Characters are defined according to a modified version of rules from the fourth edition of Dungeons and Dragons, which is also the source of the game's setting.
Every account starts with two free character slots: more can be purchased by spending Zen.
Character Creation[modifier | modifier le wikicode]
When you create your character you first have to choose between one of the Three Shards. Within each shard are multiple Servers. At the moment characters in different Shards cannot interact in any way, however, they can use the chat system to communicate. Characters in different servers can transfer between servers within their Shard. See the Servers page for how to do this.
Race Selection[modifier | modifier le wikicode]
|In step I you select your Gender (Male or Female) and your Race between:
More races are to come. Note that each race gives your character different Racial Traits.
Class Selection[modifier | modifier le wikicode]
|In Step II select your Character's Class, which will determine your role as an adventurer. Currently available classes are:
Ability Scores[modifier | modifier le wikicode]
|In Step III you Roll for the character's Ability Scores.
The available scores come from predetermined sets of values. They are not individually rolled. Higher scores are automatically delivered to your primary and secondary ability scores. It is possible to reroll until desirable score result. You also select your racial ability bonus between the available ones from your race.
Appearance[modifier | modifier le wikicode]
|In Step IV choose your character's appearance.
You can select from a number of presets or you can create a custom appearance by adjusting the following features (not all of the following apply to all races): Head Shape, Hair, Eyes, Eyebrows, Facial Hair, Complexion, Horns, Tattoos, Scars, Face Scaling, Body Shape, Body Scaling
Background[modifier | modifier le wikicode]
|In step V select the Character Origin and his or her Deity Affiliation: these do not affect gameplay and are only provided for flavor.|
Overview[modifier | modifier le wikicode]
In the last step you give a name to your character. You are also allowed to add a final piece of background called Biography. By clicking Begin Adventure you reach Neverwinter Fields, which is the first tutorial zone.
Names *can* have spaces, a rarity in today's MMO's. Make good use of this and create a unique character.
Names are not unique across the Shard, but only within your account, another uniqueness feature.
Character Sheet[modifier | modifier le wikicode]
You can open your Character Sheet by pressing 'C'.
A lighter version of your Character Tab is available through the Gateway
