We have our own set of races here at the Covenant, some of which may be unfamiliar to you. Technically, "race" is not the correct term; "species" is more accurate. But, given the common usage among MUDs of the term "race" we'll just go with that. (Actually, a taxonomist might tell you one of "class", "order", or "family" is the correct term, but that gets to be far too confusing!) To some extent, your choice of race will determine what sort of skills you are able to acquire.
The different races tend to be mixed throughout the world in varying proportions. There are few racial "homelands" as such, but in different areas different races will make up the majority of the population. There are no "good" or "evil" races. Individuals may be good or evil, but it would be grossly unfair to tar all members of a given race with the same brush.
The player races here are, in no particular order:
Human, Arial, Flint, Feryl, Agurimatsu (Guri), Kilgahar, and Fahrin
