Loosely yes, but it depends more on race then country.

Elves, for example, have soft consonants and longer names. (Illaseira or Baelith for example)

Serpenti have a lot of sibilence (Hiissith, Sshhassa); make it sound like a snake and you're close.

Dwarves have a couple of names; a first name, a clan name and an earned name; it might look like Vraxis Maeglor Goldseeker, where the first is the given name by the parents, the second denotes clan (and is not used commonly), and the last is based on something the Dwarf did which was notable and is presented to the Dwarf by the patriarch/matriarach of the clan. It is quite possible that a PC may not have yet earned the earned name.

Humans (and Half-Orcs) from Finrier have hasher, nordic sounding names - Uruz, Ushak, Burail, Vlad, etc.

Thri-Kreen and Dromites have a lot hard consonants and discordant stops in thier names - Ixxu'Tiq, Tchak'Kat.

Most other humans are a blend of European and Egyptian sounding names and their last names often denote thier job if not their parentage; Cooper, Johnson, Smith, etc.

That help?

They are more akin to bard - use bard HD.

As for rolling, You can roll once you know what you are.

so...left off a die...only used 6 rolls instead of 7--rolled one more 4d6 for total of 7...12, allowing me to toss an 11.

rolls generated (leaving off lowest of 4d6) were 14, 15, 18, 11, 15, 12--one time adjustment of one of the 11's to 10 and the 15 to 16, giving to assign 14, 16, 18, 10, 15, 12

So ability score assignment

AbilityScoreR ModTotalBonus
Stg10-- 10--
Dex16+2 18+4
Con15-2 13+2
Int18+2 20+5
Wis14-- 14+2
Cha12-- 12+1


HP :P 8 +1 = 9

Keep in mind, on level 1 you get full HP.

Um... If you're talking about the Oracle class from the Advanced Players' Guide, you do know you can just start there, right?

Also, remember you don't need to roll HP for level 1, you automatically get max.

@Evoles: your character looks interesting, and there's some fun potential for roleplaying there! I noticed you've written everything up in text. Did you know there's character sheets available here? Go to the Tools drop-down menu, and click on My Characters. You should be able to work it out from there: remember to use the Pathfinder sheet. As an example, here's my sheet (incomplete at the moment).

Ok, decided on just running a straight Cleric. I'll dig into the Oracle thingamabob after I'm more comfortable with pen/paper again. Filling out the character sheet now and will be posting everything either tonight or tomorrow.

Just a quick update on what we are waiting for before we get started.

1) Still waiting for a background for HL's character.
2) Kailtrin has to update a few things as per the critique I had sent him (which won't really hold us up)
3) Still trying to get a fifth player - prognosis is positive. This will not hold us up too much as I can probably get started and introduce the 5th character as we go.

HL has informed me that this week he will be super busy. With luck, we can get these items cleared up and be on our way next week.

So it looks like we will have six players as Pojo has replied and is putting together a character too. This is a good thing.
