Books Accepted: All are accepted except for ToB and ToM, but please mark all books used.
Setting: The world is what the world is like today, except magic exists. So the country lines are the same as they are at this moment. The world if predominantly human, but other races pop up in a few places. Orcs are treated much like the african-americans were before the human rights movement. So half-orcs are shunned more than orcs are, and are generally considered abominations. Elves occupy much of Europe, and a lot of the Far East is dwarven.
The major difference is that Russia and the USA are at war. You should have your character be from one of the following countries allied with the US - USA, Canada, Australia, England, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Mexico, anywhere in Central America, or Greenland. However, the DM is willing to take any idea, but you need to pass it by him first.
