Question about spirit anchors' confinement -
It states Nihil is confined to the Lord's Tower by her anchor. The anchored dragon can apparently fly out of the castle over the water. Why the difference?
What happens if an evil character gets anchored? Can they move about the castle or are they anchored to a room?
Great article, however I'm concerned more about players crafting their own intelligent items - there's no minimum crafting level like there use (was that left out of PF on purpose or not?) to be and costs seem really low. Are you going to be discussing these issues at all?
I realize this blog isn't new - has anyone put level limitations on crafting intelligent items?
So, would you double the cost?
What about an additional crafting feat for intelligent items?
It seems really strange to me that an intelligent weapon could be created at 5th level but its 11th level for a staff.
Does anyone else put further limitations on their creation?

So, the only limits are cash (which seem way too low, I agree) ego, and the crafting arms feat?
So adding powers doesn't increase the limit of the creator, 3x enhancement bonus?

One of my players is going to be playing a mystic godling, he has a couple of build ideas/questions - just thought I'd run them by you for balance purposes...
1. Could an exalted domain be substituted for a major ascension?
2. Swapping for base class archetypes...there is a discussion of it on pages 5-6 of the guide to archer archetypes. Depending on which way I go, several of the base class archetypes could be very cool. A godling of strength with the berserker archetype, a godling of war with the battle mystery, a godling of the hunt with the scout archetype, a rakshasa-descended godling with the rakshasa bloodline, etc.
The second question seems like a cool idea to personalize the godling - any suggestions for keeping things balanced beyond following the rules listed in the archer pdf? Are there any base archetypes that you would or wouldn't use with the mystic godling?
Another vote for The Enforcer and friends.
Ah, very nice - thanks for the info.
Cool. I'll pick this up after the name switch.
I've just recently been introduced to your PDF's, great stuff! (I quickly picked up all the Genius Guides to Feats).
I also put two and two together and realized you were one of the Star Wars Saga authors (awesome!).
Anyway, I'll be getting more of your PDF's, that's for sure...
