    I plan out what I want my final template to be, then I select the two skills that are hardest to gain, and set them to 50.
  4. First, I choose a character type. I'm (theoretically) a roleplayer, so that's pretty important to me.

    Then I choose the more important skills to the template. For example, when I created a mage, I choose magery, meditation, evaluate intelligence and wrestling. Resisting spells and spellweaving came later. When I made my warrior, I chose swordsmanship, tactics, healing, anatomy. Chivalry, bushido and parry came later.

    When I have the type down, then I optimize the character's template based on survivability first, then the ability to kill. Killing quickly is a bonus.

    It was only after I got the characters close to where I wanted them that I started optimizing the items, which is very similar to training a skill in today's games.
