RE: More questions from a BR newbie

In the main boxed set alone, there are (I think) five glaring departures from
the rules and several more in the other source books. They can be looked at as
either exceptions put in to keep the PC's on their toes, or that each character
description is simply the summation of rumour, and as such is prone to error.
The GM can then decide what (rules-compliant) version they would like or just
leave it as an exception to the rules.

Two points, firstly some countries are fairly multi-racial in population, and
while a 'half-breed' may not be liked, a human, dwarf or elf would be despised
in such a position of power. Secondly, the smaller the minority, the harder it
is to achieve anything. Getting the little things takes so much additional
effort that the extraordinary seems not that much harder.
>And again, has this stuff already been discussed before?
yes, much of it has more than once, but fresh discussion gives different
answers as people who have used the suggestions from the previous time around
can now give reviews/ opinions from another angle.
