atonement spell enough). What worries me is he's eating normal food as if he's starving (and not eating people...yet). Kinda varies from the standard Ghoul Corruption there. Scary but I suppose that's the point eh? ;)
Do the four PC's have any allies in this adventure? Maybe a Sleepless Detective or cleric of Pharasma? Also, how exactly did they survive the Marsh Giant?
Introducing that level of risk takes gall and while (in the immortal words of Worf) "I like gall" I'm sure the party may have been miffed if it had resulted in a wipe out.
Ultimate NPC's: Detailing Lv. 1 - 20 NPC's from the other core classes as well as NPC's from the other core prestige classes.
Ultimate Prestige: Detailing all prestige classes introduced by Pathfinder and giving an example stat block for each one.
Ultimate Monsters: Detailing more monsters with heroic classes / prestige classes / and possibly even mythic ranks.
So, the "Sword Devil" archetype of the Ranger class gives up hunter's bond (or at least having an animal companion), favored enemy, favored terrain, and spellcasting.
In return, it can allow a PC to stay competitive without wearing armor (kinda useful for those nasty at night surprise attack raids or when your armor is sundered) and has a few other abilities we'll probably see later on.
Welp, only one word can describe this archetype: AWESOME! :D
So we're getting stats for Red Sonja as well as the Archetype she uses. I wonder, are we also getting stats for Conan, Tarzan, Jane Porter, John Carter, and Dejah Thoris? Also, will the Tarzan featured in this comic be the version from the latest movie (aka John Clayton III [aka Lord Greystoke]) or the one from the graphic novels?
I always liked the Ravenloft Nosferatu vampiric bloodline template (aka beautiful vampire noble with unique powers that can resurrect when it's remains are exposed to moonlight) so I thought, why not make something similar in Pathfinder. Only these are the original vampires cursed by Zura and can also transform into large, bat-like monsters (like Castlevania's Dracula).
As for the Loxonal, not so much a race as a type of celestial (aka Agathion) who despise fiends with a passion and love nothing better than to wade into the thick of fiendish armies and start crushing heads with their dual-wielded warhammers! :D
