I havent played this style game before so I may need some help on this...can you tell me the races and what is the 32 point pick?
So you aren't familiar with Dungeons & Dragons
3.5? Just have a look at the d20 System Reference Document
for nearly all your questions in the books - these rules are freely accesible. It just takes a moment to get through them, but they're relatively easy to grasp. Take it from the top, read them at your leisure, and then
start with your character archetype, class, race, the works.
More likely than not, you want to look up the races of the Core books
(those being the Player Manual and Dungeon Master Guide), and have a looksie here
for the 32-point buy system (which is not found in the d20 SRD). From the d20 SRD, just browse and explore, though I'm sure people'd be very willing to help you out stat out a character. I personally use Myth-weavers
for my online char sheets, might help you out as well
Question time for the DM-to-be:
What do you figure to be the pacing of the game?
Ideally, how many posts a day do you want from your players (mostly to keep timezones in mind)?
How many players are you fishing for for this game?
And Core-only, right? Or do you keep some Unearthed Arcana variants in mind for our very limited party, given their current lack of equipment and abilities - Tattooed mages and the like, f'r instance?
