History[edit]

Races have not always existed in their current form. Band of Thieves introduced the first race cards, for Dwarves and Gnomes. Since then some new playable races have appeared.

Playable Races[edit]

Playable Races[edit]

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.

Playable Races of The Realms
Race Description
Dvergr Dvergrs are dwarves with the ability to turn into stone in a single instant.
Dwarf Dwarves are a race of short, mountain dwelling, human-like beings with very long lifespans.
Elf Elves are much taller than Dwarves or Gnomes and possess an impressive affinity for magic.
Dwelf Dwelves are a hybrid race between Dwarves and Elves, but they generally associate themselves with elves.
Gnome Gnomes are a race of beings shorter than Dwarves. They are very proficient with the usage of technology and other forms of treasure items.
Keen Keens are a type of gnomes that are the smallest people in the realms, usually around two feet tall..
Kobold Kobolds are short, furry creatures that live in caves. They primarily eat gems and crystals of low quality. They are also known for their dislike of Dwarves, and are known to lie on a normal basis.
Black Boar Black Boars are Porcs that are much larger in height and weight, and are usually nine feet tall. Like Porcs, they are not very intelligent.
Porc Porcs are Orc-like creatures that share physical similarities to pigs. They are born from purple goop that Porcs also use to digest their food. They don't normally discriminate between other races, but rather see all races as types of Porc, and usually use power to set one another apart. Most Porcs are also not that intelligent.
Greenskin Goblin Greenskins Goblins are small creatures, hated by Elves more than any other race. They are considered the "scum of the earth". They also possess the ability to protect themselves from mind control.
Hobgoblin Hobgoblins are normally larger than regular Goblins, but are hated by them and viewed even lower than them by elves.
Gobolf Gobolfs are creatures that are a mix of elves and goblins, but they are generally looked down upon by elves and are shunned from both elven and goblin society. The past of Gobolfs is quite unclear, as elves and goblins cannot breed, so it is unknown how Gobolfs came to be.
High Bear High bears are an extremely powerful and rare race. They place Honor and Family above all else, and view other races as inferior.

Attributed Races[edit]

These are races given to the players at random from Attribute cards. These races do not cancel nor alter the playable races a player picks at Character Creation. A player's attributed race does provide a specified amount of base stamina.

Attributed Races of The Realms
Main Race Description
Ageless The Ageless are a group of Skeletal creatures created through Death Magic rituals. Being an Ageless makes one nearly immortal. Dvergr Dvergr Dwarves cannot become Ageless, as their skeletons are made of stone.
Believer Believers are a group of Arcane beings who possess books and become characters from those books.
Vampire Vampires are people who are in constant search for their soul mate and can see through the lies of others.

Creature Races[edit]

These are races that only NPCs have existed as. Some creature races may be made into playable races in the future.
