comment Improving Cleric Survivability
@Barillas - An Oracle with the healing mystery (Life?) would love those stats and have the channeling you want.

comment Where to get mapmaking software for Mac?
That looks awesome. I'm going to have to check it out when I get home. However, it's worth noting that this is professional cartography software with a matching price ($99).

comment Are there any perk based RPG systems (e.g. Fallout III, Skyrim, etc)?
@DimensionsGaming - System recommendation questions are hard. There's definitely games out there that match what you're looking for - you just need to narrow it down more. Your last comment is a good start. Take a look at this FAQ and see if there's any more detail you can add. Does theme matter? (Cyberpunk, classic fantasy, real life, space, wild west, ...) Do you prefer detailed combat or abstract? Are levels even important? (There's games where characters are only composed of "perks")

comment Is there an effect on player's reaction to treasure when raising the value of gold relative to other coins?
Yes, that's a US-ism. I'm sure there's equivalents in other countries, though.

The way you treat platinum is how many people treat dollar coins IRL. Sure, you could just go to the bank and get a bunch of them, but most people I know are "Oooh, shiny" when they get them and don't want to spend them..... Provided that the local transit system doesn't dispense them as change.

comment Weapons/Means for touch attacks
@mxyzplk - Good question. The linked page explains how the Oradin heals, and it's rather clever, but the whole point is to free you up to do other things in combat... but with neither a high strength nor a high dex, and very little spellcasting, what else will this character be doing?

comment Can a sorcerer use a scroll of a spell not known?
@thedarkwanderer - True, but once you bring in UMD, you can share spells with the party rogue (or fighter) the same way.

comment Are there any “linked” creatures that can only be defeated in tandem?
Like @minnmass, I haven't seen this directly, although I have heard of a lich which had a golem as its phylactery, which would produce similar results.

comment A character with a reach weapon also has the feat Improved Unarmed Strike; does he threaten all squares within 10' simultaneously?
@KRyan - It's actually contradictory in the rules. It says that they include non-hand based strikes, but it also says that attacking with them is "much like attacking with a melee weapon" except for a list of changes which doesn't include doing so without a hand free. And the monk ability specifically and explicitly says it can be done with hands full. So it's a possible (although very literalist) interpretation to say that you can't kick with your hands full unless you're a monk.

I'm not surprised you came at this from the "What does it actually do?" perspective when the rest of us came at it from "What do the rules say about it". +1

comment Is this custom hat-turret too cheap?
@SevenSidedDie - Some of both. It's deliberately designed to be an abuse of the system, but the system itself is far more powerful for the price than the standard rules.

comment Are there rules for building underground structures?
@Ben-Jamin - They ought to be trivial to port over. Most of Ultimate Campaign adds new optional rule sub-systems, so they shouldn't need any changes at all (except the occasional skill rename). Ultimate Rulership, in turn, just expects the UC rules to be in play to be modified, so there shouldn't be much issue there. Be careful of the mass combat rules, though, because there's a few cases where they expect characters to have new-to-Pathfinder class features. Not hard to port, but slightly more pitfalls than with the kingdom/city rules.
