Rules Questions
We'll keep this thread in place throughout the game, to settle things as they come up.  Personally, I have more questions during character creation than at any other time, so we'll get this up and running now.  Fire away!

ETA: Also, check out the Game Links tab up above for some helpful references.

With regards to starting gear: I know they've all got specified costs (there are lovely little tables for that). Do we deduct that from our initial starting gold? For example, if my starting clothing and weaponry adds up to 55 gp, do I begin the game with 945 gp and all my gear?

Also! Will we be using traits during character creation, and if so, how many?

Fourth Question (I am a woman of many questions): "Whenever a character gains a level in his favored class, he receives either + 1 hit point or + 1 skill rank."

So, right now I've got a lvl 2 Monk, which is my favored class (I don't have any others). At level 1 I automatically get my 8 HP. At level 2 I rolled a 2 on my d8 for a total of 10 HP. Do I add an additional +1 for leveling in my favored class? (I'd rather have the HP than the skills atm)

I'll just answer all these at once:

1) You do deduct equipment from starting gold! Except you get one of the basic outfits (artisan's/explorer's/vestments/etc.) for free. (Clothes for everyone, yay.)

2)We're going to start a few years back from where Golarion's official timeline is currently; call it 4713 AR.

3)I do love traits! Sure; you may have two.

4)You are correct, but I'm going to go ahead and say that if your HP roll is lower than 3, just take 3. (So, with your favored class +1, that's 4 total.)

I'm guessing the obvious thing would be to 'Find the Pathfinder Wiki' but have you got any particular suggestions for what I should read over so I should hopefully sort of know what I'm doing?

Oooh, go check out the Game Links tab in the bar at top! I put a bunch of my favorite resources in there for you guys to peruse at will.

Another (minor) question about (minor) details:

So, I'm looking at the various adventuring kits (because they're cheaper, etc.) and a handful of them mention an iron pot. Now, the kit I've picked does not come with an iron pot, but I would like to have one, because it seems useful.

Problem is, I can't find any such item, independent of a kit, anywhere. Is it just a cauldron?

I always figured it's smaller than a cauldron, so you can lug it around with you more easily. Maybe around the size of a Dutch oven?

Of course, if you'd prefer a cauldron, you're welcome to it! Non-magical items are pretty malleable in that regard.  The bigger it is, though, the heavier it's going to be.

Right on. Like, somewhere between half and a quarter cauldron then. Next question!

Have chosen Monk's Outfit as basic outfit. It comes with sandals as footwear? On the basis of 'this seems like a silly footwear choice for the region,' I would like to substitute boots of equal quality?

Do I buy them... or is it just a straight substitute?
