Before the discussion delves into the various races that populate the Primisti world, I want to break from the narrative about the game world and discuss some game theory. For me, the inclusion of Fantasy Races helps to create the High Fantasy atmosphere I strive to create in Primisti. They are non-human, but not in-human, since all of them are based on the Role Playing talents of players. There need to be various aspects of the races that a player can relate to.
The races in Primisti have a story based reason for being there. There won’t always be clear game mechanic reasons for playing one race over another. I strive for game balance, but I sometimes fudge that a little bit in favor of the world storyline. In the case of some races, when a player might not find a game mechanical reason for playing a given race, my advice is to look at the story.
