 Cross-Class:                                                                                               

1. Appearance: 

What does your character look like? Consider things such as hair color, eye color, physical build, distinguishing traits, style of clothing. On the Races of Athalas page, you will be able to find description of a typical member of your race (or nationality).

Remember that your character's appearance is how they present themselves to the world. It might reflect his/her personality, or it might misguide whoever is looking at him/her to believe something about them that is not true.

It is a good idea to add little unique details that fit your character. For example, if you are a noble, you will probably have your family's insignia ring for marking wax seals on letters with and such, and your clothes will probably be something that really shows your status and wealth.

2. Equipment: 

Equipment is another thing that can set a character apart from others and it can add a lot to the character if he/she has some interesting accessories such as hats, jewelry, scarves, buckles, medallions, and if he/she has some items that aren't particularly valuable, but means a lot to the character.

Some characters might name their weapons, and or have a weapon specially crafted with carvings, pommels shaped like animal heads, etc.

Some characters travel light, others travel with a wagon full of adventuring supplies and various items looted from whichever dungeon they've explored last.

 

 Barbarians:                                                                                                

In many ways, barbarians in Kyrvaast are much like barbarians in most other fantasy settings, basically people who have grown up outside of civilization and have learned to survive in the world's less hospitable regions, people who live off the land, from what nature provides, who are used to dealing with the good and bad that nature has to offer, and to whom the monsters and beasts that people in civilized tell scary stories about, are very real and very present threats that they have had to learn how to deal with in order to survive their rough life. They are often treated as savages by more civilized folk, who usually easily recognize a barbarian just from the way he/she looks and is dressed, as that is what many people are taught.

1. Avoiding the Cliché: 

Some people think that Barbarians must be stupid belligerent brutes, but that does not have to be the truth.
