Registration and Login
If you are a new player you can choose to play the game without registering an account. This option will automatically generate a guest account for you. In order to save the progress of your game however, you will still have to register your account at a later point in time. This will be triggered as a special part of the tutorial. The corresponding quest will ask you to choose a name and register your account.
