In previous Season Guides, there were restrictions on what a character could purchase:

ALWAYS AVAILABLE ITEMS

You may always purchase the following items or equipment as long as you’re in an appropriate settlement (see above).

All equipment listed in the Starfinder Core Rulebook with an item level equal to your character level + 1.

All equipment listed in sanctioned Starfinder content with an item level equal to your character.

Any equipment listed on your character’s Chronicle Sheets with an item level equal to your character level + 2.

All items and services purchased with Fame.

My question is simple, because I spent nearly a day trying to find it on the brand new fancy swanky OrgPlay Site's Starfinder Guide and I couldn't find it.

Where are the limits for purchasing posted on the new super-duper online Guide?

Thank you very much for your time in advance!

Hey Wei Ji! We got this figured out in Discord, but now that I see you asking here, I'm posting my response here, too, for posterity.

At least as of this writing (the Season 4 guide, in 2021), it's in Player Basics, right near the top:

The rules haven't changed, though, so all of the above is still true.

Thank you very much.

For some reason, when I pulled down the Guide from the drop-down list, it only went to 'new player character creation, and that was less than helpful.

As we sort of kludged via your link, if one uses the 'full page' version it's less of an issue, but still very clunky and difficult.

Is there any way to get 'Purchases' highlighted with a keyword or something so it doesn't loop back to the starting character creation page in the 'tabbed' version?

Or, alternatively, could we please get an easier to use interface because currently it's less than helpful?

I dread running tables online or in-person where half my table didn't look as hard as I tried and bring illegally purchased items -- that would be a very unfriendly and awkward moment to try and handle diplomatically.
