I found an article about having veteran players playing first level characters. The idea is not to let you player know what their stats are. Now when they encounter a enemy they don’t known their strength gives them an advantage. Or if one hit will kill them. To me that makes it more realistic. You learn what you can do as you go.
Probably even be a good idea for new players. They can focus on playing and learning about their characters and not on the minutia of the game. A very interesting idea.
