Playable Races

Shadowgate allows players to become one of a large number of races, all of which bear a variety of ethos and abilities to help shape the character. All standard races/subraces are available on creation, but level-adjusted creatures can only be played by request. Beast races, and those of naturally evil inclination, should be carefully considered before play, as they will encounter many challenges (vision, language communciation, and general lack of acceptance in most civilized areas) beyond those of surface races. Also, large-size races may find equipment more difficult to find than other characters.

Any races not listed in one of the categories below, are not currently open to play, and will only be encountered in the game as coded creatures or plot NPCs.
