1.) Everyone, please rise for the National Anthem.
2.) So, how are we going to know when the warp drive is gonna kick in?
3.) Hah! 7 vertebrae shattered with one karate chop! Can you top that?
Fresh, piping answers! Straight outta the oven!
1.) I'm sorry, but I'm all tapped out.
2.) That is indeed quite impressive.
3.) What if I answered your question with another question?
That's actually the purview of Brawlers and a few specific Fighter archetypes.
Brawlers are truly Schrodinger's fighter.
So the bodyguard stuff isn't useful. You still can get several neat necromancy spells with the archetype that the Ranger wouldn't have access to otherwise.
I think Brawler is a better choice for this character because there are some enemies which simply cannot be tripped. Martial flexibility means that when you fight those enemies, you can have feats that will help you better face those foes instead of feats which are useless in that particular encounter.
True Royal Armor is created when spirits of especially loyal knights at the end of a lifetime of service are bound to a set of armor (usually Full Plate). The ritual also involves a sacrifice of blood by a currently reigning monarch. After its creation, the armor can then only be worn by members of that royal bloodline. When the royal wearing the armor is in danger, the spirits bound to the armor can make it move on its own, ensuring that the bloodline they are protecting never dies.

He gets a rotary connection, i.e. he has to dial up using one of those old-school telephones, hold Minnie Ripperton up to his ear and say 'Ahoy ahoy, Internet' before he can get logged on
That's not even getting into the part where Bleached Otyugh is eating the wi-fi signal.
Don't ask me to explain how he does it. He just does.
I've had the soundtrack to Hamilton running through my head lately. Let's do this!
"Raise a glass to freedom." - A common toast among worshippers of Cayden Cailen.
"Never be satisfied." - Aphorism among Calistrians. Refers to both the lust and revenge aspects of her portfolio.
"You are running out of time." - Saying attributed to Groetus. Occasionally used as a death threat by his worshippers.
I think the idea isn't that you're dumping Dexterity. Pretty much only certain Oracle builds can do that.
But you do make it secondary to your Strength score.

I mean, um, sure.
Anyway, getting back on topic, I guess talk about characters being unrealistic. My personal view is that once you hit level 5, every character should be able to accomplish feats that make regular folks think witchcraft was involved. I'm kind of a fan of the Charles Atlas Superpower trope as far as fantasy heroes go.

What if we considered an Unarmed Strike to be a single weapon that a person could possess? That is, making a punch with your left and right arms would be considered attacking with the same weapon twice? That way, a person could never TWF with just unarmed strikes since you need two different weapons to get extra attacks from two-weapon fighting.
The exceptions would be Monks and Brawlers, but that just makes sense anyway considering they're the unarmed fighting classes.
There's actually a Slayer archetype, the Stygian Slayer, that gets invisibility as a spell-like ability and can use a bunch of sneaky-type spells with items without bothering with Use Magic Device checks.
The only problem I have with the above post is the example, because in-world, per the way that Class works, nobody decides to be an Oracle. That's something decided for them.
You say that, but I could easily see a character that might not work that way. For example, let' say that we have a devout worshipper of Iomedae who one day sees his town invaded by orcs. He makes a vow to his goddess that he will never tell a lie if she will grant him the power to save his home.
Mechanically, he would be an Oracle with the Battle Mystery and the Legalistic Curse. In-universe, though? He totally asked for those powers, and his goddess answered!
