What sort of races are there in Age of Conan? Edit
In Age of Conan the three nations that are planned for launch are Aquilonia, Cimmeria and Stygia. You will be able to explore these lands and meet their people, but on your travels you will also meet a myriad of other people from all over Hyboria.
What races can we play? Edit
What? No elves, dwarves or gnomes? Edit
None! Hyboria, the world of Conan, is not your typical fantasy world of orcs and fairies. There are certainly a myriad of mystical creatures, terrible monsters, exotic races and mighty gods, but you will not find all the typical high-fantasy elements. One term often used to describe the world of Hyboria and its setting is “magical realism." The world is gritty, harsh and real, but is still filled with magical locations and fantastic beings.
Will the races have any advantages or disadvantages? Edit
Yes. The three playable races have their strengths and weaknesses, and some of them are better fit to certain classes than others. The Cimmerians, for instance, are known for their skill with the blade, while the Stygians are renowned for their magical powers. Selecting one races will have implications towards how the game will play out for you, not only when it comes to the look of your character, but also what choices will be available to you.
Will one race be more evil than the others? Edit
No, there are no playable “evil” races in Age of Conan. But, of course, every people have its bad apples and there are plenty of no-good characters in all the lands of Hyboria. And one nation's opinion on another can also differ greatly – so who is to decide who is good and who is evil?
Will there be any power differences between male and female players? Edit
No, in Age of Conan both men and women have equal strengths.
