I did a search for this and didn't see anything on it. But my question is using the boon Research Specialist and magic item Tome of Clear Thought together.
With Research Specialist, if you complete it, you will gain a +1 Inherent Bonus to Intelligence. The Tome of Clear Thought also gives an inherent bonus to INT.
My question is, if you complete the boon and then buy a Tome of Clear Thought+1, will you be able to stack them even though they are the same bonus?
If you did it the the other way, I can't see the powers that be tell you no on the bonus of the boon just because you already purchased a +1 Tome, so I wasn't sure if you would be able to do so the other way (boon then Tome). Has there been a ruling on it at one point?
