"All Subtiers" get access to the items listed on the chronicle sheet. If you play the scenario high tier, then you get those items and also access to the high tier ones. There is no fame limit for purchasing items from a chronicle sheet. In fact, I like to purchase all my items from chronicle sheets. That way i don't have to look up how much fame is required. And, it makes each PC a bit more special. Sure, all my fighters, slayers, & rangers can have a +1 naginata, but, I only purchased one for the PC that had it on a chronicle sheet.

They kept entering his circle even after he had a hostage that kept trying to attack him with a light weapon while being grappled and the other party members did keep attacking. He warned them to back off after revealing his true form. Even with my warnings that he was too powerful for the party, the players believed their characters were invincible.
It was my first or second game of PFS back in August 2010. In the first encounter we're headed towards a keep, get surprised by the attackers on the wall, and THUNK! -my level 1 ranger gets critted by an arrow. Like beyond Con score so I'm dead-dead. I sat there dumbfounded for about an hour thinking "Well, this sucks. Never gonna play PFS again..." Then the GM snaps me out of my thoughts, gets my attention, and says "Oops, sorry, dude. I ran that encounter wrong - that was high tier damage." He rolls a die and says "you only take six points." Whew! I kept coming back after that. So that was my first PC death. Which was later fixed, of course.
We had to do an entire table audit here in Denver a few weeks ago. Some of us veterans kept noticing a few players having wierd numbers, items, feats, traits, etc... on their PCs over the past few months. Rather than single out certain individuals, the VOs decided on an "Audit for all players before playing at the FLGS in July". The players had to send the GM pics or files of their sheets so they could audit them. It was a wise decision. Oh! Those that submitted their sheets for audit were given a boon from the GM's or VO's collection. I got a Vine Leshy!
Wow, FlamesofChaos! I just checked out the website for that Carnage Con you're planning to GM at. Looks like a ton of fun! Luckily you have until November to plan on what to GM. I noticed the theme for the con is science fiction. As for a PFS scenario, the Phantom Phenomena quest series focuses on the Occult. Might fit the theme if Lovecraftian can be considered that. The first few Season 6 scenarios have a science-fantasy theme which might work. And, since everyone is still quite new to Starfinder, you might consider running one of the free to download Starfinder adventures for beginners.
How long will it take you to get to downtown Denver? Mind you, the Denver Airport is almost in Kansas. No joke.
After 8 years I finally got a new smartphone so I will now be able to post regularly on the Paizo boards. No more time limits on the library computer. I have never played any type of online game ever but i am seriously considering giving PFS pbp games a try. PFS is still doing quite well at all the stores up n down the Colorado front range (except this weekend with Pride Fest, Denver Comic Con, and Father's Day happening all in the same weekend). I'm looking forward to GMing my Core game of Perils of the Pirate Pact on Sunday. Oh! And i hit 150 games GMd a couple weeks ago. Now on to get in a few Specials for that 5th star! :)
