So I was wondering if anyone else played as a standard sort of race. Doesn't really matter what class, you just try and use the same race all the time.

Personally, I go for the half-elf.

i think it may go back to BG1, where Gorion said that your mother was his 'sometime' lover. I could never really picture the old guy with a dwarf or something

I can't stand to be any other class than human. I don't know what it is, I just don't like being portrayed as some midget elf/dwarf/halfling

If I want to play as a fighter, I go with a dwarf. For other classes, I generally stick to humans.

I know an Elven Sorcerer is better... but I have always chosen Human.

Human all the way, even if some races are better at humans at cretain classes, I cant stand not being a human, occasinly I sink as low to being a half elf, but even that is very rare. But in NwN you can have any class for any race, so I'm going to experment with that ome, GNOMISH PALADIN BABY! YEAH!

I'm an elf, always. Only sometimes, when the -1 constitution REALLY hurts, will I be a half-elf. Or if I want to play a paladin, for instance, I will (kicking and screaming) consent to play as human. But otherwise elf all the way for me!
