When I was getting out of the Pokémon TCG, I sorted all my cards by rarity, made signs with the prices listed, and left them with my mom to sell at our garage sale while I went to some school event. Probably at least $50 worth, easy.
I come home, and my mom tells me she sold them all. For $5.

Exactly. When you mainstream classism and racism against rural and blue-collar whites, don't be surprised when they fight back. And after the violence against Trump supporters in places like San Jose, it's no surprise they didn't make themselves known to the pollsters.
HIllary couldn't keep enough of the black or hispanic votes to win. The swing states were decided by independants. I think the "angry old white people" rhetoric doesn't fit here.
Indeed, Trump out-performed Mitt Romney in terms of the black AND Hispanic vote. If the "angry white people" couldn't mobilize to keep Obama out of the White House, there's obviously something else in play here.
Protip: Don't listen to the "experts" who thought Trump had no chance of winning, to figure out how he won. They clearly don't understand the forces at work here.

But you generally have to commission such a ring, as you can't assume a ring with the right revelation will just be lying around on the market, waiting for you... so you need to know a high level oracle , of the right mystery, and with Forge Ring feat... can be a whole adventure to track down.
This is for PFS, so all magical items can be found to purchase if you have the gold (and the fame, but that's usually not relevant).

After Penn of "Penn & Teller" lost 100 pounds eating just potatoes, I have decided to start the diet tomorrow. I have bought two bags of potatoes, and they were very inexpensive. I boiled them tonight, and tomorrow I will eat them. I will report my findings on here, and I will finally prove whether or not it really works. You are welcome.
From what I read, he didn't just switch to all potatoes. He only did that for two weeks to reset his sense of taste, so that vegetables would taste better after.
True, but that +2 to Will saves could make Wizard more attractive.

But if you need a casting stat of 10+spell level to cast spell, wouldn't someone with 9 or less in their casting stat be unable to cast even a 0 level spell? I've played casters who just barely qualified to use magic before. And it takes more creative thinking to be effective at higher levels. But it is possible. But playing a caster who can't use magic at all seems... Well, sub-optimal would be an improvement.
But there's no stat requirement for activating wands. It's not a terrible idea if, say, an 8-Int 2HW fighter wants to take a 1-level dip into Wizard just to be able to use wands of shield or magic missile or whatever he might find on an adventure.
Another idea to consider is skipping the TWF route and taking a 2-level dip into Brawler instead. That would let you do a flurry of blows with monk weapons (which includes some good one-handed weapons), so you wouldn't be splitting your Weapon Focus and weapon enchantments between two weapons. Plus Martial Flexibility, free IUS, and a boost to Reflex saves.
I've a Paladin 2/Brawler 2/Swashbuckler (Noble Fencer) 1 in PFS right now, who's going for 2 levels of Medium next, followed by Fighter (Brawler).
He flurries with Unarmed Strikes while in full plate and heavy shield, and thanks to Snake Style, his Unarmed Strikes are piercing weapons for Swashbuckler goodies. Also thanks to Snake Style, he can use Sense Motive in place of touch AC as an immediate action, and the Noble Fencer Swashbuckler archetype lets him essentially use derring-do on those checks. Medium and Fighter levels are for cranking up the attack and damage bonuses. Saves are through the roof.
Instead of rolling and percentiles, why not just give the option of, say, a level 2 character with a rare magical item, a level 3 character with an uncommon magical item, or a level 4 character with only a common magical item? Eliminate the randomness, and let people pick what they prefer from a short list (similar to the Priority system of character gen in Shadowrun).
Elven Curved Blade only works for a Unchained rogue. For anyone other Dexterity build its specific one-handed weapons.
But with 14 Strength, you don't even need Dex-to-damage. My wife plays a fighter with an ECB like that, and still does amazing amounts of damage, even when not getting crits.
For a magus, sure, you need a one-handed weapon for spell combat. But for a bard, a two-handed weapon works fine. And a tengu or half-elf can get proficiency without spending any feats.
He's got enough wilderness survival skills that I think Ranger would be more appropriate. Something like an Inquisitor of Erastil might also be appropriate, given the mission of the colony. Inquisitor would also fit a little better with the social skills, although there isn't really another use for Charisma.

Dude, even the ACLU came out against this stuff. It takes next-to-nothing to put someone on a terror watchlist, or start an investigation on spurious grounds, and it's almost impossible to get yourself off of one of those lists. Do you really want every FBI agent with a grudge to be able to deprive anyone they want of a constitutional right with no kind of oversight?
You're using a criminally loose definition of "loophole" here. The rest of us refer to it as "due process".

Secondly, if encouraging such an environment is an instant bannable offence, it should be mentioned in the damned community guidelines to prevent further incidents such as this.
Eh, the Community Guidelines don't mean much if they're selectively enforced.
The last post I had moderated away (without any kind of notification in the thread or otherwise) was calling out someone who compared certain styles of RPG campaigns to genocide. That comparison wasn't deleted, despite being a clear violation of the Community Guidelines, but my response to it was.
By default, you can't take feats more than once. It has to specify that it's allowed.
I think it's just a matter of prioritizing. My Occultist is casting-focused, so he only has enough transmutation focus for +2 to a stat, even though he could afford more. A bonus to Perception from the divination implement is nice, but I can make that up in other areas (including the extra senses, with the Darkvision spell). Instead, he almost maxes out the evocation implement. But for a martial-focused occultist, you'd prioritize the stat boost over blasting, no matter how juicy it is.
Why are you trying to Extend a round/level spell? Most combats last 3 rounds or less, so it's kind of pointless.
I think a feat or class-feature cost would be more appropriate than gold. For reference:
-Alchemists can fly for minutes/level for the cost of one discovery, starting at level 6
Based on these, I think one feat for a either a limited duration of flight (minutes/level) or a constant but relatively weaker form of flight (poor maneuverability, 20 foot speed) would be appropriate, considering she has the advantage of natural, non-magical flight. A second feat to increase it to constant, good maneuverability at a higher speed could cost a second feat.
i thought slashing grace no longer allows flurries though? If it does, that sounds super nasty
Gah, you're right. I'd forgotten about that.
In that case, maybe use stats of 13/17+1/14/10/12/13, and take Power Attack instead of Slashing Grace. Then you can save up for an agile weapon (depending on item availability in your campaign).
