each player rolls 4d6kh3 for each attribute in order. the scores cannot be rearranged. the DM may roll additional sets of attributes depending on how generous they are feeling. afterwards, each set is put in a pool and the players discuss who should get which set of attributes. the attributes come as a package deal; you cannot mix and match STR from one set and INT from another.
A tiny instance for guys, gals, and those of us who know better. Open to any topic!
