    I always play as a human. Don't know why, it's just my preference.

    I usually play as a human, but I play as an elf quite often too. But my absolute favourite is a human kensai with no other equippment than a normal, unenchanted katana!

    Does it take two 1/2 elves to make a full one? :D Maybe that's why one is inferior to the other...

    I play humans more than any other race.

    Elves!

    I just finished SpellHold and found out Irenicus and Brodi are elves.

    What a stain on Elvenkind! :almostmad:

    I prefer playing a human personality. I think it's well balanced. Not to many merits, and also not too many flaws

    What a about Halfling! They my favorite, they are sneaky and full of ressource and...small... but odly enough I don't like to play them in BG1-IWD1-BG2-TOB since their sprite are absolutly ugly, in their next Game they should done a good halfling sprite , not those fat heiry foot, that's a HOBBIT...

    I always play as an elf, for some reason. I suppose I prefer being the mysterious, almost magical creature of grace rather than a normal old human! They just seem right for the ranger/thief roles I always play as.

    Hmm, when I play a male protagonist I always choose human or 1/2elf. My female protagonists are all elves.

    1/2elfs are my favorite race, guess why?

    In a way, you couldn't actually be a full human, elf, or anything else for that matter.

    [​IMG] I like humans and half elves. I generally go for the half elves though, because I like the idea of being human but having some divine elvish blood flowing through the veins.
