comment Using words of power as a mythic character
As a DM running another recent AP (Reign of Winter) I vetoed a player wanting to use Words of Power partially because I didn't fully grok the system but also because allowing it would require that I greatly modify the AP to offer appropriate treasures and opportunities to the Words of Power user (and generally speaking as a GM anything the players have should be available to NPCs...). If you DM doesn't mind that level of customization go for it - but consider perhaps the variant that blends regular Pathfinder casters with some Words of Power?

comment What makes grease a good spell?
Disarm is an underused tactic but can really help against a wide range of enemies and a party can't have too many ways to help key members get out of grapples - for many low-bab characters being grappled can be extremely deadly (say when there is water nearby for example)

comment What is the purpose of slow experience gain in Pathfinder Society Organized Play?
It is also the case that depending on where you are there may not be a lot of other players in PFS with characters at a given higher level - so you might choose slow advancement to stay at the level of play available near you for longer.

comment What is the full list of monsters that can be summoned with the Summon Monster spells?
hmm - good to know. Confusing however as the dog, riding is notably better than most of the other level 1 (and even many of the level 2) monster options

actually I was using the d20PFSRD website but that's the one that is apparently slightly off - I was told that per discussion board comments the dog, Riding in the Level 1 list is an error - it should just be a basic dog (which is a lot less useful). I hadn't seen the iPhone app, I'll look at that! Thanks!
