-Race, Gender, and Social Status all decided by dice rolls (group approved this)
-Everyone must think of a background for their characters (they want me to do this they are going to have to think too lol)
-Alignment starts off as Neutral, the actions they taken through their lives will change said Alignment.
-Characters become level 1 when their mentor deems them experienced enough to travle on their own.
Now I had them roll 3D6 for their stats and I was amased that nobody scored over a 15 on anything, now for a few people they don't care to have average characters because they know I always add items and such to make them stronger in the game. But there is always that few who don't like it because their lowest score isn't a 16, but I explained to them that it makes sense, they aren't trained in any art yet so how would their stats be so high seeing as how they have not yet lifted a weapon or cast a single spell, let alone explore a dungeon.
Hopefully this turns out good :).
