    OK. So I am way into building my characters absolutely from scratch and putting lots and lots of hours into developing them. So i was wondering if its aloud to say start your character at a young age with novice perks, and beginner stats depending on your race (like the actual game) and as you play through an RP and finish it your character will level up. And after so and so amount of RP's (like 12 or so RP's) they will age one year. And in order to level up perks you have to have a certain amount successful of actions with that perk tree it will level up. For example say you cast a destruction spell ten times and they connect then the perk tree gains one level like the game then for the next level it doubles up to twenty. And as you play longer and longer you add on to the character card so say if the character gets slashed badly a crossed the chest in an RP you add that scar into the physical description for the next RP. I am sorry if this is a strange question but I'm new to this and i didn't want to just go through and do it if its not aloud so i thought i would ask first. Also one more question. I'm planing a mage character so i was wondering also if we a strictly restricted to the spells in game and there specific uses. Or if we can be creative with it like say use ice spells to freeze a lake or as a high leveled illusionist be able use illusions other then the ones in game. like plant images in your enemies head, or make mirror images so on so forth. So basically can we be creative with our magic (within reason of course) or must we follow the spells in game to the letter. Thank you in advanced to any one who replies and helps a newbie like me out.

    Hi Dar'Aava,
    Generally speaking in the RP's here, the characters don't "level up" as they play. Most characters come into an RP with some life experience and a set of skills already. There are some that start young characters and usually limit themselves with to a small set of skills so they aren't rediculously over powered for their age.
    Now, I suppose that if you run a character through one RP and then move on to another, you could adjust or "level up" your character to give him more experienc. Although, from what I've seen so far, most of the RP's fall either during or shortly after the in-game story and so you might not have aged much but you could adjust up your chosen skills.
    Unlike tabletop games like D&D, characters and creatures don't have "hitpoints" so doing damage is decided by the player as the story goes. In other words, if you're part of a team and come across a giant (for example), each person takes a whack at the giant and decides what kind of damage they give and receive and usually the last person to have a go is the one that kills the creature. If there's a group of creatures, then it can be decided among the group how many each player gets and then each player writes how they took care of them... or get taken care of...

    Hope this helps
