b)Is there any way to take steps on a Path without being a Priest or Paladin? (The Blessed feat only gives you one step.)

Sage can gain path of the devoted, but it says in the book "Acolyte and path of the devoted (1 Step)" which makes me not sure if that's a maximum or suggesting just 1 step at a time.

Our partners at Pen & Paper Games also made an audio recording of the seminar, which you can find here!

This makes an entire world of difference.

I think you lose something by removing the black bars from the header and footer art -- and as posted on Ben's devArt account, the header and footer are mis aligned You actually have to cut the top in half through the flame and slide each half outwards.

Honestly, I sort of like the white space as it focuses attention on the header & footer art.

Alternatively, you could use it for custom art, such as the various character portraits...

Divia loses herself amidst the gathering throng, drawing the sort of sly attention from the mainly human population that a young elf is often want to do even when she isn't looking for it. But she doesn't mind these little reminders of her longevity, not now she's capable of responding to them with something other than innocent bemusement.

It takes her about ten minutes of aimless meandering to notice the seeming sculptural denudement of the town. Running her fingers over the scars reveals surfaces that have been exposed to the elements for some time.

Her curioisty piqued, Divia casts about, looking for someone to question who might actually be inclined to answer the questions of a silverless stranger.

I wonder if they used a pic of Jane Fonda by mistake.  Cool

Wouldn't that be the Babebarian specialty?

The clerk shrugs apologetically.

"Maybe if you have something to drink he'll be finished by the time you are, sir?" he suggests

It used to be that I loved Anne McCaffery. But that affair stopped after All the Weyrs of Pern when she started cowriting with her son and I realised just how much of a crazy old lady she was.

Katherine Kerr is definitely on the list.

By sheer volume so too is Terrence Dicks, by far the most proliffic author of the Doctor Who target range. Sadly, he's joined Anne is the once loved pile since he started writing actual novels, which by and by have been pretty mundane to outright tedious.
