As I’m staring at the cool menu screen of Skyrim, I’m wondering whether I should have chosen another race to play as. Currently I chose a Wood elf whom I named ‘Woodlander’ because he seems to have some ‘useful skills’ but I’m not sure whether I will need to swim or sneak a lot, which is a specialty trait in other races.
There are ten races altogether, along with a hidden Vampire sub-race which opens up a whole new gameplay structure. Don’t worry about their faces. They can be personalised through deep characcter customisation options.
