I still think it's a suboptimal process, e.g., Doug Hahn mentioned NDAs (which I've heard of before) and always assumed they existed to allow VOs to have sneak peek access to materials for exactly this reason. I guess not.
Last I knew (which is admittedly several years out of date), Venture Captains DID get advanced copies of books, for exactly this reason. Paizo may have stopped doing this at some point, of course.
werd, just kind of bothers me that Krunes artifacts just go away, and the amount of gold you get for that scenario is WAY less than all the magic items you collect for the society.
Think of it this way: The Society is not going to let a few random (if competent) employees keep the vastly powerful historical artifact they just killed a Runelord for. Instead, it goes in the basement for study along with all the other vastly powerful historical artifacts that the

So when do we get to use them in Pathfinder Society? ;)

I'm very interested to see what Swordmaster offers. I've always wanted to build a PC in the vein of a Mifune Toshiro character (from pretty much any Kurasawa film, but Sanjuro from Yojimbo is most iconic), but couldn't ever get it to work in 1st Edition.
It's neat. Very much a tank archetype, and can negate crits for your party members (at a cost). I haven't figured out a build I like for it yet, but it has a lot of potential!

Honestly, if that thing is indicative of the wildlife on this island I'm in favor of burning the entire thing to the bedrock and sailing home. ;)

It's okay, Darkive players enjoy it anyway.
1 level dip into Mouser Swashbuckler, probably. Lets you enter the enemy's square if they miss you, and you always flank the target if there's any adjacent allies. They also provoke if they attempt to move out of your square.

Those would be the chronicle sheets. There's sections your GM should have filled out for gold and prestige earned, but the starting and ending gold and prestige sections are usually left blank. It's your responsibility to fill those parts in.
You do in fact get attribute boosts in Pathfinder, and can raise one attribute by 1 every 4th level.
Just so you know, make sure that the games you play your character in are Core games. Playing a single non-Core Campaign game on a character will render him non-Core in the system.
Just did the math. With those wall dimensions (assuming total sidewall dimensions of .6, not each) and the 1x1x2" shape, we get interior dimensions of .4x.4x1.6". That gives us an interior volume of 0.256 cubic inches, or roughly 0.14 fluid ounces.
What this really tells us, of course, is that I clearly like math too much.
It's actually rather interesting, because that info gives us the SHAPE of the vial as well: It can't be round, unless it also happens to be a TARDIS. So we can safely assume that it has a square profile. Luckily, this also makes doing the math a hell of a lot easier.
A fluid ounce is equal to ~1.8 cubic inches. If we model the vial as a pair of cubes, we can split that in half and take the cubic root to get the interior dimensions of the vial. That gives interior dimensions of ~.965 inches on each side. Subtract that from 1 inch and dividing by 2 gives us the thickness of the glass (.035/2 = .0175).
So the glass is a bit less than half a millimeter thick.
TL;DR: Don't drop your potion vials.
Well if this debacle has taught us anything: Don't go to the boards to resolve an official dispute.
I think that's a pretty awful lesson to draw from this. If anything, it's wait for the whole story, post everything in its appropriate context, and give campaign leadership a bit more credit. Heck, even "do your research before jumping in" would be a good lesson to draw, if glancing at Warhorn signups could have prevented this whole thread.
The boards are great for getting second opinions and asking questions about PFS policies, and Tonya, Paizo staff, and the VO community are one of the most responsive and open game companies I've had the pleasure of dealing with. There's the occasional hiccup to be sure, but never anything that's lead me to question their professionalism.
You could in theory also use this as a Sacred Huntsmaster, other Inquisitor who has an Animal Companion, or Cavalier via Tactician. Still, a rewording of the prereq would be lovely, given that it also allows Eidolons and familiars, which I can't think of a way to give the feat off the top of my head.

Save or Die:
To be fair, it's not really dying (only 2PP to get it removed, and the scenario provides a way to get rid of it after just that one encounter), and there's a REALLY easy way to avoid it.
Assuming you mean ability to get a character to decent level AT GENCON? No. In theory, you could play every slot and get a character to just shy of 5th level, but that's an awful lot of time spent playing Pathfinder that you could spend doing other stuff. Not that Pathfinder Society isn't a blast, but there's a lot of things happening at GenCon, and it'd be a shame to spend the entire time in the Sagamore. ;)
Nope, it's a gaze attack.

Unlikely. The ones from Emerald Spire are bugs, while the ones here are certainly humanoid. The boss in Labyrinth of Hungry Ghosts is a Maker, as is his wife, so we're pretty safe in assuming they're based on the normal humanoid template. Probably not Leng related either, since Sevenfingers made those deals while he was alive, which is millenia too late for the Makers to have anything to do with it.
