Some characters and races may be uniquely affected by the Convergence world or born different from their kind. Archetypes let players further customize their characters to create new types of characters or play as commonly accepted types.

Archetypes represent additional makeup, and additional benefits and disadvantages. While the player’s Guide contains information regarding established societies whose members are connected by particular combinations, players are encouraged to explore combinations to create the character they want to play.

Players may start a character with an Archetype or add one to their character at any time, however once a character has an Archetype, it cannot be removed.
