Mystic Adventures has more than 60 races. Players have a choice of both their main and subrace. Main races include Human, Elf, Dwarf, Gnome, Halfling, Merfolk, Minotaur, Ogre, Orc, Sprite, Troll, Giff, Gnoll, and Lizard man

The following information is also contained in the online race help file. You can see it while playing by typing HELP NEWRACE. It should give you enough information to pick a race and subrace. Before you actually start playing though, it would be a good idea to create a level 1 character and use the SLIST and PLIST commands to see what has changed with the older classes and new races.

## Legend

- (mod): Immediate modifications made to the stats rolled.
- (max): Maximum of each stat when trained and boosted with eq.
- (p/t): Per Tick. ie: bonus or penalty on the regeneration at each tick
- c/m : Cost/Mana. ie: bonus or penalty on the mana cost of spells
- ali : Alignment restriction on character creation. During play one can be of any alignment, the choice you make is your starting align. (A=all, E=evil, N=neutral, G=good)

The rest is pretty much self-explanatory.
