As well as mechanics for introducing new players what considerations should I take for introducing a new player to an existing party?
My example is that I'm I'm running the Pathfinder Beginner Box campaign with some people who have never played before. The party got through the first adventure (Black Fang's Dungeon). I was originally running it to level up independently of XP as the story progressed. However, one of the party has left the country and is getting replaced by another player who has played RPGs before.
I'm planning to bring this new player in with a new character in at level 2 due to balance issues (as discussed in chat).
What considerations do I need to take for this new character in terms of gold and loot?
