An option for powerful races is to require the character's first X levels to be in NPC classes. That way, their hit dice, saves and skills scale appropriately with everyone else, but their racial abilities are accounted for. Think of it as 'multiclassing' race with class, where the racial abilities fill in for the lack of class abilities in the NPC levels.
I would say that Planeswalker is a creature template (or mythic template), not a class. Some of them are very spellcasty and would never consider using a weapon (Jace) while others are very focused on martial prowess (Gideon).
The planeswalkers themselves are not necessarily the most powerful fighters or wizards or whatever. There are a great many non-planeswalking champions of various forms in all of the worlds and many of them might be vastly more powerful than the plane-hopping characters. They're just stuck in one world, that's all.
To expand on my earlier statement: Yes, I do believe attitudes on both sides have contributed to the oft-stated toxic atmosphere. It is such that I usually feel intimidated enough to retreat whenever I catch sight of any such argument. This is a bad thing.
That I feel too frightened of the roiling nexus of hate to involve myself in a positive movement is a very bad thing.

I used to despise his Pathfinder design philosophy. Having seen some of his non-Paizo stuff, I'm tending toward believing the above was the case.
I know I've had some of my own work twisted into unrecognisability by editors and been obliged to say 'it's good'.

Is line of effect required? Can you state a distance and direction to go through walls?

I am leaving Divinity Forge 2.
Sorry. This isn't working for me. I can't have Alosvalophos run my turns every turn either, so it's best if the Orizaba become a static NPC force or something.
I barely have the will to live. My depression is heavier now than it has been in a long time.
Good luck with the rest of the game, everyone. Have fun.
