PF2E Downtime Earned Income Question.


GM Discussion

Can you attempt a "Earn Encome" Activity after a Quest (2 days downtime) or can it only be after a Scenario or higher? Example is that I will be running PFS2E Scenario 1-1A The Sandstone Secret. Can player attempt a Earn Encome after the Quest?

Addition to that, can they continue the Earn Encome activity for the 2 days downtime (basically earning twice as much). This also carries over to Scenarios, can they do the Earn Income Activity for the full 8 days (Earning 8 times as much if no other activity is performed)?

Thank you

Yes

One check’s result carries for the entirety of downtime to a max of 8.

You fail your check after a scenario, you get 8 times that value.
You make your check after a quest, you get 2 times that value.

... except that the "Earn income" rules say you have to spend 4 days before you can make a roll, and nothing in the Guide currently removes that restriction. Hence the confusion.

I hope Blake's Tiger's interpretation is what we go with, but right now it's unclear.

You are mistaking Earn an Income with Crafting.

Earn an Income is "after the first day of work" (CRB p. 237).
Craft an Item takes 4 days before the roll (CRB p. 244).
