comment Mithril Breastplate + Armor Expert seems ridiculous
...and requires a trait, which full plate doesn't Wearing the full plate with no penalty requires an extra Feat (heavy armor), it may be a "free feat" for some, but it's still a feat. There's also a speed cost that you are forgetting to mention. Regardless of proficiency, Full Plate will slow you down significantly.

comment What does the caster level refer to in the magic items?
So the caster level actually has nothing to do with making the item. Caster level sets the DC of the item, but does not impose any requirement on the creator's caster level. Especially when you consider that non-casters can create magical items. (d20pfsrd.com/magic-items#TOC-Magic-Item-Creation)

comment Making a mount out of an exotic animal
Turns out it doesn't matter: "Animals have Intelligence scores of 1 or 2 (no creature with an Intelligence score of 3 or higher can be an animal)" and the Handle Animal skill is very specifically about Animals.

comment What is the fastest way to earn money without adventuring?
... and for that measure, why don't magic goods ever go on sale? Or become subject to demand? Do Rings of Protection suddenly go "half off" because some shopkeep has extra stock? Take a look at the random item tables, do they actually make any sense? Grab a bunch of character sheets and compare the number of Rings of Protection to the number of Rings of Jumping... random tables say 2:1, pretty sure the character sheets will be 10:1... I agree that the whole thing is a little absurd, I even point it out in the answer :)

@NeilSlater to be clear here, you're cutting right to the core problem of Pathfinder Economics. They honestly don't work in any rational fashion. Two weeks in a Kingmaker campaign and this becomes pretty obvious. Equal questions to ponder: Who cares about gemstones? Magic items are way more valuable, portable and practical. Magic items never "go bad", so they're way better than gold. Nobody would actually trade in gold, they would pass around rings and belts and boots and wands and all manner of magical goods. Think about it, the boots never even go bad...

@DuckTapeal hey it's for the kingdom... have the followers create the items on contract for somebody else. Make it for a fee, so they build 1000gp of work using 500gp of materials provided by the third party and then collect a flat fee of 250gp from that same party. There you go... no "character-created" items, so direct sales, rules bypassed.

comment Making a mount out of an exotic animal
To be clear, you list "exotic but un-intelligent" animals. If your mount is a Blink Dog or a Pegasus with Int 10, I would assume the training rules to be different?

comment Do enemies have the same rules for death as PCs?
One of the underlying challenges with this is actually identifying "knocked out" vs. "totally dead". Especially in the case of Cleric channels, but also with things that regenerate. I'm honestly still not clear about how PCs differentiate between the two or know that a regenerating creature is really done.
