Humans are the predominant race in Faerun. Humans
rule most of the significant empires and kingdoms in the
Forgotten Realms. They are the most social and tolerant
of races, excepting perhaps the halflings. The only special
ability that humans possess is that they may advance as
- No Multi-Classing. Humans may not choose any of the multi-class
options available to other races.
- Dual-Classing. Humans above 1st-level can, as an option, choose to
abandon their first class to take up a second one. When a human does
this, they stop taking levels in their first class and temporarily forego
any abilities they may have gained from it, including spells and proficiencies.
These abilities are not recovered until the character's levels in
the second class exceed their levels in the first class.
- Thieving Abilities. Humans gain a +15 bonus to Pick Pocket, +10
to Open Lock and Move Silently, and +5 to Find Traps and Hide
