Since an Exocortex is a computer, couldn't it be setup with a control module to control your weapon?

The Wizard should have gotten his Emergency Force Shield because immediate actions occur before the action that you responded to.

Wizard casts Fireball.
Dweomercats use Dweomer Leap in response to Fireball.
Wizard uses Emergency Force Shield in response to Dweomer Leap.

Order of resolution:
Emergency Force Shield then Dweomer Leap then Fireball.

Put another way: Last in, first out.

Is this quoted in a rule or FAQ somewhere?

My group ran into a problem in our last session regarding timing of immediate actions. Our wizard cast a fireball into the middle of a group of Dweomercats which allowed them to activated their Dweomer Leap ability as an immediate action.

Dweomer Leap:
When a dweomercat is targeted by a spell or within the area of effect of a spell, it can, as an immediate action, choose to teleport to a square adjacent to the spell’s caster, effectively appearing mid-leap and aimed toward the caster. This ability takes effect regardless of whether or not the spell overcomes the dweomercat’s spell resistance. If it chooses, the dweomercat can immediately make a full attack against the spell’s caster as though pouncing. Using this ability does not provoke an attack of opportunity. If there is no safe space adjacent to the caster—or if the dweomercat chooses—the dweomercat can forgo using this ability.

As an immediate action, our wizard cast Emergency Force Shield.

Emergency Force Shield:
School evocation [force]; Level sorcerer/wizard 4

Casting Time 1 immediate action
Components V

Range 5 ft.
Effect 5-ft.-radius hemisphere of force centered on you
Duration 1 round/level (D)
Saving Throw None; Spell Resistance no

As wall of force, except you create a hemispherical dome of force with hardness 20 and a number of hit points equal to 10 per caster level. The bottom edge of the dome forms a relatively watertight space if you are standing on a reasonably flat surface. The dome shape means that falling debris (such as rocks from a collapsing ceiling) tend to tumble to the side and pile up around the base of the dome. If you make a DC 20 Craft (stonemasonry), Knowledge (engineering), or Profession (architect or engineer) check, the debris is stable enough that it retains its dome-like configuration when the spell ends, otherwise it collapses.

Normally this spell is used to buy time for dealing with avalanches, floods, and rock-slides, though it is also handy in dealing with ambushes.

The GM ruled that the immediate actions went in order, first to last, which resulted in the Dweomercats getting full round of attacks before the wizard got the chance to cast Emergency Force Shield. Can someone point us to an official ruling on timings of multiple immediate actions in the same round?

Which ones are you after?

The ones in the backs of the adventures are designed for whichever edition the adventure was originally written for, so the older ones are for 3.5.
Since that time, there's been one and a half adventure paths and several stand-alone adventures, for the PF ruleset.

I don't think they've covered every class at every level.

I'm looking for the basic 1st level characters from Rise of the Rune Lords. The ones included were built incorrectly or with an old alpha version of Pathfinder.

Would you please be able to point me to where I might find the Pathfinder iconic character sheets. I have the ones from my module but they're created using old 3.x rules. Do you have the official ones built using the production Pathfinder rules?

Thank you,
