* Hobbits: The Halfings are look rather like Hobbits to anyone who isn't Sapkowski's lawyer. In the video game not only are their feet covered in hair, their hands are also and presumably the rest of their bodies are too.

'''The Witcher''' franchise started off as a collection of [[CharacterOverlap loosely connected]] {{dark|Fantasy}} [[LowFantasy Low]]/HeroicFantasy short stories which deconstructed classic FairyTales and then evolved into a series of (so far) eight novels with a strong MythArc. Written by the Polish author Creator/AndrzejSapkowski during TheNineties, the books were translated into multiple languages (including Russian and German) and adapted into comics, the Film[=/=]LiveActionTV series ''The Hexer'', and [[TabletopGame/TheWitcherGameOfImagination The Witcher tabletop RPG]]. The franchise first gained widespread attention in the English-speaking world, though, with the release of ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'', a video game adaptation-slash-sequel by the then-unknown Polish developer studio, Creator/CDProjektRed, English translations of the original novels have followed. As of 2016, six of the eight books have received official English translations. They have also been fan translated, and are freely available at The Witcher Forum (Video Game) Community "Our Community Fan Translations" Page. Also, it was announced in 2016 that an English-language movie is in production, written by TV veteran Thania St. John based on two short stories from ''The Last Wish'' collection (''The Witcher'' and ''Lesser Evil'') and produced by Sean Daniel Company, responsible for the adaptation of James S.A. Corey's ''Series/TheExpanse''.

Added DiffLines:

*FiveRaces: Technically there are four sentient races which are not considered Monsters, but Witchers are often seen as no longer human.
** The Mundane race are humans, by far the most populous race.
** The Stout race are dwarves, they are known for their strength and battle prowess (also banking).
** The Fairy race are elves, the most magically inclined and technologically advanced race.
** The Cute race are halfings, to be expected from [[Expy lawyer friendly] Hobbits.
** Finally the High Men are titular Witchers: they are highly educated and trained, their mutations give them enhanced senses, strength, and immunity, and they are dedicated to preserving both human and monster worlds and act as a link between the two.

The first five novels are collectively known as the Witcher Saga. In addition to these, there were two loosely related short stories: ''Droga, z której się nie wraca'' ("Road of No Return") a prequel telling the tale of Geralt's parents) and ''Coś się kończy, coś się zaczyna'' (''Something Ends, Something Begins'') a non-canonical story of Geralt's and Yennefer's wedding).

** Nilfgaard seems to be some cross of AncientRome (expanding city-state, speaks language of scholars as native language, calls army units "legions"), TheSovietUnion (heavy use of secret police) and [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany the bad side of Germany]] (predilection for wearing black, sun-associated imagery, policies of ethnic and cultural purity, disdain for "degenerate" outsiders).
