Publication history[edit]

Races of the Wild was written by Skip Williams and published in February 2005. Cover art was by Adam Rex, with interior art by Tom Baxa, Steve Belledin, Dennis Crabapple McClain, Wayne England, Matt Faulkner, Emily Fiegenschuh, Jeremy Jarvis, Chuck Lukacs, Larry MacDougal, Vinod Rams, Sam Wood, and James Zhang.

"One new twist on elves is self-sufficiency and nonspecialization," Skip Williams explained. "The long elven lifespan gives them plenty of time for learning to do things for themselves. Halflings lead something of a double life. Their wandering lifestyle obliges them to seem open and welcome to strangers, but they have secrets they keep to themselves."[1]
