The world of The Source is home to a wide array of races. Each of these can have members be good, evil or somewhere inbetween. Each race has their own set of bonuses that may or may not be useful. They each have their own ancestral languages, but every player character race can at least speak one language in common with all of the others called Common. The details of how Common works are not explained here; but just trust me, it works. Unless specified otherwise, all races have no particular advantage or disadvantage in anything. Each race will have a +1 bonus to Charm when in a town assocaited with their species.
