Okay, a couple of people showed some interest. I'm gonna go ahead and post character creation stuff.
1. Roll up some abilities (stats). Take 4d6 (four six-sided dice), roll them, and add up the top three. This will generate numbers ranging from 3-18. If you roll trash, throw it out and start anew. It's fine by me. I do it all the time in character creation.
2. Pick a race. Here's a handy list of legal PC (Player Character) races and some background:
Human: The most common race. All Imperials are humans (or at least appear to be humans...). They are extremely versatile.
Dwarf: A stout race inhabiting the Highlands of Rekhor. They are known for their belligerent yet kindhearted nature. Many a brawl will result in the Dwarven combatants becoming best friends.
Elf: A scholarly race known for their love of knowledge. Many an Elven archer has served in the rebellions against the Empire. Nowadays, they tend to keep to themselves in the Swarthos Forest.
Halfling: A brave race living amongst the hills. Not much is seen of these folk, but the lucky spectator might notice one scurrying about.
Gnome: A clever, industrious race known for its technology. Gnome airships are seen now and then. They are close cousins of the Dwarves.
There are also Goblins, Aasimar, Tieflings, Half-Elves, Half-Orcs, and Kobolds. Let me know if you want info on one of these.
3. Choose a class. Here's a list:
Just check SRD enties on the d20hypertext online SRD for skills and such. Let me know when you've completed these steps. Also, just check the SRD for racial stuff.
