We have the character creator!!! It took a massive amount of work for a small team of two people to pull this off so we are very proud ^_^
*The game is still in active development so, the UI, Descriptions, Stats and other details will be much more polished in the final game.
Along with visual appearance, skills and perks you can select characters origin details and reputation. These represent your avatars life before the game events and they will play a large role in how other characters will treat you. Though you can also change reputation through your actions during gameplay.
You’ll be able to select your ethnicity, origin story and the reputation you have earned during the war. Origin story provides story background for your character, unlocks some unique encounters and dialogues. Life as a Shaman will be far different from that of a warrior. It also comes with useful stat and skill bonuses to reflect your characters experience before the game events. If you’d like to start from more of a blank character, you can always pick the “Wanderer” option.
Reputation alters some of the reputation stats by which other characters will judge your actions. Whether you are cruel or benevolent, always honest or a trickster. Some dialogue checks and story resolutions will be easier/harder depending on how the characters feel about your reputation and personality.
Class and Profession options are more there to give you starting build presets. They act as archetypes, which you can freely ignore to pick your own skills, attributes and perks.
We’ll be back soon with more updates showing combat and level design.
