Alright. Heh. I actually missed that my character was accepted, so this is a pleasant surprise. Uh, okay, lessee... I didn't actually find out if we roll for gold or take average gold. I may have missed where it was put?
As shadowhntr7 indicated - the player's guide says take it so I'm not going to argue.
On the AP itself - it's a disgusting fact that I checked with my game store here and they quoted 'leave the warehouse in 7-10 days' plus '6 - 10 days posting time'. So I checked a US site - ordered it then and had it in the mail in 24 hours. And from the US to Oz they told me 4 - 6 days.
It's no wonder we shop online and shop internationally
