Open and Restricted

Not all source material (as you probably noticed from character creation) is permitted to base characters in the Sundering of Vaul. Restricted Races, Classes, Magic Items, Spells, and so on can be acquired using a cert if you can get one, but are otherwise not available. Restricted material can (and will) occasionally be thrown against the party – an adventure to track down a mad alchemist will probably involve an Alchemist from the APG… and is likely to have an alchemist cert in there somewhere as well. Be on the lookout for restricted material you want your character to have access to.

- The trade goods, weapons (Small, Medium, or Large), armor, and goods and services sections of Chapter 6: Equipment in the Pathfinder Core Rulebook

At the conclusion of every adventure, whether successful or disastrous, each player will update their character log to reflect new experience, gold, and treasure, as well as any other effect of the adventure, positive or negative. They will also receive certificates for any rewards gained. These certificates will be tracked electronically, but it is best to keep them with your character for easy reference. A certificate (cert) entitles your character to a special option. If, for example, the party finds a ring with unusual magical properties it will appear on a cert. One character from the table will keep this cert, and will thereafter have the ring. Other certs, such as the favor of a noble house, might apply to each character that participated in the adventure. Certs have the following characteristics:

Salable: A salable cert can be sold or traded to other players in any mutually agreeable manner. Example: A pair of magical boots of speed
Transferable: A transferable cert can be given away or destroyed, but does not have any value, and the owner cannot be remunerated for this sort of thing. Example: A communicable disease
Copyable: A copyable cert can be copied, and the resulting certs will either be transferable
or salable. Example: A secret
Permanent:A Permanent cert cannot be sold, given away, or gotten rid of at all, unless the
cert itself describes a specific method or requirement to do so. Example: The
Mummy’s Curse
Starting:Starting certs are not used by the character that gets them, they are instead owned
by the player. When you start a new character, you may apply up to 2 starting certs. These allow access to options not usually available to starting characters. Example: Access to the Alchemist class, or to create a Centaur character.
