A later section implies that you can only apply to a level 1 but I don't think that's the case.

Downtime: Pregenerated characters can use Downtime
I think the level of earn income tasks for pregens has changed at least once since we started and I don't remember the current answer.
Access is a specific OP term and not my argument.
I'm saying you need the actual animal. So even in non OP you'd still need a roc.
As what one might call a second order problem to that issue though is
OP does have rules for how you get things (access) , and currently features no way to acquire one that I know of.
Encountering/subduing one in a scenario would not change that.
Let's try this again:
1) are GMs allowing only the Animals from the CRB? Or any source? What CR are you allowing?
Any animal the character has.
the animal doesn't gain the Minion Trait. Are GMs ruling that it's always Frightened at the start of combat?
That's a rules question not a PFS question.
it's a Downtime activity to use the feat. Should GMs sign off on what animal was acquired?
This feat does not acquire animals.
the animal is helpful to the one who bonded with it. What attitude are GMs giving it towards the rest of the party?
Not PFS specific, may I point you to the rules forum again.

The guide does not limit your downtime actions, just gives you a baseline list. Other feats/powers etc can give you additional options such as reviving an animal companion or making a bond.
Sandstone Secret is only one part...
We're online at the moment so you don't even need to drive anywhere. If you're interested in GMing PFS2 1-10 this Sunday at 4 let me know and I'll walk you through our standard procedures, we're generally extremely chill.
Especially since there's no current need to maximize players at a table for efficient physical space usage at my frequently sold out venue...
For the venue I run I've moved warhorn's table limit to 5 for June and the rest of May. Going forward this will allow us some flexibility in an emergency. Also I suspect on average the 5 player table experience is superior to the 6 player table experience, especially with the way PFS2 handles scaling.
In some cases this likely means we'll need another GM but I've got faith in our local community that we can handle it.
And if not I'll shanghai Nefreet and make him GM all the slots. I've got that power right? right?
Ya, since there's currently a pbp convention going on as a player you'll get 5 ACP instead of the normal 4. Collect enough (80) and you can trade them in to play a Leshy or Iruxi. (Once that system works)
Always happy to help answer questions.
I find I do best making my own sheets but in case you're looking for inspiration: Here is my tracking spreadsheet. I've got characters and then upcoming games on left with adventures and where credit has gone and is going to the right.
and Here is my character build skeletons.
(I do accounting so spreadsheets are like a way of life for me)
If you're looking to try a virtual tabletop (voice chat, playing through a scenario together for ~4-5hours in a single go etc) check out The PFS online discord. They've got games going on all the time.
Big thanks to Dennis for helping me out with my inability to spell half the party's names correctly and for various other minor bumps along the way.
This shelter in place has really started getting to me, my typing error rate has sky rocketed and I feel like I have to spend half as much time again going over my posts and fixing things.
The additional reputation granted by faction bonuses does not give fame.
Also you spend fame.
Rewards for 1-03:
If the PCs recover at least five of the relics from
Goldenflame and the college, they each earn 2 Fame
and 2 Reputation for any faction associated with their
currently slotted faction boon. For the purpose of
fulfilling the primary objectives, the statue of Jingh from
area B9 counts as two relics.
Envoys’ Alliance: If the PCs fulfill the secondary objective
So if you complete primary and secondary you'll get 4 fame, 4 rep with whatever your faction is and 2 rep with Envoy's alliance.

I think Warhorn fixed this in the last year or so and now properly locks out overlapping time slots, need to check to be sure though.
Warhorn does have a setting so you can view the schedule in your own time zone. I recommend this if you are struggling with remembering to apply the conversion. Also, notice that any announcements we make will be from the perspective of Pacific time (pst).
Just to help avoid any accidental confusion out there, it's actually PDT.
(Although since it's pst nowhere at the moment it's an unlikely confusion but I'm sure somebody somewhere might end up an hour off)
-7h from GMT/UTC
They definitely get played after the roll.

You may not use a power that doesn’t apply to your current situation. For example, you may not play a card to reduce damage when damage isn’t being suffered, and you may not play a card to evade a monster when you are not encountering a monster.
Until you've rolled, you cannot play a reroll effect as there's nothing to reroll.
This is additionally supported by several examples later in the book.

With both blessings in play, Sajan’s combat check is 3d8 + 1d6 + 2. Sam rolls horribly and gets a total of 11, including a 1 on one of the d8s. This is not enough to defeat the Ghoul, so Sajan is in danger of suffering some damage. Remembering the hour power, Sam discards a card to reroll the d8 that rolled a 1.

Paizo Blog: Battle of the Pantheons: Pathfinder Society contest hosted by the Know Direction Network
Which of the gods in Lost Owens Gods & Magic are PFS legal? I’m a huge Know Direction Fan and so will be submitting just because of their support. :)
Achaekek is limited.
Crchdevils, demon lords, outer gods and grea old ones, Walena and All queens of the night are restricted.
Limited: A limited option is rarer in Society play, but not unheard of. A limited option can be selected only if specifically allowed by a boon—whether from the Achievement Points system, a Chronicle Sheet, or another other option from a Pathfinder Society source—even if the option is common or if the character meets the normal prerequisites or access requirements printed in the option’s source.
Restricted: A restricted option is one that is not generally appropriate for all tables or conducive to the Pathfinder Society's shared campaign setting, such as a one-of-a-kind weapon, a horrific spell used by only the most evil magic-users, or player options that require high degrees of GM adjudication. Such options will generally be made available for Society Play in only a very few special cases, such as via boons given out as part of charity events, if at all.

Which part are you describing as "minor," because not being able to get GMs to volunteer is a pretty major problem as far as I'm concerned.
Minor: Missing out on a few AcP because a slot doesn't happen.
Is the lack of ACP for GMs who's slots don't fire a barrier to GM recruitment for you? I don't see it, but understand that PFS runs very differently in different places so suspect there's something I'm missing.
Logue's tenure was rather short...
The campaign launched at GenCon, Aug 14 2008.
Logue left Paizo in September 2008
The OP guide page on the Pathfinder Wiki is a pretty good source for some of that early history.
Right, I think the one listed on the boon page is the one mentioned in this blog post. I had forgotten about that one since the timing for it was so out of sync.
A free rebuild using the Boon system.
The window for applying this boon will close on September 19th. Rebuilding will continue to appear on the Achievement Points chart after that date, but it will no longer be a free option.
Nefreet: I will note that you posted in the thread there so I can only imagine you read the blog.
The easiest way to fix your problem seems to be either revert the character to the way it was before or spend your points before you have online access to them by writing it down and fixing the online expenditure later.
Alright... Since 6 weeks ago when this was posted. The update that set pf2 boon points equal to scenarios gmed/played, ignored quests. Disabled spending playtest points, messed up pf1/sfs table count and star/nova displays.
I believe we've had an update from Tonya saying the solution failed Q/A.
Personally 2020 is starting to seem iffy to me.
