Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

if you want it to be able to fly, fall, swim, crouch it must be a character but if want it only move and attack it can be a pawn .

it does not matter if it has 4 feet. you can have a character with 8 feet and 9 heads and 10 hands.

but I suggest you use character. :))))))

They can be both character and pawn. It depends on you. Make a bike to be a character then that bike will be able to jump swim crouch fall fly run walk and .....

Or even you can have a stone as a character then that stone will be able to fly swim jump fall walk run fly crouch.
