You may record your character information however you like. Send it to me via email when you are finished, and I will import everything into Fantasy Grounds so that we will be ready to begin.
Step 1: Choose your Race and Background
The first thing you should do is decide what race you would like to play. Next, come up with a background story and personality for your character.
Step 2: Assign your Primary Attributes
Each character receives 25 points to spend on increasing his basic attributes. All attributes start at a base of 10. A character can increase an individual score by spending some of his points. Likewise, he can gain more points to spend on other scores by decreasing one or more of his ability scores. No score can be reduced below 7 or raised above 18 using this method. See Table: Ability Score Costs for the costs of each score. After all the points are spent, apply any racial modifiers the character might have.

Step 3: Select Flaws
Next select any flaws that you wish for your character to possess. Each flaw selected grants you a bonus of 5 experience points that can be spent in any fashion that you wish during the next step. You do not have to select any flaws if you do not want to.
Step 4: Spend your starting Experience Points
All characters begin with 30 experience points that may be spent on skills and talents during character creation. You must meet the prerequisites for any talent that you purchase at this time. Consult Table: Experience Point Costs for the cost for various attributes. No skill may be increased above rank 4 during character creation.
Step 5: Purchase your Starting Equipment
All characters begin play with 150 gold pieces that they may spend on starting equipment as they desire. Various backgrounds and origins may modify this accordingly.
