I am a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University and am pitching a project that aims to create an app or game aid that makes it easier for new players to get into the game. Here is my problem statement:
Enable Pathfinder RPG to be intuitive and easy to learn for beginners using mobile devices.
My team and I are doing research in the space and are wondering what players and GM's already use to help new players learn to play the game. As a veteran player, I am aware of a few tools that make the game much easier to play including:
1. Beginner's Box, Bash Scenarios and transition to full core rules.
2. Auto Fill Character Sheets like the Mod Neceros PDF.
3. Hero Lab
4. D20PFSRD.com and Official Pathfinder Rules Reference
5. Pathfinder Wiki
What other tools do you use to teach players how to play?
These tools can be physical or digital tools. They can even be techniques you've picked up that have proven to be effective for new players to learn. I'm really looking for any and all information on the subject to increase my awareness of the current solutions and allow for better improvement in the space.
Are there any tools available for assisting players in learning how to role-play?
Thank you for your time, and if there is a thread that already explains this topic, please point it out.
