Ancient Legion - Tips/Tricks/Strategy

Ok, I've decided to start a new thread about Ancient Legion where we can discuss (as the title states) any tips/tricks/strategy and hints..

What race/class are some of you going to choose and why?

Too bad no one has anything to provide yet!

I can start....
Don't go to sleep while training!
This just unbalances your skill and you'll wake up to more "red" skills as opposed to "green".

I've decided to be a barbarian warrior. I'm vicious at heart, what can I say...
No one wants to share what race they're going to be and why?

Also, the 5th mission asks for a number by pigeon....what's the frickin' number if not 14?

So what is the gameplay like? i'm a big rpg/mmorpg fan. I like to see my character(s). Travel through a vast world/different environments. See battle animations etc... Im not into iMafia/Epic Petwar type of gameplay whatsoever.

GodSon, in that way, Ancient Legion IS like the iMafia type games. It is a mostly text based RPG, with static pictures etc. - so if you're not into those types of games, this game is not for you.

That said, it is also very different from the majority of the iMafia games out there. For starters - this game is deep. Very, very deep. If you love creating your characters in Dungeons and Dragons and want to control every aspect of a dozen (or more) attributes, want to equip items in each hand and balance using a spell over holding a potion - this game has what you are looking for. On the one hand it seems to be lacking some customization - I haven't yet seen how you indicate your sex or race - but you do choose professions and the level of detail of your character stats is beyond anything else I've seen in these types of games.

Also the quests are notable in that they play like the old 'Choose you own adventure' books. Each quest has multiple paths, some of which lead to failure, some to various levels of success.

There is a lot going on in this game. I can tell it's got an existing user base - lots of people who know what they're doing and are willing to help. But at the same time, it's almost too much for me. Don't get me wrong, I give them lots of credit - this is not a skimpy game. It just may not be the right one for me. That said, I plan to continue to mess around with it for a few days, but these are my initial impressions after a couple of hours play.

Thanks for the in depth info. I am a fan of D&D(enjoyed D&D tactics for psp) but i am also a very visual person as far as gameplay goes to keep me entertained for hours as far as an mmorpg/rpg goes; and i am still hoping for a game like that to emerge. i'm glad to see someone finally is raising the bar in those type text based rpg's but i think i will pass. Again thanks for the heads up!!!

On the first screen upon load up once you hit the "enter game" button or whatever is called, your picutre is there and under it is some option
"character options" or something along those lines (doing it off memory).
In there, you can choose picture to indicate race and further tweaking of your character stuff.
Something like that...

edit:
It's challed "edit profile" right under the picture...
