Best way to decide what nation/character to build

Hi I’m looking to create a character and hopefully attend a game (bank balance/time/life permitting).
As an avid lover of fantasy, history, RPG games, I feel utterly spoilt for choice on what nation or faction to go for and what type of character to build as a result. (Empire should really release a quiz for indecisive morons like myself )
Any tips and tricks to narrowing down what to chooses.
If any factions want to just claim me and make the decision for me that would also be appreciated.


I think the smartest way to narrow it down if you really can’t decide is to either look at the archetypes and see if any of them really sing to you, find a group to join out of character and make a character to fit them, or see what kind of kit is most realistic for you to get a hold of and go for the most appropriate nation from there.

I did make a “what nation should I pick” quiz for fun, though, if you want to try it out.


Brilliant, thanks for the quiz was actually really useful and pointed me towards a nation I hadn’t really though of before.


So don’t leave us in suspence, what caught your attention? :slight_smile:


Yeah, enquiring minds want to know :smiley:.
