comment Do alchemists/investigators with swift alchemy take less time to make extracts?
Bombs don't have any "creation time" other than the daily limit and the standard action to throw them. Preparing them is considered a part of resting, just as a cleric praying for his spells or a Wizard studying his spellbook.

comment How can I increase my reach in Pathfinder?
@Dorian I didn't mean a whole lot. There are some shenanigans that you can do with an oversized weapon and Effortless Lace, but they mostly have to do with getting more damage than you would normally, and I was simply getting confused.)

comment Why is it more difficult to hit AC than other defences in 13th Age?
+1 Miss Damage and Flexible's that trigger on a Miss are where it's at.

comment What does Black Marketeer do?
@SevenSidedDie Indeed; and even if Nethys is fully compliant, the terms of SE's license means that we wouldn't be. Which is why I simply provided a link. :)

Pretty sure they operate under Paizo's community use policy as non-commercial. They certainly make no effort to hide; every update is posted directly to Paizo's own forums, which are very actively moderated.

You can find both feats texts over at the Archives of Nethys: Black Marketeer and Profits of Kalistrade

comment Do I get to choose spells for a Faerie Dragon Familiar?
Sure. The Faerie Dragon has an SLA too. Greater Invisibility, Self Only, 3/day. In addition to it's SLA, it has Spells. Just like, say, a Drow Sorcerer would. I'm not denying that the SLA is immutable. But the other spells listed are listed separately as Spells Known. Which means something very different from Spell-Like Ability. (The thread you've linked, meanwhile, is also not relevant to the question I'm asking. It discusses whether the Dragon's caster level scales, which it almost certainly does not, as I noted. There is no discussion of changing the spell list.)

Except that they're not listed under the racial stats. They're listed in the same place as NPC Sorcerer or NPC Wizard's Spells Known are listed.

comment How to deal with players rolling dice before establishing the context of the action?
The one exception I tend to allow, is if a player is narrating a course of action, and wants to roll what they think is appropriate as the roll for that course of action as they narrate it - declaring it at that moment - I'll let the roll stand if it was relevant. For example, "I'm going to sneak up behind him -and roll stealth - and then try to stab him in the back! [roll to hit]"

comment Which Golarion deities would support and encourage a Witch-Hunter Inquisitor among their faithful?
Not trust him until he earns it; it's really no different from the paladin being in a party with a thief -- a delicate, but by no means intractable situation.

comment Which Golarion deities would support and encourage a Witch-Hunter Inquisitor among their faithful?
Part of the problem is that I'm not entirely sure. :P Waiting on the DM to make up his mind between Reign of Winter, Iron Gods, and Wrath of the Righteous. As for alignment, I'm comfortable working with any non-evil generally.

comment What Feats do I want to take to maximize my effectiveness with a crossbow?
@LeesudFreak I probably wouldn't accept an answer based only on 3.5 material. But I'd probably upvote it. :)

comment Blood Obsessed Character with Weaponized Blood?
+1 for refluffing. There's no reason not to go that route, and it's quite easy to do.

comment Blood Obsessed Character with Weaponized Blood?
It'd be stupidly easy to refluff an Alchemist to say that the 'key ingredient' of his various bombs/extracts is a drop of his own sanguine essence. You may also want to look into the Scarred Witch Doctor archetype - and even combine it with White Haired Witch and refluff the hair-weapon into a 'bloodblade' of some sort.

Aha! I had missed the High Arcana talent; yup, that clarifies things explicitly and perfectly.

comment What items and environment does an Alchemist need to brew Extracts?
It's important to clarify here: to brew capital P Potions that can be use by anyone and don't count against his spells per day? Or to brew his own alchemical Extracts?

comment What are some suggestions for a brawler-type unarmed character in Pathfinder?
Another option that you might want to consider is going with Natural Weapons - for instance, an Alchemist with the Feral Mutagen discovery, is an unorthodox, but very potent 'unarmed' melee combatant. Or of course, any race with natural attacks, at which point, you can play any martial class - Ranger with the Natural Weapon specialization is another option... etc.

comment How can I add an ability to PCGen?
@mxyzplk I'm sorry, but I didn't think "How do I add an ability" was particularly unclear.
