Want to make your roleplaying experience even more unique and interesting? Try joining a race! Races give you even more benefits during your game play on Vox Populi. There are nine different races to chose from, each unique in their own way. They don’t change how you look to others in-game, but they can give you other perks you wouldn’t have otherwise.

When you join Vox Populi, you are in the Human race by default. Type /races list and you can see a list of the different races to join.

However, please note that you will not be able to use race commands until you are [A] rank or higher. To join a race, do /race join (racename). So for example, doing /race join pigman will enter you into the Pigman race.


Humans are the default race, everyone starts as a human. Humans have no major features, but are the only race that can become a Vampire or Werewolf.


Pigmen are able to forage carrots from anywhere and everywhere, and also have increased knockback due to their piggy-like strength.


Endermen teleport in combat, forge ender pearls, and can use their slender fingers to pry blocks directly from their source.


Skilled miners, Dwarves can mine faster than anyone, and pick up extra gold and treasure along the way. They are very proud of their beards. NEVER try to toss them.


Squids have a natural comfort in water, allowing them to function better underwater than any other race. In combat, they spray Ink on their enemies, temporarily blinding them. Look out for their tentacles.


These slimy fellows have a tendency to cover their enemies in goo during combat, slowing them. Striking them just right may shave off a slimeball or two, but don’t let them eat slime, or they will regenerate their health.


Elves can forage apples from trees with ease. In combat, they are deadly with bows, and can deflect harmful spells with their natural magic. Don’t make fun of their ears.


With their cauldrons and a little Hocus Pocus, Witches can conjure alchemical ingredients from thin air. In addition, their affinity to magic gives their spells a bit of extra power.


Beasts deal extra damage in combat by scratching their enemies with their claws. In addition, they get a brief burst of speed when they take damage. As a natural predator, beasts can always obtain food, and their favorite is fish!

    I’ve been an Enderman for a while, but I don’t know how to use the teleport ability. How do you teleport in combat using that Enderman ability?

    Also, what about this Witch race I’ve read a bit about on the forums? Why not include it & its perks on this page?

      The Enderman teleport ability is passive, which means it’s random when you get hit.

      The website is not up to date yet, but you can view the race in game via /race info witch 🙂
