Hi everyone my real name is Kenzie, though my characters name is based off my daughters name Tyra (pronoused (teer-a) but i decided to spell this characters name differently because most people think of Tyra Banks for my daughter and I don't want to always be having to explain how to say this characters name though it would add a good amount of sass to her personality.
Any who I am new to this type of roleplay, I have normally done things such as wild horse or mythical horse type store lines. I'm wanting to try something new and i happened upon this forum. It looks fun and I've spent the past 2 hours looking at all the different information before I made this profile.
I decided to do with the Drykas, because they are horsemen/women and (big surprise) I love horses.
So I have all of that figured out and I've looked into starting her character sheet but that's very intimidating and I'm not totally sure how to start that, and how to pick her skills and such. I have a general understanding I think but I am not 100% sure. could someone help me with that maybe? I understand my character should have the horseman skill and the rider skill, but like..... I don'y know i'm still rather confused about that.
Then I am don't know what to do after I have gotten her character sheet done.

So I suppose this is both a "hello" and please "help".

Hello Terra, I am far from the best helper, but as a starter I would probably start with: who is Terra Rosamond? You say you think she would be a Drykas. Have a good read of the lore article for the Drykas and see where your idea of who your character is would fit in.

Take a look at open cities and see which one you think would suit your character. Think about how they might have got there.

Then, once you have your character concept, you will have a better idea of what kind of skills to take.

Also... don't get too overwhelmed. :) there is a lot of information, it would be impossible to read it all at once. And finally - welcome to Miz! :thumbsup:

I guess my biggest worry is that there is so much to all the backstories and such of each race. I have looked at the lore for them, and I have an idea for her backstory, but I’m worried about going against the cultural confines. I guess easily put I’m everything is so detailed and complex I don’t want to do anything wrong.

Welcome, Terra! :) I actually have a friend with that name hehe, it's very pretty.

Ennisa and Mayhem both gave some solid advice, however I will also caution you to be mindful when looking at the open cities. If you want to play a Drykas due to your love of horses (something many people here share!), I imagine you will actually want your character to have a Strider, and not all of the currently open cities are horse friendly simply due to the terrain/climate. (Syka is a jungle, and Lhavit and Wind Reach are located on and in a mountain respectively).

As for doing things wrong, I wouldn't worry too much; the lore can be a lot to take in, so by all means, do take the time to read the Drykas lore page over a few times, since it's easy to miss things. But you're more than welcome to ask questions either here or in Discord, and if you do make any mistakes on your CS, the character sheet liaisons are there to help out, and will point out anything that needs to be fixed. The learning curve for the lore can be steep, and it's perfectly normal to make mistakes when you first start out.

I look forward to seeing you around, and if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!
