Picking your race is an important moment of your character creation of course. Here I want to introduce you to the races of Tylia in detail. Now, keep in mind – some may be a lot different from what you used to. Now without further ado, let’s begin this, shall we?


Humans

  • Average lifespan: 80 years
  • Average height: 176 cm (5' 9.3") males, 163 cm (5' 4.2") females
  • Skin colour: all shades of natural white
  • Hair colour: black, ginger and all shades of brown and blonde
  • Eye colour: black, all shades of brown, blue and green
  • Traits: Humans are just humans, there is nothing special or extraordinary about them. They will do good for any concept. They start the game without bonuses or penalties. Also, they are the most common and governing race in Tylia.
  • Health: const + 10
  • Religion: Faith of Ten


Elves

  • Average lifespan: 240 years
  • Average height: 166 cm (5' 5.5") males, 157 cm (5' 1.8") females
  • Skin colour: all shades of natural white.
  • Hair colour: black, ginger and all shades of brown and blonde
  • Eye colour: black, all shades of brown, blue and green
  • Traits: The elves of Tylia are very alike humans and not necessarily beautiful, graceful and/or radiant. They are lightly built with pointed ears and strange narrow facial structure, but their looks varies which depends on heritage. They aren’t magical creatures though they do have great potential to become shamans and healers. Thankfully to their small frames, elves of Tylia can also become great acrobats and performers. Appart from that, they can go for other professions and concepts, but keep in mind that they start with penalty on constitution and bonus on dexterity. To get an accurate age for your elvish character simply multiply their appearing age with 3. For instance, a 21 year old elf would look like a 7 year old child, but a 63 year old elf would look like a 21 year old man or woman.
  • Health: const + 8
  • Religion: Faith of Ten


Norn Humans

  • Average lifespan: 87 years
  • Average height: 182 cm (6' 0") males, 169 cm (5' 6.8") females
  • Skin colour: all shades of natural white.
  • Hair colour: ash blonde, silver, white.
  • Eye colour: gray, all shades of blue, violet.
  • Traits: Since their constitution hasn’t changed since the dawn of civilisation, they are mostly considered savages and monsters. Many grim stories about them flow throughout the land, mainly triggered by Sherar’s war against Yutri who resisted him for several years – years of hunger and despair in the North. However, just a note for those who consider playing them: they are far better disciplined than the hedonists of the south and sometimes even more civilised; they are educated and intelligent although the prejudice teaches us differently; they start with a bonus in constitution and penalty in dexterity. They are ideal for any profession, except those that need high dexterity.
  • Health: const + 12
  • Religion: Old religion.


Norn Elves

  • Average lifespan: 264 years
  • Average height: 176 cm (5' 9.3") males, 163 cm (5' 4.2") females
  • Skin colour: unnaturally white and gray
  • Hair colour: white, silver
  • Eye colour: very light silver, mostly white
  • Traits: They look very much like Norn Humans, and they don’t share a lot with their direct relatives, elves of the south. They kept pointed ears, however, smaller than their relatives’. They have a stronger constitution than elves of the south, and most of the humans of the south. Also, many stories follow these strange creatures of the Serpentis mountain chain, just like Norn Humans. Some of them are even true. Those who wish to start the game with Norn Elves have to know the following: they start with a penalty in charisma and appearance and bonuses in constitution and intelligence. Ideal concepts for Norn Elves are either fighters or anything that requires perfect phisical condition. However, they can also become great shamans, healers or scholars. To get an accurate age of a Norn Elf, do the same thing as for a regular elf, only multiply his appearing age with 3.3!
  • Health: const + 10
  • Religion: Old religion

By request:

Dwarves

  • Average lifespan: 160 years
  • Average height: 147 cm (4'10") both males and females
  • Skin colour: all shades of natural white
  • Hair colour: black, ginger and all shades of brown and blonde
  • Eye colour: black, all shades of brown, blue and green
  • Traits: Dwarves are known for their skill in engineering, technology and blacksmithing, their ability to withstand physical punishment, their knowledge of the earth's secrets, their hard work, and their capacity for drinking ale. They start with penalty in dexterity and charisma and with bonuses in constitution and intelligence. To get an accurate age for a dwarf, multiply his appearing age with 2.
  • Health: Const + 10
  • Religion: any but mostly Old Religion


Half-Elves

  • Half elves are a custom race and a half elf character can be made only by agreement between a player and a storyteller.

Nonplayable:

Cendri

  • Skin colour: darker shades of white, gray, brown.
  • Hair colour: black, all shades of brown.
  • Eye colour: black, all shades of brown, blue and green
  • Traits: Cendri are disfigured gigantic humanoid creatures with a huge penalty in intelligence. They are easily noticeable due to their gray to brown skin, lupine ears, lower canines resembling boar tusks, and their muscular builds. Cendri stand in a slightly bent over shape which makes them look even more grotesque
  • Religion: Faith of Ten
