I’m a little confused about Fame, Reputation, and Factions. Here’s what I think is going on:

We can have Reputation with one or more Factions. Reputation never decreases.

We have Fame which is our total Reputation earned minus any Fame spent on boons. We don’t have separate Fame pools for each faction.

So, my #2001 PC starts her PFS career by spending 0 Fame to become a Grand Archive Champion. She then does two adventures on behalf of the Grand Archive, earning a total of 8 Reputation in that faction and providing 8 Fame to potentially spend.

She spends 2 Fame to get a Wayfinder after her first adventure and 4 Fame to become a Horizon Hunters Champion after her second adventure so she can earn Reputation with them on her next adventure.

At the start of her third adventure, she will have 2 Fame, 8 Reputation with the Grand Archive, and the Horizon Hunters Champion Faction Boon in her Faction boon slot.

Does all of the sound correct?

The Reputation/Fame system for PFS2e is the same as SFS.

So what you have laid out is correct.

However, a couple of things to keep in mind.

1. You can only have 1 Champion boon slot during an adventure.
2. Having multiple factions that you are gaining reputation for will slow you down for getting the capstone.

Thanks, I do understand the only one Champion boon at a time restriction. I realized after my second adventure with this PC that Horizon Hunters was a much better fit for her.

If the character has not been played at second level you can change your free champion and just get rep with HH from the start.

I think that says you can't change where your rep was assigned.

Yes, this was my understanding of this line "Until you play a game in which your character has 12 or more XP, you can freely rebuild your character completely except for Reputation earned and character number." in the section on Rebuilding Your Character under Player Basics (emphasis mine).
