From publisher blurb:
The Children of the Stars. . . and of Chaos!
The elves shape their future amidst the tragedy of exile, while the dwarves struggle to carve theirs from internecine strife. The minotaurs proclaim manifest destiny, while the kender look to a future without affliction. The gnomes assemble a collective future from cogs and gear shafts, while goblins shake theirs free from the oppressors of the past. Ogres follow a cunning leader into a future of imagined glory; humans gather around rulers bold enough to see a clear destiny. These are the races of Ansalon.
Races of Ansalon is a resource for games set in the world of Dragonlance. It is an encyclopedia of cultures that details everything from racial relations and psychology to history and language.

Each chapter is devoted to one of Ansalon’s racial types, with additional information on mixed-race characters and an assortment of character options such as alternative class features and prestige classes. An appendix presents racially themed magic items, feats, vital statistics, and cultural weapons to get the most out of your Tarmak, half-gnome, or Irda All information within this volume is fully compatible with the revised edition of the d20 System game.
