[RPG] Do subrace benefits add to or replace base race benefits


If I pick wood elf as my race do I also get the other benefits from just the elf race? Like the wood elf gets +1 wisdom but does that mean I also mean I get the +2 dex from the non subrace elf?

Best Answer

They add together. See the summary of modifiers to ability scores on page 12. And see the example of building Bruenor, Step 3 on page 13, where both his Mountain Dwarf strength modifier and his Dwarf constitution modifier are applied.
