I guess that is the usual error of looking at the page your PDF viewer is showing you the actual page and counting the cover. I heard some viewers do not have this problem.

Fortune effects (like Hero Points, per p. 467) can't modify downtime activities. Mentioned under Rituals on p. 408 of the Core Rulebook, Downtime (Checks) on p. 500,
Thank you so much for finding this ^^

I very much agree with the suggestion to put this in a FAQ.
Well, IIRC Paladins or Clerics of a good deity can refocus while they heal, no real reason to exclude Druids I guess.
I very much appreciate the concern about not having GM deal with too many rolls, though if people have more than 8 days, just letting them use their rolled for Earn income for 8-12 days would streamline it a bit.
What I am actually curious about, can you still use any remaining hero points you might have to reroll your earn income check?

No, that sceanrio does not give you an actual Wayfinder, though players can buy one after their first sceanrio (most should give 4 Fame)
That is a normal boon literally every character can buy.
Regarding the increasing cost, I am not super happy with that myself, I had planned to buy several levels 2 characters, but now I will just wait a bit and buy a level 3 for some of my points.
Some scenarios work since they were written for repeat play, others... if I am honest some players have a really hard time not to let their knowledge affect the scenario (though that already happens if they had to GM it already) and plenty of others prefer to avoid playing with those that would replay a scenario based on previous bad experiences.
Right now we are not in a perfect situation, the number of replayable options is only going to increase with time, and even right now we have a lot of ways to play PF2 even if the AP and the module are not sanctioned yet.
If you find yourself with nothing to play, I can wholeheartedly suggest trying to learn to GM and/or look at other org play options like SFS. Personally I already have a hard time staying up to date with all the new releases.
A part of me hopes that we will get an appropriately priced replay option as part of the AcP redemption, and I can see why the demand for more replays is high at the moment, though unlimited replay is something that will just do more harm than good (IMHO).

Well at least the first hero point clearly is not optional, the others currently seem to be optional, with a strong suggestion to hand out a couple.I have read a couple of good suggestions and it seems clear that GMs have a good idea of how they want to use them:
Some want to give them to players that appear on time or find other reasons to reward players for positive behavior. I just want to give them out at a fixed point since the very idea of favoritism is pretty abhorrent to me.
I would not be surprised if some groups want to avoid using them as their own personal hard mode.

DC for other skils is, unclear but according to the DC adjustments table it is likely at least +2, really could use a clarification.
I recall reading somewhere that the pregens have received more consumables to account for them not being to benefit from training, might have been in the announcement blog of the Pathfinder Training (or in the comments).
RE level 5 pre-gens, I let players do a level 3 dayjob with the pregen's mod, given a lack of alternatives or clarification.
With the release of the new edition, I have been planning a lot of characters, and a lot of them are elves, for any build that only really work with multiclass feats, this new elven heritage would be a no-brainer.
The big deal is actually not getting it early (that is kinda nice for level 1 play) but getting a bonus ancestry feat without having to learn this trick from associating with humans.
Since this seems to be a callback, I wonder how old you have to be to remember the D&D and AD&D times where elves could be fighter/wizards ^^
I kinda hope that I won't have to wait until next year for that stuff and that Gods & Magic just goes into more details.
Somebody needs to write this in the style of a Hercule Poirot book that just happens to be during a fancy tea party in a far of a country home. Add a couple of retired warriors, maybe a bit of scandal and of course .....murder.....
I really like Thursty's post, and the only thing I would add is that one could perhaps make the Jadnura boon generic, letting players of all factions purchase it based on their characters access to all-faction boons.
This is just my personal opinion, but I have characters that like to identify a bit more with their factions and Jadnura is a bit controversial, for some characters he is a kind of hero, for others, he is an idiot with blood on his hands.
As much as I love Starfinder, I already find it hard to keep up with all the new scenarios and products Paizo produces, but I also GM about as much as I get to play and there are only so many hours in the day.

I don’t want to see the retail incentive to have anything to do with hero points. They should do other things similar to their function in 1E. Bonus Hero Points is a nice tie-in for the promotional item program, but we have to cultivate more diverse bonuses than simply throwing Hero Points around like candy. It will devalue some of the rewards we already offer like campaign coins and such.
Sounds like you would be in favour of it granting something like the ability to prevent your dying value increasing once, and/or making the flat check to recover while dying a bit easier.

I experienced this myself as my halfling rogue dual-wielding kukri is not currently possible. But that doesn’t stop me from playing the game. There are plenty other character builds I am interested in until such time as the option I want becomes available. The minute I read about rarity, I knew it was going to be a problem for some people.
We might have to wait until the world guide releases or we get some clarification to which region Kukris belong. Fortunately, weapon focus is no longer a thing and you can likely move your runes.

Look, its perfectly okay to make mistakes, but intentionally adding more flaws for crit fails really is not running the scenario as written.
