Race Descriptions

This chapter holds the descriptions of the races which are available to be used as player characters, non-player characters, or opponents in battle. Each of the entries is in the same format, to make it easy to find the information you need.

These pages include the following information:


While the game makes no distinction between male and female characters, the players may wish to take certain tendencies into account.

Among most humanoid races, the strongest males are stronger than the strongest females, but females exhibit a higher average endurance and intuition. Males are also taller and heavier on average. The other attributes are fairly even. These differences, however, are not as pronounced as they once were, and there is a continuing trend towards equality.

Among many species of birds the males are brightly coloured, in order to attract mates, while the females are much more blandly coloured, so that they blend into their surroundings while they are hatching their eggs.

Similarly, little or no distinction is made between the numerous species which make up the various races, although there are differences there as well.

Eastern Asian humans are often slightly shorter and darker skinned than their counterparts from northern Europe, but are taller and lighter skinned that the extremely short African pygmies.

There are hundreds of species of dogs, cats, birds, fish, spiders, etc. Clearly, a chihuahua will have a much lower strength than a bulldog. However, to undertake to describe all of these individually is the job of encyclopaedias, not a role-playing game. We will make note of some of the more common or representative species, but it is up to the player and GM to determine the exact statistics of any species we do not explicitly cover.

Your characters will seem more realistic and alive if you take these tendencies into account when creating a character.
