"Maybe a trip to Kaisersberg is in order. The bandits that wanted the box was from there, and that mystery still gnaws at me. Also, Vanya, your 'friends' at the inn were reporting to someone from there and I don't think it will be the last time we see them."
Grim oprichinik calls his familiar to his shoulder and the little piglet instantly changes its shape to that of an arctic owl and flies to him. "I agree. We should travel to Kaisersberg."
The raven flies down from Vanya's shoulder and as soon as it reaches the ground, transforms into small white piglet with baby-blue eyes. The piglet oinks rather forcefully at the goblin's wolf, while Vanya silently sighs and shakes his head. "As you can see, this is no bird, but a wolf. Although, with a strange sense of humor, I must admit."

A tall man dressed in black uniform and with white raven on his shoulder raises his eyebrow at the goblin.
"Pray, do tell how do you think we are able to differentiate between goblins? Nice wolf, by the way. Here's mine", he points at the bird on his shoulder.
I think I'm done, with the possible exception of the sword - but I am really to tired to write it up now. I'll be able to post more in 24 hours, not before.
So, if Vanya is good enough to go, I'll add what you deem necessary tomorrow, and if not - perhaps he will be able to rejoin the party at some later time.
Several questions: I see that you've included Magus and Wudan as new options for Battle Sorcerer.
1) What are your thoughts on Black Blade ability of the Magus Bladebound archetype?
2) Would you allow two arcane bounds, with an expenditure of a feat, let's call it Extra Bond?
3) I was thinking of playing an Eldritch Knight, but I really just want to have a familiar and black blade, if allowed. I am not that interested in spells, but what are your thoughts of witch hexes? I like the idea of patrons, thematically - I don't care about bonus spells - and hexes are pretty interesting to me. How about replacing Eldritch Blast with hexes?
Of course, these are just questions. I do not insist on any of that.

Wow! Really? Well, I would love to do so. I'm checking your new rules right now. Although, I would like to rework my character, if that's OK and make him more of a martial type, perhaps shuffling around ability stats a bit (such as putting 18 in Strength instead of Charisma).
So, if that's OK, I'm gonna rework him today.
Hey, guys. I am glad that this game is still going strong and am really sorry for bailing on you. It was really difficult for me to loose the internet connection for such a long time, especially since I work at home. But my gaming suffered as well, since I run my games and play almost exclusively online now.

"Charlie lives in a little cabin out a league or so away from town. Take the road east, then cut north when you see a big stand of crabapple trees beside the road. You'll pass a big oak by itself; follow the slope there down to the creek, and you'll find his cabin among a stand of pines. Make sure you yell out as you approach; he may not be expecting anyone."
"Frost! Where are... Oh, there you are! Flap your wings and go find that cabin... What do you mean, you are a wolf? Yes, I know. But you were a raven just a few hours ago... Oh, for Morana's sake..." The oprichnik throws his hands in the air and keeps on walking, ignoring his familiar.
Vanya looks at the thing with a bit more attention than he usually displays. "This is not good. That thing is a Teufelkopf, a magical totem object carved by savage humanoids. It is supposed to expand the control of a fiendish ruler over its tribal minions, curse their enemies, and serve as a focus for malign influences. Some legends even claim the creature depicted can perceive the world through the object. Constructing one of these things usually requires a tribal high priest of some power, such as might appear among goblins only once in a generation. I fear that we are observed even as we speak, but I am at a loss what to do with it."
I thought that I used my action casting the spell? If not so, I'll attack.
Oprichnik calmly raises his blade and descends on the mongrel. "You shall die, dog", he murmurs with cold voice. "I have had enough of scum for one day." 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 2 = 81d8 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 2 = 8
