Roll 4d6, drop the lowest, that will give you a score. Generate 7, keep the 6 highest, and arrange them as you see fit. If you don't know what that means, ask me.
All standard PHB races and classes are allowed. Others will be on a case by case basis. Use standard starting gold/equipment.
Characters are level 1. No evil allowed.
Hm, can't think of much else.
Once I see a solid character sheet completed, and a background of at least 1 paragraph, I'll start you off. The sooner the intro thread is finished for everyone, the sooner the game starts. If things are taking too long, and most of the group is waiting for people to catch up, the game will start then, and other people will join the group along the way as they complete the intro.
