In a recent post Waldgeist explains an issue with the Set server. Currently players can not create new characters on it so the feature has been disabled, but fear not. You can still use your already made characters until a fix is patched in.
Right now we are having issues with creating new characters on the Set server, that's why its disabled. Have no fear you will still be able to login and play with all existing characters.
We are working on the issue and it will be fixed asap so new characters will fill Tortage once more.
