An optimizer can play a rogue just fine as is.
My first concern mirrors your's. I don't see it being so bad, but I have not thought much on it. So I give it a 3 out of 10 in "insanity", you are blurring what a fighter and rogue are as we'll as opening the possibility of a very magical rogue (especially gill men).
Cleave ends if you miss. That's not a house rule.
It is super easy to detect the fake, just a dc 20 sense motive or a perception vs disguise roll. It's more of a sex bot or decoy.
The samurai is an awesome class:Challenge + haste + full attack + improved critical = bloody mess
I just finished JR with a samurai using suishen:
A +2 sword is great when you get him but that never improved. The utility powers were nice though but I wouldn't say they changed the game much, just saved a little coin.
I think the idea is you cannot drop something tied to you like a backpack so first you need to manipulate the latch to drop it.
Invisibility: Can you see yourself when you're invisible?
Because being invisible doesn't give you penalties on actions that require you to be able to see exactly what you're doing (such as picking a lock), you can assume that you can at least see yourself well enough to perform such actions without penalty. Whether this means you can see yourself as if you were not invisible, can see yourself as a ghostly image, or some other description is up to the GM, so long as the description doesn't hinder your own actions.

I think an obvious solution has been found. Make pages out of something unaffected by water and just use arcane mark to make all of the pages.
Magic is special and mysterious you shouldn't expect a novice to fix something archmagi have not solved. By not using the ink you lose the essence, color, taste, smell, and texture of the spell book.
The idea could work fine in some campaigns, but a sorcerer sounds better if you are worried.

Anyway command undead and control undead can make a zombie do almost anything.
Why does how much someone likes you matter if they wouldn't give a dieing friend a discount on a remove disease potion?
It is a huge assumption diplomacy works on the guy or that the shop keeper will waste time talking to you about something that's not business. These people sell things and are to a charity.
Appraise should be the best way to do this.
I would not apply ability mod to skills or have each skill include some uses involving straight skill rolls. Ability mods could unlock extra ways to use the skill.
I think we have a god number of attributes in PF. Reducing could be fine many other games do it.
If any ability was to go, int would be my first pick. It can be replaced with skills.
Weapon focus is like the feat tree for fighters. I would take any advice contrary to that with a grain of salt.
Weapon focus doesn't let you do anything new. Sure as a pre req or if you have a low to hit chance, but a fighter starting with 16 str and using a decent weapon just doesn't need it.
Confusion instead of illusions? I watched the video but it didn't mention blindness, he definitely didn't seem blind. 3.5 had a way for a psion to get blind sight at his telepathy range in dungeonscape or a similar aberration themed book.
Edit: I don't remember how I got telepathy, maybe thrall herd.
Wraith strike, you are talking about gm fiat and ignoring WBL. Wasting a standard action casting a gate spell will just get the wizard killed or the PC to retreat.
The cost to protect a powerful being from other unknown powerful beings for a longer term is beyond an npc or PC.
Lvl 20 wizard" protect me"
I am playing a samurai in the jade regent AP he is 13levels awesome. (20 pt buy I think his base stats with the human bonus in str were 18, 14, 12, 8, 10, 14)
I have made some questionable feat choices but it boils down to power attack, curmongeon smash, improved critical, and iron will. I delayed shatter defences and have yet to use it (just leveled) due to doing so much damage with challenge and full attacks.
Order of the cockatrice is real good.
I have not been mounted much at all, but I also didn't put any feats into it and have left her behind on many occasions, due to the pcs over protiveness for her. Early on she was essentially an other PC with 3 attacks and high str.
Edit: mine is a lot like Muser's build /play style but I didn't follow the feat path as fast.
summon (level 9, any 1 CR 19 or lower demon 100%) kinda makes binding a balor pointless. Besides a cr 20 demon has lived a longer and tougher existence than your wizard and is probably prepared for this.
Also what spell allows you to bind more than 18 HD? A wish puts the effect in the GMs hands and does not have the bonus options for magic circle/planar binding.
Edit: gate is a concentration spell, this makes it not good for combat.
Make sure to include k(arcane) and spell craft checks.
Low DCs are fine in combat and a few higher ones when they are allowed to take 10, to weed out the under skilled. You could also throw in some alternate solutions when pcs roll really high on some tests - getting them show off points and potential better opportunities after the test (job security, rank, research grants...).
Hard to discuss this with out saying spoilers. Flagged for spoilers.(yeah people should know to keep out just based on your title).
The rings should stack so you can use multiple
I think something like "improved blend" an improved invisibility with less bonus to stealth.
Maybe a mind blank effect too.
Or just +2 to AC, attack, damage, reflex that stacks if you wear two
We don't know the long term effects, using it to much will definitely kill you though. Con drain may be appropriate, I'm sure an aes sedai could heal someone who used it.
Sounds like what you want to do is a barbarian pure and simple. Make him human and put a 14 in your int and your favored class option as +1 skill and youll get 8 skills/lvl. As your extra feat give him track. You can even take the suspicious barbarian archetype from UC.
Tracking is free in the survival skill now. No feat needed.
