How do you decide on a race?
First of all, you should look at the appearance. You will have to look at your character for many hours during the game, so pick one which you like the look of. The character will be your representative in the game and it is great when you like how it looks. The second important parameter, is your desired class. Some races are better for warriors, others, are better for mages. Every race has its advantages and disadvantages. Racial bonuses can aid you greatly in the game. Here is a small tip: choose a class first and then find a race for your class.
