Am I playing with a bunch of cheater cheater pumpkin eaters, or did I get the shit end of the stick?

I'm playing a paladin so at least I have my celestial warhorse to comfort me.

Actually I'm not sure I am. When you get to the last section it says to use rolls 7-11 for your perks, of which there are 4, right? And really that's roll 8 because there's your 3.1 corruption in there somewhere. So you use rolls 8, 9, 10, and 11 to pick four perks. That still leaves you at 11 rather than at 12 like it should.

Or to put it another way, if you just decided you would use your last roll for corruption if you got it, you would be filling in perks with your 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th rolls, right? No need for the 11th. First determines your age, second your development, third your spec, fourth your weapon, 5th your outfit, 6th your power. That's six things, and then four perks left to determine, which is only 10 things, 11 if you include Corrupting
