Also, a few people have asked about equipment. I am pretty liberal with it. However use this as a guideline: Max HP X 20. Don't go over that if you can help it. No platemail, warhorses etc at first level. Any other equipment is fine as long as it doesn't go overboard.
Things are moving along quickly. I have 2 characters almost completely finished and have sent 1 other set of numbers to another. Those that are interested please feel free to send me an email if you want me to get you started. I have a character sheet that I use that is very nice, I can send that to you. What I did with a few that haven't played is I rolled the numbers and filled out most of the sheet, saving throws, thaco's etcc. all the number stuff and let the player flesh out the character. That is to get you started anyway. If you want me to do that let me know.
