    Also, we can click on "No Gear", which will give us a view of them in no gear.

    Let's click beneath that and choose the "Orc" race.

    If we want to see quickly what our character might look like, we can click "Randomize Appearance" in the bottom right corner of the screen.
    This will randomly change the character. It is completely random, as we can see. Each time we click "Randomize Appearance", we'll get another option.

    Now, let's click on the "Class", which is the second option in the menu at the top of the panel on the right-hand side of the screen.
    This option will allow us to change the class. It's a base class. We can do quite a bit as we move through with each class. Each class can serve to fill functions of the other class. We have "Dragonknight", which is a powerful fighter. They also use some bits of magic.

    Under "Face Type", we can choose a "Soft" face, or a more "Heroic" face, if we prefer.
