The Races of Utopia
One of the most intriguing features of the Utopian world is the diverse creatures that inhabit its lands. While many creatures live amongst the woods and seas of the world, only a few live in societies, in communities which you can lead. There are currently eight Utopian races - you will be required to choose one upon signing up. Their individual characteristics are described below.
The Role of Personalities
Your Utopian Race defines some of the fundamental strengths and weaknesses of your province. However, your background also plays a part in how your citizens grow and learn. When you create your account, you will also select from one of eight Personalities, each with unique benefits. This further defines the basics of your province. You can select a Personality to help further develop a strength of your race or possibly counter a weakness. Your strategy is up to you.
The Role of Race & Personality
FOR NEW PLAYERS: The combination of race & personality you choose will guide how you play the game. The first time you play, it is probably best to pick a combination that seems to complement each other - for example, a race and personality that are good at Magic. As you gain more experience in the game, you will better understand the benefits and drawbacks to various combinations. Do not worry if you make a less-than-ideal selection, as your first exposure to Utopia will serve as a learning experience for the future.
