For our Landfall series, I decided to create a Mechari Medic rolling down the Settler path. The Medic presents a whole new playstyle for me, and the Settler path is the least familiar to me of all of the paths. I chose Mechari because Domi and Datix chose Cassian and Chua.
Though I know Kryssi is not a real person, and I realize she will become scrap metal when the game launches, I spent a lot of time creating her. As you can see, she turned out magnificently. I mean, look how cute she is!
The first screen we see when creating a character is this one:
As you see, we choose our faction, race, class and path, and gender…unless you’re
confused like Datix a Chua. All of your faction, race, class and path summaries are right there to help you with your choice.
Now for the fun part: customization. We choose our face style, then customize it to suit our aesthetic. We also get to choose our skin color, hair style, crystal color and facial accessories.
As you see facial customization has a shload of options:
Hair style, skin color, facial accessories and crystal color all have a respectable array of choices as well. You may notice there is no option for a body type, nor are there any body type sliders at this time. I know a lot of people have strong feelings about this, and I do not know what Carbine’s plans are regarding body style choices at this time.
Once you’ve made your decisions, you choose your name and, fingers crossed, you don’t get one of these:
Instead, you get your freshly made female Mechari. Now get out there and kick some ass!
Next up for Kryssi: shocking her way through the Arkship Destiny, while learning all things Settler. See you soon cupcakes!
