Shalazar is a roleplaying game, and like any of the society games, you will need to create a character in order to play. The character generation system for Shalazar is slightly different from most of the previous society games--there are no 'stats' as such. Rather, you choose a number of merits and flaws based upon the type of character you would like to play. These attributes determine not only who you are and what you can do, but what your role is within society and the world.
Speaking of which, since Shalazar is in a world in which magic is quite common, we've included a page about types of magic.
Before you begin playing, we'd appreciate you taking the time to look at our Player Contract, which explains the GMs' vision of the game and what you can expect from us. You can also look at some sample characters to give you an idea of the types of things that will fit into the world of Shalazar.
