You are limited to a total of 5 characters per account, of which only 2 can be childspawns. Adults will spawn in a location where random members (at least 3) of their race exists, they will avoid locations with their own characters and any characters of avoided accounts, and if there are no viable locations they will fall back to spawning in the wilderness, potentially alone.

Spawning an Adult

To spawn as an adult, click the New Character card and select "I prefer to begin life as an adult." You will then be able to browse races available for selection either by clicking on their picture or selecting the race name from the dropdown menu. After filling out the details of your upcoming character, selecting "this is my chosen form" will spawn the character into the world instantly - no backstory is allowed, they appear suddenly automatically at age 18 mentally and physically. Spawning is set to locations with three or more of your chosen race present, unless another of your characters is at that location, or if you have avoidance set. If there are no viable spawn points based on normal criteria, they will spawn in the wilderness, potentially alone. You should never spawn a character where you already have a character - if this happens you need to notify staff as it will be a bug and either make the spawn leave the area, or have one of the characters hibernate until one of them can leave.

Spawning a Child

To spawn as a child, select "I would like to experience childhood". Then select their race and gender. After that, your account will be put into a line to be matched with upcoming parents (See Queue for more information on how this works). As soon as this happens, your character will be spawned into the location of those parents at the age of five. As a child character, you do not get to name yourself - your mother will name you after you spawn. Child characters can change their own name at age 18. You are required to make an adult for your first character.

Shortages

Sometimes a message could be shown in the character selection screen, stating that there is a shortage of child characters to a certain race. This means that there are more pregnant mothers than children waiting to spawn. Spawning a child when demand is high does not mean that the child will spawn immediately. It may be up to a two day wait, and even after two days, the child will only spawn if they are next in line. If someone supplied the demand before you, then your child may have to wait a little longer.
