Races

In the AlterNet, character creation is a unique and highly customizable process. Each character is made up of two distinct components: a “Race Body” and a “Race Soul.” This innovative system allows for a vast array of combinations, enabling players to create their ideal character by mixing and matching various race body and race soul options.

When a player selects a “Race Body,” they are granted a colored slot corresponding to the chosen race. This slot represents the physical attributes and inherent abilities of the character’s chosen race. The “Race Soul” component, on the other hand, adds an additional layer of depth and customization. Each race has several soul variants, each offering a different colored slot for the “Race Soul.” These soul variants provide unique abilities and characteristics that further define and distinguish your character.

For example, when choosing an Angel character, a player can select from three soul variants: Cherub, Hallowed, and Seraphim. Each of these variants grants a different colored slot for the “Race Soul,” allowing players to tailor their character to their preferred playstyle and role within the team.

This flexible character creation system encourages creativity and experimentation, as players can mix and match race body and race soul options to develop a character that suits their individual preferences and strategies. The possibilities are endless, with each combination providing a unique experience and set of abilities to master on the roller derby track. Embrace the freedom of choice, and let your imagination run wild as you create your ultimate roller derby competitor.
