After obtaining the latest game client and logging in, you will be presented with a Character Create screen. (If you have already created a character you will be presented with the Character Select screen. We currently have a maximum of six characters per account. If you do not have the maximum number of characters you may press the "New" button to make additional characters.)
Select basic features for your character, including gender, skin tone and starting outfit. This can include a hat! If you have purchased clothing in the Marketplace it will not be available in Character Create. Your purchased clothing will be available in the Dressing Room in game. Any character on your account is able to access your purchased clothing.
When you are pleased with your character's look you should select a name. We encourage you to use a period-appropriate name! In time we will include a random name generator to assist you, however for now there are a few wonderful resources on the Internet available to help you select a Regency apprioriate name. Please ensure you have reviewed the name restrictions in our Terms of Service.
If all your intended changes are complete, press the "Validate Name" button below your character name. If by chance there is another player in the world already with your name you will be given an error and asked to choose a different name. Once you have selected a valid name press the "Enter World" button to continue into the game.
