The main game-mechanical reason why spellcasting foci (or component pouches, their alternative) exist is that they offer a way to disarm a spellcaster by taking them away. Disarming the PCs can be used by the DM as a tool to get the party into a situation they can't solve through combat. This opens up opportunities to apply non-combat skills and roleplaying. ...

The rule to "never" multiclass a caster-type only applies if your goal is to either be an uber-caster of some type, or to be the most powerful character in the game. It is also a rule that comes from the CharOpt and TO communities. (Character Optimization and Theoretical Optimization) While some people have no use for being the "best" or "biggest" or "...

This is another of those situations where RAW and common sense can be at odds. The RAW does not appear to specifically call out a change in size category. Common sense suggests that if you are large enough to affect a certain area of space, then your size category should represent that.

First, let's dismiss concerns about your girth: recall that the 10' x 10' square that your creature "occupies" in the horizontal plane is a matter of space you influence, not that you occupy. (PHB p.191, "Space") So you don't have to be a 10' cube to have a 2"-square mini. The tallest playable race are Goliaths (EEPC, p.10), ...

Yes, this means those spells no longer have a casting of time of one Action, as it's been changed to Bonus Action. You don't have a choice of which to use, since they can no longer be cast using your Action.

Option 3 appears to be the strict RAW ruling as I cannot find anything that would indicate otherwise and despite replacing bloodline powers Martial Flexibility is not a bloodline power. I would probably opt to go with option 1 since it does replace the bloodline power it seems fair to give you the replacement.

In the case of a spell like Web, I would rule they can use Careful spell to treat a 5ft square as an entity when casting any area of effect spell. They shape the spell to web the area around their companion, which satisfies the clause of protecting them from the spell's "full force." It also simplifies the conceptual way this works in universe, the caster ...
