Chapter 2
Step 2: Race


You chose a race for your hero in the last step, but now it's time to attach the mechanics of the chosen race to your hero. A race provides advantages and disadvantages in the form of Racial Adjustments (RAs), and potentially also Features (see Step 10, below).

Humans as we know them have no RAs, but other races might.

Single Race:

  • A +2 bonus in one Core Ability, or a +1 bonus to two Core Abilities.
  • A +1 bonus to one War Ability.
  • A -2 penalty to one Core Ability, or a -1 penalty to two Core Abilities.
  • A -1 penalty to one War Ability.

Hybrid Race (two races):

  • A +1 bonus to one Core Ability appropriate to one of the races.
  • If desired, a +1 bonus to one War Ability appropriate to one of the races. But if this bonus is taken, the penalty below must also be taken.
  • A -1 penalty to one Core Ability appropriate to one of the races.
  • If desired, a -1 penalty to one War Ability appropriate to one of the races. But if this bonus is taken, the bonus above must also be taken.
