Yes. But the following might help, too:
Some instructions can be found in the OOC thread and This post
has an excel file attached to it. I used made & used the file to create my character and help with other's characters.
If I recall correctly (well, actually, I checked the values in the excel file so the information is correct - or was, at the time we made our characters), you have 15 points to spend on
|Vigour, Agility, Stamina, Intuition, Intellect and Luck |
and 50 AP to spend on skills, specializations and equipment.
It is possible that you'll be given additional AP to bring you on par with the existing characters; that will be kyrathaba's decision.
A note on abilities: Consider how you spend them; raising abilities is nearly impossible (I think), so you're stuck with them. And they determine the basic (i.e. free / no AP cost) levels of skills associated with it (e.g. a Vigour of 4 would mean that you Grip, Muscle, Climbing, Swimming (and other Vigour-based skills) will start at the value of 4 - at NO AP COST).
- Start with a concept
- Look at which skills are tied to which ability
- and then determine abilities.
- Use AP to raise skills beyond their starting value (according to the table in the rulebook).
- Use AP to purchase permanent equipment
- Use AP to buy specializations, if desired.
- Write a backstory, personality, etc. Post / PM / Email everything to kyrathaba - AND JOIN THE GAME !

I'll leave that to kyrathaba; I'm not entirely sure about the timeline and "civilization level" and don't want to give any false information.
Only, what kind of instruments are played?
Flute, apparently; my character plays it (though she hasn't managed IC, yet, for some reason...).
But I'd say the "traditional" fantasy instruments would be a good starting point... kyrathaba ?
