Many questions from tags get answers stating something like "have a Session 0", which means "sit down and tell each other what do you expect from the game". Some of them mention the Same Page Tool. But what exactly should I do during that "Session 0"? What should be my plan? What should I not do?

I need advice applying to Pathfinder games in groups of mixed experienced levels, from "I have read the PHB yesterday" to "I have tried D&D the same year it was released", because while the latter know their desires, the former likely don't.

As I can get it from the questions here, lots of the problems may arise, and I would like to shut them down in advance.

  • \$\begingroup\$ See rpg.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/7363/…. A "good" Session 0 is in the eye of the beholder, you don't provide enough specific goals for us to say. "New and experienced" explains the context a little, but not the goals, and "head off problems" is super broad. \$\endgroup\$ – mxyzplk Aug 5 '17 at 0:45

    \$\begingroup\$ I have some thoughts on this. Maybe we could chatroom about it? \$\endgroup\$ – Dan B Aug 5 '17 at 2:05
