Point value by distance

I've a simple question. I want to create points with a specific value depending on the distance from a starting location.
For example:

start point = 0

point 10 meters away from staring point = 5
point 20 meters away from starting point = 10
and so on

over alle the points should be in a 100 metere radius and should be equally placed (like creating a 100 meter grid with 1 point in it, around the starting location)

the points should be the base for some interpolation methods(kriging, idw) i'm going to do..

i think this is a simple question, but in the moment 've no idea how to do this automatically!
First i was thinking to make several buffers around the starting point (10m, 20m..) and then create the points manually in theses buffers. but thats not the way i want
to do it.

any ideas?
