Here's an easy question:

How are we determining our ability scores? Standard point buy, or rolling randomly?

I personally prefer point buy, but I'm cool with whatever.

The PHB gives 3 options: (1) Point Array, (2) Point Buy, and (3) Rolling. I prefer either option 1 or 2, and I actually like 1 more than 2.

FYI, (1)Point Array and (2)Point Buy are identical. The only difference is that the Point Array is a sort of standard spread for the point buy system.

Right, which means they aren't identical Smile

I ONLY CARE ABOUT REUSLTS!

...

... anyway, I can't recall exactly why right now, but I remember deciding that I liked option 1 best a couple days ago. I'll look again to remind myself and get back to you.

I would go with the point buy system although it looks like it is slightly lower powered than we are used to in other campaigns.

Unless we are going to all "get together" online and roll guys then it will be a point buy or point array. I saw this because the urge to cheat on a roll system is to high, I should know. I didn't on sarge cuz i sat in front of patty and rolled it but if it wasnt then I would have for sure. Its just to easy to drop an extra good roll or two...or use a auto roller.

So if you all want to get together and do it we could do that. If not then a point system (havent examined them enough to decide)
