Choosing a Name

As soon as you connect to Shattered Kingdoms, you will be asked to choose a name. The name you enter will be the name of the character in the game, and you will use it every time you log onto the server to play.

What's in a name?

As part of coming up with a name, there are three important rules to consider: originality, not an english word (nor a combination thereof) and a name that must be able to be pronounced. When creating a new character, you will be clearly asked to confirm this - names that violate our simple policy are usually deleted, so please put some thought into your character's name. The help entry regarding a character's name is a good reference on when choosing a name.

Connecting for the first time

When you first connect, you are immediately asked for your character's name. Providing you come up with a name that isn't already in use and is also not an illegal name, you will be asked four separate questions:

  1. Is this name original and not from a popular work of fiction?
  2. Is this name a slang term or found in any english dictionary?
  3. Is this a combination of two or more other names or words?
  4. By answering as you have to the previous questions you have claimed that your name is completely legitimate in our fantasy world. If you have been untruthful and we deem your name unfit you may be denied without warning. This is your last chance.
    Are you sure this name is acceptable?

For those who prefer an automated method of obtaining a name, we now have a 'flash' utility by one of our players. Generate My Character Name!

A Password to go with a Name

The next question will be your password - this will be a security check asked of you every time you connect to the game. Be sure to come up with a password that is hard to guess and then keep it safe! Do not tell anyone this password: if others log in as your character with the password, your character could be deleted for mis-use!

Where to now?

The questions continue, guiding you through the process of creating a new character that will exist in the realms. Part of this includes answering questions about imaginary situations your new character might be faced with: answer these from the position of what your character would do, and you will do just fine. Note that there is no 'right' and 'wrong' answer in this section - they merely mold your character into the type of person you wish him to be.

As you complete the creation process, the last decision you have to make is which part of the wide realms you wish to start off your adventure in Shattered Kingdoms. Each city has good and bad points - most of which depend on what kind of character you wish to create. Be sure to read the help reference text for each kingdom - Ayamao, Empire of the Bright Star, Northern Wastes, Taslamar, Uxmal and Zhenshi. The kingdoms web page may also be helpful.

People are looking at me funny - what's wrong?

It might be time to choose an adjective for your character...
