There are ten playable species in the game, though more can easily be added. These include:
Human – Your typical you and me human, diversified a little less than those here on Earth.
Elf – True forest-dwellers, with a slight green tone to their skin, about 4 1/2 feet tall.
Gnome – Short (3’) forest-dwellers who are adept at not being seen.
Sprite – About 6" tall, with flight. Not typically a species who gets into physical fights.
Brownie – About a foot tall, much like the Brownies from Willow.
Centaur – Half man, half horse. Northern and southern varieties, with drastically differing outlooks.
Lizarrd – About 4’ tall lizard like creatures with huge fangs. One of the few true natives to the planet.
Slith – Snake men, about 7’ tall. They have no legs, eyelids, or vocal chords. Brutal.
Da’chk – Really big insects, much like a mantis. Peaceful and intelligent.
Saurian – Evolved from Troodon dinosaurs through multiple world-hopping portals.
Each of these species has its own outlook on the world, the way it uses and views magic, Deities, political views, etc., though an individual is certainly not bound by these stereotypes.
