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]

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
Black Boar Black Boars are Porcs with black hide that are much larger in height and weight, and are usually nine feet tall. Like Porcs, they are not usually very intelligent. [1]

Dwarf Dwarves are a race of short, bearded, human-like beings that build from stone and often are miners, searching for gold. [3]
Dwelf Dwelves are a hybrid race between Dwarves and Elves, but most integrate with Elves. Their physique is closer to that of an Elf, but they can grow facial hair like Dwarves. [4]
Elf Elves are much taller than Dwarves or Gnomes and possess an impressive affinity for magic. They rule over most of the lands, and have been around for longer than most other races. [5]
Gnome Gnomes are a race of beings shorter than Dwarves. They are very proficient with the usage of technology and love scavenging for treasures to wield. [6]
Keen Keens are a type of Gnomes that are the smallest people in the Realms, usually around two feet tall. [7]
Kobold Kobolds are furry, dog-like, humanoid creatures that often live in caves. They primarily eat gems, rocks and crystals, which makes them opposed to Dwarves, who spend their days mining the stones. Many Kobolds are known liars, leading to them being un-trusted by most other races. [8]
Porc Porcs are "orc-like", humanoid creatures that share physical similarities to pigs. They are born from purple goop that Porcs also use to digest their food. Porcs usually live in tribes, and value power to choose a leader and set one another apart. Most Porcs are also not that intelligent, so they may not be valued as highly by other races. [9]

Attributed Races[edit]

These are special characteristics that can be applied to any race that alters their physical appearance, or some of their backstory.
