A walkthrough for creating characters
Please note, screen shots are from the GTK Client and content based on Crossfire v1.4.0
After you launch the client, look in the right side of the client - a list of public servers will be listed there.
It should look something like this:
#) Server # version idle Name players seconds 1) 220.127.116.11 0 1.4.0 514 2) bovine.muck.net 0 1.4.0 341 3) bratwurst.unix- 0 1.0.0-07-30 356 4) crossfire.aszli 0 1.4.0 116 5) crossfire.jyu.f 0 90 6) crossfire.plane 0 1.3.0 115 7) damn.informatik 0 D-0.91 346 8) games.prima.de 0 1.4.0 289 9) metalforge.real 7 1.4.0 124 10) mids.student.ut 0 1.4.0 112 11) ni.sytes.net 0 1.4.0 271 12) villa-strayligh 0 1.3.0 97 13) voldsboks.pvv.o 0 0.95.8-CVS 89 14) web.chemwatch.n 0 1.4.0 131 15) xover.mud.at 0 1.3.0 60 16) zeus.fh-branden 0 1.4.0 206 17) localhost (default)
Hit enter if you want to re-update this list. Choose one of the entries above followed by enter or type in a hostname/ip address Enter 0 to exit the program.
Here's what the listed information means:
Once you see the server list, type in a (server) number (or hostname/ip address) and hit enter. You probably want to pick a server that's close to you for reduced latency, etc.
Look for a floating window that says, “What is your name?”
Type in a name for your character and hit enter.
Another floating window will appear that says, “What is your password?”
Type in a unique password and hit enter.
Next, is choosing stats for your character.
Note: You can re-roll the stats as many times as you want.
Note: This also appears in a popup window as well, if the client has popups set to '1' .

Now it's time to pick a race.
For more information on the ability modifiers based on race and a brief description of each, visit the races page.
You should now see your character (based on race) in the Hall of Selection. In this example, it's a human standing at the top of the pentagram. picture here Use the direction keys to wander around the Hall of Selection
The hallway will lead into a much large room, like this: picture here
In front of each teleporter is a description of the Character Class. Step on a teleporter to select your class and begin play in Scorn.
