Race and Calling cost 0 CPP

Each race has its own benefits and limitations, as well as appearance-related requirements. All appearance/makeup choices are subject to Plot approval. If we feel that your makeup, etc is not easily distinguishable at a distance, we reserve the right to ask you to make minor changes or alterations, such as darkening makeup, adding more glitter, etc, to make each race stand out visibly at a glance or in darkened conditions.

If you choose to play a half breed you should choose at least one racial trait from both parents’ races. If one parent is Human, you should choose only one trait from the non-Human parent’s race. Your racial advantage and disadvantage will be determined by Plot via the flip of a coin.  We will let you know which ones you have inherited when we send you the notice that your character is approved. You may, however, choose a calling from either parent’s race. If you play a half Syrene you will always receive the Birthing Shell disadvantage.
