The Witcher - Races @ IGN
Ign gives us an in-depth look at some of the races in CD Projeckt's upcoming RPG The Witcher, including some nice screenshots and concept art. The usual races common to the fantasy genre are covered: humans, elves, dwarves and gnomes, but they also give a mention to some of the creatures unique to Sapkowski's tales:
Sapkowski's fantasy world is also inhabited by many other sentient or intelligent races - the red eyed vrana reptiles, the bobolaks, the goat-legged sylvans, and dragons, among others. Gossip also has it that the deeper lakes and seas have been made into the nests of the mysterious fish people, with whom no one has been able to make contact yet. One of the rarest of races - the dopplers, or known otherwise as vexlings, mimics, or doublers — are able to take the form and shape - as long as body weight is similar - of other creatures, along with their attire, equipment, character and behaviour. Just because of this, the more superstitious and wary individuals regard them as monsters and try to hire Witchers to slay this sentient race.
