Pathfinder RPG resources for a beginner
My girlfriend has expressed great interest in "D&D" though I suggested Pathfinder as from what I have been told from friends and read around the net, it's basically the same but better ruleset, and it seems very popular. Sooo....
I ordered in the big hardcover Core Rulebook off Amazon, and am picking up the Beginners Box from my local shop. We are starting from scratch, we have no resources (Except a ton of mini's from Talisman I guess?). My question is, what are some good resources for someone who doesn't have any of the stuff and is totally new? Things like maybe some free ( or paid.) low level module's or mini (the cardboard pawns are my preference since they are cheap/easy for NPC's.) character gen software? Good web sites? Must-have supplies or items for regular play? We are going to be a group but all of us are basically new to this. I will be DMing mostly since I love to write so once I learn it a bit i expect that i'll be writing a few adventure modules myself, but I am not above buying some official ones or whatever if they are a good buy.
Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated !
