Is there a negative energy discovery for the alchemist bomb?

I would like to make a request for a virgin art poster of this cover. It is by far my favorite one to date.

One of our group will be out for at least six weeks and we are in the middle of RotRL. So I am looking for a quick module to run to the rest of us busy for six weeks. They all look good and we have played a few over the years. I am looking maybe for one the newer ones from the last year or two. Level and style don't matter just needs to be able to be accomplished in six weeks, as stated above. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as well as extra thoughts on any modules you may suggest. No spoilers please as I don't know if my clan will be watching these forums.

Okay I know the rules state the following:
The magus chooses the blade's type upon gaining the blade, and once chosen, it can't be changed.
But if black blade is destroyed could it's type be changed during the ritual to reforge it?
Unbreakable (Ex): As long as it has at least 1 point in its arcane pool, a black blade is immune to the broken condition. If broken, the black blade is unconscious and powerless until repaired. If destroyed, the black blade can be reforged 1 week later through a special ritual that costs 200 gp per magus level. The ritual takes 24 hours to complete.
I ask this because I feel I have made a poor choice for my black blade. I would like to change it without killing off my character and bringing in his long lost twin with all the same abilities but a different black blade. I was hoping to do something that fit the rules and also fit within the realm of possibility (for a roleplaying fantasy game that is).
The character is level seven in the Rise of the Runelords. I am sure there has to be someone capable of destroying a black blade if my character saps it of all of its arcane pool. I plan on changing it from a bastard sword to katana. We have a ninja in the group who could help me retrain the exotic weapon feat. I really dont know why I chose the bastard sword at the time. The katana makes more sense for the higher crit range and a descent amount of damage. I wanted and extotic weapon sword for flavor though which is why I did not chose scimitar and go down that path.

I am not trolling here and don't want to see any negative comments. It is a simple question, are any of you out there just happy with Pathfinder. I know I am, but it seems like all I see is negative thoughts on this game mechanic or that class is over powered or whatever. I just think it would be nice to have one thread out there where people take time to say something nice about Pathfinder, the game, we know the Paizo people are amazing. I see that all over the messageboards and have experienced it myself.
I will start.
I love the class archtypes, I was horrible about multi-classing in 3.5 and never was able to build what I wanted. The archtypes have saved me some serious headaches. Racial substitutions are awesome too, no two (state your race here) need be the same.

My question here is not with the feats but with the description in the Blood Drinker Feat itself.
"Feeding on unwilling intelligent creatures is an evil act."
Why? I know my sister the Vegan could give me a hundred reasons, but really it is not that much different than any predator feeding on a prey creature. Why does being "intelligent" put you on some kind protected species list. Come on a guy has to eat right... some just have special needs. And haven't I seen people on the blogs asking about making a good aligned assassin. How is that any different? Feeding does not always mean killing, yet any adventurer worth his or her salt will kill dozens if not hundreds of "intelligent" creatures in the course of their adventuring career. That is quite a bit of wasted potential in the eyes of a dhampir.
So I say to all you playing a dhampir out there to make your voice heard. If the monk players can get flurry of blows changed by Zura we can get the Blood Drinker Feats changed as well.

I seem to be having trouble finding spells with "curse" discriptor to add to my spell list. Also just to be clear this does not place them in my spellbook, but can be used with
knowledge pool if I don't add them to my spellbook... right?

Simple question... can a Magus using the words of power system use Knowledge pool (paying arcana points) to prepare a magus spell into the appropriate spell slot?

The Kensai recieves the canny defense ability, Int bonus to AC upto class level. Then one of the suggested arcana is prescient defense which grant the magus his/her Int bonus to AC against a particular enemy. Would this stack, does the magus then apply his/her Int bonus to AC twice against this one opponent?

What does it look like? Can any one point me towards a picture of one (other thatn the sword lord pic in the primer) or what they think one might look like. I'm thinking something between a fencing sabre and a katana. I don't know why it's so important to me but it is driving me crazy.

I was wondering while looking at making an inquisitor of Nethys, why not an inquisitor who uses wizard schools (and sub schools) instead of domains. Possibly a variant spell list, something close to the witch's spell list combining arcane with divine. Then maybe replace someother class functions, such as bane and greater bane, with blade thirst or disruptive and spellbreaker. Any other thoughts or possible variant ideas? I see this variant as something of a mage hunter or hunter mage, or however you see it. Judgement could be used to close the distance to a wizard or other major caster through the more protective powers and then shifting to the more attack orrientted powers once in melee range. Access to arcane spells would allow for better counter spell chances.
