Class represents your character's profession or demeanor, which can range from bard, to cleric, mage or fighter, along with many other options.
Not all classes are available to all races though, so by selecting a race you will only be able to choose one of the classes that race can take.
It really is for the best, however boring that seems. Then again, unlike the flashier roleplays, we are free and we let you do things they don't. You will need to create such a character, provide a description and write a short background before you can start playing. Yes, it's a wild and fairly lawless place but it isn't anarchy.
Legends of Belariath is a detailed online roleplay based on the IRC network. It should be fairly obvious then, that if you are looking for a point and click environment, we are off to a bad start already. Your character will interact with others and the world will interact with your character. Your character doesn't just pop onto the stage, play out some random acts and then pop off again with no memory of what happened the next time they show up.
So, if you want a roleplay where you can just play out isolated scenes that bear no relation to anything else, you are likely better going elsewhere.
But if you want to create a character that actually lives within a continually evolving world alongside others who may love, hate, fear or despise your persona depending on how they act, then this could be the place for you.
OK, one final topic before you can get going - sex and slavery.
Well, perhaps two topics but they tend to be interwoven.Taking a look at the Races and Classes sections will give you some good ideas and will also tell you how we define such things here in Belariath.While it's possible to make some changes later on, it does help you if you make the correct decisions right from the start.Play here under the age of 18 and you will be permanently banned. Some aspects of individual roleplay may involve obtaining sex by force and/or taking slaves.You can happily join the roleplay without doing such things yourself but you be expected to respect the rights of others to play such scenes between consenting adults.The roleplay evolves and actions bring consequences.
