I started working with my group to make their characters. I'm doing one at a time because the 3 and 3.5 series still confuses me somewhat. So see if this is right.
Character is a Cleric. Highest score was 16 which went into WIS. Lowest was 7 which went into INT. So there is an INT modifyier of -2. For Skills it says a PC gets 2 + INT modifier x 4. Which would actually be 0 for this Cleric but the book says everyone gets at least one skill point every level. So I'm right that at level one she only gets the one skill point right?
Also for race modifiers do the scores raise the one and lower the other (one is a plus the other a negative because of the elf race) so that the score it now 15 and 11? Or do they stay the same and when she rolls for something in that section it's plus or minus the class modifier?
And where on the frickin' sheet do the actual scores rolled go? There is a total box and then where all the modifiers go and then another box at the end. It's extremely confusing to me.
