Dwarves with Weapon Proficiency: Martial receive Weapon Proficiency: Dwarf for free, which allows them to use Dwarven Waraxes.


Half-elves receive the Skilled feat, which grants 4 extra skill points at first level, plus 1 additional skill point at each following level.


Half-Orcs receive a passive racial ability called Ferocity. Once per day when a half-orc would be downed, they roll a number of d12s equal to their Constitution modifier and heal for that amount. This ability does not protect them from instant death effects.

The following subraces will be automatically applied if put in the character's subrace field, and require no special application:

Note that the noted ability score bonuses replace those given by the standard races entirely. For example, a Sun elf will not benefit from the +2 Dex bonus inherent to Moon elves.

Gold Dwarf +2 Con, -2 Dex
Sun Elf +2 Int, -2 Con
Wood Elf +2 Dex, +2 Str, -2 Int, -2 Con
Wild Elf +2 Dex, -2 Int

The default NWN elf is a Moon Elf, while the default dwarf is a Shield Dwarf.

Please note that Gnome and Halfling subraces are not currently available. The default NWN gnome and Halfling are assumed to be Rock and Lightfoot variants respectively.

While other races (and subraces) exist in the Forgotten Realms and our setting, they are not currently available to select for player characters on Cormanthor.
