Races of the Westerlands
The “Civilized” races of this campaign include the core races from the D&D rulebooks. There are also certain monstrous races who occasionally play a productive role in the societies of the realms. However, such characters are the exception and often hail from distant lands.
A word on racial disposition and alignment: While the core rulebooks assign standard alignments to monstrous races, I have chosen to take the position that, while the societal values of such races are often directly at odds with the standards of the humanoid civilizations, it is more interesting to allow as much variety in a monstrous individual’s disposition as is common among the standard PC races.
