Question about Seeker tables and permanent effects of consumables found

Sczarni 2/5

So there was rumor that there would be wording in The Guide 5.0 about how things involving spells and effects at Seeker tables would work. I have not yet found such wording, though the updated guide may have something to say about it when it happens.

I have a feeling I already know how this works, but I figure I should ask anyway as there's the slim chance it may actually work out in my favor. It never hurts to ask, right?

So, at a recent table I played with a Seeker character of mine, we found one of the tomes of stat-plus-one-itude and during the course of the adventure, I actually had 6 days worth of time spent reading it, gaining the stat bonus before we actually hit the end of the adventure.

I asked the table about how that worked, and got the answers I pretty well expected. Still, the GM noted on my chronicle sheet that I'd read it, just in case.

My question is this: At a Seeker table, if you gain the effects of a consumable such as a Tome of something-or-other, do the effects end at the end of the scenario?

I'm assuming they do, and that to benefit from such an item you absolutely must purchase it to gain the stat boost, but I still hold out a sliver of hope that things like that might work differently with a Seeker level adventure.

As far as I know, the new guide went live last night.

And it doesn't mention changing how permanent effects work for Seekers.

So currently, you absolutely must purchase it.

I assumed so, but there's no harm in asking and seeing if anything official comes down the line.

The only dumb question is the one not asked.

So not true. Ex: Which way is up?

Ok, I need better examples, but my imagination is on vacation this week. You get the point. :-)

Depends on whether there is gravity involved (or reverse gravity) or not.

Or worse, if you are on a demiplane with objective or subjective directional gravity.

Actually, there is at least one novel out there where the answer to that question becomes critical.

Also, while flying a plane in a fog bank, or while diving the sense of orientation can become fatally confused.

There are no stupid questions. Only stupid people. >:-p

Hmm, are you familiar with Starfleet Universal Up? You can always tell when a spacecraft is damaged or derelict in Star Trek because it will be failing to observe Universal Up, i.e. it will be listing to one side.
