Not sure why it's even a question as to whether or not learning 1 thing is easier than learning 2 things at once. It's an obvious answer. Not everyone is a savant. :P
I'm not sure I follow. What are you selecting?
Here's what I did:
Selected American English
Clicked "A Whole Party"
Checkmarked all the Core Rulebook Classes
Selected both "Additional Options"
What are some examples of situations that you as the GM would make a roll for the player(s)?
I remember reading somewhere that the GM will make checks for players sometimes. Such as stealth, perception, etc. I also remember not being able to find anything that would expand on these type of situations and how they would work. Do you ask the player what bonuses they have for the check? Should I have copies of everyone's character sheets?
I really want to thank Paizo for this awesome Beginner's Box package. Our group started playing back in March, we're all 21-27 years old and none of us have ever played a tabletop RPG of any kind. In fact half of our players are wives, as we have 4 couples that we cycle in for games.
The Beginner's Box books are really well done visually. There's enough color and artwork to really get you in the right mindset and not overload your brain with text. I've now bought the Core/GM/Beastiary combo just to get myself ready for moving to the full game and, while I love reading them and very excited to play, I miss the flow and organization of the Beginner Box books. I know that's a tough nut to crack but there ya go. You guys are doing awesome work.
And I really love seeing the amount of input and feedback that the Paizo team delivers straight to these message boards. I really like that you are involved directly with the community beyond generic and sterile sounding public announcements.
After almost a month of waiting, my first ever tabletop RPG experience is finally happening this Sunday with the Beginner's Box and a group of friends.
None of us have ever played Pathfinder before. I'm going to be DMing the game and I have prepared as much as I think I can without having ever played a single game.
I have music, I have artwork to display on a computer screen, and I have extra sets of die.
I want to do one final thing to prepare...
Right before I begin the game and read the first paragraph that sets up the arrival at the cave, I want to read a short introduction to Golarion. Something that's just like 2-4 paragraphs that sets up the world. Inhabitants, major gods, some of the cultures etc.
This is something I can come up with myself using the wiki if need be, but I figured I'd ask if something like this already existed somewhere. Thanks for any inputs!
Here's a little follow-up question then:
If we purchase the PDF version, do we get free access to download the latest printing of a book in the PDF format? I have already purchased the PDF of the core rulebook but when the 6th printing comes out, do I have to rely on the errata or will I be able to just redownload the 6th printing from my downloads?
