Favorite PC Race.
This one is a hard one for me. I have played every common race in the main books plus many of the extra races that can found scattered through the Monster Manuals and/or the Races of … books. I have played many great characters but there are indeed two races that stand out to me.
Humans and Dwarves.
Humans offer a great amount of flexibility as they give the Player and extra feat and 4 extra skill points (D&D 3.5) I find that for most starting players the Human is a great race to go with.
Dwarves are just amazing. They cannot be slowed by their armor keeping them at a base speed of 20ft, they get Darkvision out to 60 ft, +2 to Constitution and -2 to Charisma (what’s not to like about that), and they also get Stonecunning (ability and bonus to notice strange things in stonework). In a game where Dungeon is part of the name stone walls are most than likely going to around you.
Plus in D&D 3.5 only Dwarves can take the Prestige Class, Dwarven Defender. Basically and untouchable tank with one really pointy end.
The Dwarf is definitely my favorite PC Race.
