I suppose I could start another thread as this question is off topic, but I'll try it here first--Since I can use 2 PP to purchase a single item worth up to 750 gp, does a suit of armor with armor spikes added count? I could get a masterwork breastplate (200 + 150) with masterwork cold iron armor spikes (100 + 300), right?
How does that work with the rules for upgrading it to magical (since items bought with PP cannot be resold)? What I mean is, I know +1...
That seems to be a legal 2pp purchase. The question is does armor+armor spikes count as 1 item or 2, if it is 1 than that purchase works, but enchanting both is going to be very hard on Fame Prereqs.
As for upgrading it, you can add +1 as weapon or armor any time (always available), but you'll otherwise need Fame = to the total value of the item not just what you've paid for it. So for +2 armor you'd need enough fame for a 4,750gp item not a 4,000gp item
Right, and then presumably if you sold it later you'd get just 2,000, not 2,375. Thanks! That makes a lot of sense.
The reason I assumed that armor + armor spikes equals one item is because armor spikes are listed on the armor chart of the CRB as "extras" and the cost is "+50gp" instead of just "50 gp". I might be splitting hairs, but I felt that distinction meant that it is an add-on to a piece of armor and is, therefore, one item. I'm not sure how it would work if you wanted to add an armored kilt to an armor purchase used with PP, though.
Ok, one more question--so I know that I can sell all gear back at full value as long as I'm Level 1 (stuff bought with gold, not PP). Suppose I finish my 3rd scenario and get my 3rd XP. Can I sell all of my stuff back at full value, after the scenario is done, BEFORE leveling up to Level 2?
