This is just plain silly.
DM fiat would be putting a person as dangerous as Renkai supposedly is, anywhere near an egress point out of whatever plane he's stuck in.
If he was sent to hell, he'd be constantly watched, messed with and would be years' travel from any portal out. They may not even put him in a cell, just think let him think he got out and is escaping, and watch him walk endlessly for years to get to where he thinks the exit is.
In short, it would be far likelier to be DM fiat to allow a 16 year old kid, no matter his power level, to escape Hell, the Abyss, etc. by himself.
Asgardians are from Asgard.
Darl Elves are from Svartalfheim.
Jotun are from Jotunheim.
Following your own logic, Lord Snow, did you find it odd that the ice giants didn't wear gleaming armor and use swords and such? Or was it much more believable that they had their own way of fighting, using their innate talents?
Any class played by a more experienced player is going to produce a character that seems more "powerful" than a novice player with the same class.
It is what it is. This should not be used as a means to measure the power levels of a class.
A PFS GM has to accept every player and character that shows up to his table?
A better solution would probably be to not GM for PFS if you can't handle all of the allowed things, but the other questions are still valid.

May want to add:"The arcanist can expend one point from her arcane reservoir to add a metamagic feat she knows to a spell as she casts it, using a higher-level spell slot as normal, but using the spell’s original casting time."
As is, I could see it possibly being interpreted as not requiring that she actually know the feats to use them.
What if it's not a channel per se, but a static 10 or 15' radius aura?
Maybe instead of harping on the favored weapon ;) we expand the aura feature of the cleric forthe warpriest. Make it a visible tangible thing, where it's light for a good cleric, dark for an evil one.

So while they are proficient will all martial weapons, they can only choose a simple for a favored? No thanks. This needs to change.
What if the animal companion was a nature spirit, and could change it's shape based on what was needed at the time?
TL;DR: The companion gets the wildshape...
Sounds like a similar concept to the Beastlord from EQ, or the White Lion from WAR.
This could be done here as well, with the existing Hunter, it just needs some tweaking.
Except for, ya know, in a game where your multiclassed character isn't as strong as a single classed one of equal level...
I think the channel ability should be tweaked a bit.
This overall reminds me very much of the Divine Champion PrC from Complete Divine, which in my mind is a good thing :)
I feel like when a character sees one of these guys enter the fray, they should clench up a bit. These guys (in my mind, anyway) represent the gods' wrath more than their cleric bretheren.
The "drow is evil and black" issue is definitely a big problem. I personally don't agree with it, but it's probably the biggest reason a Drizzt movie will never even be considered. It's simply a firestorm that no movie studio is going to want to walk into. It comes up as a side issue in other movies like Thor 2 or Lord of the Rings, but it would be part of the main story, and a significant part at that, for a Drizzt movie, and that becomes a major problem for a movie studio. For all that most gamers aren't really bothered, a large portion of the general public would go nuts no matter how it was handled.
Yeah, cuz this totally happened with Thor 2, which had Dark Elves.One of the main antagonists was played by a black actor, so it must be an agenda thing, amirite?!? After all, they were trying to turn the whole universe black!!
How many out cries from Thor 2 did you hear, claiming the movie was purposely trying to portray the "Dark" elves who wanted to turn the whole Universe "dark" as anything remotely analogous to real life?
Who even thinks this way?
Chainsaw hands and shotguns would be kinda OP...
And once again we see how AWESOME PvP makes things. Let's allow, nay, ENCOURAGE people to make role play decisions that are disruptive to other players and the collective good time. People are mature enough to do it right.
That choice has already been made.Now, he has to survive a fight with a zombie oracle.
To paraphrase Spock:
I played a "good" necromancer in Eberron who had an ogre skeleton as a 'pet'. It wore armor and wore a hooded cloak. Prestidigitation daily kept him clean. It wasn't tough. He never took him into town, but that disguise usually worked while travelling on the road.
Damiani, same here, but I'd also like to be able to read a post on a game site with out having to translate it from old formal English into everyday English, or from horrible misspelled or completely wrong word into, well, English.
When it's a character of another race, you think "Oh, they're RPing an accent or something." When it's a human, and a professor, you think "How are they gonna teach anything to anyone if they're speaking pidgeon English?"
