The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim では、さまざまなプレイ可能な10の種族 (Race) がある。それぞれが独自のユニークな種族的アビリティとパワーを有する。各種族は1つの Skill のレベルが +10 から、他5つの Skill レベルが +5 からスタートする。しかしこれは、プレイヤーが時間とともに任意のスキルを成長させることができるので、各種族がキャラクターのタイプの作成を制限することを意味しない。他の The Elder Scrolls ゲームとは違い、Skyrim ではクラスシステムを考慮していない。そのためキャラクターの作成では、種族はプレイヤーが持つ大前提のゲームプレイの選択肢のみで、スキルは時間とともに成長するが、これは外見とスキルを決定する。

Starting skills by race[]

The following table shows the starting Skill英語版 statistics for each Race. The higher the number (over the base level of 15) the better. Values of 20 indicate this is a favored skill of the race. Values of 25 indicate this is a Primary Skill of the Race. Skills can be improved to a primary group.

Every race has their own unique skill which they excel at and will start at level 25 with that particular skill. For Example: Breton英語版s start at level 25 Conjuration英語版 as they are naturally skilled at it.

Stats affected by character size[]

Characters' races impact their jump height and run speed. Physically taller races can cover more ground while running and have a greater vertical jump height.

Melee damage[]

Getscale command on a Male Nord. Returns 1.00.

Using the console command player.setscale to change the height of the character will increase the size of a character in addition to increasing their movement speed, jump height, and damage output. Because changing the player scale in the console increases and decreases melee damage accordingly, there is a misconception that taller races do more base melee damage.[1] Without console modification, however, the default scale of all races in the console is 1.00, regardless of physical height.[2] Therefore, all races do the same melee damage at the time of character creation. For further explanation, see the screenshot displaying the actual player scale (1.00) used in calculations and the base scale. The base scale is a purely, completely cosmetic scale in which the character's height is adjusted accordingly. Orcs and High Elves have, equally, the highest cosmetic height in the game, in which both of the races cosmetic scale is 1.10. This means that an Orc has a cosmetic scale of 1.10 as does a High Elf, but like mentioned above, all races in the game use a scale of 1.00 for every single calculation including Damage Output, Damage Resistance, Run Speed, and Jump Height.

Changes from previous games[]

Character creation has been dramatically changed in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Previous games had the player choose from a list of classes that would determine the starting skills for the player's character and in some cases, how the player's character would level. The player also had the option of creating a custom class, selecting each skill individually. This system had a very large impact on player effectiveness in the beginning of the game, though Oblivion's system was able to lessen that impact. A player could spend hours working out the most effective way to build a character.

In Skyrim, however, that system has been removed, meaning that though the player will still select a race, the player no longer has to select a class. Skill set specialization is still possible in Skyrim, but instead of permanently selecting this during character creation, this is now done using the skill perks earned by leveling up (both skills and player level, as perks are earned by overall level while skill level is required to select any but the most basic perks). The birthsign system has been replaced completely with guardian stones英語版, which can be changed at any time by visiting and activating a new stone.

The Luck attribute has also been removed and is therefore impossible to increase. Skills have been further reduced from a total of 21 to 18. There are no acrobatics/athletics or speed attributes so it is not possible to increase your jump height or your character's running speed through stats (however, Altmer for example, have a naturally faster running speed than the other races).

Level 81 is the highest, meaning there are 80 (no perk can be chosen at level 1) possible perk points to choose from (out of over 250 possible places to spend them) however a typical player will not max out all skills to 100, and will instead reach only around level 50 or so. A character designed around 30 perk points is a reasonable build that can be reached in-game fairly quickly and is a great starting point for those who want to design the character before playing.
