Common

  • Human
  • Changeling
  • Dwarf
  • Elf
  • Half-Elf
  • Gnome
  • Halfling/Hobbit

Description:
Human – The most plentiful race in Khorvaire. Humans run the gamut of alignments and personalities.
Changeling – Descendents of doppelgangers, most changelings focus on fitting into society. Changelings cannot change their gender, one of their only weaknesses. Wherever society is, there are changelings.
Dwarf – Creatures of earth, as hardy as stone. Female dwarves are sometimes called Miner Elves, because of their deceptive slender appearance. Nonetheless, female dwarves do not count as fey creatures. Dwarves are everywhere in Khorvaire, but their ancestral homelands are the Mror Holds.
Elf – Slender and agile people that tend to be more at home in nature. Elves are everywhere in Khorvaire, integrated into society. Valenar is an elven nation, founded by warseeking mercenary groups from Aereni. Elves generally cannot grow additional body or facial hair, and if they do, it is light.
Half-Elf – More plentiful than elves in Khorvaire.
Gnome – A short race of tricksters, skilled in illusion magic and stealth. They are integrated into society, but their homeland is in Zilargo.
Halfling – A shorter race of clever and witty people. The racial stereotype includes both hospitality and minor larceny. Halflings are everywhere in Khorvaire, though there is a large concentration of them in the Talenta plains. There is a large difference between halflings in tribes and cityfolk.
