Good Player Races of FieryMud


Ne'er seen one before eh? Try using a mirror ya bloody oaf! The most predominant race by far, they are crafty and cunning, as they are greedy and unwittingly bent on self destruction. Many of the more "older" or longer living races often view them as foolish children, with their petty squabbles. Well-rounded for any class or occupation are they, and humans can be found throughout the known world as merchants, traders, soldiers, and pilgrims, and oftentimes in tribal cultures, as well as holding various social ranks in larger cities. They hold better overall ability scores than other races.


Belonging to the primitive culture, they possess rudimentary skills and simple manufacturing techniques. They excel in brute combat and fight with uncanny vigor and frenzy, moreso towards unfamiliar spellcasters alike. Barbarians are also adept at surprising opponents have an exceptional endurance for even the most extreme of conditions.


Cousin to the dwarves, they resemble them as small, thin, and nimble kin. Noticeably though, Gnomes tend to keep their beards shorter and stylishly-trimmed and they take pride in their enormous noses (often twice the size of any normal human or dwarf's). their skin is usually a dark tan to woody brown, often with hints of gray, startling to pale-blue eyes and sandy-pale hair. Millennia of underground dwelling have given them excellent vision in the dark and their keen intelligence make them a cunning adversary.


Being of human stock, half-elves have features and benefits of both their human and elven parents. Their height usually ranges higher and heavier than common elves, growing as tall as 5½ feet and weighing up to 150 pounds. Prejudice plays an influential role to half-elves, as they are often seen as "half breeds" and outcasts from elven society.


Similar to humans though diminutive in size, halflings average about 3 feet in height, with ruddy complexions, sandy to dark brown hair, and blue or hazel eyes. Commonly, their attire is often colorful but serviceable, with a liking towards stylish caps and tunics.

Mountain Dwarf

The most noble race of demihumans, they dwell deep inside the earth, forging great cities and waging massive wars against the forces of chaos and evil. Dwarves have much in common with the rock and gems they love to work—both hard and unyielding, they are renowned for their sturdy constitution and bullish stubbornness as much as their long beards and mustaches. Commonly stocky and muscular, they range from about four to four-and-a-half feet in size. Their skin is typically tan to a light brown, and they have ruddy cheeks and bright eyes.
