This is tough to decide where this topic goes but I figured here is the best location.

Each race will receive a bonus. 1 stat & 1 skill to make them different from each other. Some races may receive more (like elves/dwarfs/trolls) skills/stats as they are classified as "elder" races. Remember 99.9% of people will be normal humans, it is only for VERY good roleplay and extreme conditions will a elder race be given.

So here are the current thoughts on the 'table':

Danish, Swedish, Norwegian:

Skill: Receive +10 in carpentry this represents the vikings skills with wood and their ship building powers.

Stat: Strength - there are tales of great feats of strength and how the Norseman endured even the greatest hardships. I was thinking a 10 bonus in strength to show their tenacity in beating things to a pulp.

Since this is a shard focusing on Nordic influences each elder race has their roots from the Scandinavian versions

Elves http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf#Scandinavian

Elves in these tales are elusive and magical thus they should receive:
Hiding/Stealth/Magery bonuses - in dex/int

I would think a bonus 10 in each skill and 10 in stats makes these powerful elder race - also having a natural ability of magery (considered rare for the shard) makes them very potent allies or rightly feared enemies. - Though West should come up with their main fluff it seems these beings are very reclusive and do not like outsiders who would do harm to their homes.

Dwarfs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norse_dwarves

These are not your typical 3 foot dwarf, in fact they are human sized. They are typically pale skin, black haired, and evil. They are magical beings with an the typical display of master craftsmen.

Skills: Blacksmith, Mining, Tinkering

Stats: A bonus of 10 in each and 10 in strength and dex. These beings are highly skilled and may make wonderous items while working for long hours and having high stamina/endurance.

Trolls http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trolls#Nordic_art.2C_music_and_literature

These beings are not evil by nature, but primitive and misunderstood. They live in mountains and sometimes abduct people/cattle/etc. as slaves or food.

Skills: Trolls are brutish creatures, but simplistic. A +10 in wrestling, parry, healing (to represent regeneration).

Stats: Trolls are massive and strong and should get a +30 to strength (players should be forced to have a 10 in int that never goes above this)

Well, you sum it up pretty well here. I have one thought regarding the Elfs though. Perhaps we could change magery against musicianship or archery?

Like this: dex/stealth/musicianship (or archery).

But Magery is a good idea as well... Hmm... Harsh one..
