Survivor Core Races- DWARF WINS (in a Scottish Accent)!

lowkey13

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
This thread is inspired by the prior threads that we've done- and it's time to re-do the thread that started the madness. The CORE RACES!

That's right; it's a blast from the past, and if you weren't here the first time, it's all new to you.

IMPORTANT NOTE- DOWNVOTES ARE ONLY WORTH 2 IN THIS THREAD.

Each race starts with 20 points and you vote for one race you like which gets 1 point and a race you dislike which loses 2 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote- first, because it speaks to the inherent racism of D&D, or something. Second, because.

Upvotes are in green, downvotes are in in red (unless you are on your phone, and are unable to). Copy and paste the previous posters vote and change the numbers. You may vote once per day. This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day.

This is purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to- explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the feat is eliminated (FATALITY!). Finally, if a feat has one vote left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting. In addition, you must split your vote- you can't upvote and downvote the same feat (no "see" votes). And you have to use BOTH YOUR UPVOTE AND DOWNVOTE if you vote.


Two important points that you must read before voting-
1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want. Spite, irrational love/hate, gameplay mechanics, strategic voting, and so on is perfectly acceptable. Are you voting against elves because you thought, "Hey, stupid elves." It's all good! This vote does not affect anything in real life, and no race will be kicked out of D&D because of your vote. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not- up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.

HA HA! Who am I kidding? Your vote will decide whether or not the D&D movie will feature Drizzt. So CHOOSE WISELY!

2. In order to be objective, I pulled the list from wikipedia (list of character races) and just put in the ones called "Core Races." If you want to know why Drow is separate, but not other subraces, or why Goliath isn't included, or any of a thousand other questions- I don't know. There's a million different ways to do this, and this is the way it happened. SO SAYETH LOWKEY13 FROM 2015.

3. As always, the list is the list. If you have a complaint about the list, please direct it to /dev/null

Katana Just kidding! Katana isn't a race, it's a way of life.
