A great post (in need of spell checking). I like what you have done with these hobbit substitutes. They are not quite a new take because they are simply a better defined hobbit with some minor tweaks. Is there anywhere else we can take this write up?
I am hooking them into the minor race write ups because of the compactness of the write up and the race's position in the setting. Go to Comment
I like it. Good points for filling in a category. I like the idea and how it would be applied.
Yes it is background material. But that is not only okay, it is a great thing to post. The community has a mark propensity to produce Big Things that would define the setting should they be included. That means you can really only use "one". We should be producing little things; things just outside the dramatic spotlight. These submissions add an instant level of detail to the game for those who utilize them. Thus the GM could use dozens of the lesser things to fill elements of their world in. Go to Comment
Another real world thing. White tea. Can only be picked two days a year, the two days before the flowers blossom. Could be a similiar plant that...is the deadliest poison known, cure known diseases or psychosis, or a potent herb that just tastes awesome.
