Do new, 1st level characters (such as the very first characters created in the game) start with any gold?
The rules on page 42 would seem to be pretty clear:
In addition, a newly created character receives an amount of gold equal to 15x(L+1), where L is their starting level.
So it would seem that a new, 1st level character would start with 30 gold.
However, that sentence is in the middle of a paragraph that talks about starting a character at a higher level, so it is possible that the rule only applies if you are creating a higher level character.
I'm guessing that new 1st level characters do start with 30 gold, but there is just enough ambiguity that I would love to have it confirmed.
The first characters your group plays at the beginning of the campaign receive 30 gold worth of equipment (so they have to spend this gold to buy things, they cannot save it for later, if I remember well).
There is a photo in the Images sections,showing some items
that are available for purchase at the beginning of the game.
Looking at the prices(and these are basic items) i believe
that this rule applies to all newly created characters,
regardless of their level.
And if i am reading the rules correctly,there is no treasury
or gold shared among players.
you start with 30 gold and you can save part of them, but you cannot share item or gold with other PC
