On the character creation page, is it possible to have an active character then make a new one to have in reserve (inactivated?). I’d experiment but don’t want to muck anything up.
Yes, in fact i have seen people advise to maybe have a backup (or 2) ready and written. This is so if your main character dies in play, you have something to look forward too that if you so choose, you can be ready to rock from the get go.
Although, i will admit anything around character death is really down to player preference. After the big battles, there can be quite a queue in GOD for the player PCs as people make a whole new character and decide what they want.
You can also only have one active character at any given time. You can choose to “retire” a character, but you cannot then play that character again.
