Subraces and Variants
Subraces must be chosen for a race. Variants are considered optional. Currently Half-Elves, Humans, and Tieflings have optional racial Variants. Other races that have no Subrace or Variant include Aarakocra, Bugbears, Dragonborn, Firbolg, Goblin, Goliath, Half-Orc, Hobgoblin, Kenku, Kobold, Lizardfolk, Orc, Tabaxi, Triton, and Yuan-Ti Purebloods.
Ask
Always ask your DM first before picking a race, especially a non-standard race or subrace. Some races, a Ghostwise Halfling as an example, require the character to come from a very specific location in Faerûn.
