PFS 2e GM Chronicle Sheet and Boon awards

I know the rule was that GM could select any of the boons on their sheet, unless explicitly called out as not available to the GM. I was wondering if this was still the case in 2e.

I would say "yes" from what I've seen for boons on chronicle sheets so far.

I think you're going to see this played out one of two ways:

1) GM chooses which boons they get (particularly in scenarios where you get either boon a or b, depending on certain outcomes)

2) GM gets the same boons the players got, which could potentially "punish" the GM for "negative" boons

I agree with Christian and abide by option 1 when I GM.

I don't think that they'll EVER do this. It gives the GM a MASSIVE incentive to cheat (or, if you prefer, to subconsciously alter things).

It was (I believe) NEVER done in PFS1 for exactly that reason

I agree. Even if the party gets TPKd, you still get full gold, xp, & PP and choice of boon (if relevant) for GMing.

For sure -- you wouldn't want players to ever miss anything in cases like that.
