PF2 TRD Part 10 Renown

Pathfinder 2 – TRAP Design

Part 10 – Using Renown

Here is a list of all the ways a character in my Thassilonian Resurgence Adventure Path (TRAP) can spend their renown within the Pathfinder Society. This is set at year one of the storyline, so expect it to change over the course of the ten game years.

What is Renown, and how is it being represented in game?

Renown is a currency with a group, society or organisation that will grant you favours based on what you have done for them in the storyline.

In the game I have allocated badge’s from the factions to represent individual achievements. Once they obtain their own wayfinder, they will see the ongoing method of tracking their renown with each faction. I am making a pathfinders wayfinder a crucial aspect of their development and advancement.

Using Renown with an Organisation or Faction

Here I am showcasing the planned uses for renown, and I will later build each into their own section which will be updated over time.

Pathfinder Society Organisation

[See Pathfinder Society for current options]

Ranks in the society:

  • Aspirant
  • Trainee
  • Field Operative (+1 Fame)
  • Field Lieutenant (+5 Fame)
  • Field Captain (+10 Fame)
  • Venture-Lieutenant (+15 Fame)
  • Venture-Captain (+20 Fame)
  • Faction Leader (+25 Fame)
  • True Power of the Society (no fame)

As a member of the pathfinder society you can spent prestige in these ways:

  • One Faction badge – You need to use the faction badge associated with the faction you wish to seek as your ongoing sponsor in the society. If you do not have the faction badge for the one you wish to join you can instead use three other faction badges in its place.
  • Three Faction badges – seeking a faction you don’t have the badge for as your ongoing sponsor in the society.
  • 5+ renown Gain a promotion and greater access, each promotion cost 5 more than the last promotion. Faction Leader and True Power cannot be bought.
  • (Special) Gain access to one spell: This will be at least twice per spell level, with a x4 for uncommon or a x8 for rare spells.
  • (Special) Language training (reduced depending on faction standing) Common language is 8 pts, Uncommon 16 pts, half of that if your part of the faction teaching it.
  • (Special) Transportation: Double the normal travel costs unless your part of the Qadira Faction in which case it is half the normal cost.
  • (Special) Purchase of goods normally restricted or illegal: Starts at 4 times the normal cost unless your with the Sczarni faction, in that case it is only twice the normal cost.
  • (Special) Access to hidden knowledge and rare books: This is a case by case basis. Each faction can have different books available.

Using Renown with a Faction

Andoran Faction

[See Andoran Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Andoran Faction:

  • Aldori Duelist (lowg35) (Fame +10)
  • Captain of the Society (Fame +20)
  • Eagle Knight (Fame +10)
  • Firebrand Braggart (lopg74) (Fame +10)
  • Gray Corsair (Fame +20)
  • Knighthood (Fame +20)
  • Tiller (Fame +10)

Pathfinders with allegiances to the Andoran faction often perform acts of diplomacy, sabotage, and proselytizing while carrying out their primary objectives for the Decemvirate. Whether providing moral support to the downtrodden, delivering messages to agents deep undercover in distant lands, or acting as a thorn in the side of slavers throughout the region, an Andoran Faction operative improves his reputation by spreading Andoren ideals wherever he goes. A member of this faction should be willing to bend the rules of tyrannical law in order to plant the seed of liberty, even when doing so requires employing questionable techniques.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language Training: in Celestial, Dwarven and Skald
  • 2+ pts – New Item: You gain a new item (cost below).

Cheliax Faction

[See Cheliax Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Cheliax Faction:

  • Hellknight (locg84) (Fame +20)
  • Hellknight Armiger (lowg107 and locg80) (Fame +10)
  • Hellknight Signifier (locg85) (Fame +10)

Cheliax faction Pathfinders tend to win the paracountess’s favor by delivering messages of intimidation to her political enemies, retrieving arcane or extraplanar relics to aid in further mastery of devil-kind, and promoting the establishment of order, tyranny, and Chelish dominance throughout the Inner Sea region. Their missions for the faction often put them at odds with the freedom fighters of Andoran and the lazy representatives of foppish Taldor. A member of this faction should be willing to do whatever is necessary to follow orders, establish the rule of law, and forward the interests of House Thrune, even when doing so may result in the suffering of those unable to avoid being trampled by the march of progress.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language training: in Abyssal, Aklo, and Infernal
  • 1+ pts – New Item: You gain a new item (cost below).

  • Scrollmaster (locg113) (Fame +10)
  • Spellmaster (locg114) (Fame +10)
  • Swordmaster (locg116) (Fame +10)
Grand Lodge Faction
Pathfinder Grand Lodge Faction

Pathfinders loyal first and foremost to the Grand Lodge and the Decemvirate find themselves well rewarded for carrying out the will of the Ten no matter where it takes them or what the task. Those Pathfinders who put the wellbeing of the Society above their own and who embody the values of exploration, cooperation, and accountability rise quickly in the ranks of the Grand Lodge. Often, the acquisition of lost knowledge or forgotten treasures directly benefits the discovering Pathfinder; thus, those dedicated to the Decemvirate take their orders as advice on how to maximise their own success.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language training: in Elven, Hallit, Kelish
  • 2 pts – Bonding a Wayfinder: This makes the wayfinder your key to the pathfinder society. In your hands you have access to any pathfinder lodge and can use it to display your standing within the various societies. You can be bonded to only one wayfinder at a time. You can trade in an existing wayfinder to reduce the cost, and if already bonded they will transfer the bond.

Lantern Lodge Faction

[See Lantern Lodge Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Lantern Lodge Faction:

  • Diplomat of Tian (Fame +20)
  • Honorific of Tian (Fame +5)
  • Master of Tian (Fame +20)
  • Student of Perfection (lowg83) (Fame +5)

While Lantern Lodge Pathfinders participate in normal missions throughout the Inner Sea region—seemingly without ties to Tian Xia at all—Venture-Captain Li frequently finds tasks for them to carry out while engaging in other activities. These include diplomatic missions to allies of her cause throughout the Inner Sea region, retrieval of long-lost Tian artifacts she hopes to see return to Goka for study or display, or the elimination of enemies who hamper the Lantern Lodge’s efforts in one way or another. Lantern Lodge Pathfinders are Pathfinders first and foremost, but Amara Li rewards them significantly for dedication to her and her lodge while they carry out the will of the Ten.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language Training: in Elven and Tien
  • 2 pts – Home Runegate: Access to your background teleport runes via your own Wayfinder

Osirion Faction

[See Osirion Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Osirian Faction:

  • Halcyon Speaker (locg104) (Fame +10)
  • Living Monolith (lowg59) (Fame +5)
  • Magaambyan Attendant (locg101) (Fame +5)
  • Magic Warrior (lowg95) (Fame +5)
  • The Constant (Fame +20)
  • Risen Guard (Fame +10)

The most valuable asset to the Osirion faction is knowledge, and Pathfinders willing and able to procure ancient relics for study, copy secret documents, and decipher long-dead languages find themselves well rewarded for carrying out Amenopheus’s requests. Many of the faction’s goals involve delving into haunted, cursed crypts, and Pathfinders with resistances or dominance over the undead are particularly useful.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language Training: in Draconic, Necril, Osiriani, Sylvan and the elemental languages Aquan, Auran, Ignan and Terran.

Qadira Faction

[See Qadira Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Qadira Faction:

  • Expert Entrepreneur (Fame +5)
  • Master of Trade (Fame +10)
  • Pasha (Fame +20)
  • Trade Prince (Fame +10)
  • Validated Appraiser (Fame +1)

There are countless ways to earn a fortune, and the Qadira faction rewards Pathfinders for any number of them. Common methods of moving up within the organisation include negotiating trade agreements, spying on competitors, using travel as an opportunity to scout out new markets or resources, or even smuggling goods in or out of unfriendly ports as part of faction members’ everyday adventuring for the Pathfinder Society. Not all of Qadira’s dealings are legal or necessarily honourable, however, and more than one agent with a strong moral compass has found himself at odds with the faction when asked to support the trading of slaves or subvert local or regional authorities.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language training: in Halfling, Kelish, and Vudrani

Sczarni Faction

[See Sczarni Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Sczarni Faction:

  • Runescarred (lowg119) (Fame +5)

Pathfinders working in tandem with the Sczarni often earn reputations within the insular organisation by delivering or retrieving messages from other operatives in the field, transporting stolen goods while on otherwise standard Pathfinder business, and sometimes stealing from or conning innocents along the way. Few Sczarni admit they belong to the loose affiliation, and even fewer Pathfinders boast of their association with the ill-reputed crooks. While Pathfinder agents who can operate without catching the notice of their friends and allies are a great asset to the Sczarni, conversely, some Sczarni prefer to be seen in the company of acclaimed and well respected adventurers such as ostentatious Pathfinders, hoping the latter group’s more positive reputation will rub off on their own oft-maligned brethren. But sometimes more virtuous Pathfinders are simply sent on Sczarni missions to allow the criminals to keep good company while doing something less than honourable behind the Pathfinders’ backs.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language Training: in Gnome, Shoanti and Varisian
  • 1+ pts – New Spell: Access to a new spell. (Cost below)

  • 40 pts – Front: The sczarni help you set up a business which they use as a front for their activities earning you additional income based on the size of the settlement.
Shadow Lodge Faction

[See Shadow Lodge Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Shadow Lodge Faction:

  • Red Mantis Assassin (lowg71) (Fame +5)

Shadow Lodge missions often involve gathering evidence of slights against the average Pathfinder from high-ranking members like venture-captains and the Ten; assisting former agents in recovering from injuries, curses, or maladies suffered while serving as the Decemvirate’s pawns; or eliminating openly oppositional Pathfinders who claim allegiance to the Shadow Lodge and damage the organisation’s reputation. Shadow Lodge operatives who can operate without damaging the tenuous peace with the Decemvirate are quite valued.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language Training: in Jotun, Necril, Shadowtongue, Undercommon.
  • 2+ pts – Barbarian Multiclass Training (core 221)
  • 2+ pts – Cleric Multiclass Training (core 224)

Silver Crusade Faction

[See Silver Crusade Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Silver Crusade Faction:

  • Knight Reclaimant (locg95) (Fame +10)
  • Knight Vigilant (locg94) (Fame +10)
  • Lastwall Sentry (lowg47) (Fame +5)
  • Silver Crusader (Fame +20)

Just as there are countless interpretations of what doing good entails, there are an equal number of variations in how the Shining Crusade asks its agents to spread its message throughout Golarion with each mission. Whether delivering much-needed medicine to victims of a rampant plague, ridding an oppressed village of a tyrannical local villain, or aiding an established organisation of like-minded humanitarians like the Cult of the Dawnflower, the Knights of Ozem, or the Mendev Crusaders, agents who take every opportunity during the course of their normal Pathfinder duties to leave the indelible mark of good upon the world are valued, and they tend to move up swiftly among the inner ranks of the Shining Crusade.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language Training: in Gnoll, Goblin, Mwangi and Orc.
  • 1+ pts – New Item: You gain a new item (cost below).

Taldor Faction

[See Taldor Faction for current options]

Special Ranks in the Taldor Faction:

  • Lion Blade (lowg131)
  • Noble Title (Fame +10)
  • Ulfen Guard (Fame +10)

While her predecessor often sent Pathfinders on missions to recover opulent art to decorate his many palaces and manors, Lady Gloriana knows that Taldor must reclaim its position as the bastion of humanity through constant vigilance. Pathfinders in her employ should be skilled at the arts of deception, misdirection, and stealth, while also knowing how to navigate Absalom’s complex aristocratic landscape. Those with the ability to speak honeyed words to a rival noble while simultaneously pilfering damning documents from his satchel will go far.

This faction provides these other options. To take anything here you need to be a member of this faction. If you did not seek them as your sponsor, and become accepted then you might have to undertake a quest to do so.

  • (Special) Language Training: in Taldane (common)
  • 2+ pts – Barbarian Multiclass Training (core 221)
  • 2+ pts – Bard Multiclass Training (core 222)

I am a long term gamer, I run 6 RPG's a fortnight, host board game, card game and LANs each about once a quarter and have an addiction to buying more games. Games I am currently running are Pathfinder (1st and 2nd Edition) and Dungeons and Dragons (5th Edition).

One reply on “PF2 TRD Part 10 Renown”

I both love you, and hate you right now….

Grand lodge is still the way Sharpe would want to go….

But the only other Archetype class that interests him is runescarred… and you gave it to the *gods-damned Scarzni mobsters*……😱💣🔪

Am still not clear on how renown is earned, and what the difference is between *Renown *vs.*Fame*. But I’m sure we’ll get it 😀

Great mechanics, and looking forward tonworking with them 🙂

Cheers Martin!
