In the only High Fantasy roleplaying chronicle that I entered and that actually continued until it came to a natural ending, with the characters lives more or less stable and retiring from adventures, I've played Mirabat. Mira's silver, can't speak human languages (he can write, though, and he understands the humans) and he was the most rewarding character I've ever played. Maybe I'm just not supposed to roleplay humans. Werewolf and vampire chronicles go well... hum... no, it can't be it. I've tried to be a centaur and a half-elf, and none of that worked.
