    Hi,

    the 3. Edition has invented some new exotic races like Genasis or Half-Dragons. I would like to know, if anybody uses this races in the birthright campaign.

    What about Tieflings or Celestials ?

    In my oppinion there should be no limit of restricting exotic races. May be there is a limit for half-dragons (like only one existing type of cerilian halfdragon), but why shouldn't they or others exist?

    For example in Khinasi could exist serveral fire-genasis and air-genasis, in Rjurik may exist earth-genasis or even half-elementals.

    With asimaars and tieflings there might be a problem, but if the godly realms have celestials/ infernal creatures, why not? One other problem of half celestials/ half demons might be the distance from gods to the mortal world, but in few times there might be exceptions (O.K., a child of a god with a mortal would habe an increadible bloodline!!!).
    May Khirdai always bless your sword and his lightning struck your enemies!

    Let's consider also the problem of limited plane-shift, which was pointed out in "blood spawn".

    Genasis, Half-Dragons, Tieflings and Celestials are all much older than
    3rd edition, but they did not have place in Monster Manual.

    Using these races for PCs in Birthright is almost unacceptable, but
    there may be some NPC from time to time, say once in 1000 years.

    Genasis, Tieflings and Celestials are half-planar creatures. The reason
    there are none of those in Birthright is the fact that Aebrynis is
    shrouded in Shadow World, and every planewalker must pass through it to
    get to Aebrynis. Needless to say, this passage is very dangerous and
    rarely attempted.

    Dragons of Cerilia are very rare and powerful. Dragons are much less
    often encountered and much less known and researched on Aebrynis than on
    any other world. Chance for offspring of a Dragon and member of another
    race is almost none.

    Well, I do not currently participate in a BR
    campaign. I can tell you that if I ever do become a GM
    of one, I would welcome such ideas. I would not
    necessarily be keen on them, but that`s another issue.

    Why? Because I think one of BR`s problems at this
    point is that it is too narrow in terms of playing
    potential. I see nothing wrong in at least discussing
    the possibilities.
    It`s fine for those who do like the narrow
    aspect. It is also fine, IMO, for those who would like
    to vary from that approach.
