or just pick a race that looks cool and roll with it?
reply to patrick: well you could still have tutorials for each character but give the player the ability to skip it... i personally tend to skim through things a bit too much so the option to repeat the tutorial to quickly check some info would be nice... or even just having the option to play a tutorial as a set in stone junk character who does not carry into your list of characters. so you click play tutorial and even though you created a beaken you are now playing a warforged fighter for the length of the tutorial.
i would love the option to either purchase or just play as a Reaver or a Paladin class
Reaver = sacrifices health to deal increased damage.
paladin = deals slightly less damage and heals
