Characters are level 1, standard classes, any standard race, no level adjustments. Standard starting gold, with no more than 1/2 for any one item. To generate your characters stats roll 4d6, reroll 1’s and 2’s, taking the best of 3 rolls.
Use the rules above but the character starts at the average level of the party. Use character weath by level to determine how starting gold. The character start with whatever items he or she can aford but can not have any itme that is worth more than half of their starting wealth.
Per the Leadership feat they start at whatever level they are suposed to. Build them as you would New PC.
Followers are a dime a dozen. If you really want to flesh these out each one go ahead. But lets be honest I plan on killing a few of them, so don’t get attached. My advice is to generate standard followers types. Here is an example: I recruit and then train half my followers to be type A (fighters with these stats) and the other half are type B (rogues with these stats). They use a standard 15 point buy with no stat lower than 8 before racial modifiers. Their starting gold is either equal to Standard Starting Gold or half their wealth by level just like cohorts.
