Standing on average between 4’8” to 5’6”, Half-Dwarves retain the muscular stature of their Dwarven heritage. The barrel-like frame of the Half-Dwarf means their weight usually exceeds both of their parent’s averages at 180lbs to 240lbs. Skin tone, hair and eye colour tend to come from the Human parent with the grey and sandstone skin tones of the Dwarves rarely occurring amongst the mixed race. Hair and beards remain thick amongst the males, whilst females grow either very little or no facial hair.

Another week, another feature from us here at Critical Hits. This time, it’s a list of PC races and the attributes they are known for. This of course goes nicely with our feature on character classes when planning your next character. We only have one more idea for a feature for the time being… so […]

The book is full color, with at least one illustration of each race. The illustrations range from Poser/DAZ Studio characters with photoshop filters to colored, pencil art (without inking).
