Shadowrun Returns: Races
  Dwarves

Dwarves are the shortest of the metahuman races. To compensate, their torsos and shoulders are wider than their size would indicate. Thus their strength is equal to, and sometimes greater than, the larger races. A side effect of their metahuman nature is increased resistance to pathogens and magic that attacks from within.

Bonus:
  • +1 Willpower
Maximum Stats:
  • 11 Body
  • 9 Quickness
  • 12 Strength
  • 9 Charisma
  • 9 Intelligence
  • 11 Willpower



  Elves

Many people, especially other metahuman races, see elves as the most fortunate metahumans. They are more attractive and socially acceptable than the other metahumans. Elves are taller than humans but have a more slender build. Their hair is usually thicker, longer, and more luxurious than average and their ears come to a point.

Bonus:
  • +1 Charisma
Maximum Stats:
  • 9 Body
  • 11 Quickness
  • 9 Strength
  • 12 Charisma
  • 9 Intelligence
  • 9 Willpower



  Humans

Humans were the only race on earth until the Awakening in 2012. Now they find themselves the definition of average or even normal. They are still the most populous race in world and thus control many of the most powerful, monied, and important positions in society.

Bonus:
  • +3 Karma Points
Maximum Stats:
  • 9 Body
  • 9 Quickness
  • 9 Strength
  • 9 Charisma
  • 9 Intelligence
  • 9 Willpower



  Orks

Orks are the fastest-breeding race and now are second only to humans in world population. Their size leads to an intimidating silhouette and a body that can take more physical damage than the average. Orks have pointed ears and intimidating teeth or tusks.

Bonus:
  • +1 Body
Maximum Stats:
  • 14 Body
  • 9 Quickness
  • 12 Strength
  • 8 Charisma
  • 8 Intelligence
  • 9 Willpower



  Trolls

Trolls are the largest metahuman race. Heavy prejudice against them has led people to assume trolls have lowered intelligence but in reality, there is no proof to this. Trolls have pointed ears, intimidating teeth or tusks and many have horn-like growths that other metahumans do not manifest.

Bonuses:
  • +1 Body
  • +1 Strength
Maximum Stats:
  • 17 Body
  • 8 Quickness
