At the beginning, you are asked to come up with a name for your character, a Life Class (Reborn, Natural Born or Lost One) and from there I roll your stats. If you'd like to know how I determine these numbers, here <Roll 5d20, Add up the total and average number> After all 6 stats have been rolled, the totals are given to you and you get to pick where each total will go. The following are your stats.
Life Points, Strength, Endurance, Magic, Movement, Charisma
Most of these are self explanatory, Magic includes Wisdom and Intellect (or Intelligence, same difference) and Charisma is how well you interact with others.
Now, with that being said. You also start off with 5 Skill Points. You can allocate those into 5 of these stats with some exceptions- http://www.d20pfsrd.com/skills
- ones not in use: fly, all knowledge, perform, ride, survival, and swim. These will affect your interaction with the world and your ability to do things such as spot traps, decieve people, craft potions and other such things.
