I'm still kinda new to all of this and am totally addicted to the game. I am currently playing with 4 characters (not sure if that's what I'm supposed to do but I'm kinda attached to them all now!)and just have a few questions I need help on. If these seem stupid or basic, apologies, but I just don't find any of the explanations for this game very easy to understand on the whole if you want to go further than the basic "create a character and get on with it" scenario.
1. Can you change the appearance of a character already created? If so, how?
2. I think everyone who is new is having a problem with the whole swop a pupil thing and there obviously seems to be problems with gaining experience points with this even if you do know what you are doing. Can someone help all of us plebs by trying to put this right once and for all?
3. How do I create a picture icon for myself in my profile? I've done it elsewhere but don't know how to do it here.
4. How far do I have to get in any of the tournaments I enter before I start to gain some sort of level?
5. Last but not least, can someone explain the point of joining a tribe of sorts? Do we gain anything from it? Does it mean we attack certain people en force or whats the deal? I just can't figure out the point. I'm also wondering how you can figure out who is the strongest or best tribe in existance - is there some sort of table format - and how do members of each tribe eventually communicate?
Sorry if any of these things have been covered elsewhere but I just can't find the answers I'm looking for and I just want to try and get as much enjoyment and competition from the game as I can.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help both me and any other confused people out there!!!
