Unfortunately you can only skip it if you make it to a certain point in the game. In other words, make it to Land 2, that way when you restart, you can skip the tutorial and just choose your creature. I don't know what point you have to reach to allow it though... I think after finishing the creature tutorial. --- -Conan The Vegan
in order to skip the tutorial however you need to have patch 1.2 installed. after that you sit through the tutorial once and get to land 2 and any time you have a new game after that it should allow you to skip it.
