As far as I know, a Phylactery has to be a tiny box, with strips of parchment inside. So why not let it be just that? Tiny boxes aren't exactly noteworthy.
I'd weigh it down, and throw it into a well. Liches can reform under water just fine. She can just wait there for a bit, out of sight while regaining spells.

Why make a duplicate thread?
'cause That one was about a specific case, and (probably because of that) didn't get much attention.
You're right though, I should have put a link in.
And, why leave out the text we quoted you last time that answers your question?
Because it didn't answer that question (nor this one). The Alchemist's class description is in conflict with its own formulae list. We can argue about which rule takes precedence, but really: one of those rules just shouldn't be there.
How can Alchemists create an infused extract of True Strike, when they cannot make an extract that has a Focus requirement?

The focus for the clone spell is an alchemist lab.And that's precisely my problem. Clone Master alchemists can already clone themselves just fine. The beauty of a Clone extract would be to hand it out as an Infusion: clones for everyone! But if a Clone infusion is allowed, at which point would the focus be required?

Even though, in the Alchemist writeup in the APG, True Strike is listed as one of the Formulae that they can prepare as an extract?Is it? The class description in the PRD, under "Alchemy", states:
Creating extracts consumes raw materials, but the cost of these materials is insignificant—comparable to the valueless material components of most spells. If a spell normally has a costly material component, that component is expended during the consumption of that particular extract. Extracts cannot be made from spells that have focus requirements (alchemist extracts that duplicate divine spells never have a divine focus requirement).
So if you have a counter-quote, we'll have the grounds for a FAQ.
1). Correct. You do not need to sleep.

they could do it because they are, in actuality, the same person.
Yes. And no. Physically they are indeed the same person, capable of doing the same things. But mentally they are not. I truly believe that Superman isn't capable of being the demure, unnoteworthy person Clark Kent is. When he puts on the cape, he becomes this paragon of virtue and effectively must act it.The superhero will not remain passive or silent, while the social persona could stand by and watch, waiting for the right moment to change. They really do have different capabilities due to their different mindsets.
Batman as an example might not be the best idea for this discussion: he is the Batman; Bruce Wayne is merely a disguise. But Peter Parker and Clark Kent for instance are people in their own right. They can do things Spider-Man or Superman cannot, and almost seem to have their own agendas. They'd need access to those Talents in their social guise.
A Sarenraean priest in Taldor could make good use of the class, if he or she is of great social status. And let's not forget the "demure, oft neglected servile creature secretly so much more capable than everyone else" concept: capable woman in a male-dominated socienty or vice versa, the slave who's really the master of the household or the child that saves the day while the adults are bumbling about.
It has already been established that the casting of Stilled & Silenced spells can be observed, since bystanders get to roll a Spellcraft check. So what's the point of the Warlock's Concealed Casting talent? It's definitely not concealing anything, since it merely hides Verbal and Somatic components.
Also: the talent's description specifies it works on "the target". If that is the target of the spell, then a third party would still see and hear everything. "Observers" are only mentioned in relation to an already hidden Vigilante.
The easier way of doing that would be to make the mutagenic form's persona your vigilante persona.Yeah, but where's the fun in that? Instead you can have:
It's not just a one PC party... it's a one character adventure!

Correct. But you're not leveling up (or down) when taking ability damage, so that's probably not relevant.Unless the intent of that rule is that a PC always has at least 1HP per level.
Create a clear outline of how the PC thinks the world works. Not just a few loose rules about how the character is "different", but a complete, internally coherent world-view. And then just follow up on that logically and consistently.
It's surprising to see how logical crazy people can be: all you really need is a few skewed premises.

No, you're keeping them under control to reap personal benefits. It's Evil. A good kind of Evil maybe, but Evil still.
Heartrender's charges cannot be restored by normal means. One charge can be restored by committing a coup de grace on a living, helpless creature with HD equal to at least 1/2 the wielders by running Heartrender through the creatures heart.
This is easily abused by keeping a lvl 2 commoner on call, plus a bag of 1HD hamsters...
