Humans are the default race for Swords & Wizardry, and thus they receive no specific bonuses or penalties as do the other races. Humans are a hardy breed, fighting vigorously to expand and guard their civilization in a dangerous world. Many perils lurk beyond the borders of the human lands, but humanity must be ever alert to the possibility of treachery within its own territories and kingdoms: The very individuality that makes humankind so diverse and energetic as a race can also breed those who are dark of mind and willing to cooperate with the forces of evil and chaos.

Note that non-humans cannot be Assassins, Druids, Monks, Paladins, or Rangers as player Characters.
