It’s something I don’t see a lot of. Here or elsewhere well thought out original races within fantasy stories. More often than not its some sort of new take on an old staple, elves, dwarves, demons and the like.
I myself enjoy devising new races, from the biology to their history and etymology.
So I wonder what are your views on the subject are you more than happy to play with the classics or are you more interested in something new?
