Of Stone and Shadow
Ok a few things to keep in mind.
For character creation, I allow anything in the 3.x books by Wizards and the Pathfinder specific books. I highly recommend going with Pathfinder…I think it’s more balanced and superior in almost every way to 3.×. Third party 3.x books however have a tendency to be more broken and I want to see anythng out of those first before you spend time on it.
4d6 7 times. drop the lowest die on each roll, and reroll the first 1s you roll on that initial roll. Drop the lowest score, arrange to taste. You should have several high attributes, almost no attributes that are low, and a better than average chance for 17s and 18s. You shouldn’t need to worry about a dump stat. Why am I so generous with attributes? I answered that in a post on the forum, but the short answer is: I like PCs to be heroic, and feel like gimping a PC in 3.x/Pathfinder is tantamount to a death sentence.
Max HPs at first level. For HP rolls as you level, I allow you to roll twice and take the better roll. As to why, please see above.
All I can think of for now.
Victory is but a prelude for the next battle.
