Nomad is on a distinguished road
Half-elves are pretty weak - they don't have much in the way of stat boosts or particularly useful special abilities. A High-elf would probably be a better bet if you want to play a ranger or rogue - they're a bit stronger and have much higher boosts to DEX and INT, so they're better at both combat and spell-casting, plus they have the See Invisible ability so you don't need to worry about getting attacked by ghosts and things you can't see.

Dwarves are another pretty good race - they have high wisdom, so they're good if you want to play as a priest or paladin, plus they can't be blinded. Half-orcs and Half-trolls make good warriors. Most of the other races are weak physically or have drawbacks like lack of infravision that make them hard to keep alive for a beginner.
