This is a question I've often heard asked in friend circles. Mostly around DnD Games but also Warhammer Fantasy. And it's a simple question, but if it were real, what race would you like to belong to? What civilization would you join?
For instance, I've always liked Elves, they're possibly the most popular race, and have been made even more so to the common people thanks to Orlando Bloom's portrayal of Legolas. But truthfully, I'd really rather be a dwarf. My family is quite loose and fragmented, and knowing that Dwarven Clans are tightly knit, with their whole 'shoulder-to-shoulder, dwarf-to-dwarf' philosophy keeping them together - it sounds like an awesome group to be part of.
Then the lifestyle isn't bad at all, you drink your ale, you fight your heart out, you get to have a great big beard and weild awesome weapons. I'd personally be a dwarf. How about you?
I like the order of the Empire.
I like the looks of the Bretonnias, fighting for a higher cause.
HE are wonderful as soap bubbles with big fast hammers. Not my idea.
Of course there is something to be said about the chaos armies and the lizardmen.
Hmm.. tough question. If we were allowed to change race significantly then i think id like to be a beastman lol. If not... i think it would be dwarf for me. As you say, good lifestyle (Probably a Slayer... but by choice, not through being an emo-dwarf )
I'd be an Ogre. They eat, fight, kill, and have fun! I can do whatever I want and when I'm in a bad mood, punch out a few Gnoblars.
Think I would have to be a vampire. Yea I'm kinda dead but I get to have a bunch of minions follow me around.

This one's so easy... wait.... so not fair, I can only pick 1?
Vampire- I love the idea. Being dead is kind of a buzzkill, but it's a technicality only. They are gifted with unnatural power, that is NOT reliant upon their physical form, they are graceful and seductive, and immortal creatures with unsurpassed knowledge, and they- like me- view mankind as little more than a rung on the ladder to superiority. What's not to love?
Dark Elf- I'd love to be one of their assassins. I fit the elf stereotype of the lightly built, lithely muscled guy. I enjoy fencing of all varieties, so I'd be good with their blades. I couldn't be a good elf though, because I'm no where near tranquil enough. If I were in a battle, I'd want to get into the thick of it and start laying people flat.
which brings us to our next choice
Chaos Warrior- still human (mostly) but blessed by my gods for greatness, and my anger issues, masochism, and desire for bloodshed are actually GOOD traits! Full plate on the base model? Pack of roaring blade-flailing-killing-machines beside me all the way? Where do I sign up?!
Although I've never really thought about it before... if I could pick anything, I'd probably go for a Wood Elf.
I like the out-doors. I think I'd quite enjoy living in a woodland area; climbing trees, playing with the animals, killing filthy beastmen and enslaving humans...
Alright, probably not so hot on the last bit, but anyway...
Possibly, though, I may be a Chaos Warrior or a Vampire, primarily for the easy route to power and mad skills. Probably a Vampire would be more suitable - I'd probably just hide in my tower, guarded by my undead minions, and experiment or research and just generally keep to myself.
I would probably want to be a Favored Beastmen Leader(gor, not an ungor), under some certain god. I'd like to be a bit of the savage type and roam around looting and pillaging, but not like the orcs and goblins, but rather, in a more brutal manner. I like the idea of tribal life in Warhammer.
Hm, maybe being a dwarf for the lifestyle and the great .
I'd probably be some hauty High Elf living the good life on Ulthuan, maybe a Swordmaster, or a mage. Or maybe a beastman, ideally a Bray Shaman or higher ranking on the food chain, pillaging and plundering, only to retreat back to the dark forests of the Old World.
