We will be using the Point Buy system of determining stats, as described in the Player's Handbook on page 13.
When you level up, you have the ability to decide between taking the average roll for HP gain ((Hit Die / 2) +1 + CON Modifier) or rolling for HP gain (1dX + Con Modifier). If you choose to roll for HP gain, it must be done in front of the DM.
Feats vs. Stats (lvl 4, 8, etc.):
You are welcome to take feats instead of stats as your class progression permits (4, 8, 12, etc. for most classes, 4, 6, 8, etc. for Fighters). If you choose a feat over a stat upgrade, inform the DM.
You're welcome to keep your own character sheets, but ensure that the DM has a copy of your statistics.
