The main role of the sub-race system is to have a tribe of players that are different from others, but still have similar traits (such as being able to craft the same items in the same way). However, the system allows for sub-races to have different base stats, which can have drastic effects on the user. For example, the Baleful race is made up of deformed humans, and they have an extremely high Luck score. This means it is very easy to get a critical hit when using the Baleful race..
