    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    We are in "PREVIEW" for the "Novice Gear", which is the beginning gear. It is shown along the left-hand side of the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    We can also click on "Veteran Gear", which will give us a preview of what the character will look like if they have the top gear for their class or profession.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Also, we can click on "No Gear", which will give us a view of them in no gear. Let's stick to "Novice Gear" for this demonstration because this is what we will start with at the beginning of the game.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    We will need to choose a "RACE" from the panel on the right-hand side of the screen. Right now, we have the race of "Breton" chosen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Let's click beneath that and choose the "Orc" race. Orcs are a little bit different. They are a little bit hairy with big, nasty teeth.

  9. 9
    We also have the "Redguard", which is a powerful fighting race in the game.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Next, we can choose "High Elf". High elves are somewhat haughty. They are the magic users, mostly.

  11. 11
    We also have the "Wood Elf". They are excellent archers, rangers and scouts.

  13. 13
    We also have the "Argonian" race, which are lizard people from the swamps.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Then we have the "Dark Elf". They are also known as "Dunmer", and they have darker skin and red eyes.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Then, we have "Nord", who are very much like Vikings. They are big, tall, powerful Viking-types.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    There are different kinds of "ALLIANCE", which can also be chosen from the panel on the right-hand side of the screen. There is the "Daggerfall Covenant", which is the Breton groups. We have the "Aldermeri Dominion", which is the elving groups. Last, we have the "Ebonheart Pact", which is the swamp-dwellers, the dark elves and the Nords. These are basically the outcasts.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    We have the "Sorcerer", which was previously selected in the demonstration. Sorcerers obviously use magic, such as lightning bolts and that type of thing.

  20. 20
    We also have "Nightblade", who are thieves. They are also good with bows and arrows.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Then, we have "Templar", who are something more of a holy knight. They fight and have a bit of light damage.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Let's select "Body", which is the third option from the menu at the top.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    We have a triangular bit under "Body Type", which will allow us to go up to "Muscular", or down to "Thin" or "Large", whichever we prefer.

  24. 24
    We can change "Skin Color" under "Features".

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Lastly, we can change the "Face", which is the fourth option in the menu at the top. There are a number of different things we can do with the face.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Under "Face Type", we can choose a "Soft" face, or a more "Heroic" face, if we prefer. These settings are something that the game decides. Apparently, according to the game, heroes have big chins.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Then, we simply enter in our character's name in the bar below the menu at the top. In this case, we are going to name ourselves, the mighty "VisiHow".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Once we've done this, we can then go down to the bottom right. The option to the left of "Randomize Appearance" is "Create". We will click "Create".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    This will create "VisiHow" for us, and "VisiHow" will be logged into the game.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
