Races of the Realms

Breton (Men of High Rock) [53]

Bretons hail from the province of High Rock. They are tall, dark haired people. Bretons are highly intelligent and willful people, and have an outgoing personality. It is said that Bretons are weaned on magic, for it seems to suffuse their very being. They are excellent in all of the arcane arts. Intermingling with Elven blood has given Bretons an affinity for magic but hardiness is also part of their heritage. Passionate and eccentric, poetic and flamboyant, intelligent and willful, the Bretons feel an inborn, instinctive bond with the mercurial forces of magic and the supernatural. Many great sorcerers have come out of their home province of High Rock, and in addition to their quick and perceptive grasp of spellcraft,
enchantment, and alchemy, even the humblest Breton can boast a high resistance to destructive and dominating magical energies. The main religion in High Rock is the worship of the Nine Divines but some Bretons worship the gods of their Elven ancestors.

Racial Features:
IQ 11 [20]
Magery 1 [15]
Damage Resistance: Magic 2 [8]
Talent - Breton Magic +1 (thaumatology, alchemy, enchantment, occultism) [10]

Skilled sailors, Nords can be found in seaports and settlements along all the coasts and rivers of Tamriel. Strong, stubborn, and hardy, Nords are famous for their resistance to cold, even magical frost. Violence is an accepted and comfortable aspect of Nord culture. Nords of all classes are skilled with a variety of weapon and armour styles, and they cheerfully face battle with an ecstatic ferocity that shocks and appals their enemies.

Redguard (Men of Hammerfell) [63]

Redguards hail from the province of Hammerfell. They are a stocky, powerful race that are known to be extremely quick and hardy. Legend has it that Redguards are innately more proficient at weapons than any other race. They are excellent in all arts concerning blade and shield. They have descended from a long line of warriors and mystic seers. The most naturally talented warriors in Tamriel, the dark skinned, wiry haired Redguards of Hammerfell seem born to battle, though their pride and fierce independence of spirit makes them more suitable as scouts or skirmishers, or as free ranging heroes and adventurers, than as rank and file soldiers. In addition to their cultural affinities for many weapon and armour styles, Redguards are also physically blessed with hardy constitutions and quickness of foot. The main religion of Hammerfell is a type of religion mixed between ancestor worship and a nine divines type religion.

Hard to Kill 1 [2] (or 2 [4])
