3:  Character Race and Gender
  Choose character race and gender.  If there's a problem, please let me know through this mailto form.All races recognized by the books listed under the material on class are available, provided that they are appropriate to the class or class combination chosen.  Races appropriate to each recognized class or class combination are listed with that class or combination, under "2  Choose a character class", and collected for reference; the racial advancement limitations should also be considered.  Character races are listed here, and described and defined on linked pages:

Human (Krynn, Occidental, Oriental, or Viking)
Dwarf (Hill, Mountain, Duergar, Krynn Hill, Krynn Mountain, Gully (Aghar))
Elf (Drow (Dark), Wild (Kagonesti), Gray, High (Silvanesti), Valley, Wood, Qualinesti, Dargonesti, Dimernesti)
Gnome (Surface, Svirfneblin, or Tinker)
Half-elf (Occidental, Krynn, or Drow)
Hengeyokai (Carp, Cat, Crab, Crane, Dog, Drake, Fox, Hare, Monkey, Raccoon Dog, Rat, or Sparrow)
Hobbit (Hairfoot, Stout, Tallfellow, Mixed, or Kender)
SpiritFolk (Bamboo, River, or Sea)

  Character race limits what classes or class combinations are available, and may also limit how far the character may progress in some or all classes.  Gender may also affect level progression.  House rules usually ignore racial and gender minimums and maximums for ability scores, except in regard to charisma and comeliness as initially rolled.

Collection of such pages as the much-praised Alignment Quiz, What is an RPG? (excerpted from Multiverser), the highly valued Confessions of a Dungeons & Dragons™ Addict, along with special rules and player aids in both written and computer formats, this site was highly praised by RAWS, linked by Gary Gygax, and is worth a look even if you don't like what you found here.

The best new role playing game....

The Multiverser Information Center
The complexity of creating a D&D character always reminds me of how much simpler it is to play
Multiverser®, the game which incorporates all other games, all other worlds, everything imaginable, with nothing else to buy.

A consideration of time travel....

Temporal Anomalies in Popular Movies
There are enough time travel films out there now that most of the things which could go wrong in time have been shown on the silver screen.  This page applies a new conception of how time works (discussed in the
Multiverser® game system to help referees sort out game scenarios in which player characters travel in time) to unraveling the most popular of such movies.  An Event Horizon Hot Spot and Sci Fi Weekly Site of the Week which has won the author national recognition as an authority on time travel in fiction.
