Alfonso rushes to Treggor's side, and claps him on the back.
"Well, go get her, man! You're the best swimmer here! And it sounds like she has the hots for you, to boot."
Bardic Inspiration die for Treggor! I'll give one to anyone else who wants to go after her.
This sounds similar to the planar magic traits, like Impeded Magic. That could be an interesting feature of your world or magic system, in which natural features of the world inhibit magic tied to opposing concepts. So create water fails in the desert, fireball is weaker in the arctic, and acid splash fizzles in, um... a limestone quarry?
Even saying "Hey, look over there!" isn't a lie at all. You're not making a claim that there's something there worth looking at; you're just telling your opponent what you want them to do.
Likewise, feinting in combat isn't lying, because drawing back for a punch is not an implicit promise that you will follow through on that punch, rather than kick your opponent. Being hard to predict isn't lying, any more than changing subjects in a conversation when you don't want to tell the truth.
You sure are putting a lot of words in my mouth.
I'm no Trump fan, but every non-issue that people like you elevate to a crisis, just chips away at your credibility when it comes to the actually important things.
Or, you know, that some people can recognize an obvious joke.
The fact that the media is presenting an obvious joke like this as a serious proposal is exactly why Trump's supporters don't care what the media says about him.

Can I use Linguistics to aid someone's Diplomacy?

"As any nitwit can see, these letters are crude forgeries. Names misspelled, incorrect titles, and the author using rather bizarre dialects and idioms completely at odds with the supposed leaders' backgrounds. Is this what passes for evidence among this kangaroo court?"

Never understood why they call Trump Drumpf. Like, when I write or talk about Hillary I don't call her B#%$@ to be condescending to her even though I don't like her. Hell, I liked Sanders more.
Because everyone knows the best way to point out how petty and xenophobic a guy is, is to make fun of his funny-sounding foreign family name.
You're skilled enough to create terrible food. But you may not convince people that you weren't trying to make terrible food.
Your first example would be a bluff check, to pretend you don't know what you're doing.
The second example isn't a skill; it's a random quantity, similar to rolling damage on a fireball. You can't choose the value.
First off, VMC isn't PFS-legal, so Bardic Knolwedge is out. On the other hand, if you're OK with worshipping Irori, you can take one of those feats you just freed up and pick up Deific Obedience for a +4(!) sacred bonus to all Knowledges.
Also, Breadth of Experience isn't allowed for humans. You could switch to a Dwarf, Elf, or Gnome (gnome would be best with the Charisma boost), or swap it out for Dilettante, which would still be pretty good if you want to spread your skills around instead of hyper-focusing on specific Knowledges.

I don't think he's asking about spending PP on spellcasting services for the PCs, but rather for purchasing items for his GM credit character using PP. For that, you can just mark it on your sheet like you would a purchase you paid money for.

Rip: "We need to go to three different time periods to kill Vandal Savage simultaneously."
Stein: "OK, which one should we do first?"
Rip: "First? No, we need to split up into three teams and do it simultaneously."
Stein: "I don't think you understand what 'simultaneously' means. Even our entire team has never beaten Savage before. Besides, we have a time machine, remember?"
Rip: "I SAID WE'RE SPLITTING UP, OK?!"
Sarah: "Fine, let me get my sniper rifle, and I'll set up-"
Rip: "No sniper rifle. We kill him in hand-to-hand combat!"
Ray: "But Firestorm and I can fly and shoot energy beams."
Rip: "I SAID HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT, OK?!"
I don't see anyone claiming that the sexism wasn't realistic, but rather that it detracted from the show. While a show about a working woman overcoming sexism is all well and good, it's a tone mismatch with the rest of the MCU, which has otherwise avoided pretty much any significant social issues.
I love Captain America: The First Avenger but the inclusion of Gabe Jones as part of the unit stuck in my craw. The army wasn't integrated until after WWII in 1948. I know that he was part of the Howling Commandos in the comics but that bothered me a little bit too.
The cast of Hamilton would like a word with you.
Wait, which is it? Do you like that it accurately portrayed period attitudes with regards to sexism, or do you like that it ignored period attitudes with regards to racism?

That said, it is absolutely not the same to criticize a group of people who are defined as a group because they believe the same thing, which is their choice, as it is to lump together a group of people based on something as arbitrary and involuntary as a chromosome.

Funny, I don't remember seeing this doctrine in the Nicene creed...
Why would it? If we aren't talking about audio books, the difference between a paper book template and an e-book is the amount of copy protection and other DRM crap they put into the e-book, isn't it? That doesn't exactly add consumer value...
There is additional formatting/layout cost, because the needs for ebooks are different than what you already have done for a print version.
But basically, yeah, ebook production doesn't have to pay for the printing, shipping, or warehousing, so they should be cheaper. And in fact, lots of ebooks are cheaper, but those are typically self-published, indie, and small press books.
The big publishers jack up the prices on ebooks because they don't want people to buy them. They're frantically trying to prop up old-fashioned brick-and-mortar stores, because that's where they reigned supreme as gatekeepers. If they have to compete in an ebook market alongside indie and small presses who don't have the same corporate overhead, they can't stay competitive.
Huh? No, if it had said it replaced the Ranger's spellcasting, then you would not use any of the original text. But instead it alters it, so we use the original text except where it is contradicted by the new rules.
Likewise, it doesn't say that the type of spellcasting is altered, so it remains Divine.
You can absolutely get a higher CL wand crafted if you need it. For instance, a wand of scorching ray would normally be only CL 3, but could be made at CL 7 to get that second ray. While it's not as efficient in terms of cost/ray, firing 2 at once has its own advantages. Likewise, a CLW wand of a higher CL is less efficient in terms of cost/hp, but can heal faster, if that's important to you.

Piper whispers to her companions, "Ooh, I think this is one of those Iroran koan things."
She clears her throat and speaks clearly. "Our legs!"

How about animal companions?
My Mammoth Rider's megaloceros has Tribal Scars, because he was gifted to my PC from the Greattusk clan after adventuring in the Realm of the Mammoth Lords.
...OK, really he has it because I wanted the +2 to Overrun. But the lore just makes it cooler.
To be a little more specific, I'd suggest these benchmarks for "minimum contribution" for people who focus most of their resources on out-of-combat stuff:
Level 1-4: Aid Another, plinking with a crossbow/cantrip/Magic Missile wand, or topping off hp with a CLW wand
Level 5-8: Wands of minor buff spells (Vanish, Feather Step, Bear's Endurance); a problem-solving toolbox* for things like invisibility, darkness, difficult terrain, putting out fires, etc.; medium/long-duration pre-buffs (Heroism, Barkskin, Darkvision, etc.)
Level 9-12: Moderate-level buff spells (Haste, Blessing of Fervor, Stoneskin, Prayer, Freedom of Movement, etc.), a bigger problem-solving toolbox (for dealing with grapples, enchantments, poison, curses, etc.), minor blasting wands (Scorching Ray, Burst of Radiance)
At the very least, I would consider spending all of combat out of the away in full defense not hindering.
But you're not considering the opportunity cost at all.
Sure, someone hiding and going full defense isn't directly hindering the party, but did they take the spot of someone else who would be contributing more? Is there something else they could be doing instead, even as little as Aid Another or plinking with a crossbow? Did the presence of the non-contributing character cause the sub-tier to change?
In any of those circumstances, the non-contributor is hindering the party.

I'll use Mark's wand on him. If he'll follow me, I think I have time during that to walk back and retrieve my Bouncing Spell rod from over toward the pit.
