the Advanced Talents seem to be missing, I still have to read the pathfinder version, do you think they can be translated 1:1 or that they need some modifications?
No idea: I still haven't gotten around to reading it, I'm not that good at mechanics, and I wasn't the one doing the conversion.

My best guess is you should compare them to the closest FC spell and use that as a guide for the upper limit of power.

The Tradition rules seems to be very easy to implement (FC would need at least the verbal and somatic components, otherwise the Silent Spell feat loses any utility as well as the mage pouch).
FC's version would be a new combo of Somatic and Focus Components.  I'd be hesitant to let FC spherecasters get spell points back for taking drawbacks as that might tip the amount too far.

Marvel's Cloak and Dagger trailer

This is coming in 2018 on Freeform TV.

Looks... interesting? My only real exposure to the characters was during the 'Maximum Carnage' cross-over event for Spider-man. I never was quite sure what either of their powers actually were.

Dagger makes daggers out of light that can either harm or heal people (her choice). Obviously they also glow pretty brightly, which can be useful in certain circumstances.
Cloak can teleport himself and others through what's called the Darkforce Dimension. He can also leave you there pretty much indefinitely IIRC, but there are some limitations that prevent him from doing so, and of course anyone sufficiently powerful will break out without any real explanation. Note that Cloak's teleporting is pretty much the most powerful TP in the Marvel Universe, at one point he simultaneously transported a few dozen individuals of various power levels from the Negative Zone to Manhattan.

Are there rules for making a Skeleton PC? I looked through all the Unborn variants and feats but there doesn't seem to be anything other than... maybe charging a player character two feats (two feats seem to equal the number of traits gained for the template) for wanting to apply the Skeletal template to his PC.

Rise of the Crab God - True Tales of Alternate History - Civilization VI

Considering that Firaxis is based in Maryland, I get the feeling they had a lot of fun making this episode.  I know I had fun watchin' it. ;D

Yeah it's just a pity that divine casters don't get to use the spheres.
You could probably mash together some hybrid progression to give the Path classes both sperecasting and paths each at a reduced rate.

About the spell points:
do you think that the ones that the mage class give are too many under the spheres usage? Considering that the spellcasting feats still apply, I think that it should be good as it is.
Maybe, maybe not.  You do have a point with the need for spell points to use spellcasting feat tricks.

Gnatslayer feels like it should have more of a cost to it, e.g. reducing the damage die of the stones by one size.

Which suggests a complex trick, Lionslayer, that would instead create a singke stone with a damage die one size greater...

That's a cool idea. I already had a trick that increased the die size, and I like the complimentary action provided there, so I included it.

I absolutely agree with TKDB here.
Whenever you give for free something that others have to "pay" for, you're unbalancing the game.

So, Doctor Who last night. I still don't really like Moffat's stories on the whole but in the name of Zathrus that's how you do a penultimate episode cliffhanger.
