Alchemist/Master Chymist. Gestalt Brawler optional. :D
Oooh, crap. Yes. He's got to have some kind of mutagen (I forgot, since I only really knew Bane from Secret Six and he didn't use it much there.) Maybe Mutagenic Mauler?
I would love to see Paizo's Southern Garund treatment when they get around to it. What I'm especially hopeful for is a much broader treatment than fantasy Africa supplements often provide; RW Africa is just as much an admixture of different cultures, ethnicities, and geographic regions as anywhere (moreso, really, given its size) and has an incredible depth of history that is rarely explored and appreciated by most, IMO.

Kyton-themed AP Confirmed!!!
The two characters fighting the duergar are almost certainly iconics; one is pretty clearly the Psychic; the other (as has been pointed out) is most likely the older woman Spiritualist. The Green Phantom there looks almost exactly like the picture of the Phantom next to the Raging Golem picture (save for the color).
I think that blue aura surrounding their heads is supposed to be a psychic link (likely a telepathic bond spell).

Are the sahkil a new race of evil outsiders?
From Wes' post, it appears the Sahkil are the name for the corrupted psychopomps (so not a new race, per se).
Mysterious monsters revisited, in their section on Sasquatch, specifically call out a reclusive "half Sasquatch" race as being present in Arcadia. So I am guessing these are the same guys as the new 0HD race.
Maybe they're called Half-Quatches. :D
(Which means, when and if we get an Arcadia supplement, we've got these races at least that are known there: Human, Skinwalker, Halfquatch, and Syrinx.)
This is one class that seems very easily covered by existing classes/archetypes in the game already, and I'm not sure about the alignment shifting, simply because alignment doesn't really seem to have much in-game application (particularly in my games).
That said, I've been quite surprised by what Paizo has done with other concepts that seemingly were already covered (Arcanist, for one) and like more social/RP classes, so I am intrigued. (Appropriately enough for a book called Ultimate Intrigue.)
That's a good guess, David, and would fit with Erik's conjecture that Throne and Asmodeus aren't getting along.
My other notion is that perhaps it is Cheliax getting revenge on one or more of their wayward imperial nations that escaped their grasp- such as Andoran (which had its own recent sourcebook)- and bringing them back into the fold.
It's been said elsewhere about the Hell's Rebels AP that the Kintargo revolution is just one of many such uprisings taking place across Cheliax, and Hell's Vengeance looks like it will be another such, just taking place from the perspective of those who are seeking to maintain the status quo, rather than overthrow it (and Erik Mona posted something to support that idea earlier today as well).
So, for instance, if the PCs in Hell's Rebels are overthrowing the House of Thrune in Kintargo, then perhaps the PCs in Hell's Vengeance will be fighting an uprising in another city of the realm, or maybe even- given the recent Andoran book- reclaiming a portion of Andoran that slipped from the Empire's grasp in recent years (such as Augustana); that would certainly fit with the notion of "Vengeance."
I am sure that the dream dragon is one of the esoteric dragons but what could be the names of the others. Maybe astral, chakra, ethereal, esper, psychic, mind, spirit, life, nature, arcane, sacred, akashic, mystic, chi/ki, blood, bone, aether, quintessence, axiom, lore, and/or chaos.
I'd love to see a Nightmare Dragon, though I suspect the Dream Dragon is as close as we'll get.
huh. Though now I'm intrigued at the prospect of a Devils Revisited written with the prospect of those guys being your allies.
On the other end of the spectrum, all those stats for Angels, Agathions, and other like-minded good creatures won't be entirely wasted (save for the addition of possession or templates making them evil creatures to be fought).
I was just going to point that out. My recollection was that they'd moved all the other players out of the room by that point and needed someone to ask the "dumb" question. Daemonprince's memory jibes with mine.
In retrospect, they should have kept at least one of the other three there, but I think they needed Eddie and Iris elsewhere to do the whole "Screw the future! Marry me!" thing, and Joe was... I'm not actually sure why he wasn't around at the moment.
As for Lucifer? I will be shocked if this even makes it one season. At it's core it's still a show about making the devil the hero and that is a HARD sell on a good day. Claiming that it's based on a comic isn't going to make it sit better with the average viewer who's never even heard of the comic.
I'd say all you really need to do is make the devil the protagonist- there are many shows where the protagonist is not really a hero, and in fact has many despicable qualities (Breaking Bad, for instance). That would certainly be in keeping with the source material for Lucifer.
However, given the trailer here, I'd say you're pretty spot on in that they do appear to be trying to make him eminently a more heroic protagonist, and that certainly could pose problems with selling the narrative, particularly on a network show.
