Fantasy Races

The common fantasy races are:

  • Humans
  • Elves
  • Dwarves
  • Halflings
  • Gnomes
  • Orcs (and their kind)

Humans are considered the default, and an adult human has an average score of 3 in all their attributes. Other races purchase different attributes are different costs. So Strength is more expensive for a halfling, whilst Health is cheaper for a dwarf.

Some races may have special abilities, such as resistances to disease, the ability to see well in the dark or modifiers or limits to virtues.
