stair stringers

Okay, someone with autocad, please help.

I need to replace my existing stairs. The height to the finished floor upstairs is 127" and the length is 205" to the floor or 188" to the top of the last tread, where I would prefer the stairs to end.
I have figured, refigured, built templates and am generally going nuts, trying to get the rise and tread correct and hopefully not too steep.

I have no problem putting a platform at the bottom, if need be.
Thanks in advance.

stringers

Thanks for all your help. Got the stringers cut and in place yesterday. Even managed to get treads laid on the stringers so we could go to bed after a very, very long day. I love inexperience.
