Master of Trade and 2PP purchase?

Pathfinder Society Field Guide page 19 wrote:
Master of Trade (Fame 20, 4 PP) Using faction contacts and mercantile experience, you can always get yourself the best deal when buying goods. Once per game session, you may make any single purchase you could normally make at a 10% discount. This discount is not available on spellcasting services or material components.

How does this interact with the generic prestige award "Free purchase up to 750 gp"?

Can I spend 2 prestige to acquire an item that costs 833 gp or less, since it actually costs 833gp*0.9=750gp for me? Or would it be 2PP*0.9=1.8PP for an item of cost 750gp or less? Or do they just not interact at all?

They don't interact. Master of Trade gives a discount when buying goods.

The Prestige Award of an item worth 750 gp or less is not a purchase. It is a favor from your faction. Note it says, "you can acquire..."

Coupon good for cash discount only. Not valid with other offers.

Oooh, thanks for reminding me that this vanity exist.

This is going to make the new fullplate for my mammoth more affordable.

I think you still need sufficient fame for the item, even if you're getting it at 10% discount?

You're in luck!

Large-sized nonhumanoid Adamantine Fullplate is always available ^^.

I see your large nonhumanoid adamantine fullplate and raise you a huge nonhumanoid +1 noqual fullplate :)

5/5

Nope, still had to buy that Mammoth Lance -.-

So... Just to be sure, I pay the 16500 for my stuff, then multiply, right? Or is it 1500 x 4 and then the 15000 for adamantine. Can't remember, and too tire to look it up.

There is some disagreement about that.

I'm in the camp of (1500x4)+15000.

As for the mammoth lance, it's gotta wait. Need my mammoth protected first.

Just remember to buy as much on the armor in one big chunk as you can. The vanity covers purchases, but not upgrades. So buying +1 full plate armor has a higher discount than buying full plate armor and then upgrading it later.

5/5

Good point and thank you BNW. I think I am gonna hold off on purchase though until I get confirmation which way my Event organizer and primary GMs handle the cost if if there is some dispute though.

It's also for entertainment value.

A mammoth wearing a pale green crystal fullplate using cunning pantomime to talk to random strangers is a very memorable sight. Also helps to distract people from whatever it is my partymembers are doing.

I don't think Preston listens to me about the forums anymore....
