When you start the game you can choose your own player character, you have a selection between Male or Female. The character shapes are all the same meaning there's only 1 male and female character. You can however edit your character textures and change the way you look, you can also change the textures of your default characters clothing set, this can for now only be done offline using a graphics program like paint, but there are plans to add a texturing program to the game that would allow you to texture your own character when you start the game.

Your Character

Although you can marry and have 2 children, you will only be able to control the one character and can't switch between family members. When death comes for you, you will be allow to take control of any of the family members that are still alive, that member will then become your active character. Your children can marry, but can't have kids until at least one of the family members past away, the maximum size of your family will always be 7. The last member of the family can be anyone you adopt into your family, this can be a child and in some cases even a grown up, this person will not be allowed to marry unless you pick this person as your active character.

Children will receive 60% of the skills of their respective parents, it's imperative that you use your trainer skill to teach your children and help them grow their skill tree, each time a family member has free skill points, you can assign that point to any of the skills. While any of your family members are in close proximity to you and you have a higher trainer skill than them, they will gain experience at twice the rate. You can assign your family to specific tasks and they will continue that task until you re-assign them.

Before you have your very own family make sure you have a home and that you have enough food and water so you don't starve your family to death, they too can die.

You gain experience and unlock extra skill points by working, completing contracts and taking part in the weekly competitions. Maximum skill level is 10, these skills directly affect how you gain experience in all the sub-skills, which all have 5 levels before it's maxed. Your sub-skills determine the quality of your products, and the higher your craftsmanship the more money you stand to make of your products when selling them to the market or in one of your shops.

The oldest your character will become is 120 years, but from age 85 and up your energy will drop faster and you will become a lot slower, it's during your last years that it's of vital importance that you use your Trainer skill and train your family your, skills so that when death comes for you, you do not have to re-acquire new skills. Over a couple of generations you should be a fairly experienced family well established in your community.

But I like my character why does it have to die ?

I know it's sad, I'm also attached to my character, therefore depending on what gender you are playing your first born will always look exactly just like you, just in a smaller version and when you die, you can simply take control over this family member and continue your bloodline. When you reach a certain point in your characters life you can also retire your character and assume control of your new heir of the family fortune.

Just take note if you have no heir and you die, then you loose everything, before you pass away you will be warned about it and will have time to quickly adopt someone into your family. This feature will help a lot online where people start the game buy everything and then simply vanishes leaving the server stuck with property nobody can buy or use, once your family dies out, what you own is given back to the state. The only fail safe is the ability to place your account on holiday for a maximum of 30 days per year, these days you can pick as you wish and does not have to be consecutively and your last option if you know you going to be away for some time is to sell everything and place everything into a trust account, which will allow you to claim it once you are back and should your family all have died.

Character Clothing

Their will be a ton of clothing you can buy and use, only the basic clothing will be on the market at the start, but as soon as someone has unlocked a specific recipe to craft some new clothing products, you will be able to buy that from the market.

Character Movement

Apart from walking and running everywhere, you will also be able to catch a cab or train, and can buy your own vehicle if you have money. To travel aboard to the other continents you can use a boat or airplane, in a lot of cases you will have to use a boat to haul your equipment across the continent to your new mining camp. There is no market place on these 9 continents so whatever you need you have to bring it across, nothing prevents you from setting up a shop on these continents, but until someone actually does that, what you need you will need to transport from the city, which will cost you a pretty penny.
