Which is?

As I said, make sure the idea works for the area.  That is the Miskatonic Valley, specifically Arkham.  So let me know first :)

This is the link to Byakhee, the character generator.  Make your character in this and email it to me (send me a pm and I will give an email address to send it too).  This way I can keep track of everyones and it can be very easily updated.  At the end of each case/adventure, I would want an updated version to be sent to me.

Just download the program itself, the 5.5 rules and the back sheet (so you can fill out the fun stuff like history or known family and friends).

The only rules you really need are character creation rules which that program does for you.  On Chaosium's website (www.chaosium.com) they also have the quick start rules which should tell you what you need to know.

It literally takes .5 seconds to make a character on it.  You open it, choose the investigator wizard and which era (modern time), place your stats how you wish (100 points, 1 for 1), click next and go to the next window and so on and so forth.  When its done, you can easily fill out the back sheet on the program as well.  It is essentially a glorified word processing program.

Honestly, I'm a CoC noob...and Byakee is easier than the half hour it takes me to fill out a Forgotten Realms sheet by hand.

Skill points are determined on the program by your Int and Edu so don't worry about them too much.  The only other thing is no skill should start higher then 70% (except your own language which is usually quite high since well...most people know their own language).
