Chapter 1 - Character Creation
This first thing you'll want to do - before even getting started at all, is to read the Rules of Conduct... If you don't agree with those, then you shouldn't get started at all...
Now that all of that is taken care of, it's time to think about your character...
For all the various places of HxR, you play as a single character.. you've already named your character - if you've signed up with these forums, so that's taken care of... But.. what does your character look like? What does your character do? Why is you character at the labs, or sanctuary?
When setting up your character, you should be aware that there are several species to choose from.. before getting started with your pets, it's important that you register your character - so everyone knows who you are... several of the more advanced features are not possible without registering a character - so doing this early will take care of problems for you later.. plus, it's kinda' hard to roleplay without a character, right?
Now, I won't give you all
the details about characters in this tutorial - instead, we'll save that for the section about characters... But, we can give you a gereral summary of what you will see there - and what you will be required to do.
You see, all creatures (characters included) follow stats.. for now, just ignore them.. instead, think about what you want your character to be.. boy? girl? tough? nervous?.. what about it's species? Faerie? Human? Ogre?.. Well - once you've decided everything about your character, you will be asked to type up a brief profile.. you can expand on your profile later, but we really just need people to tell us:
Attributes, Abilities, and Skills
Oh wait.. Attributes? Oh-ho! That's right.. each character gets to be customized.. not every female human is the same, nor is every male faerie! So, you'll get to select from a list of Attributes (and later on, skills) that will make your character even more unique.. though, the most unique feature of your character will be it's general profile - after all, you wrote it yourself!
Now, it would be wise to keep in mind the general storyline... or rather.. You know what?
Why not take a break from the tutorial - and head on over to the character section .. and go ahead and create your character
, then you can pick up on chapter 2! :D It would be silly to try to explain things twice, when you're in the wrong section, right? So.. let's just start with step 1 - character creation - and head over there now
It's important to put a bit of thought into creating your character, for this is who you will be playing as.. this is "who will own your pets" - this is the one who will go on all your adventures, as you. You only get one character - so be sure to create something you are happy with!
