Aarakocra are not allowed due to not being well-suited for the challenges in this campaign.

Drow & Duergar – These two races are allowed, but they should have a pretty interesting story. No Drizzt clones.

Alternate dragonborn will also be considered.

Githyanki/ Githzerai will be considered if the character concept is sufficiently creative.

Genasi
Air Genasi: add damage resistance: electricity, add cantrip Gust, Levitate is gained at 3rd level.

Earth Genasi: add damage resistance: acid, add Mold Earth cantrip, Pass Without Trace is gained at 3rd level.

Fire Genasi: no changes.

Water Genasi: change damage resistance to cold.
