The Races of Avlis
Human, elf, dwarf, gnome, halfling, half-elf, half-orc: these are typical player character races in D&D and are the races NWN allows you to play. All of these races exist on Avlis, in addition to many, many more, some of which you can select as the race of your character.
While some of the races are identical to the descriptions laid out in D&D game literature, most are slightly different. They are... well, they are Avlissian. And there are some races that do not exist in D&D at all. All of these races have unique developments in accordance with the history and culture of Avlis.
