Please let us make our own characters =]

Honestly, this game is really exciting and I understand the idea behind Solasta creating their own character archetypes, etc.

I can only hope that character creation is robust and we aren't stuck on guide rails when building a character. If I want a 2h greatsword wielding dragon sorceress that shoots lighting out of her fingertips before charging headlong into melee range... then please, just let me do it, lol.

I realize many games exist that allow this, but Solasta actually has excellent graphics, character design, and atmosphere.

I love the idea of prestige classes and any chance to avoid having only a few "meta" builds is a godsend. More choices and how those choices interact help create a game with infinite replay-ability that can generate a loyal fan base with youtubers, streamers, etc. This is how a strong IP foundation is built for the long run.

You have to keep in mind that Solasta's ruleset is based on SRD 5.1, so prestige classes simply don't exist. For release we've planned 3 archetypes per class available (6 at launch), but more may be added later in DLCs (no promise though).

You're right I completely overlooked this! Either way I'm excited about the game.
