Race as class in role-playing games, it goes back to Basic, Expert, Companion, Master’s and Immortal’s (BECMI) sets of Dungeons and Dragons.

We talk about whether we incorporate them and what effect it has on player characters that have a religious bend to them. You know, like taking powers away from clerics if the cleric falls out of favor with the deity.
