Keep on the Borderlands and Beyond
There are many methods to generate your character's ability scores. We will use the following method:
1. Think about the type of character you want to play. Consult with your fellow players and discuss what makes the kind of adventuring party you'd like to have.
2. Roll 4d6 and remove the lowest die. Record the result on scrap paper. Do this 6 times.
3. Based on the character class you wish to play, assign your rolls to the abilities that make sense. Remember that each class has one or more primary abilities that have minimum requirements and high values that grant experience point bonuses during play.
4. If your rolls were terrible (more than 3 abilities less than 10), roll a new character.
