Ok, so Does your DM allow non-standard races?
I/we only allow humans
I/we only allow humans, elves, and dwarves
I/we allow all 3.x core races (Human, dwarf, elf, gnome, half-orc, halfling)
I/we allow all 4.x core races (dragon people)
I/we allow weirdness (Warforged, kobolds, changings etc.)
So loyal readers, lets look at what this doesn't tell us. It looks like nearly half of everyone is playing with a non-standard race, with a full quarter running the standard 3.x suite of races. A handful of people play 4e (Isn't that the truth!) and the remaining votes go to either human only, or basic old school campaign race selection.
Which of the following types of games is preferred?
Core races (human/elf/dwarf) only
Standard AD&D/3e/4e races only
What's really interesting with this last poll, is in contrast to the other useless data, this useless data doesn't tell us that the preferred type of game is nearly an even split. Slightly more people prefer anything goes, but it is a quarter want human only, and a quarter want core races only.
Well I hope everyone didn't learn anything today and I look forward to talking about more exciting stuff tomorrow!
