Character Creation

For those new to character creation, I am happy to help you build your character sheets. This is my usual steps for character building:
 1) Choosing a name, race, & class
 2) Making a backstory
 3) Choosing ability scores
 4) Choosing class specific options
 5) Choosing Feats
 6) Choosing Traits & Drawbacks
 7) Choosing where to allocate skill points
 8) Buying equipment

Step 2 is the longest, but is by far the most important, especially for text based roleplaying.




Below are some more specifics for steps 1 & 3

Races:
Dwarf, Elf, Human, Half-Elf, Half-Orc, Halfling, Gnome

Classes:
Barbarian, Bard, Cleric, Druid, Fighter, Monk, Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Sorcerer, Wizard

System: Pathfinder
25 Point Buy

Table: Ability Score Costs
Score Points

8       2
9       1
10       0
11       1
