If you just want to cast as a kitsune, you can be a psychic caster. Fox shape wouldn't prevent Thought or Emotion components.
As much as I was looking forward to a Silksworn (and adding Panoply Savant & Trappings of the Warrior to my Reliquarian...) I think the real key is the versatility and total spells per day compared to a Sorcerer over 1-4
A sorcerer knows 2-4 lvl 1 spells over that period and can cast 3-6 per day (+ Stat bonus). On top of this they have 1 or 2 bloodline powers.
A Silksworn has 4-5 lvl 1 spells and can cast 1-3 a day (+ Stat bonus).
At 4th second levels come on line, and the tradeoff begins again (1 spell with 3 uses versus 5 spells with 1 use), though past that the quicker access to high level spells favors the sorcerer.
Over the lower levels (which seems to be most Society play) it just favors the Occultist.
Ah well on the bright-side i don't need to buy Inner Sea Races now, and I think I'll start waiting till the Society update hits before I buy new books.
Hopefully any feedback isn't too late. this is from my first quick read through
Milo of Clyde- his vestigial companion replaces "Pistol proficiency". I assume that should be Lead Slinger.
Al'Kra- Infectious Despair:The callback to the Shatter Defenses Feat seems unnecessarily confusing (at least it was to me). Perhaps just have it make the target flatfooted (either universally, or just to the binder)
The Nieva Nieces- as written you only have a 25% chance of binding the one you "choose", so the better strategy would be to name the one you don't want and just plan on a 22 DC. Perhaps if you make it "Odds/Evens" (50%) or even better yet any number BUT the one you call (75%) you end up with more control (and actually picking the one you want) but a chance of the wrong party slipping in.
Jehotek- Capstone: does the healing occur only if the target is within the Fire from the Heavens area (My guess as to the intent) or can you just wave your hand once a day and heal the appropriate targets as a separate ability (RAW)
Kandisha- Curse of Kandisha. Should their be a limit to how many curses a target is under, or can you layer all of them on a single target with enough time?
Lord Saruga- Saruga's Curse. Is it only a polymorph effect if its temporary? As the first part ("Like a reincarnate spell") is not normally a polymorph i would read it that way, however as part of the second you also include the dispel information which would then imply only the temporary version is dispelable.
Rasputin -Whip Mastery: Should it also grant proficiency with whips (and maybe scorpion whips)?
The Beast that Births- Capstone: As I read it, you can summon one creature from the Summon Natures Ally IX List for four turns, or if you want multiples it functions *as* SNA V- so either 1d3 from SNA IV or 1d4+1 from SNA I-III, and I'm unclear if they last Binder Level turns or 4. And I'm not sure if that is the intent.
The Worglord- Defy Destiny: not italicized
