Hello and warm greetings hundreds of my new friends!
I just discovered Arcaea and joined the game yesterday morning. Coming from a background that enjoys a 3D ORPG for years I have had time to hone my RP skills on the keyboard and became almost instantly curious about this game. Followed after by mild excitement. I do have 0 experience with MUD gaming, however. The thousands of commands you all find so easy to know and use will take this slow typer a bit of long hard practice! But I am having a lot of fun asking questions, learning, chatting in tells with kind folks, and slowly walking about the road reading the descriptions of what is around me. I think I can actually get into this kind of free form open sandbox RPG!
But I suppose you came to read my question, hmmm? Well simply but I know this is a hardcore lore centered role-playing community. I tried to investigate on my own but there is seriously so much to read (manual and lore-wise) my head is starting to hurt. Races and Classes. From a generalized and stereotypical standpoint of in-character RP how are they described; treated; what is their demeanor; professional motives. I was also looking for what skills each class has and a bit about them. If you guys might be willing to help out a new player with your own words and ideas as well as links to the 'rule book' I would be very happy.
I made a Siren druidess because i enjoy druids in D&D, which is my measuring branch, but found out they may not be what kind of character I will wanna play both mechanically and role-play wise. I was under the assumption they were casters as well as shifters. Think I read somewhere I can change my race if I die and my class. If not I can always start again. I'd just like to get a 'feel' for the classes and races before I commit totally. Guess I had my little test run and passed it. Looking forward to being a small part of the community.
P.S. I almost didn't pass the test because of how 'un-like my thinking' the script game commands are. I will no doubt be a total novice for a year or more, so if you meet me IC have mercy.
P.P.S. Edited spelling to make me not look like the poor speller I am!
