If you look through the Path of Legends (Information) forum you will get some important details about character creation under the Theme and Restrictions thread especially.
If you have a gmail email account that you do not mind telling me I will get you access to the games core book later this afternoon. Just got off work so about to go to sleep but I wanted to touch bases with you.
I recently put up a thread for the game in the fantasy forums. It is called: Path of Legends that is where the game willl be played. I will be working on an area for putting up things about your characters. In this area I will eventually put up an example of how I would like players to psst their characters.
