Default Fantasy Medieval RPGs must not have different races

It's just ridiculous that in a Medieval-like game, one of the characters is black...


Next, I want a film in which Chaka Zulu is white!

Some Roman Emperors came from North Africa, and black people weren't unknown in Europe. Of course they were rare, but known in Shakespeare's time. And then there was Byron's She Walks in Beauty Like the Night - you didn't think the lady in question was white, did you? A lot of the Spanish Inquisition in its later incarnations was dedicated to removing the 'blood taint' of heresy - i.e. descendants of Moorish and Jewish inhabitants of Spain pre-Reconquista.

You fail history forever? Hmmm. Or just plain racism.

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you..."
