I agree with this. The evolution has the same wording as the feat Improved Natural Attack, which applies to all instances of 'claws' on a creature.
Hey guys, last two weeks I've been dealing with my wife/son, fourth of july stuff, and most of all finalizing my divorce. This Wednesday I signed the final papers for our stipulations. Only thing left to do is get my stuff she stole from me back. With the new work schedule, weekends with my son, and trying to find time to do errands, I've been left pretty exhausted.
If Eric wants to pick up again for a bit, I'm fine with that. About the only time I seem to be able to get on the boards is when I'm at work, and that's a tough time to update maps. If there's anything I can do to help him out via e-mail so his other games don't suffer I'd be glad to do assist.
If not, stuff should settle down once I find a rhythym and the fall out from the divorce is done.
Copyright infringement is highly discouraged on the forums. All paizo rules are covered by the OGL and so there is no issue sharing those. Handouts are meant to be shared so that's usually not a problem. Art however is a big no-no. The General-Post Monster can cause bad things to happen when copyrighted pictures and maps show up in threads. I try to play it safe and make my own maps based off of the maps provided in adventures. Usually using a combination of yeoldmapmaker.com and Inkscape.
I'm not really sure were edited art falls into the system though...
No idea, it was my ex-wifes camera. I'm trying to use my moms now and it looks so bad.
There's always the Master Summoner archtype!
Ready action also states, "Then, anytime before your next action, you may take the readied action in response to that condition." That means you'd have to trigger your ready action before you make your move action to Abundant Step. I'm not sure why people have such a problem with just taking your actions before you teleport. Sure, it limits the ability, but its not totally crippling. There are still lots of uses for it. You just can't pull a Dragonball Z-style teleport across the room and punch your foe style maneuver.
Perhaps there should be a feat, Improved Abundant Step; Your turn does not end after using Abundant Step.
Permanent reduce person is a little under 3,000 gp. I just tossed this out there because of all the other cheese I smell in here.
Permanently small human fused with a small serpentine eidolon
Fused Str 16 (base 10 + 4 str bonus + 2 evolutions)
Feats; Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, Rapid Shot, Many Shot, Deadly Aim, Multi-Weapon Fighting
Evolutions; Dex +4, Str +2, Limbs (4 pair of arms)
Equipment; 4x +2 small composite longbow (+7), belt of dex +4, bracers of archery
+24 Attack roll (+8 bab, +11 dex, +1 feat, +2 weapon, +1 size, +1 bracers, (+1 within 30'ft))
Full Round attack +17 (2 arrows), +17, +13, +13, +13, +12 (1d6+13, x2)
For a slightly more accurate build, with more gold and spare evo points to play with; lose 4 arms, 2 bows, and switch out multi for two-weapon fighting.
FYI, if you're only natural attack is a secondary attack it is treated as a primary attack. Doesn't matter if you're using a sword though...
Also you can make a bow wielding dex-baseidolon pretty efficiently.
I don't see how you are adding dex damage to the natural attacks. That's not a feature of any of those feats or abilities...
So long as you don't fly more than half your move speed after the grapple the action should be legal. Not that they would want to, but the grapplee would nto get a +4 bonus to escape the grapple, because the flyer is not placing them in hazardous terrain.
Regarding flying while grappling, just count the carried creature's weight towards the flying creature's encumberance. The standard penalties will affect its flight and movement.
I wonder if it will be a compilation of all the "___" of Golarion books. I'm curious if its even necesary. The current companions have done a pretty good job going over different races. Then there's the Inner Sea World Guide which covers even more.
I guess it might be useful for it all to be in one place.

You can ready up to a standard action, so doing it while staggered is fine. With a partial charge though, the reason you can only do it if you can only make standard actions is so you can't move your normal speed and follow it up with a partial charge. Normally you could move 30ft, ready an action to attack. If you could ready a partial charge, you could move 30ft past your allies and around the corner, then ready a partial charge against the first enemy who blinks. This would bypas the standard charge rules which require a straight line with no interruptions. That's why you normally can't do it, but I think it would be ok, in my game, if you didn't make any move action before readying the partial.
I would say yes. Only spell combat has the rule about having a free second hand. I believe this is the best reason to have a Bastard Sword as an exotic weapon for a Magus. It would also work well if he were to enlarge himself for some nice attack damage.
Enlarge person requires a 1 round casting time. So the turn he begins casting he would have to make a 1-handed attack, and he would finish it when his next turn begins. Switching over to two-handed at the point would be a normal action.
Somatic components require at least one free hand. Unless I'm missing something in my brief look over of the rules, that would seem to be a legitimate move. Technically you could do that with any weapon, not just a bastard sword.
The only thing that might be a little fuzzy is if you can take a free action to grab the weapon before you deliver the spell. Technically, delivering the spell is part of the action of casting the spell so some might not allow it to be interrupted by the action of grabbing the weapon. There is very little in the rules regarding that kind of order of operations.
Sat down and based all the metallics on one of the warjacks tonight. I'll get photos of the parts, primer, and metals off the camera tomorrow. I don't think I'll be painting them red like the standard color. It is just such a huge pain in the butt, plus I've got this greenish/bluish/black color I've barely touched and would love to put it to use. I think painting ones military units bright red is kind of silly anyways...
I also found and repaired my fully painted starter box for the Warmachine dwarven faction. Pictures of them will be put up tomorrow before I go put the little fellows up for commission at the game store.

The wolfs trip attack was built to simulate the exact way any canine would attack another creature in earnest. This is nearly perfect to simulate the experience of it, I loved the archetype, that's what I voted for it. I have a player in my game who also loved the flask of 5ths, his oracle is in the middle of building one now actually.
Yes! Some love for the flask! Probably my favorite entry.
A riding dog's CR is too high to be a standard animal companion. A normal dog is too weak. The wolfs stats are right in between and also have the useful trip ability, if you've ever seen a trained police dog in action they often tear their targets to the ground. A war hound is a special breed of dog, more powerful than your usual animal, but not as powerful as the huge mastiffs used as mounts. It merely has the same stats as a wolf.
All game design must be made with consideration to both fluff and crunch. Having accurate crunch is a very big part of the Superstar as well.
Overall, its a fun class to play and if you follow the rules with it wont really break your game.
This most of all. You must follow the rules with the class. If the GM is not comfortable with those rules, or the player is inexperienced it can easily lead to abuse whether intentional or not.
Eidolons are pretty big glass cannons. They tend to have relatively low HP because they always take the average hit points for each HD. Sure they tend to have a high AC, but a couple touch spells, or a grapple-tastic creature, even a lucky hit, and the summoner is left without their main class ability, relying on their less effective SLA's. I've noticed a lot of people forget that they have to spend a standard action to dismiss their eidolon before you can use the SLA this one is pretty important to tone down the hot-swapping of a wounded eidolon for a full health celestial thingy-majig.
