What Do I Know About Reviews? Grazilaxx’s Guide to Ancestry (Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition)

How we look at player character species or familiar background has been a popular topic in recent months. For years, people that the industry should have listened to more often have said that race in RPGs introduces some problematic narratives.
