By RAW no. Adding hurl doesn't change the weapon category, just the weapon's use. Weapon chain feats target the type/category. Throwing knives aren't affected by Knife B/M/S, for instance.

I always houserule that they are covered by that, otherwise you have throwing knives (and shurikens) not technically being affected by edged resistance

There are 5 enemies on the gate house. There's only 3 on the keep.

The electric sensation of Oh shit, we are so boned! passes between the two murders as the guardsman breaks away from them. Unsurprisingly, Barden's first response are his blades. The stiletto flies from his hand and once again strikes home, lodging solidly in the meat of the man's back but once more failing to hit anything immediately vital. It's followed up with a hurled dagger, but that weapon  bounces off the chain mail.

Donnagin!Janus instead charges after the man, overtaking him as he stops to retrieve the signal horn. Muttering an invocation to her goddess, she wraps her hands around the grip of the stolen sword and swings at his face with all her might. The edge strikes home across his nose and sinks in until the entire width of the blade is lost inside the ruination of his skull, the force of the strike ejecting one of his eyeballs out of its socket as blood sprays across the stone.

"No reward is worth all this," she hisses, arms quivering as she slowly lowers the dead weight to the ground.

I feel there's a way to get the spirit of this into a feat suitable for this class but I can't really think of it.

The earring was explicitly a spike, not a metalmind.

Barden's trusty stiletto stands ready ready for the golem's failure, and as the two guardsmen are puzzled by the icy blast it unleashes upon them he steps forward, grabs the man around the neck and shanks him savagely in the throat; the narrow blade slips through the mail links and rips through larynx and oesophagus, then the carotid artery as he rotates the weapon in the wound like he was mixing a cake before yanking it out and letting the gurgling corpse sink to the hoar-covered floor.

Unable to get close enough to repeat the performance, he settles for just stabbing the 2nd loyal defender of Balentyne in the back, but although  the long knife again bites home, this time he fails to strike anything immediately vital.

The sudden pain erupting through the poor man presents just enough of an opportunity for Donnagin!Janus to reach inside the guardsman's grasp and yank his sword clear of its scabbard.

"Father...?" he asks in pain and confusion

"Look at me, beloved of Mitra. Look at me. This is the will of gods."

Barden's disguised as Tacitus via the crown

This brings up something about Compounders -- what happens to their metalminds, ingested or 'spiked', when a Leecher burns out their allomantic stores?

Having made all the preparations they can and being acutely aware that any minute now a lot of guardsmen are going to start being rather dead, the conspirators move on in anticipation of the incoming shitstorm. With Barden using the last charge of Janus' borrowed crown to assume the appearance of Tacitus, Donnagin!Janus pokes her head out of the lab door and calls over to the guards.

"Could you two lads do me a wee favour and come in for a moment? We need a quick bit of help to get a surprise ready for the Commander."

Once the two are in the lab, Donnagin!Janus clasps them on the shoulder "I name you both Beloved of Mitra for the aid you give us."

Wands, when you get down to it, are effectively just guns, and folks by-and-large expect guns to be capable of more than just one shot -- though I guess fireball is arguably more like a grenade or missile

In other news, Sam Smith's song for Spectre is now available on Spotify (not YouTube, just Spotify).

To quote my wife when I played it for her: "Nope."

Mrs Wolverine is not wrong. I'd maybe put it over the back end of the closing credits; this is actually worse than the song from Quantum of Solace, partly because there are moments when it nears greatness only to turn tail and run from it.

Go with Damage Defiance (non-magical weapons) for half damage, or just straight out Damage Immunity (non-magical weapons)

Someone wasn't careful enough on their last mission. Housekeeping are going to be pissed.

I think the best bet for the writers would be to make a new show inspired by the core story of the original, but updated it. Instead of a Special Forces squad like the TV show borrow some stuff from Burn Notice, a little from Leverage, a touch from the Expendables, etc. basically everything that came after the A-Team that borrowed from it.

Make the them a black-ops action team. One part the Expendables, one part Mission Impossible, one part Leverage. The sort of group that's equally at home doing covert work at an embassy party or overt actions in some Central Asian backwater. Avoid the secretly working for the government bit from season five though, although they might have to do a 'favor' for someone in it from time to time.

That brings up the question of how much you can change up before you're not doing The A-Team any more and are instead just passing off; if you don't have Hannibal, Face, Mad Dog, and Bad Attitude, on the run from the authorities, then what's the point of bringing back the property?

Taking too much from those other series would be a mistake because by its very nature as a 'wrongly disgraced operatives help people' format the series already invites comparison with them. That's not to say it can't indulge in competence porn, but much as the original show was rooted in morass of the Vietnam war, I think this new one (should it get up) is going to have to be grounded in the shady areas of the current generation of military conflicts in the Middle East in order to (re)establish its own identity.
