Under My Account when you click the boons tab you can find them listed with the rest of the boons. They're worded like this:

I will say the Boons page could use a better interface to be a little less overwhelming but for now that's what we've got.
Hope to run into many of you in other AP's. Lots of characters here I would have loved to play with!
I can't speak for Kittenmancer but some players are very good at seperating character knowledge from player knowledge. I don't think they're the first to play in an AP they were also running.

you didn't mention it, but what's your stance on magic item crafting? some GMs aren't fans and some adventures make it impractical.
Obviously the GM's opinion may vary, but the players guide says this:

With ready access to a huge variety of services, the PCs will have little need for crafting feats.

Am I correct in that this would be your first time GMing an AP? From your profile it might even be your first time GMing a PbP game.
If these are both true then I highly highly caution against a second table. I'd rather not get chosen at all, then end up in a game where the GM burns out, and if you have no experience GMing a play by post you should start slow.
It's a bigger commitment than it seems, and it takes a lot of patience from everyone involved. AP's usually take a year or two at least on these forums. Two games sounds reasonable, sure it's just two tables. But that's 10 characters, with feats and class abilities and stat blocks. Ten character histories and interactions that you need to play off of. Ten people that need you to clarify or adjudicate rules. Ten people worth of loot to track. 10 posts a day to rely on to move things forward. For two years.
If the groups act differently, than you may be recycling less posts than as suggested above and having to conduct the same scenario in two very different ways.
There are GM's that can handle that and do it well, but if this is your first foray, don't bite off more than you can chew. I say this as someone who burnt out as a player and a GM on these same forums because life took some wild turns and keeping up with these forums became overwhelming. You never know what can happen.
Run one table, indulge in the story you tell with those people and learn from it. If you want to come back later and start a second table then make that choice from an informed, experienced position.
If you have not already read it, check out:
Having played through an entire AP with Painlord, I can attest that they know what they're talking about.
To take the Noble Scion Variant that lets you be part of a major house you either need Child of Oppara or a Charisma of 13 or Higher. As long as you meet either prerequisite you can take the variant and be part of a larger noble house.

The trait just says you need the Noble Scion feat, it doesn't say "in addition to" the Child of Oppara trait.
There were links in the Update One and Update Two emails, mine initially went to my spam folder so it's worth checking to see if that's where they ended up.
In any case this is the reporting link for Gameday games that have been completed.

Ironically when I clicked the link for the website went down. It is significantly more stable however, as when I can get on at least I'm logged in and able to post.
With the limited options for Starfinder races, not only is the pool to choose from small, but many of the icons are similar, or are actually the same person. Which can be confusing on a map or when reading posts.
Also on a forum dedicated to playing your own character that you designed, I'd say the ability to represent that PC is pretty important.
I see what you're saying, that it's more Quality of Life then an actual problem, but for me it would significantly improve my enjoyment when playing Starfinder games. I'm already in a few and the avatar redundancy had gotten a little confusing at times.
I don't necessarily disagree but I think it's a bit too vague. Additional context is the whole reason I opened this thread.
Unfortunately there hasn't been much more context yet given the small number of printed materials.
Seems pretty obvious to me that they can speak just fine, it's just not the preferred form of communication.
"Not preferred" and "Social Taboo" are not the same thing. If it's just minor preference, then who cares, if Shirren consider it appalling, they may avoid it in situations that might require some sort of vocalization.
All published material so far has them speaking exclusively through telepathy.
I just checked the blog post that revealed the Shirren, and the one with the Shirren Iconic Mystic and neither presents the telepathy that way.
It's a realistic reason however, and one I might default to, but I'm going to wait a little bit, hoping some more info comes out.
I only realized it because I'm in a combat with my Shirren Mystic at the moment, and he's more than 30ft away from any ally, so I started considering whether he would use his voice and realized I have no definitive answer 1 way or the other.
So, the CRB says that Shirren only speak outloud in Formal situations. Their telepathy is limited to 30ft.
This would be severely limiting in combat, as any ally more than 30ft would the be outside the range of a Shirrens ability to communicate.
I can't find anything saying wether or not Shirren are capable of physically speaking languages other than their own. Has anyone else caught anything that suggests this. Would it be completely unlike a Shirren to shout audibly in combat?
I'll probably assume they can speak all languages out loud until otherwise mentioned, but I'm still unsure as to whether or not they would.
You are my hero and a far less lazy person than me as well!
I could print them, but since I only play PFS on these forums there's not really a need for it. The older ones came in full sheet form so the objectives were right under the bonuses which made it easier. I could rearrange the images with another program but I'm not sure why after 8 seasons of full sheet versions the half sheet is now the only one available.
