Auld is a world inhabited by Faerie, Humanoids, and aberrations of both. Choose from 50 Playable Races. Some races/species start with innate abilities and flaws, so consider what type of style you want to play when creating your character.(Your hideous Troll might not make the best Bard, while a Kenku's Birdsong would be a huge advantage.)
Magic is fairly commonplace here so it takes a powerful magic user, or Runestone item wielder, to stand out as a Hero of Auld. Runestones are crystaline gems that can absorb, store, and emit magical energy. By etching magical runes onto them, they can be imbued with specific spells or traits. Runesmiths have learned to use Runestones to imbue items and weapons as well. Choose your Runestone Weapon or Item during character creation. Everybody gets ONE!
