 In the City of Magnimar there are a large number of factions, some working alongside each other, some working against each other. Making a name for yourself will probably involve currying favour with some of these factions in order to gain access to resources, help and fame. In the City of Magnimar there are a large number of factions, some working alongside each other, some working against each other.

 There are a number of sets of rules for //Reputation// and //Fame// in Pathfinder, which seem to have changed over time. I'm using a slightly modified amalgamation of those in //Pathfinder Chronicles: Faction Guide//, and //Ultimate Campaign//, and applying them to each faction. There are a number of sets of rules for //Reputation// and //Fame// in Pathfinder, which seem to have changed over time.

 +Note that a PC may begin play as a member of, or allied with, a particular Faction. This doesn't grant them any special position on the //Reputation// track for that Faction - they still begin with a //Reputation// of zero. They are untrusted newcomers who have yet to prove themselves. However, it may provide greater opportunity to begin proving yourself early on.
 +
 +Who many of the Factions are is deliberately left undefined at this point, but some of them will be relatively obvious (the //Pathfinder Society//, //Aspis Consortium// and major organised religions in Magnimar are probably good candidates).

 +Information on the factions which has been revealed during plan can be found in these pages.

 A character's standing with each faction is mechanically represented by their //Reputation// score. Whenever you perform a service for a faction (providing them with information, completing a mission, etc) then you will gain 1 or more points of Reputation. A character's standing with each faction is mechanically represented by their //Reputation// score.

 As your //Reputation// increases, so you will unlock new benefits that you can take advantage of. These may be a skill bonus when dealing with members of the faction, the option to take prestige classes, opportunities to obtain equipment or access to resources, or special one off benefits unique to that faction. Some of these will have a PP cost associated with them. As your //Reputation// increases, so you will unlock new benefits that you can take advantage of.

 There is no limit to the number of times you can raise an ability score in this way except for the cap of 18, and it does not affect inherent bonuses or raises due to level. There is no limit to the number of times you can raise an ability score in this way except for the cap of 18, and it does not affect inherent bonuses or raises due to level.

 +=== Circumstance Bonuses ===

 +Many benefits grant //circumstance// bonuses to skill checks in certain situations. Circumstance bonuses stack with each other unless they come from the same source. All bonuses from a particular faction count as the same source, so they won't stack with each other.

 +Circumstance bonuses granted by different factions will stack with each other.
