Common Races

Common Races are typically the foundational races that form the backbone of many adventuring parties. Each common race has its own distinct characteristics, abilities, and cultural backgrounds, allowing players to create diverse and unique characters.
Vidal is not a worldly place, hence some races* might not be present as it would be rather difficult for them to survive.
*Some races might be added in future depending on demand.
