Frank wakes up and looks around.
...who is Frank, exactly?
Ahem, right. So let’s talk about the current main character of our game, Frank the Fighter! Is this the first time that we’re hearing his real class? Yes, yes it is. Really, right now, Frank is our placeholder.
We want you to be able to create whatever sort of character you wish to face the dangers that await you.
What sorts of things do we mean by that? Well for starters, you should be able to pick your own name and gender. The name is already modifiable in the code, but the problem is that everything is arbitrarily hardcoded to the male pronouns, which is just wrong. Not just for not having a female option, but because some things just don’t have a gender. The gelatinous cube is an example of a gender neutral creature. It's an it.
Your character’s race will be the next thing after gender. Your name and gender have no mechanical effect on your abilities, but your race will. You’ll be able to try out halflings, elves, dwarves, gnomes and more! A normal human will still be an option.
Finally, magical items will be coming. Some of these will be powerful artifacts capable of turning the tide of battle in an instant. Others will be useful trinkets. One of them might save your life.
