No, not yours.  The one that beat up Sunn.  And emphasis on AWAKENED.

Also, nightwing, that thing about armored characters casting spells:  They're called clerics.

No, normal housecat.

Sunn's main failing in a fight is that she is possibly the most distractible person ever. If someone she's fighting points out a butterfly, she will go chasing after it.

Here's a suggestion:

Charlie Dog - When an author just can't settle on one race for their character. Or even two. Or three. When they just have to throw every cool race into the melting pot that is their PC. A half-elf/half-human hybrid is already stretching it, and upon thinking about it a half-orc/half-anything is very close to the breaking point, but a 1/3 elf-1/3 angel-1/3 human abomination is an assassination of credulity. The only way to even completely and totally justify a racial hybrid is by having a list of genealogies for your character handy and those tend to be really long and annoying.

I think th reason that half orcs and half elves are common is because a lot of people use DnD races, and those two are standard.  I agree on just about any case aside from those, though.

Fun fact-In ancient Sumerian religion, Gilgamesh was 2/3 God but had two parents, one of whom was a god.  Apparently people didn't do any math back then.

I think that's the sort of thing that Nevrmore is speaking out against.

Yeaj, I get that, but he says that half-elf/half-human is stretching it, and half-orc/half-anything is completely out of the question.

The other just happened to be 16.66% god, or does his god parent qualify as 133.33% God?

I really like that list. Lots of good guidelines.

I think I'm gonna have to spend some time doing some tweaking. Mostly on my explanations.

As for suggestions, none right now.
