Race

Players can choose from the following player races.

Humans

Humans are the ruling race of the Kingdom of Catreath, and the majority of those who live in the kingdom are human. Human society is feudal in style, and is both sexist and racist. Humans hold all important positions within society, and only humans can be noble.

Anyone may play a human.

High Elves

High Elves are the most aloof of the elvish races. They are the guardians of elvish language and culture, and tend to consider themselves a superior race. They are known to dwell in the North in their cities there, into which no race but elves are permitted. They are very long-lived, and some believe them to be undying. High Elves are rare in Catreath.

High Elves must be tall and slender in build, with pointed ears and no facial hair. They are subject to very strict cultural rules.

Wood Elves

Wood Elves are more numerous and accessible in Catreath than their High Elven cousins, though they are far from common. They are a nomadic people, moving through the forests of Catreath and beyond. They are, like High Elves, very long-lived.

Wood Elves must have pointed ears and no facial hair, but may have any build.

Half Elves are the children of an elf and a human. They are shunned by both societies, and if discovered for what they are can be social pariahs.

Anyone may play a half elf. They may have pointed ears, but do not have to.
