So this is my first straight AD&D 1E character that I've rolled up since 1980. I did this in preparation for a new AD&D campaign a friend is running through the A1-4 series Scourge of the Slave Lords. I wanted to get used to the rules, especially multiclassing, so I wouldn't be completely lost when I created my character.
I think I did everything right. The attributes were rolled 4d6 drop lowest.
Here's what I have. I like him.
