Please don't post debates about the best way to generate stats and badwronggun. And no thoughts on statistics schmistical stuff, please. I just want to know your current method of generating stats.

"...I let them choose, and offer a different way o rolling stats. I like to expose the players early to rules as guidelines.

My current option in 5E, is to let them roll pairs of stats six times, in order. Then they choose a high stat from the pair and then they have to choose a low stat from another pair.

Example, Green is a high choice, red is a low choice

STR 15,16

DEX 10,11

CON 13,9

INT 13,14

WIS 12,17

CHA 9,12

So the player would wind up with:

STR 16

DEX 10

CON 13

INT 13

WIS 17

CHA 9

..."

You can choose the high and low choices in any manner, but you have to choose a low choice when you choose a high choice, and yes, I copied pasted cuz I am lazy

I won't link to the 'book' methods but here are some links to some atypical methods posted in this thread:
