Some Playable Races

The following tables include all playable races. The first table lists all races that can be entered at no credit cost. By default, all characters start at Effective Character Level (ECL) 3. You may start at a higher level (that is, with an ECL greater than 3) by paying five credits for every extra ECL. For example, if you wish to start at ECL 7, you must pay 20 credits. Note: Some of the level adjustments come from sources other than the Monster Manual.
