I listen to music when I play. I'm a rock guy and my music simply doesn't fit with any other race but dwarf. Listening to Slayer, Black sabbath, Metallica, Pantera and others simply does not mix well with the glam rock looking elves, or the humans that look like they should be in suits instead of armor. Hobbits could almost be metal if they had beards. So before you reroll a new class ask yourself are you metal? If so, Dwarf is the only way to be.
