The Peasant in UnderMine, is the controllable Character the player uses to go on an adventure. When he arrives in the mine, he will meet Arkanos the Archmage, who wants to find out about the ongoing earthquakes and where the Blacksmith has disappeared to.
The player is always accompanied by his trusty familiar, who helps you in various ways on your journeys.
Character creation[edit | edit source]
There are three game save slots available, each with their own player character. After selecting "Play" from the main menu, the player can either select an existing game, if one exists, or start a new game, creating a new character. New characters are also created automatically after a character dies, and will receive half of the previous character's gold, unless a Sewing Kit or Sack Upgrades are acquired. Both the character name and the color of clothing, eyes, and hair are chosen at random.
Character names are created randomly by combining parts from the following lists:
|For a full list of combinations, see Peasant Names.|
After speaking to Arkanos in the Library, the player will be told to pickup their first Artifact, a journal, and cannot leave the Library until they have done so. During the game, the player can look up the peasant's stats in the journal, which contains information about his equipment, health, how much damage he can cause, his speed and his gold sack integrity. The player can open the journal by pressing Tab on their keyboard.
Peasant equipment[edit | edit source]
Peasant equipment can be upgraded at the price of gold at Wayland's shop.
Character death[edit | edit source]
Once a character's health is completely depleted, they will die and respawn in the Hub as a new character. They will keep their journal, but lose some of their gold unless they have a Sewing Kit, or they reached the end of the dungeons, which counts as a death. If the player speaks to Arkanos in the library again, he will offer some items in exchange for Gold. The NPC's will also then mention in the dialogue, that the player looks a little different.
