After downloading and installing the client, I rolled up a Human Champion, named Betachamp. I won't tell you what my first character was named, but rest assured, it would have gotten me insta-banned. Suffice to say, the name filter needs work. The character creation is interesting with several options for geographic origin which affect the color choices for hair, eyes, and skin. After making myself look as much like Conan as I could, I entered the world... and found myself in prison. Thankfully, I was assisted by a friendly Ranger, and started beating on guards until I got my first look at one of the things which make this game a unique experience. I got to see a Nazgul, and it was impressive..
