Each creature has one type, which broadly defines its abilities. Some creatures also have one or more subtypes. A creature cannot violate the rules of its subtype without a special ability or quality to explain the differencetemplates can often change a creature's type drastically.
PC Playable Races
When discussing or considering a playable race's type, it's type is similar to the corresponding creature type, with a few important differences.
The first difference
is that each race type assumes members of the race are roughly humanoid
in shape and have two arms, two legs, a torso, and a head. This is important
so that a race can take advantage of all the various magic item slots available
to characters and can utilize the standard weapon and armor options.
The second difference
is that all of these race types are 0-Hit Dice creatures, which means that
their Hit Dice, base attack bonus, saving throw progression, skill points,
class skills, and weapon and armor proficiencies are based on the class
levels each member of a race takes.
