CHARACTER RACES

There are six races from which you may construct your player character (PC). Each race has different talents and limitations. The "Range of Ability Scores by Race and Maximum Level Limits" article summarizes the abilities and class limitations for the different races.

Non-human characters can combine character classes and may also have additional special abilities.

Dwarves Dwarves are a cunning race of sturdy workers and craftsmen. They are especially resistant to magic and poison. During combat, Dwarves receive bonuses when attacking man-sized giant-class creatures and are adept at dodging the attacks of larger giant-class creatures. Dwarves can be fighters, thieves, and fighter/thieves.

Elves Elves are a tall, long-lived race. They are nearly immune to sleep and charm spells and are adept at finding hidden objects. During combat, Elves receive bonuses when attacking with swords and bows. They cannot be raised from the dead. Elves can be fighters, magic-users, thieves, fighter/magic-users, fighter/thieves, magic-user/thieves and fighter/magic-user/thieves.

Note: To further game play, no Race is permanently killed in Neverwinter Nights.

Gnomes Gnomes are shorter and slimmer than their Dwarf cousins. They are especially resistant to magic. During combat, Gnomes receive bonuses when attacking man-sized giant-class creatures and are adept at dodging the attacks of larger giant-class creatures. Gnomes can be fighters, thieves, and fighter/thieves.

Half-Elves Half-Elves are hybrids with many of the virtues of both humans and elves. They are resistant to sleep and charm spells and are adept at finding hidden objects. Half-elves can be fighters, magic-users, clerics, thieves, rangers, cleric/fighters, cleric/rangers, cleric/magic-users, fighter/magic-users, fighter/thieves, magic-user/thieves, cleric/fighter/magic-users, or fighter/magic-user/thieves.

Halflings Halflings are about half the size of a human, hence their name. They are especially resistant to magic and poison. They can be fighters, thieves, and fighter/thieves.

Humans Humans are the most common player-race in the Forgotten Realms. They suffer no level racial limitations or abilities modifiers. They can be fighters, magic-users, clerics, thieves, rangers, paladins, and dual-class characters.
