Having only seen the ring used by PCs who worship Shelyn, I originally didn't see this item as too much of a problem. But, the more I read it over and look at how the developers have priced other things (and their own building-magic-item rules), the more I wonder about it.
I like the drawback of being unable to dismiss it unless you have a Ring of Eloquence or some other way to speak in bird form, but still, yea.
My idea for a possible fix would be to just stipulate that this item (and IMHO all feats/spells/items/etc. from Inner Sea Gods) can only be used by a worshiper of Shelyn (or the respective deity). That would mean the PC would need to be within one step of her alignment, roleplaying as a follower of Shelyn's ways as mentioned by both Sebastian and BretI (above), etc.
There are a bunch of items in ISG that have potential for abuse or are overpowered, and that could see roleplay elements from the world setting of Golarion being used to help mitigate some "solo the scenario" builds.

My point of the question is why it would matter what Adopted is (Social or otherwise) compared to the trait that it allows to be taken with it. I would consider Adopted to be a placeholder, where the character would still be taking two traits (the one with adopted and the other).
Because it's two traits. Adopted is a Social Trait that allows you to get a Race Trait you can't otherwise access. It's all there, black and white...
This is the type of thing this document was meant for.
No - what you seem to want is a change to Ultimate Campaign (or Gnomes of Golarion), in which case you are on the wrong part of the Paizo boards.
Yea, in the last four years I've stopped using 4shared - too many pirated things on there for my comfort.
That said, I put a few versions of these sheets into a zip file for my local lodge, so now they're on Dropbox:
Hope these help!
Was there an errata to Fencing Grace that nobody told anyone at Paizo about?

I will freely admit that I did not read the whole thread (time crunch at the moment), but as someone who enjoys playing LG characters in ways that some question and who engender really great RP - and also as a lover of Hellknight lore;
- Order of the Godclaw incorporates more gods that a Paladin could worship than gods they could not.
- Order of the Pyre was the only order to defy the decision to unify behind Thrune and their order's focus is in the destruction of cults and such.
I think it is very possible to play a Paladin or LG character in either of these orders, and at the same time impossible to play one as part of other orders (Rack and Gate come to mind fairly quickly... I could see a Paladin of a LN god such as Abadar being okay with Order of the Nail, maybe, too).
It's all in the nuances of what constitutes "good" and what constitutes "law" in the eyes of the deity first and foremost, and in the character's relationship with their god.
Pending the new book coming out in a few months, I've been able to read everything published about Hellknights, and the more I read, the more ways I find to justify playing one with *any* Lawful alignment out there.
Hope this helps/adds to the discussion :)

What if, instead of embracing the glory-filled tales of Ostog the Unslain, the elder brother was overtaken by envy, jealousy, and rage?

Interested in watching Paizo staff run through Pathfinder (and PFS) adventures?
Check out the Pathfinder Twitch Marathon tomorrow from 10am-8pm PST (1pm-11pm EST)!

One of our players was running a Lem pre-gen, and wished he was big. Introducing, Dire Lem!
Meanwhile, my PC ended up emulating a Cleric he knows when one of the party got dropped in the final fight - so all of a sudden the Hellknight Signifier in Mithral Full Plate casts "Heal" to bring the party member from -6 almost back to full!
Speaking of Casandalee...
The Divinity Drive:
I've been trying to figure out a good holy symbol for our new Iron Goddess, and since Unity incorporated a spiked design with his own aggregate's eye in the center, I thought that maybe Casandalee would also use something recognizable from how PCs in the Iron Gods AP would have associated with her.
THIS is my idea - simple, straightforward, and IMHO a neat emblem for an AI Goddess.
In my never-ending quest to find neat fantasy-gaming art and artists to commission to create character art for my PFS characters, I stumbled onto this guy who had created some really neat digital maps of Golarion. I even printed out one of his maps (Island of Kortos) to use whenever I GM #6-98.
I've followed his work for a bit, but once I discovered he was a PFS player, I wanted to give him the props he clearly deserves!
This guy, and his maps, are pretty awesome, and I wanted to share this find with the PFS community at large! Hope you enjoy his maps as much as I do!

Thank you for running a great game, Tektite!
Also, it gives me pleasure to announce that this was GM Tektite's 10th Special/Exclusive (having already well past 150 games total), and as I was invited to this game in particular in part to observe him, I have officially recommended him for his 5th GM Star to the OPC.
I haven't gotten a confirmation yet, but I'm sure it will come fairly soon! :)
My players *loved* this scenario yesterday - look for me to leave a review on it soon. Very well done, Mike!
One tiny thing I noticed - in Area C the ladder is in the northwest corner of the map, not the northeast corner as the scenario states. Very minor error, but since I noticed I figured I should post it.
After having talked this over with a few VOs I trust on rules calls, the RAW appears to let them stand as non-standard item slots (with the one item previously mentioned as a head slot), since they *are* specifically marked as such on the chronicle sheet!
Looks like a nice surprise will be in order for some of my players in a few days when I run this!
If you're around online tonight, the Know Direction Pathfinder podcast is live right now with PFS OPC Tonya Woldridge as well as ACG Designer Tanis O'Connor!
If you hop on while the podcast is live, you can ask questions and have them answered on-air!

I'm waiting for the new Lamplighter archetype from "Heroes of the Streets" to make it in... decided I'm going to play that one from 0XP.
As soon as I saw that Archetype, my first thought was, "well, there is certainly one *very* happy eponymous GM out there right now, I'd wager!" :)
I've got two options for ya.
Low-power demon who shows up twice in seasons 4-5 (once in a 1-5, once in a 3-7) but isn't super important to the plot -
Tower of the Ironwood Watch (Tier 5-9) (1st chronological appearance), Scars of the Third Crusade (Tier 1-5) (2nd appearance)
High-power demon who shows up twice in seasons 4-5 (once in a 3-7, once in a 7-11) and isn't *too* central to the plot, but has some major impact, but I luckily played the same PC in both scenarios and it was SO awesome when I ran into him the second time (this is the one I'd recommend, personally) -
The Blakros Matrimony (Tier 3-7) (1st chronological appearance), Vengeance at Sundered Crag (Tier 7-11) (2nd appearance)
