comment What Ways Can I Make My Character Huge Without Changing His Form?
Extra note about Psychic Expansion is that you can also use the 10 minutes / level by spending an extra 2 points. So 9 points (at level 9) you can become Huge for 3 hours. At higher levels, that time goes up, so while not "permanent", a higher level psychic warrior can be Huge for most of the day.

comment Can a familiar learn languages from ranks in linguistics?
How does this affect "improved familiars"? Many of those familiars already do have language skills.

comment Average/optimal AC for core classes per level
@starwed So the Mithril Buckler is actually a good cheat, that sidesteps all of the proficiency rules and the arcane spell failure rules. That stated it costs 2k for a +2, so it is expensive, for the same relative gold cost, it is adding a +1 to AC, possibly +2. It's also subject to some DM decisions around requirements for Somatic casting. General rules seem to be that you need one hand available for the somatic component and the buckler is clear that you lose its bonus when you use that hand. So if you use a Rod to cast, you lose the AC bonus.

So I fixed the Sorcerer number they were high by one or two points.

comment Do the Enlarge and Shrink spells only really affect damage and AC, or do they do more?
No, CMB is based only on STR so it changes with your size. CMD is based on STR+DEX+Size. So the STR & DEX generally cancel each other out, but the size still applies.

comment Magus Spellstrike, Spell Combat and Quicken Spell
So Spell Perfection has a prerequisite of 3 other Metamagic Feats and 15 ranks of Spellcraft. To achieve this you would need to spend 4 of your 10 feats (at 15th level) and the Spell Perfection would only work for Arcane Mark. Then end result would be one extra attack per turn. And of course you would be leaving magical marks on all of your targets :) I'm not sure there's anything RAW against this. But I'm also not clear if it's really dangerous. Magus characters tend to deal most of their damage from Shocking Grasp-style spells, not from their straight attacks.

comment How does augmenting a psionic power with multiple augmentation options work?
Extra note, remember that you can never spend more points on a single ability than your manifester level. In the case of Precognition which is a first level power, this means that the Swift version cannot be used until level 7.
