The Technology Guide is on the PRD because it is required for running Iron Gods, the newest Adventure Path.
If you do not like the Technology rules, then do not play Iron Gods.
And if you do not play Iron Gods, then no, you do not have to worry about winding up with chocolate lazors in your fantasy peanut butter.
okay, well I am set for RPG Superstar this year now
Trousers of the Beef Thief
Donning these trousers grants the wearer an enhancement bonus to Charisma of +2. Treat this as a temporary ability bonus for the first 24 hours the headband is worn.
In addition, once per day the wearer may designate a target to view the posterior of the wearer. The wearer's posterior must be perceivable by the target. The chosen target must make an immediate DC 19 Will saving throw. Upon a failed saving throw, the target is filled with lust and desire for the wearer. The target is overcome with the compulsion to rush to the wearer and passionately kiss or caress that wearer on its next turn, taking no other actions. If the target would not normally have lustful feelings toward the designated creature or object, it receives a +4 bonus on its saving throw.
A lone man stands fast against the demon horde, with nothing by his side but a sturdy sword and shield, standing firm against the darkness
assuming wheeled transportation and solid organization, you could get away with as few as 20 camp attendants and probably another 30 craftsmen, cooks, armorers, etc
anything less organized, not having access to wheeled carts or if cavalry is a factor and you could be looking at a baggage train/camp follower contingent that is as big, if not bigger, than the amount of trained soldiers
Ultimate Equipment is incredibly useful.

Also did everyone foget about the mythic adventures book or something? (Seriously going by that it seems the secret of mythic power is to take half your clothing off.)
see, I am fine with thisI call it the Tequila Theorem
because when I am deep into a half-rack of Schmidt's Ice, I sure feel pretty mythic
and at that point my shirt usually comes off
okay paizo it is story time
so my brother and I run a business together
it has been and will always continue to be a long hard road, but we have built something pretty cool and neither of us is hurting for money anymore because we have stayed the course and worked hard to build a good family business
that being said, there was a time a number of years back when we were really struggling and we were not sure our business was going to last much longer
we needed clients badly, because clients pay you money, so every new business meeting was vital
So this brings me to sitting in a meeting with my brother and a (at the time) prospective client
we begin talking to the potential client, explaining to her how to bring a few different divergent portions of her online sales effort into line
she was not really understanding us very well
now these days we can both sell a ketchup Popsicle to a woman wearing white gloves and have all sorts of fancy marketing materials, presentations and videos, but back then we both were not very good and did not have much to work with
so, my brother pulls out a sheet of paper
he draws a bulbous shape, explaining that it is one portion of her business, then he draws a few long horizontal lines to the right, connecting to another bulbous shape, showing her how two portions of her business relate
I look down at his drawing, about to contribute to the conversation...and I see it
he has drawn a boner
my brother has basically has basically drawn a big gigantic penis in front of this potential client
my jaw sets, my lip quivers as I can feel horrifying laughter bubbling up from inside me
I bite my cheek hard, my shoulders beginning to bob slightly from restraining myself from shuddering belly laughs
I know, based on the client's business model, what my brother is thinking and how he is going to explain the next part
I cannot let this happen
my eyes are watering and just for an instant I meet my brother's eyes across the table, silently pleading for him to not continue drawing
the client is staring at the drawing, nodding, following along, she does not see it
my brother gives me a quick odd look, narrowing his eyes, but continues speaking
I am about to lose it
I try desperately try to guide the conversation to another aspect of her business but I am terrified of bursting into convulsive laughter
my brother picks right back up, explaining how the third aspect of her business relates, drawing an even bigger bulbous shape directly under the first item, then outlining it with little dashed lines, all around it to show its importance, then drawing two thin lines to link it up to the first item
he has now drawn a hairy...testicular region...to go along with the large penis
I make an audible snnnnrrrrk sound, covering my mouth
yes I am infantile
the meeting concludes shortly after
we are walking out, we are not sure if we got the client, she says she will think about it
we are walking to our truck, my brother's jaw is working, he looks angry
he asks me what the hell was wrong with me in there, begins getting angry
I start laughing, I cannot help it
he gets mad, we get in the truck, he again asks me what the hell got into me
I cannot hold back
I tell him
"You just drew a massive penis and a set of balls in front of what could be one of our biggest clients ever"
He looks at me like I am insane
He starts to get mad, but I tell him
"Pull out the paper you drew on in there, look at it"
He is berating me even while pulling out the paper, still really angry and spitting out a storm of vitriol my way as he looks at the paper
he goes instantly silent, staying that way for a good ten seconds
he looks up at me, his face ashen
"I...I...wow...yeah...I drew a gigantic penis and ballsack, didn't I?"
I cannot help it, I begin to die laughing
he smiles, then begins laughing as well
I tell him
"Don't worry, brother, I hear like 8% of kids do it"
we laugh until our ribs hurt
we drive back to our tiny office, still chuckling
the phone rings shortly after we get back to our tiny one-room office that we share
it is the prospective client
she loved our pitch and our explanation, loved how down to earth we were and thought our explanation of her business processes was amazing
she becomes our biggest client, our business picks up and a few month later, we are out of the woods and on the way to where we are today
we still have the penis picture, framed
it is in a place of honor on the wall, at my brother's house
the moral of the story:
everyone accidentally draws a penis and ballsack in front of a client every once in a while, paizo
but sometimes that penis and ballsack can be a turning point to the light at the end of the tunnel...and I think the ACG will be one hell of a turning point, in addition to a lot of other really cool stuff you all have done and will continue to do
keep your chin up, paizo
As an inquisitor of Norgorber and specifically for the aspect of the Reaper of Reputation, an inquisitorial character would most likely either be tasked with stopping those who would give away their deity's blessed secrets or with properly...motivating...others in the fold to strive harder in acquiring/collecting deeper secrets.
"Okay, welcome to the first session of the new adventure path!"
"Rad! Do we start in a tavern?"
"Let's see...nope, says here you all are currently in a...uh, an Arcanist."
"Okay, yeah. So you all are in an Arcanist...what do you want to do? You can go investigate the recent..uh...investigator...or you can certainly travel to...uh...Bloodrager...town?"
"Dude what the hell?"
