I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've been branching out more in the past few years.

comment How do Mythic Spells known interact with classes that can retrain spells known?
The text you quote says that, to cast a mythic spell, you cast the regular spell and then spend a point to make it mythic. The section you bold is a clarification, which explains an implication of the first sentence. In addition, the section you bold says clearly that you have to "prepare the non-mythic version", not that you can cast the mythic version without having the non-mythic version prepared.

Wouldn't this also happen with the core Sorcerer's spell retraining ability?

comment What's the difference between a roleplaying game and a board game?
"I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description ["role-playing game"], and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the ["game"] involved in this case is not that."

comment What's the most efficient way to build an underground base?
Checking through the monster description again; are you sure that Dire Badgers can create usable tunnels? There are no official PF rules for burrowing that I can find, and the assumption in 3.5 was that burrowing creatures didn't leave behind a tunnel unless something said that they did. For example, "Burrowing ankhegs can construct tunnels by pausing frequently to shore up the walls with a thicker, less caustic secretion from their mouths." The Dire Badger doesn't have anything like that in its description.
