Aside from the ki pool the unchained rogue is just simply better than the ninja.
Does the Mammoth Hide Armor (Melee Tactics Toolbox p. 23) damage bonus apply to mounted charges? While Rhino Hide Armor (Ultimate Equipment p. 129)
Mammoth Hide Armor:
This +2 hide armor is made from woolly mammoth hide.
It seems to move with and bolster the wearer, and has only
a –1 armor check penalty. Once per round, when the wearer
makes a successful charge attack, the mammoth hide deals an
additional 3d6 points of damage to the target. This damage isn’t
multiplied on a critical hit or by effects that multiply the damage
of a charge, such as Spirited Charge. Mammoth hide also
protects the wearer from cold environments as the endure
Rhino Hide Armor:
This +2 hide armor is made from rhinoceros hide. In addition
to granting a +2 enhancement bonus to AC, it has a –1 armor
check penalty and deals an additional 2d6 points of damage
on any successful charge attack made by the wearer, including
a mounted charge.
Knights of the Inner Sea (p. 31) has a magic item called the War Saddle (description below). Is a large constrictor snake "appropriate shape to wear a saddle"? I believe that the First Mother's Fang cavalier archetype (Blood of the Beast pp. 17-18) can ride snakes which makes me think snakes could be mounted.
Any creature of the animal or magical beast type of an appropriate shape to wear a saddle (creatures with unusual anatomies may be affected with GM discretion) can wear the war saddle, which magically changes size and shape as necessary. The saddle allows the creature wearing it to act as if it were combat trained (see the Handle Animal description on page 97 of the Core Rulebook for more information on combat training), and gives the rider a +5 competence bonus on Ride checks made while mounted upon the creature.
Is the increase in natural armor an ability increase? The question was asked here but not answered.
For the Agathiel Vigilante (Spymaster's Handbook p. 25)
Beginning at 4th level, when an agathiel assumes his vigilante identity, he physically transforms into an animal,
though he always retains unusual traits that set him apart from ordinary animals, as if using beast shape I, except the vigilante gains no ability adjustments and can select only a single animal ability from those listed in the spell’s description. His social identity remains his true form, and unlike with beast shape I, an agathiel can remain in his animal form indefinitely. The agathiel’s vigilante identity is considered a polymorph effect
Beast Shape I:
(CRB p. 247)
When you cast this spell, you can assume the form of any Small or
Medium creature of the animal type. If the form you assume has
any of the following abilities, you gain the listed ability: climb 30 feet, fly 30 feet (average maneuverability), swim 30 feet, darkvision 60 feet, low-light vision, and scent.
Small animal: If the form you take is that of a Small animal, you
gain a +2 size bonus to your Dexterity and a +1 natural armor bonus.
Medium animal: If the form you take is that of a Medium animal, you
gain a +2 size bonus to your Strength and a +2 natural armor bonus.

You can add "spell storing" and "holy" weapon qualities to the book. You'll have a holy spell storing book. How cool is that? Adding "dancing" would rock.
I have a sorcerer/mesmerist who would like to take a dip in to something granting access to the Luck domain. This character has a 7 wisdom. The number of uses per day (Bit of Luck) would have to be keyed off of a stat other than wisdom. I thought that the occultist “reliquarian” archetype would base the number of uses off of INT but am having doubts as to whether that would work as it appears that this would still be wisdom-based. Any thoughts are appreciated.
Thank you. I was 90% certain that this was a bad idea. Now I know.
If a barbarian with the barbarian rage power of
Angelic Attacks:took a level of bloodrager that had the
Angelic Attacks (Su): At 1st level, your melee attacks are
considered good-aligned weapons for the purpose of
bypassing damage reduction. Furthermore, when you deal
damage with a melee attack to an evil outsider, you deal an
additional 1d6 points of damage. This additional damage
stacks with effects such as align weapon and those granted
by a weapon with the holy weapon special ability.
Celestial:bloodline would the bonus damage for evil outsiders stack to be 2d6? The fact that Angelic Attacks can (sometimes) stack (as per the ACG P. 19) has me asking this question.
ACG (p. 80)
Celestial Blood, Lesser (Su): While raging, the barbarian’s
melee attacks are considered good-aligned weapons
for the purpose of bypassing damage reduction.
Furthermore, the barbarian deals an additional 1d6

a melee attack.

Snake Style is great if you are willing to put skill points in to sense motive.
You gain a +2 bonus on Sense Motive checks, and you
can deal piercing damage with your unarmed strikes. While using
the Snake Style feat, when an opponent targets you with a melee
or ranged attack, you can spend an immediate action to make a
Sense Motive check. You can use the result as your AC or touch
AC against that attack. You must be aware of the attack and not

And to be honest Trump's not going to make it that far. The Right made a Faustian deal with him and they will get rid of him as soon as he outlives his usefulness. He insulted the intelligence community and as David Brooks pointed out "And, believe me, woe to you who insults the intelligence community, if you’re president. You do not want to get on their bad side, because, A, they leak a lot. B, you actually need them to learn about the world". Trump has undoubtedly done something in the past the either the FBI, CIA, or NSA knows about. At a convenient time something will come up and he will be gone. And as to my previous comment I counter with "if you don't vote, you don't exist" as far as the politicians are concerned. Unless you pose a credible threat to the establishment (e.g. voting) they have no reason to listen to you. The price for a senator to hang on to a six-year term is in the millions of dollars. If you're neither voting nor giving them money then why, oh why, should they care about you?
I love the ongoing conflict with "Being X".
Just remember: "Tanya the Evil" is great anime, "Tonya the Evil" is the Pathfinder Society Organized Play Coordinator.
