Glad to be part of the discussion. :)

I've been an on-and-off RPG player for a long time. I played 1st edition D&D with a neighbor when I was a kid, and then multiple distinct D&D games in college. In the last 5 years, I have been part of a steady group that has played D&D 3.5, Vampire Requiem, and now Pathfinder. My favorite part of any RPG is getting a new character started... backstory and all. After that, a well set-up character is definitely easier and more fun to role-play.

comment How far will Eagle Eye let me see on the open ocean?
The only limit to this spell on the open ocean is the limit of your visual acuity, as the spell description states: "You can see from this vantage as if you were actually there, rotating your viewpoint 360 degrees. You perceive with your normal visual senses." So to determine the level of detail you see or anything unusual you might notice would come down to Perception despite the phenomenal field of view. :)

comment Does the main target of the ghoul touch spell get a saving throw?
It's a touch attack to attempt to apply the spell. Then a fort save to resist - resistance negates the spell effect. Only if the spell is successfully applied will the secondary effect occur, at which point everyone else saves to avoid being sickened.

Exactly. Hit with touch to apply spell, save vs spell effect (fort negates). If spell is applied, secondary effect (sickened) also has a fort save.

So, while I'll freely admit that I think DC +1/10ft is crude and unweildy, it's what is in the book. This translates to a DC +528 at one mile (5280 feet). Of course other modifiers come in to play, like size, color (camouflage -vs- contrast), movement, atmospheric conditions (clear -vs- haze) etc. So you'd see land (very low DC) LONG before a creature on the shore. The final DC is in the GM's hands. The character's perception bonus, even with a Take 20 -vs- the DC still doesn't allow you to SEE to the limits of the spell field of vision.

Functionally, in game, you'd use the hypotenuse of the triangle to calculate the DC for the perception check. At DC + 1/10ft, that adds up fast. Even taking 20 on the check, it gets harder as that distance increases.

The amount of useful detail you could see at that distance (gender, activity, weapons, etc.) would come down to a perception check with DC modifiers for distance and other conditions, certainly color of the clothing could factor in. :)

comment Can you take 10 when creating an item?
I get the impression, after poking around a variety of forums, that the system is designed to make magic item creation easy for those that invest in feats and who have all the prerequisites. It is also apparently designed to make the same items possible but difficult and expensive for others to create.

I would also not be surprised, however, if a GM decided not to allow Take 10 for certain uses, even when a straight read of the rule book doesn't restrict the use. :)
