Mixed. I started with four players. One who had never played before. I expected one person to play a dwarf cleric because he had been trying them out in 3.5 but he decided to go with dragonborn. The party consisted of dragonborn cleric, dragonborn fighter, elf warlock and elf druid. When PH3 came out, the cleric asked to change to a rune priest. So he discovered a book teaching him about an older tradition than the cleric. After that we added a human psion to the game as the dragonborn fighter became less reliable. The player of the elf druid wanted to change to human. I had Cocoon worshippers kidnap him and drain his life essence to create the insectare
and turn him human. Another dragonborn fighter was added to the party recently.
