In the following tabs below you can find additional help with the Character Creation Form, including all of the pictures used in the Player’s Handbook so you can quickly reference what the choices all mean.
*These fields are required.
There are two main factions from which the players can come from:
The Orc Khanate; refered to as the Khan’s Camp
The Northern Alliance; referred to as the Duke’s Camp
When creating a character:
- Select your camp
- Select your race from the appropriate list based on your camp
Please check that you are using the correct character creation form.
If you selected a living character, the next section has choices which you need to make. If you are a special character you should skip to the appropriate section for your race.
This is an overview of skills, with costs and availability:
Those marked in yellow are politically unavailable skills in the camps, and are subject to change.
Some skills have additional restrictions:
- You may only be one of Noble, Priest or Guild Member
- Nobles gain a one point skill of their choice as long as they meet the requirements.
- Forager / Prospector are mutually exclusive, you cannot get both.
- Any unspent skill points will become extra hits
Apothecary – can attach bandages to a wounded individual to halt their death count, and can apply a poultice to a wound to stabilise it, in preparation for surgery. Only apothecary’s can apply poultices to wounds
Forager – you specialise at recovering materials from the Vale from plant nodes and processing them into resins and powders.
Prospector – you specialise at recovering materials from the Vale from mineral nodes and processing them into metals and crystals.
Light Armour – the skill to wear light armour, grants 1 extra global hit. Restricts spell casting.
Heavy Armour – the skill to wear heavy armour, grants 3 extra global hits. Restricts spell casting.
Surgeon – the skill to repair a WOUND so that their patients can recover hits with further rest. Surgery is almost exclusively done within the player’s camp. When a surgeon uses their abilities, they may be given or asked to draw a wound card from a ref or crew member that will tell them more about the wound and what they need to do to fix it. See Healing in the Players Handbook pg. 19 for more information.
Magic Resistant – halves the duration of all spells cast upon you.

After you use this skill you must return to camp and rest for one hour before you can use this skill again. This cannot be used against spells or firearms.

Please put down the letter associated with the Ritual Rune, you will be provided with a sheet that provides the actual rune in your character pack, or you find them here.
Each ritual rune also has a reverse as listed here (you automatically know the reverse of any rune learnt):
