Racial Background

In SHIMMERING KINGDOMS, you have a wide variety of racial backgrounds to choose from. Most races have cultural sub-races which enable a rich plethora of choices for your character. A Racial Background must be chosen – a character can’t hail from no place and no culture. Whether you choose to make your choice an Aspect is up to you. However certain Occupations, Stunts, or Extras may require you to take an appropriate Racial Background Aspect in order to choose them. The list below is designed to help you determine your choice of the racial options for your character.
