I've heard that there are some limitations on being able to create/play hardcore characters in Diablo 3.

What are the parameters (if any) that need to be met to create a hardcore character? Can I jump in straight away with a hardcore character?

You must reach level 10 with any character before Hardcore is unlocked. You do not need to keep a character at level 10 however, as deleting all of your level 10 softcore characters will not remove your ability to play hardcore.

Quoth Blue:

Level 10 is when we open access to create hardcore characters. We want players to have a general idea of how to play before giving hardcore a try. Experienced players will easily reach this level in a few hours, so we think this makes for a good balance.
