Howdy, and welcome to Engi!

The best place to start is the RPG Handbook, but you might want to get yourself inside the Discord and introduce yourself there.

There's plenty of mechanics to learn when you're navigating the site but I assure you most of the confusion is frontloaded! It's a relatively freeform system and there's plenty of opportunities to make your own mark on the world. Don't be afraid to ask any questions if you run into any snags.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I was thinking about my character, I have question, can I start creating my character at this instant, or is there certain requirements for making your character?

There's a section for Unfinished characters. A lot of people find it helpful to jot down their ideas and have a place to easily make edits and formatting before they get embedded into the registry process.

Requirements vary wildly based on the character type (shinobi, samurai, etc...) and the country they come from. For your first character, you tend to want to shy away from clan characters (of which there are limited numbers of) or high level forces (such as Jounin or Special Forces), because they carry a certain in and out of game responsibility that might be overwhelming for a newer player.

But really, you should try and make whatever you want. The system is intentionally flexible.

By Clan Characters, you mean like Canon bloodline names like Hyuuga and Uzimaki? So what I’m getting from that is that i have to make up a last name? Correct me if I’m wrong

Yes. For instance, the Hyuuga clan is currently closed (at least the last time I checked) and there's never been an Uzumaki in the Engi canon (as far as I'm aware).
