Proposal: Fine, but Thogs still not a monster

timed out, final vote 2-4—Yoda

Replace the rule “Races” with the following

  Each Adventurer has a creature type (abbreviated ‘Race’) tracked in the GNDT under a column called “Race”. A race may be any word between three and twelve letters long, but Adventurers are encouraged to be a Race from the set {Ogre, Elf, Fairy, Gnome, Dwarf}. An entity (including an Adventurer) who has a Race and whose Race is not Baby, Elf, Fairy, Gnome, Ogre, or Dwarf is called a Monster.

  New Adventurers start with a race of “Baby”. An adventurer with a Race of “Baby” may set their Race to Elf, Fairy, Gnome, Dwarf or Ogre at any time.

There is no reason for Ogres to be monsters and everything else to not be a monster. Of course, Monster doesn’t really even mean anything at this point, but it doesn’t make any sense to have monsters in our adventuring party.

against Exactly, monsters really don’t mean anything right now.

Which is why we can readd something when they mean something. For now, we have a ruleset that is implying there should be a difference between Ogres and all other classes, yet there isn’t.

against because some Adventurers may want to be Monsters.  Nice try, though.

But why just pick on Ogres?

If you want to come up with some more monster races, then go right ahead.

Jay is the only baby left. So unless other people join, new player character classes are pointless.

I think its fine if someone wants to be a monster… but they shouldn’t then be able to be part of a party. You fight monsters, you don’t adventure with them.

for for what it is worth.
