None of them felt like a good fit (i.e., no Kyton or Shadow), but I could use Devil (since that is what Kytons where in 3.5).
Using the existing "Subtypes" available how would one replicate the the Shadow Caller (Fetchling racial archtype) summoner.
For the summoning abilities, leave it unchanged.
The Eidolon is the problem. None of the available subtypes seem like a good fit.
Note: this is for an NPC villain.

I have heard that Kobolds are considered too powerful for PC use. Is that plausible to you?

Try an Agathion
In fairness, they do need to ad some more subtypes. :)
Actually, if the role-playing leap is too hard, try going with a Daemon as you base type.
True. Phil Coulson did not exist before the first Iron Man movie.

I do not agree.
Commander Gonzoles is still wrong. By keeping things "off the books" he kept that information out of HYDRA's hands - else Coulson would have nothing to rebuild with.
And the "Theta Protocol" may well originate after The Winter Soldier, coming from Coulson's mind rather then Fury's.
It's used as a symbol representing the mutation rate in a population.
This is likely the intended meaning.
For contract reasons, they cannot say "mutation" so they needed another way to describe the "enchanced."
So "Theta Protocol" is a plan to deal with the rapidly increasing numbers of the gifted.

... Hence my comment above about Joss Whedon's "hissy fit".
(e.g.: We know they would never kill Captain America, but it breaks immersion when he is barely inconvenienced by stuff that should kill him)
Proposition: Whedon put the infamous "Untron shooting Captain America" as a kind of temper tantrum because he was not allowed to kill any of the major characters.

I believe Jason has something in mind (and hence, production) for that. Should be coming up for release soon.
Question: Mr. Spicer, since you provided scaling information to go from the 20 build used to a 15 point build, do you have any thoughts on how to scale up to a 25 point build?
Or do you wish to leave that to the purchaser (or better, give the player(s) the opportunity to further customize the heroes)?

Which leads to ... the plot of Avengers 2.
Or ... it could mean an internal debate is still ongoing.
Don't try to read too much into what is going on.
Any updates on these?

All of them :-)
Not sure I completely agree there.
I was thinking more along the lines of what areas have not been the setting for an AP yet.
In my order of preference
That's true. Protean would work well for this.
No, but they didn't include "Qliphothic" in the subtypes, so that might be a limitation on your concept.
Thank you everyone for your feedback. I have decided to run Rise of the Runelords. As for new players making bad decisions, this is why I have carried a house rule from my old group that gives players three sessions to field test characters.
Just stay alert for potential TPKs and you should be fine. If you're using the anniversary edition then it's much better, but you still (as a GM) need to keep your eyes open.

I didn't suggest most of those because the OP listed three specific options - Emerald Spire, Rise of the Runelords, and GiantSlayer.
They are not handled: There is no mention of archetypes at all.
B.T.W., more subtypes would be helpful. Specifically Fey and Genie.
True. But I doubt Dr. Johnny Fever would have complained about making the Summoner a 9 level spell list if he then had to have a d6 hit die and 1/2 BAB. :)
Fixed your post for you. ;)
The only one that is mushy is Magus
If you were to base your selection based mainly on introducing people to Pathfinder, which AP would you pick? The ones that most interest me to run are Giantslayer, Rise of the Runelords, and Emerald Spire.
Rise of the Runelords uses several "classic" themes, which is good. But parts of the AP can become a meat grinder, and this could be discouraging (Xenisha for instance).
Giantslayer is not yet completely available, so it is hard to evaluate.
I don't know enough about Emerald Spire to offer any input there.

That same revaluation is going to destroy Afterlife.
Also, was he after Whitehall because he was trying to recover her missing pieces? That would give him an interesting reason for being angry with Coulson for killing Whitehall - and thus making recovery near impossible.
Hopefully that will limit some of the most egregious abuses.

I wonder if Fury went through that kind of evolution himself.
While I am not always in agreement with the advice given for the themes, I don't think that the advice they gave the dragon sorcerer is bad. Their 1st Level Bloodline Power is claws after all.
I wonder if anyone on Gonzales' team ever told Steve Rogers that Fury was making the wrong call for using him?
Remember, as we saw in the flashback scenes, before the battle with Hydra none of the "real S.H.I.E.L.D." members were questioning Fury's orders.
(... and we still don't know what changed to cause them to repudiate Fury now.)

It's on hiatus right now while I figure out what to do with it. We have about 7 customers total for it, so I'm, trying to decide what to do next in the absence of customer demand.
If you only have seven customers for it, I might suggest Queen Elsa's advice: "Let it go."
(Pity, I was interested in it. But if it is not going to end, I might as well look elsewhere. :( )
