I'm playing on the XBox and I'd like to play two characters to experience different storylines and see how different races play.

Is this possible? I'd hate to have the saves of one character override the saves of another!

Quick and autosaves will overwrite each other, manual saves will not (unless you choose to save over another save).

You could try creating a separate account to play the other character, but I have no idea what would happen then.

Has anybody tried this? If so, please let us know what happens. – SnookerFan Sep 11 '13 at 13:25

When you "switch" between characters, make sure that when you save the camera shows the face of your character, and maybe some representative background. This way, you can easily tell to which character the save belongs and reduce the risk of accidentally overwriting the wrong file.
