You could be a human if you wanted to. The others might not trust you, though.

I would think your options are any humanoid race, within reason. Remember that the humans had to have captured you. They also need to be able to keep you captured, even when you're let loose in the arena. If you have a specific race in mind, ask about it and the GM will tell you if its a valid race.
If you're looking for ideas, just google "list of humanoid races" or something.

You don't have to be humanoid, just sentient and containable in an open-air arena.

Anyone who is not planning on playing a goblin can post or edit in their character info. Anyone who is planning on playing a goblin should PM me their stuff.

Anyone who has not yet posted can still join. I'll be accepting people until the game starts. That might be a terrible, terrible idea; there's about 20 people signed up already. We'll see.

Wow, that leaves a lot of choices... So do you want us to post our race here if we want to do something other then a goblin? Or PM you?

If you want to be a non-goblin, post your name, race, backstory, and color here. Anyone who wants to play a goblin should PM me that info instead.

Can I play a human?

Name: Tenel.
Race: human.
Backstory: Very little is known about the scarred human who calls himself Tenel. Tall with brown hair he hardly ever speaks to the point that some believe him to be mute. He choose's to speak with gestures as if speaking is actually painful for him. No one is sure if he's shy or just despises those around him. Whatever the case he is well known as a hand to hand fighter and swordsman. Capable of taking huge amounts of damage without saying word he's gained respect for his endurance. No one is sure how he got captured but he fights mercilessly against anyone in the ring.

Any sentient creature. Excellent. :evilgrin: Mindflayer time! Rakshasa time!

Name: Sha'siij of House C'jaan
Color:Silver (#808080)
Race: Rakshasa
Backstory: Born of the Naztharune caste, Sha'siij has the head of a black tiger and is covered in black fur. Unlike the more common castes of Rakshasa, he possesses few magical powers but compensates by his specialization in stealth and assassination. Unlike the other Rakshasa castes, he matches his caste in his willingness to work for other Rakshasa or those who prove themselves to be worthy of his trust, his lawful evil status meaning that the promises he gives, he intends to keep. His capture came about in a botched assassination attempt of an elven wizard, as he did not in fact know that elves tended not to sleep, but simply meditate at most. Magically bound and sapped of a fair amount of his energy and strength, he was transported off to the arenas to fight for his survival.

Anything? Hmm... Does it have to be a land being? (By which I mean, will there be water at all in the arena, which a creature could reside in?)
I'll think about my character for now.

PCs must be able to survive on land. However, amphibious creatures would be allowed.

Alright, so no flight or purely water-based races, that helps to narrow it down.

Also, no pure elemental beings or things that could not conceivably be contained, and no creatures without a plausible reason for being captured in the first place.

Okay, extremely long background, yes, but it's not necessary to read all of it, skimming will do.
my character:

Name: Ortaras Ein
Colour: Dark Brown (#995F40)
Race: warg/shapeshifter
Gender: Male
Backstory: In the past Ortaras had been a human that had gained the powers of shapeshifting, and had studied his art for many years, placing himself on the road to mastering his abilities. The townspeople of his home saw him as cursed, sired by a demon, and eventually shunned him, forcing him to leave the town and live alone, secluded from others. He managed to survive, relying on the natural abilities of the forms had learned to shift into to hunt and hide as he must to live.

This simple life did not last long though, and after returning from a hunt, Ortaras found bandits had invaded what little shelter he had constructed. He was heavily outnumbered and chose to flee using the fastest form at his disposal, that of a warg, rather than attempt to fight. He managed to escape the bandits, easily outrunning them, though was caught unaware as he was hit by some form of magic which sent him tumbling, leaving him dizzied and unable to protect himself as a club was brought down upon his head, knocking him to unconsciousness.

When he awoke Ortaras found himself still in the form of a warg, legs bound and mouth muzzled, with a man standing over him. He tried to return to his human form, to plea for freedom, but found his form would only flutter for a moment before returning to that of the warg. He attempted several other forms that he had learned, but every time, he found himself returning to the warg. The man allowed a grin to spread across his face, as he said "When I heard of a demon who took the form of beasts inhabited this area, I believed the people were simply allowing their imagination to carry them away. I didn't fully believe you existed, though I thought if you did, you would at least be a challenge to capture. A demon who can change shape at will, you'd expect him to be powerful, but here you are, your abilities negated by my spells, until such a time as I choose to release the enchantment. You'll fetch a hefty price in the markets. I heard there was an arena being constructed in a city to the north of here."

It took several days to reach the Arena. Over these days, when the man was distant from Ortaras, off hunting, purchasing supplies, or sleeping at an inn, he could feel his ability's presence in the back of his mind, still locked away no matter how he tried to break through the spell. On rare occasion his form would change without his intending it, but he always returned back to the form of a warg within minutes, and Ortaras never managed to escape. When they finally arrived to the arena the man promptly sold Ortaras to the guards and left, taking some of the strength of the spell with him, but never breaking it.
