You can either use a 27 point-buy system, or roll your stats up in the presence of any of our GM’s (generally, roll 4d6, reroll 1’s, drop lowest, assign as you wish). Or, do both, and choose whichever outcome you prefer. To access an automated point-buy system, click here. Just pick your race and start assigning stats; you can safely ignore the rest (write them all down when you’re done).
Note that this system will not allow any stat to drop below 8, nor to exceed 15; your racial bonuses will increase both the minimum and maximum scores (e.g., Humans get +1 to all stats, so they have a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 16 on all stats). For those looking to create a character of extremes, 27 points is just enough to get you three 15’s and three 8’s in your stats, not including racial bonuses.
