Human, Light Elves, Dark Elves, Orcs and Dwarves (which earn lots of cash, they can produce items with skills and by using materials and recipes), Orcs are the toughest race (most HP, can take more beating), Dark Elves (my personal favorites) are the more calm type, has Shillien Oracle -> Elder that have good buffs like Empower. Light Elves are pretty similar to Dark Elves but far from the same. Light Elf archers are the fastest shooters. And last, but certainly not least, Humans, which are probably the best race (...yay...) because of all the different occupations and proffesions you can take.
NOTE: THs and Prophets own :D
Guy2:Cool. My prophet earned 10 million yesterday by buffing people.
Guy3:My Shillien Elder's empower roxxorz your boxxorz.
Guy4: That's nothin'. I've got 1200 karma.
Guy1,2 and 3:!PK with S grade at Hardin's Academy.
That is the game description, but I have also created an acronym very suitable to the preface of Lineage II:
LOSER INTERNET NIP EYEGASM ADVENTURE GAME ENTERPISE. Like it?
Lineage can also be used as a verb, used to insult those of us who spend hours a day playing the game (nerds).
Stop Lineageing around!
Lineage currently has five races(Humans, Orcs, Light Elves, Dark elves and Dwarves) with a sixth, the Kamael, coming with Chaotic Throne 1. Every race except for the Dwarves has a fighter and a Mage, with further expansion down the road. The players can change their occupation once after completing 20 lvl, a second change at 40 lvl and a further specialisation in their class after 76 lvl. For example, a Dark elven Fighter may become a Palus Knight at 20 lvl, then change to BladeDancer at 40 lvl and to Spectral Dancer at 76 lvl. Each change requires completion of quests. As no reversal is possible, a player must know very well what class he wants to play in the end even before creating his toon. There are 32 classes in Lineage II. Players who are 75 lvl can complete a quest for a subclass, giving them the opportunity to lvl a new class from lvl 40. There are certain restrictions, but for example, an Orc Destroyer(a fighter class) can have a Light Elf Spellsinger(nuker class) for a subclass.
