I have to admit, I don't have enough information to make a faq-ish OP, but I can say a few things.
Humans, Orcs, Elves, Dark Elves, and Dwarves. Your races.
Two starting class choices, to my knowledge, "fighter" and "mystic", which then become more specialized as you level and make decisions about where to go. (Like EQII)
The artwork is accused of being anime style, but I'd say it's really more Final Fantasy style, it seems like most of the animations and the interface are done well, and the game has a fairly large playerbase. (Around 1.5 million)
Do we have any players here? Any PA guilds?
