I like playing a mixture of races but probably play Human the most.
Mainly because of the lower tnl and the fact that I have less time to play than I once did.

Obviously, Halflings are the uber race but I do have to give other races a try, I suppose

Looking forward to seeing what other people's favourites are

For casters its going to have to be Liz,Tua seen as most of my casters are liz or tua, and for brutes Trl, my fave combo is Trl War at hero, kill 3 mobs, catch tick "oh look back to full"

Although i do agree with riviat on the whole halfling beign the uber race

My favorite is the elf. Originally picked because I think of elves as cute little fairy creatures.

Half-elfs rule!!

I think I have every creatable class of half-elf somewhere

But I like birdies too. Love my griff warrior. And my centaur mage... drool.

I guess it pretty much depends on the moment. I'm not a big fan of sprites or harpies or kobalds or goblins. .. you get the picture. Hobbits fit there too as something a giant might step on.

I like lots of the races including tua and hie though I tend to prefer them combined with non traditional classes. (Taking a weird combo and making it work is fun - to me anyway). I find fdk fun and painful in equal measures.

Simply for a role-play-ish point of view, I am biased towards the Drow.
I am a big fan of those evil spider-lovers.

And sprites. with BBQ sauce.

I must admit I also really like my half-elf mage. With nearly human hp, and nearly elf mana, they really are soloing machines, especially once you get that 97% nofail thing going on. My 999 hel mag had about 4500 hp and 4500 mana, a nice combo.

I am still a newbie but I am partial to dwarves and gargoyles.
I have several low level characters that I am trying out.
IMO dwarves are great.

Giant is my fav for anything brutish, drow for caster types, rogue/arc types...still tinkering around...my half orc rogue isn't too shabby. I don't do the silly class/race combo thing so dunno about the oddities.

I really enjoy playing as a High-Elf. They are buff in hps and and in mana. Even though they have a high tnl i find them worthwhile playing. (I usually make an elf with the sole intent of going High-Elf)

Centaur would be my 2nd choice of race tied with Tuatar.

I usually pick drw for a caster because of their relatively low tnl and gia for a brute due to their insane hp and damage. Including remorts though, I'd say sprite is my favorite by far for any class (except maybe bzk)! Yay racial dodge!

I really enjoy fdk (for bci), and I wish it was still creatable -- it makes Hero more enjoyable with something to look forward to, and makes Lowmort a bit more of a challenge. (relatively weak with high tnl)

Drw for mag definitely. (fast, good mana, nofail,cool) Cen wzd is a pretty indestructible combo. (high hps, high mana, good armor, flash)

So far I've enjoyed Dragon a lot at lowmort, can't wait to try Hero!

Drow always come first...

What's not to like about them? They have great skin, fantastic hair and nice pointy ears. And so much more attitude than their tree hugging cousins.

Of course, trees are nice too. I like ents second.

I love all my alts, but I get frustrated failing spells... nothing says aaaaaarg like having to try and cast portal 3 of four times at the end of a run in an aggie area.

So my favorite: Centaur. Not as hard to level as a Dragon, not as splatty as a Sprite, not as faily as a human. Not as emo as a drow

Uhmmm well you know what... I will be the first to admit I complain alot about my sprite... but I still like it I loooooooooove nofail on spells. Too bad it doesn't apply to certain "skills" that are used for casting as well

Besides that through the years I've also tried playing with various race... and I haven't come to one specific favorites

Would I change my sprite's race if I got a freebie to do so without being back to mort? Would I do it? uhmmmm I think the only way would be either being offered to be a cyborg or a Greater Fae.... and i'm sure there's no way on earth or in hell that will hever happen LOL so i'll stick with my sprite

TMS is still not counting votes, damn them! Somehow they count Outbound clicks better then Inbound which you would think would indicate to them there is an obvious error, but apparently not.
