We've got some kickarse community members here at Rend Forums, specifically @Yamakasi and @Roque Kazin who've put together some awesome guides for players looking to start getting into Rend (once the pre-alpha opens up a little more of course)
To start with, we've got an awesome overview of the Character Creation process:
Not forgetting guides on the Skill System:
The Mount System:
And last but by no means least, a guide on how to cut wood, one of the first things you'll want to do upon entering the world of Rend for the first time.
Any Rend Forum member can access and creates guides in the Guides section of the site, what's more, Guides are built as collaborative articles that anyone can contribute to, simply hit the big gold Edit button on a guide page.
I've got a ton more features planned to make this the best Rend resource on the net, please let me know if you've got any questions, suggestions or concerns!
