The Create-a-Sim screen appears every time you create a new kingdom. The look of each character it's up to you, and they can be male or female. The CAS works like The Sims 3, but the look is definitely medieval-ish.
You can start from scratch creating a new Sim or editing one of the pre-made characters the game offers.


The first thing you have to do is choosing a name and a surname, voice, body shape (muscles and weight) and a skin color for your Sim. Age is not selectable, as you can create only adults in CAS. There is a slider called “Age modifier”, however, that allows you to change your Sims' skin, giving him/her an older/younger look.

There are also babies and children, but they are born only in the game and cannot be created in CAS.
There isn't makeup, as it would be quite unlikely for a game set in the Middle Ages, but there is a slider that allows you to change the complexion of your Sim, increasing or decreasing the redness of the cheeks and other areas of the face.
Everything described so far, as well as the face features editors, allows you to create realistic characters, even more than The Sims 3 – and, if you want so, even resembling yourself or your friends.

A small fact: you can create pointed ears!
The gorgeous outfits of the time are customizable with the Create a Style tool.
There are no different categories, but Sims wear a nightgown when they go to sleep. Of course, you can change your character's look while you play.
Both the hairstyle (with or without crowns and other hats) and the clothing vary according to the hero you're playing with. Some hairdos are really elaborate, with jewels.


But that's not all folks! In order to create a personality for your Sim, you have to choose two traits and a fatal flaw. I'll explain in details during the next chapters of this column..
