In Arcanos, players have the option of playing a wide variety of races, including fey, dragons, and outsiders.
Humans are one of the most populous species on Arcanos.
- Humanoid (Human)

Pixies are quite possibly the most violent and aggressive species on Arcanos.
- Humanoid (Pixie)
- Small: As Small creatures, pixies receive a +1 size bonus to attacks and to AC, as well as a +4 size bonus to Hide checks. However, they have a -4 penalty on Grapple checks, and their lifting and carrying limits are three-quarters of medium creatures.

- +2 racial bonus to saves against illusions and enchantments
- Pixies have a +2 racial bonus on Intimidate, Listen, Move Silently, and Spot checks.
- Imposing Personality: Pixies are treated as being one size category larger for the purpose of Intimidate checks.
- Automatic Language: Common, Sylvan. Bonus Languages: TBA.
- Favored Class: Barbarian, Ranger, or Sorcerer, selected at first level.
Saurians are ponderous, careful thinkers, but when roused are implacable and ruthless.
- Humanoid (reptilian)
- Medium: As Medium creatures, saurians have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
- -2 Dexterity, +2 Constitution, +2 Intelligence, -2 Charisma: Saurians are very tough and possess keen powers of reasoning, but they are rather ponderous and slow to relate to others.
- Saurian base land speed is 30 feet.
- Spell-like Abilities: 1/hour-fire ray. This is a ranged touch attack with a range of 30 ft., which deals 1d6 fire damage. The caster level for this ability equals one-half the saurian's hit dice or CL 1st, whichever is higher.
- +2 natural armor.
- Natural attacks: 2 claw attacks (1d4). Saurian monks have the option of dealing slashing and piercing damage with unarmed strikes, instead of bludgeoning damage.
