It sounds like some things that were feats became weapon traits, I hope there are ways to focus on a weapon and perhaps be able to get traits out of it that it does not usually have. I also hope they do not go the route of Starfinder and make it so only 'rogue' weapons will be able to be used for sneak attack, or if that is true they at least let you open it up with a feat.
Interesting to see the early and tentative thoughts on PFS transferring from First Edition into Second Edition. I will weigh in that I am fine with starting over completely I think the best solution is to just start fresh. I am honestly not a fan of people who have stars getting a discount of any sort on their way to whatever Second Edition will use. With the sole exception of being able to trade some of the older race boons in for that same race in the new edition I am not interested in trading out boons. However if it is not possible to trade in old race boons for ones in the new edition, I will not be upset.
Honestly rather glad to not be converting over my characters from 1st to 2nd edition. Looking forwards to a fresh start in a fresh campaign actually. I just really hope that the first edition of the Bestiary starts to open up some of the more popular races, or I suppose ancestries now. I know people have mentioned Tengu, but it would be nice to see a more balanced Aasimar and Tiefling allowed back into society.
Liked the post, but that guy is the worst sales person ever. He insults the person repeatedly, and make insinuations about his ancestors. Also it is strange to see something called a bloodline and a complete denial of the usual meaning. I mean what happens between two consenting adults is their business, even if one of them is a multi-ton fire breathing lizard that can fly and cast as a sorcerer.

Not actually sure they ever break down "These are the ones that go Evil most." Other than saying that Order of the Torrent is particularly Good Aligned, but as players we can make some educated guesses. Admittedly the stopping crimes before you consider them is a bit Orwellian, but all the Orders summon Devils. Signifiers of the Order of the Gate might be less likely to go bad, simply due to their being fewer Devils summoned per Signifier.
Okay so no one has mentioned this, but thinking about it later after playing. We have the Aspis Consortium with what I am betting is evil Wonder Woman.
This is fun, but you need to make sure you read over the new rules and make sure you do it right. Also if you get a low skill group things could be a bit rough.
I really enjoyed the novel. Admittedly the speech does not come across as the prose from one of the original Gothic Horror stories. I would honestly say this is a good thing in a lot of ways though. It can be difficult to get into that mind set to read them, with some of the older stories.
Also in a lot of ways the most terrifying part and in some ways the saddest part of the story was the idea of memory erasure. That and in some ways the finding a link to ones family and then just abandoning it.
I also loved how you did make it so that the vampires all had the same basic flaw of all considering themselves 'tragic' while having them show off their evil and monstrous aspects.
The relationship between the Diabolist and the Paladin was interesting at least, and went into some of the things that are code breaking and not in a relationship. I really kept wanting him to hit the person he was talking to for advice with some holy water. I just kept thinking "There are shape shifting devils, and this is Cheliax."
