    I was a-wondering as to which race would you be? I have collected a few races from the D&D ruleset and hopefully have most of them that will provide a good enough selection :)

    Oh yeah - if you vote you must reply with why ;)

    I'm Drow because that is what I'm most like *shrug* er, best I could think of, but perhaps go into more death ;)

    What the heck is an Alu-Fiend? :p

    I'd be a Githzerai because:

    a) Monk-ish lifestyle
    b) Psionics
    c) Sailing the Astral seas

    A wemic is kind of like a centaur, but with the features of a lion. Here's a pic:

    It's no good, I can't deny my clumsy human blood. Despite my fine elven ears, I'm 100% home-grown texan-style Homo Sapien. :(

    I am a human because:
    I don't have special abilities or other bonusses
    I don't have pointy ears
    I am blond, 188cm tall, green eyes, dark eyebrows
    I can adapt to most situations/people
    I breathe with my longues
    I don't have wings or scales
    etc.

    I'd like to be a half-elf or Aasimar (Clerics and Paladins).
    Or perhaps a Water Genasi, I like swimming in the rain and when I go to the toilet, I... oh, well...

    Hmmm - most assuredly a dwarf

    I am kind of short (but not halfling size).
    I am REALLY hairy - big beard and all!
    I have a short temper for flowery elves.
    I have always been a fan of battleaxes.
    And most importantly...

    I love a good frothy mug!! :xx:

    mmm I think elf suits me.

    Not tall, not hairy at all, quiet, swift... I think I only miss the pointed ears, and that's a little difficult to achieve without surgery :p

    [​IMG] What about class. Doesn't that reflect your style/personal a bit more.

    Example - The questionaire at the begining of Morrowind. That tells you what class best suits you from your answers.

    Plus, i can't relate to Race.

    I would have to be some kind of Thief, perhaps one that uses their abilities for some level of goodness.

    I'll be a...

    Human. :D :p

    Although one of my friends is a half-elf, I call him that, because he has half-pointy ears.

    I'd have to say that I'm an "Aasimar" because I'm a tall, heroic, charismatic human who calls God "Father" and Jesus "Big Brother" and is convinced that he is a solider in the Kingdom of God. (no really!) :good: :holy:

    On a lighter note ... if I'd have picked Dryad, would I get to hang out in the showers???? :love: :grin:

    First of all there is no such race as dragonian or whatever you called them. Dragons are all called DRAGONS!!! That is the name of the race.
    Anyway i would like to be a half-dragon(A by-product of a dragon taking a humans form and raping a woman of any other race such as human, sun elf etc.) Why?

    1)The abilitie to reach 30 in all stats or in any
    2)The super hard skin which will protect me against normal weapon
    3)The cool Dragomorth abilitie
    4)Spells both cleric and mage that dragons have(NOTE: Half-dragons get almost the same amount as dragons)
    5)The cool appearance
    6)I just like them too much

    Padeen "The Dragon" Dragonblade!
