Share the Wealth Boon Question


Pathfinder Society

Sovereign Court ** ⦵⦵

I've got a quick question about the Share the Wealth (Equipment) Boon that allows one of your characters to gain access to another characters items that were earned on a different Chronicle sheet.

The boon specifically mentions purchasing non-intelligent items but I was wondering about items that the first character earned on the Shared Chronicle sheet that are awarded for free and don't have a cost associated with them. Could you purchase those items for 0gp or even just transfer the item from one PC to the other permanently.

Specifically items like the Sihedron Shards from the Shattered Star AP or the Crystals from the Bonekeep series without going into to much further detail to avoid spoilers.

Thanks

"In your generosity, you have decided to share your access to rare or unusual items with another Pathfinder agent. To apply this boon, choose a Chronicle sheet that you have applied to one of your characters, then choose one of your other characters. This second character gains access to purchase all non-intelligent items that the first character earned on that Chronicle sheet, as long as the second character's level is not lower than the minimum level of the Subtier that grants access to the item. As the character gains levels, she may gain access to more items.

For exmaple, if the first character played Subtier 8–9 in a tier 5–9 scenario and grants item access from that Chronicle sheet to a 5th-level character, the second character may purchase items found in Subtier 5–6, When the second character reaches 8th level, she may also purchase items from Subtier 8–9.

Record the character numbers of both characters below, as well as the name of the adventure for which you are sharing item access. Be sure you have access to either the original Chronicle sheet with the shared items or a copy of it when you play the second character.

Giving Character: ___________________________
Receiving Character: _________________________
Shared Chronicle Sheet's Adventure Name: _____________________________________"

If the items are available for purchase in one of the Subtier lists at the bottom of the Chronicle, then they're valid for purchase with this Boon.

Both of your examples would not qualify.


Can you use this boon for a Ocher Rhomboid Ioun Stone? The chronicle lists it as a reward alongside the other items you can purchase, but aquiring it is wierd and causes an alignment shift but does not (directly) cost money.


*bump*

Should I post elsewhere?

" This second character gains access to purchase all non-intelligent items that the first character earned on that Chronicle sheet, as long as the second character's level is not lower than the minimum level of the Subtier that grants access to the item."

Like the original posters two examples, yours would not qualify either. While the boon represents your character having an access to an item, it's actually a boon and not something you can purchase. Checking the chronicle sheet, it does does Not list it alongside the other items you can purchase - the chronicle lists it separately.


But it does list it along side the other items. There is a box for lower tier, a box for upper tier, and a box for all tiers wherin the item is put. That is exactly why I'm not certain. It IS listed like any other item (though not purchased with money), but it is written like a bood and not like a normal item.

But your opinion is that it is a boon and not an item and I value that opinion. I'm going to ask around elsewhere though to see what other arguments I can drum up on either side only because, as I noted, it is written like a boon but listed like an item.

Frankly I suspect you are right since it seems too good to be true if it were available via the share the wealth bood.

I'm not sure what you mean by "it does list it along side other items".
The item is listed in bold, separate from the other items, while other items are cursive, listed with a price at which you can buy them. If you play the adventure at low subtier, you get the boon and access to the items on the low subtier list. If you play it on the high subtier, you get the boon, and access to the items on the high subtier And low subtier (unless they replace each other). If it is an item like you'd want, it would be listed in the same place as all other low subtier items.

When you play high tier, you get access to both high and low subtier items unless they specifically replace each other. If you compare this chronicle sheet to other sheets from the same year, you'll notice that they all do it like that.

If you want that ioun stone for your other character, you'll need to either use a boon or a GM star to replay the adventure, or GM it yourself.

Also, the item is not available for purchase at all. It doesn't have a price. IF you look at OP's question and the answer it receveid, this is literally the same situation.

If you have played 4-6 The Green Market Gamble, it's chronicle sheet has a good example on what it would look like if the item was purchaseable.
(There's a boon at bold on the top, tier 5-6 items separate with an unique item listed in cursive, price, and buy limit, then tier 8-9 items with no mention of the unique item Since you already have access to it in the low tier list, and finally the item's stats below those).

The chronicle is formatted oddly, so some confusion is understandable. The item is listed under All Subtiers. That is an appropriate place for the Share the Wealth boon (see the however below). On a more typical chronicle, the boon would be listed above the section listing what items you gain access to. Here, they chose to put it in the section of items you gain access to.

However, as was pointed out, there’s no price listed on the chronicle, and the item is not able to be purchased. That means the Share the Wealth boon likely doesn’t work for it.

To make things even more confusing, there is a price for the item listed in the scenario, but it’s never made available for purchase to the characters. It can only be acquired other ways.
