Races is the term for the ability for players to be a variety of species in-game. There are advantages and disadvantages to this concept. For example, it adds a huge amount of potential to RuneScape while complicating future updates.
Races are a popular idea that could add great value to RuneScape. Correctly implemented, it could be one of the greatest updates since RuneScape 2. Bear in mind that no implementation will be perfect for everyone, but it could get somewhere close to that.
For example, a player could choose to be human, dwarf, elf, or several other species, though they would still be basically humanoid.
