The major races included in the 13th Age Archmage Engine include humans, dwarves, elves, gnomes, half-elves, half-orcs, and halflings. Your character need not be limited to these races, however. Minor races, including Dragonic/Dragonspawn, Holy One/Aasimar, Forgeborn/Dwarf-forged, and Tiefling/Demontouched, are also referenced below.
Each race is associated with two ability scores, one of which can be chosen for your character’s racial bonus.

The character also receives a separate class bonus. These two bonuses must apply to different ability scores.
Each race also provides the character a special power that can be used once per battle. (It is regained after a quick rest.) This is called the racial power.
