By being you, you are able to become what you aren't. Want to become a king of a far-off province? or become a Don? done and done. Put in the work and you may get more out of it than what you bargained for.
You can begin by saying the name of your character and describing their general appearance. Everyone begins as a human.
This is an old fantasy world, but technology of the future seeps through rifts in space.
There is more to becoming God-like then being idle.
