Later, as the real game begins, the character can change to whichever of the numerous classes he wants.
Now that is a great character creation process - and actually reflects what happens in the real world (of people playing games). How is someone supposed to know what class they want to play from the get go?

Can I suggest that the whole post you've just made replace the existing text at http://angband.oook.cz/variants.php?variant=portralis
