>>43465807 I've considered it. It seems like it might encourage more character variety and force people to rely on backgrounds rather than races. I'd especially look into it for a space opera, as an alternative to the green-skinned alien babes. Humanity might be alone in the galaxy, and that might not be a bad thing.
I've considered it. Currently the only sapient life in my setting are Humans, Hobgoblins, and Lizardfolk. I want to avoid annoying shit like humans having a whole bunch of ethnicity and cultures when the other races get jack fuck, and I want to avoid "Hobgoblin kingdom", "Lizard Folk kingdom" nonsense. I hate 90% of fantasy races anway. I only really like >Orcs/Hobgoblins >Lizardmen >Vanara/Monkeymen >Tengu/Birdmen >Shit really most beast races that aren't cat/dog people are fine with me. >Dwarves are okay, kinda Everything else can fucking die in a fire.
Also am I the only person who thinks of calling someone a demi-human is retarded unless they were the result of tampering with human genes? >>43466214 This is fucking retarded. Humans are typically the best race in the game anyway. Good at everything, literally no downsides, usually have flexible bonuses. I fucking cringe when i see people bitch about power gamer playing tieflings.
If you want to see a real munchkin cry, ban fucking humans. They will fucking throw a fit.
Human-only campaigns in low- to mid-level magic worlds, preferrably martial characters so the concept of magic items can remain a mystery for more than 10 seconds.
I haven't play a campaign like this, because getting a player to abandon their concept of playing a super-special elf or lizardman or whatever is impossible. But if I could get players on board, I could probably run the best campaign they've played because I have some of my best stuff saved for that king of campaign.

>>43465807 Race isn't a big deal in my game. Culture of origin is. Unless the players prove they can hack it by actually visiting and living in a culture that isn't the euro-generic center, they play characters from I can't believe it's not grimm's fairytales Europe.
>>43465807 >How many of you guys only let your players play as humans, or have no demi-humans in your settings? I let people play non-humans because I'm not a faggot who flinches in fear of the fantastical in a goddamn fantasy game.
>>43469790 >the fantastical Yeah, the generic horned red-skinned humans, sharp-eared humans, short stocky humans, scaly humans and winged humans who are all played exactly the same as generic humans 99% of the time sure add to the fantasy.
I worried a lot before making my first nonhuman character that people would think I was a shit for playing an elf but they just seemed to be in the most interesting place culturally in the DMs personal setting.
>>43467564 >Race isn't a big deal in my game. >Culture of origin is. I like you.
>Unless the players prove they can hack it by actually visiting and living in a culture that isn't the euro-generic center, they play characters from I can't believe it's not grimm's fairytales Europe. This is silly, though. You can have an at least rough idea of how to play your ARABIAN NIIIIIGHTS character just by consulting thematic literature.
He's using that tired old bait that implies that every race need to be 'just humans with X' and not realizing that any of those races can be humans with X AND a very different culture and outlook on life because of it, making them interesting.
