Prestige Points and Vanities in 2E

How useful are vanities in general and should/would they be included in 2E?

The Additional Resources page does not mention vanities so I have never tried purchasing any using prestige points for my PFS characters but some of them look nice especially the ones for memberships to specific groups.

Flavor wise I think spending Prestige to gain access to training in other classes or entry to Prestige classes makes sense. Like calling in a favor.

I like vanities because they add some flavor or background, and a litle bonus, to my PCs. I'm sure later down the road they will release something like the PFS Field Guide for 2e. Well, I hope they do.

It's going to sound silly, but I hope they don't gate it like that, and instead make it available like Starfinder.

To lock it to a book that has a limited print run breeds elitism.

Vanities on chronicle sheets are awesome. I hope to see vanities on chronicles that are available to anyone that played the scenario -not just the faction specific ones.

In fact, get rid of the 'always available for purchase items' to make space for a vanity!

(I know. Wishful thinking.)

Vanity boons would be fun.

Sadly if they use the (imho terrible) Boon Slotting system from SFS then you're limiting what vanities can be used concurrently.

No more could you have a noble title, a manor house, a seneschal & a merchant caravan all at the same time (as one of my characters does).

Of course you could make them slotless, but then if you have to make lots of things slotless for them so be able to compare well with PFS1, what is the point of slottable boons?
