Last week I bought the Pathfinder Beginner Box and as the GM I am preparing the first adventure for my friends. I'm pretty sure they will want to create their own characters instead of using the pre-rolled ones in the box.
I have the french edition so I can't really quote you the rulebook. Here is what I understand : each character gets a fixed amount of gold (175 for fighter, 140 for cleric, 140 for rogue and 70 for wizard (why so little?)) What about their gear ? Do they...
- get a fixed gear based on their class and I somewhat missed it ?
- get a extra gear budget and have to buy their starting gear with it ?
- have to buy their starting gear with their starting gold ?
Maybe i should just copy the pre-rolled fighter equipment if they choose fighter, cleric's one if they choose cleric... ?
I'd like, in order of preference, an answer based on :
- the Beginner Box (in case it's precised in and I missed it)
- the Core Rulebook
- your experience
Searching on google I found here that players have to buy their starting equipment (but i don't have the CRB so i'm not sure that's a good fit for me) with their starting gold but where can they buy it ?
