Some of you may remember the days of yore when playing a non human race meant being restricted to a small selection of classes (and weird arbitrary level caps) or even more out of touch with modern day gaming, playing as a race specific class! While I really truly hated that convention as a kid I have found myself kind of wishing it would make a bit of a come back as I got older.
With the inclusion of the Runic Scribe in an official Unearthed Arcana article a few months back Prestige Classes are now “a thing” in D&D again. While they sort of more-or-less ruined 3rd edition, I am cautiously optimistic about their implementation in 5e. So optimistic I am using them as a platform to explore the idea of bringing back classes-as-races!
While the race that really sticks out to me for having its own playstyle has always been the elves I wanted to make dwarves first because they don’t get nearly as much love as they should. So check ’em out!
