Post Are Boon Hints Allowed?

I've noticed that sometimes a chronicle sheet allows an interesting reward to players who completed the adventure. Is it allowed to know what these boons are in advance?

Could releasing information about the scenario's boon be used as "advertising" to get people to sign up?

For example, I have noticed that a variety of races in the ARG are allowed if you have a specific boon that permits it; otherwise they are not allowed. I am interested in trying out playing a Wayang, and since I don't get to play every week I'd like to have scenarios to look out for that might give me that one.

They're allowed, but kind of frowned upon; some members of the community view them as spoilers. The information is out there if you go looking for it - worse comes to worst, you can just get your hands on a copy of the scenario and look at the chronicle. If I'm not mistaken, there's a thread somewhere on the main forums where a PFS member has put together a Google Doc of all the boons from all the scenarios.

With respect to your race boon question in particular, there are currently no race boons tied to scenario chronicles in particular. Race boons are won at larger conventions only at the moment, so if you want one you have two options:

1) Go to a convention and win one.

2) Find someone who won one at a convention and convince them to give it to you somehow. 🙂

While I haven't seen them yet, there will more than likely be race boons given out at both Gryphcon and Spellstorm this year to a few attendees.

Some scenarios actually mention a boon in their blurb. For example, Rats of Round Mountain mentions in the synopsis that there is a special boon for playing both scenarios in a row.

Since we're on the subject, I played part 3 of "Quest for Perfection" last week, which grants a boon for completing all three segments of the module. Is the boon for that specific character only? I ask because the boon (allows an axe beak as a companion) is pretty class-specific.

Its for the specific character that played the module.

Have to GM it if you really want it for a particular character.
