Prestige Vanity Purchasing Limit Per Chronicle


Pathfinder Society

Sovereign Court

The other night the Venture Captain told me that I could only purchase one thing at a time using Prestige points. I had made multiple purchases of vanities, not realizing there may have been a limit.

Checking the guild guide, on page 22 there is a reference stating that a GM can limit the spending of Prestige if it obstructs gameplay, making it sound like Prestige can be spent multiple times.

The Venture Captain pointed out that on page 21, there is a note that only once per chronicle may you spend 2 Prestige to purchase an item worth 750 gold of less for free.

As I'm purchasing vanities (such as multiple vanity followers, titles, and businesses) and not items with an explicit gold value, I don't see this as applying to the free item purchase limit.

Any thoughts?

Just the "1 free item per session" restriction, as far as I've ever known.

In fact I think you can even technically get two free items: one for 1pp, and another for 2pp.

If your GM was correct, then getting a Raise Dead and a Restoration in the same session would be difficult.

This is what my VOs have told me.

I don't think you could do both the 1PP and 2PP purchases, since the 2PP says 750gp or less and the 1PP is 'or less', but I don't know.

Even then, some of the vanities are OVER 2PP and since there isn't another 'free item purchase' above this, I don't see it applying to the higher cost vanities.

Well I clarified that I was purchasing vanities, not items, to the Venture Captain and he said it was legal. So yay, vanity shopping sprees.
