Perfect choice if you want a Knight or Warrior that can use a bit of magic.

* Additional +1 MP (Magic Point) per level.

Subraces

Each race is further divided into subraces. For example, Elves can be Wood Elves, High Elves, or Grey Elves. A character gets all perks and penalties of the selected race and subrace.

 

Each subrace has at least one (up to three) perk affecting attributes (+1 Attribute X every Y levels) and usually another perk such as a bonus to maximum encumbrance, inborn resistance or immunity, etc. Inborn resistance and immunities are marked with “*” on the character screen.
