but, Fame limits to buy from factions vs available from chronicle sheet has me confused.
For example, Tier 4-5 of Silent Tide gives me access to a screaming bolt for 267gp. But if you have 5 or more fame, you can buy anything costing 500gp or less from your faction, right? And if you're playing tier 4-5, there's no way, unless you're seriously playing up with a 1st level or poorly played 2nd lvl character, that you don't have 5 fame. So why bother listing the screaming bolt on the chronicle sheet?
This apparent redundancy is the cause of my confusion. Help?
Redundant items like that serve the same purpose as the pizza party that the losing team gets in a youth league soccer game.. You give out "better luck next time" stuff so even if people didn't earn it so they feel included and special. ^_^
