This seems completely wrong, but the scenario seems to imply that unless a PC is a Scoured Stars Veteran they receive 0 XP for playing through this special?

Also... um, Fame awards seems insanely convoluted. As a baseline the success conditions section on page 48 says everyone gets 2 fame and 2 reputation with their slotted faction (and specifically doesn't say anything about XP).

So is it 6 (2+4) fame if applying the first benefit from Overcome the Past, or 7 (2+5) if the second? If the boon would otherwise override the fame benefits then it doesn't make sense for the 2 fame to be listed at all.

Unless a boon specifically mentions it is changing the normal scenario rewards, any effects of such a boon are usually in addition to the normal rewards. A sentence to that affect could be helpful for future, similar boons, though.

Ok so there's an "instead" word in the boon itself. Is it instead of the 4 Fame, and/or is it instead of the 2 Reputation:slotted and 2 Fame awarded by the scenario?

Eg

Not a scoured stars veteran: 1 XP, 2 Reputation:slotted, 6 Fame (2 plus boon adds 4)

Scoured Stars Veteran: 3 XP, 5 Reputation:slotted, 5 Fame (boon gives 5 instead of 2)

Or is Scoured Stars Veteran 4 XP 7 Reputation:slotted 7 Fame?

My belief is that it is instead of the 4 extra Fame. It feels weird, but my reading would also end up with the Chronicle granting a total of 4 XP, 7 Fame and 7 Reputation to a Scoured Stars Vet.

Now that we've pointed that out, though, I'm less certain I'm right, and hope Thursty can swing by for a clarification.

Clarifications over XP/Fame rewards are among the most important, especially at a convention with out-of-town players (whereas tracking them down for corrections is especially difficult)

Also, suppose you take the 3 XP (or whatever number it ends up being). Won't this throw off your character's WBL numbers? That extra exp doesn't seem to come with any extra cash as written.

Is this also subject to the "you get the credits for the level your character is, not the tier you played" like #1-99 was?

(Clarification: I haven't got the scenario yet, and I'm running it end of the month, but I'm curious about this. This happened to me in PaizoCon UK, I played a 4 in a tier 5-6, and only got level 4 credit when I slogged through 5-6. There was an issue with players, hence why I got at this table.)

That's because neither the OP or I had written out the full boon. It also includes:

Apply this XP 1 point at a time, each time earning additional credits based on the subtier most appropriate to your level.

One of my GMs is preparing tier 1-2 and 3-4, and noticed that the tier 2 Jinsul Assault Craft has +12 Engineering (2 ranks), but the tier 4 has +10 Engineering (4 ranks). That doesn't seem right.

If you receive the Overcome the Past boon to gain 3 XP, is that in addition to the scenario's normal XP? So 4 XP in total or 3 XP in total?
