All those races sound good to me, but halflings are actually quite common. Plus we can put a twist on them to make them more adventurous...roguish.
Also, Khanthir can be the place for a lot of the made-up creatures. Talonis will have more of a classic fantasy setting - not completely cutting out our made-up races, of course. Khanthir will be completely different than anything you've seen before.

There are so many races to incorporate, do you think we should have three continents?

I don't think we should have undead. It doesn't really seem to fit. We can still have a not-undead vampire-like race, that is based on vampires but called something else.

And no night elves, that's only for warcraft. I think the Srantar are very close to dark elves, so besides them and the Alfarin, we only need a single "elves" race, which could be somewhere between wood elves and light elves, a lot like the elves of Lothlorien.

The poll will run until Sun Jan 24, 2010 2:47 pm. Then we'll have a final decision.

Ok I deleted the night elves, but the undead are a common fantasy race. They contain Wrights, zombies, litchs, Skeletons, necromancers, etc... which exist in all fantasy universes. If we are having all races than we have to have them.

And the dark elves are also cool. And evil. I don't think Srantars are evil, and that is why we should have them to. If we decide to have all races than I will write their history.

Please delete the Dark Elves. I had another idea that would then look to much like them, I will tell you when my existing races are ready ;)

We're not having all races, Maiglin. No one ever said that. It would be ridiculous. And undead do not exist in all fantasy worlds, only a very few.

The Srantar are pretty much identical to dark elves. Dark Elves were, at least originally, not evil, but only underground-dwelling.

Can't we just say "elves" and then make some corrupt and some good? Maybe they could even have different skintones and appearance, but appearance of humans varies a lot, too, and they are only one race.

Ok, you have right, it should be only one race of the Elves. But the undead I am not giving up without a fight.

Me too agrees with undead. Me too is not going to give up with a fight.

Welll, if you don't want undead, then at least put necromancers . . .
