I've both run and played this scenario (both with Disciple of the Void above), and I greatly enjoyed both, even though I was one of the PCs that took 165 damage and died.
I have a question regarding event tracking (sorry if it has already been asked and answered).

Some 3rd-level spells were changed because there are some new spells in the Inner Sea Monster Codex that some GMs may not have access to. But yeah, otherwise, Alimnekk's list is identical to that of a normal Prophet of Baphomet.
Thanks!I'm looking forward to running this. I particularly like the mix of combat and non combat encounters. It really seems like there are a lot of opportunities for role playing and problem solving. Well done!
Ooh! I know this one. Those replace the spells from the normal Prophet of Baphomet stat block from the Inner Sea Monster Codex. They are listed there in case you pull up the Inner Sea Monster Codex to use the statblock, you noted the changed 3rd level spells. The statblock in the appendix has the fix for you, so you don't need to worry about it if you're just reading it from the back.
Ah, gotcha. Yep, that's what I was comparing the spell list to. Thanks!
Especially for low level games, I always try to err on the side of fun. What would your players think is fun? If it's a better story and more fun for everyone to have the PCs wake up and sneak away to rally, go for it.With a higher level game and more experienced players, I may go a different route. But newish players (just assuming since you are running the Confirmation) may not come back to play if everyone dies in their first game.
For the longest time, our group left it completely up to the players to fill in everything except for the rewards. Though at the time, it seemed like it saved time, I have found that (from an organizer's perspective) it actually caused a lot of headaches. Players weren't correctly tracking gold and purchases, which led to a lot of little accounting errors.

Strange question, I apologize if it has been addressed somewhere else. When a Tome Eater Occultist eats a book, do they absorb the knowledge, effectively "reading" it? Thematically, I think it fits, and would house rule that for my personal game. But I'm looking at a Pathfinder Society character, and want to make sure that I play it correctly.
