Why is 'bear trap' even on the equipment list?
I feel like this is a quote from a Mel Brooks movie or something, but I can't quite place it.

Now I'm picturing Woody Allen saying it.

Another way to preserve balance and randomness is to take the Standard Array and just roll randomly to determine which ability score gets which score.

In-order: Str, Dex, Con, Int, Wis, Cha
Roll 1d6 (re-roll if you come up with a number you've rolled before)
1: 8
2: 10
3: 12
5: 14
6: 15

Should be a 13 - missed in my pass-through.

You could also do this coming at it from the other angle: In-order, for 15, 14, 13, 12, 10, and 8, roll 1d6 and assign it to the following ability scores:
1: Str
2: Dex
3: Con
4: Int
5: Wis
6: Cha

Same basic mechanic, slightly reversed order.
