Creating a Thane

To play the game you need to create a new Thane. You can navigate to the Thane page by clicking on the Thane navigation button at the top of the page. Once on the Thane page, you will see several form fields that allow customization of your new thane. You must enter a Thane name in the Name field. You may also pick a Gender, male or female. You can pick one of five talents, Strength, Endurance, Speed, Portage and Magical. Strength is the amount of damage you do in attack. Endurance is the amount of damage you can take before you die. Speed is how fast you are in combat which determines how likely you are to hit your enemy. Portage determines how many things you can carry. Magical determines how fast you learn new spells. You can also pick a special ability. There are many abilities to choose from, the first of which is Grendel's Choice. If you select this ability then Grendel will randomly pick a free ability for you when the game creates your new thane. Abilities each give you one special advantage in the game. When you pick a special ability, you will see a brief description of what it does underneath the selection field. Once you have finished filling out the Thane form click on the Continue button and you will go to the Kingdom selection page.
