I have still been mucking about with EPT at a low level. After that character creation experiment a few weeks ago, I came across a blog post in which the author talked about stat roll mirroring as an approach to use instead of something like 4D6 and drop lowest for D&D. I forget the author or blog, but he called it twinning. Under this scheme if you don't like your rolls, you can subtract ALL of them from the max roll possible + 1, no picking and choosing, and get that set of inverted rolls.
Another way to add some flexibility between the roll X stats and assign the rolls as you like and roll for each stat in order is to write down an ordered set of rolls and then pick any stat as the first stat and apply them in order starting there, and wrapping around at the end of the list until all are filled.
Taking these two together, there are nine percentile rolls to make to set up a starting EPT character, the six basic stats, original skills, professional skills, and starting Kaitars. Throwing the last three in there as an additional minor help. It is nice to have a good skills roll, and Kaitars may be a handy "dump stat".
Here is our template:
With percentile rolls:
Interesting mixed bag there, the average is 53.7, so not going to mirror it.
Let's say we want a Warrior, and are more interested in attributes than skills.
So we start with the 90 for Strength
Original Skills 34
Professional Skills 12
This character will be a peasant or other relatively untrained fighter at first, but has a good attributes profile for a non-caster and will be good once levelled up.
A high professional skills character that might be decent from these rolls:
Original Skills 12
Professional Skills 90
Rescuing one of the lamers from the previous set of roll-ups, need to roll three more:
Or Sk 45
Pr Sk 19
This is a perfect character to mirror the rolls, subtracting each from 101:
Or Sk 56
Pr Sk 82
That's very powerful as is, or could be slid some to improve the PSY stat if planning to be a caster.
