Care to explain this a bit. I will make my own character. It will be based on John Carter type hero and would have riding abilities etc. You told me to keep it simple but I want to make it as detailed as possible.

Feel free to put in as much detail as you like Dfg, that was just a suggestion I made because I didn't want to overwhelm new players, but if you have a concept in your head by all means brother flesh it out. The classes in the book provide your basic abilities, the background you deveolp for your character provides everything else. For instance if you say the character was a huntsman before an adventurer I would give a bonus to him were he to attempt to say, track down an animal as that would be something that it is reasonable to say he had experience in. John Carter, Conan the barbarian ect. are good inspiration for a character as they were direct influences on the people that developed the game.

Your doing fine Dfg, don't worry about the races I listed in that older post we are just going to ignore it except for the rolls I listed, just keep it to either human, elf, dwarf, or halfling like in the rule book, so basically whatever kind of background you come up with is fine. Cool character concept by the way. Just remember that with those rolls I posted you keep the three highest numbers and drop the lowest, each stat can have a maximum score of 18.
Glad to hear you are still aboard GoingNowhere. Anybody know if TDR is still in?
Also if anybody else is interested it is by far not to late, just let me know and I can get some rolls posted for you to start character creation.A thought occurs, just out of curiosity has everyone give the rulebook I linked to a quick look over?
