From publisher blurb:
Is your Forgotten Realms character an elf? A dwarf? Maybe a gnome?
Perhaps, yet that doesn't really say much, does it? One might just as easily say there's now difference between a Calishite and a Thayan because they're both humans! No one is just a demihuman in the Realms—there are acrobats, barbarians, giant killers, manhunters, pestkillers, prospectors, and even tunnelrats, but they're all demihumans and they all walk the face of Faerûn.
Within these pages are dozens of kits designed to help layers in a Forgotten Realms campaign enrich their characters and make them truly native to the Realms. Special benefits and disadvantages for each kit enhance the roleplaying experience while allowing characters to reflect their social roots and racial heritages. This companion to Wizards and Rogues of the Realms and Warriors and Priests of the Realms completes the series of kit-based sourcebooks for the Forgotten Realms campaign.
