I honestly think that this books suffers from it's branded title, as occult I would say is already well represented in the flavor of existing casters like the witch or shaman of which this book does not go more in depth on . In all honesty I thought something in this would trace back mechanically to the slam dunk that is the oracle. Specifically in for things like the curses and the ancestral spirits. Also all the psychic classes while interesting lose in flavor as they all feel like they were painted Occult for the purpose of the book.

With the exception of the kineticist, these are all classes that I would feel comfortable playing in a supernatural campaign set in 1920s Earth. That's plenty occult.

Being such a thematic spell, MM can be a worthy specialty. However, I think this class would be done a great service if greater emphasis was also given to other force spells.
That's the Argent Savant class, I do believe. The Force Missile Mage prestige class is purely built around Magic Missile and nothing else. Well, Shield too, but that's one half of the Magic Missile portfolio. The Argent Savant (I might have the name wrong) was the pure force caster.
Right you are. I didn't realize that bit of information! Anyhow, my opinion still stands that its a big stretch to turn this into ten levels. Perhaps infusing some Ardant Savant into the class would help it feel less forced.

I've wanted to create a character with both prestige classes for a long time; Pathfinder prestige class design could probably accommodate a fusion of both.

People who have never heard of any of Martin's books other than Game of Thrones should look for such works as Tuf Voyaging, Sandkings, Fevre Dream, and the Wild Cards series.

Isn't Desna Mothra? Or at least Her herald is?

(Now we need a rewrite of the Night Monarch with kaiju subtype added, for when Desna gives it that extra boost.)

Chairface doesn't actually have any special powers, so why not just treat him as a human with a really weird head and give him a suitably master-criminal class package?

My own inspiration would, of course, be an alchemist. Possibly a goblin. BAD IS GOOD, BABY! DOWN WITH ANDORAN! ONE OF THESE DAYS, MILKSHAKE -- BOOM!

The gods won't PREVENT anyone from worshipping them, because they can't.

This isn't quite true. It's well known from SKR's articles that gods have the ability to send minor omens to their worshipers; Gyronna apparently abuses this by flat-out murdering any male who has the temerity to do so. (But she's a demigod, and it seems like the less powerful you are the more direct intervention you can get away with.)

It's not "goblin ancestors," it's the four barghests who Lamashtu sponsored to demigodhood, and whose spilled blood created goblins. One account says Lamashtu stole them from Hell, another says she had to deal with Asmodeus to get them, and the latter version is the one with the fear of contracts.

My goblin headcanon says that while their hatred of dogs is purely cultural, their fear of horses is because horses universally instinctively try to kill any goblin that gets near them, which would cause problems in any populated area since horses are pretty much everywhere in human lands. (House rule: you have to expend a trick to train a horse not to automatically attack any goblin adjacent to it.)

There's a large and glaring typo in the upper left corner of page 16.

That's not a representation of the Solar System. There's only one Solar System, and we're in it. It's called Solar because our sun is named Sol. Other star systems are called by their stars' names. Please give Golarion's sun a proper name so we can start calling its star system by its proper name.

Oh, here's another one: if the new Naturalist archetype goes with a humanoid eidolon, the Animal Focus ability can be used to, on a whim, convert that humanoid into any of twelve different furries. ^.^

After reading 5th Edition, my players and I said "smurf it" and instituted a house rule: every weapon on the Finesse list has Finesse as an inherent property, with Dex to damage as well. The WF feat no longer exists.

In other words, a pharmaceutical is created by science, and an alchemical item is created by magic.

I'm mostly on board with your interpretation, except for your misuse of the term "science," which I really wish you'd stop.

"Non-magical chemical processes," sure. But "science" isn't "things that aren't magic." "Science" is "the study of how the laws of physics work." If magical energies exist, and if they obey laws, the study of the laws that they obey constitute a field of scientific study. Wizards researching new spells are scientists. People crafting magic items are engineers.

...mostly, I'm loving this. Mostly.

Then I come to the "Protection from Technology" spell and my brain starts screaming in rage.

I can more or less accept that it would be able to identify and block electrically powered items and so forth, but how in every fiendish afterlife plane can this spell distinguish PHARMACEUTICAL COMPOUNDS from, I don't know, alchemical compounds, or (unliving) organic matter, or EVERY OTHER FORM OF MATTER IN THE UNIVERSE?!

Despite this characterization their moral status is somewhat more complex. Given that orcs were the result of twisted elves or humans depending on revision, it would follow that they should also have souls. Hence they should have free will, but how does one reconcile that with the pure evil depiction previously stated? When asked about whether orcs were born evil Tolkein said that they were not. He said that the abuse of orcish society was what twisted child orcs in a similar manner to how their ancestors were first changed, but that it was something he'd prefer not to dwell on. When further asked whether an orc could in theory be redeemed he said that they could, and that they would likely cease being an orc as a result. What ceasing to be an orc exactly meant was never elaborated on.

My Tolkien headcanon involves an extensive therapy ward in the Halls of Mandos devoted to ex-orc fëa, and Morgoth at the Dagor Dagorath wondering why the armies of the Valar number among them far more elves than, by his best calculations, can possibly have been born over the lifespan of the world... :)

The very first adventure ever published for Dungeons and Dragons involved infiltrating an evil temple that had been taken over by high-tech space aliens.

Arguments that science fiction has no place in D&D, or that the introduction of tech spells the end of an edition/product line, are simply, provably wrong.
