Character creation follows a pretty typical pattern. Each character has an Origin, a Class, and various character [[trait]]s.

Splinter races are defined by the use of Species Feats, such as Elemental Heritage denoting a special affinity with earth, water, wind, fire, or some other element, or the Hill-Born feat, which turns a standard, or mountain, [[dwarf]] into a hill dwarf.

''Fantasy Craft'' somewhat resembles [[d20 Modern]] in that the classes are not strongly tied to a specific background or vocation,but rather a specific style, role, or realm of ability.
