Races

From Unforgotten Realms Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A race within Unforgotten Realms Live is the species of a character that determines to some extent their appearance and personality.

History

Races have not always existed in their current form. During the Nuren Campaign players were allowed to choose any race, but were instructed to behave as if they were a Dwarf. Roamin's Band of Thieves introduced the first race cards, for Dwarves and Gnomes. Since then some new playable races have appeared.

Playable Races

These are races that have been available at character creation to play as in an official campaign. Each player race includes at least two sub-races, which further define a character's traits. A player's main race and sub-race each provide a specified amount of base stamina, as well as a unique ability.
