My elven fighter would be female, rather hard bitten (especially for an elf), a bit ascetic, and not given to much subtlety. To her, anyone not a fighter is a wet behind the ears ninny who doesn't really belong on an adventure and are more trouble than they're worth as she'll probably have to stand between them and danger. She manages, most of the time, not to let this attitude show. Much.
Well Mint, I guess I could see the appeal of the point buy. If another player agrees to it, then I guess a 73-point purchase would be fine so long as no stat goes below 8 nor above 18.

Sure, that works for me. 16/16/16/8/8/8

Kidding! I'll work on my character tonight and try to post. I'm on the road so it might be a few days before we have access to the interwebs again.

Excellent! Also, mint wanted to see if anyone else wanted to instead do a 'point-buy' for stats. Do you want to or just stick to the array listed?
