I installed the Linux .deb file, ran it and it works until the character screen. You hit play and it asks you to make a character...with no option to do so? What am I missing here, really unclear.
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Illarion - Carve yourself a new life
Illarion is an online game where genuine role playing is enforced. The main design principle is a focus on the interaction with other players. All the player characters you will encounter during your time here are living, breathing inhabitants of the mysterious world of Illarion. Each character has its own past, goals, strengths, flaws and personality. Experience glorious adventures as noble knight or live the life of a hardworking craftsman, acquisitive merchant or charismatic priest of the gods.

The World Illarion
A mature high fantasy setting where elves meet orcs is placed in a persistent, open world with tangible lore. Sixteen gods are worshipped by the citizens of three factions. Noble Cadomyr, wealthy Galmair or wise Runewick - whose side will you join?
The decisions you take will impact and shape the world around you. Your actions will determine the events that one day fill the pages of Illarion's history books. Immerse yourself and let your character become what you want.
Free and open source
Illarion is free to play without any cost. The game is run by a non-profit organisation and is maintained by a staff of highly motivated volunteers without financial reimbursement. The client, server and game code is open source and released under the licences GPLv3 and AGPLv3.
Your character won't be locked inside a fixed class design like most MMORPGs do. You'll be able to sculpt your own character and its destiny is limited only by your choices, imagination, and game rules. The game features a skill-based levelling system, allowing players to compel their own unique gaming experience.
The game mechanics employed keep the balance between complexity, innovation and motivation of players. Illarion shows a classic, slow-paced gameplay with isometric retro graphics while still using modern technologies.

You are fully right! It is unclear how to create a character if you downloaded the game from a site like itch.io. You need to register at https://illarion.org/community/account/us_register.php first. On that website, you can also create your character.
I did register for an account, didn't see any option to make a character. Can't log back in, as apparently my login is wrong even though it was saved in a password manager when made...
This does have the potential to be a very good game but it's strengths are also it's weaknesses.
It is great that there are no limits but without limits it is hard to be relevant.
Everyone can be a top fighter... Everyone can also be a master craftsman and gatherer and magician and explorer.
Everyone can do pretty much everything which means that those at lower levels are irrelevant to those at higher levels (i.e. the ones with money).
With that said, the development of this game is fairly active and the players that do play really care about the game.
Thank you for showing points that need to be improved. We have discussed the topics brought up by you and also ran a profound analysis of player inventories. If you pass by our discord server (https://discord.gg/yj3htPN), please send me a message @Estralis so we can discuss directly what you would improve and how.
Thats from beore indie-games were cool!
I have seen this game different stages of developement, and they managed to mantain awesomeness since the early starting years of the game, thanks to a very strong and caring staff team, that genuinly cares for Roleplay and caters for that, first!
I got this error:
[EDIT]: Fixed by running the file from the file location, instead of the itch client
So excited to play this game! Looks great.
