I really enjoyed this and the Fristle sub. Classy presentation, fairly original.

Interesting, though a little light as playable races go here.

I have a question about the following:

"Possibly for this reason, they are highly prized as mercenaries and in many positions (such as wizardry, craft guilds or politics) which confer status. "

Why would anyone prize them? It seems more likely they would prize these professions for the reason given.

Interesting, but it seems more of an intro then an in-depth treatment. I would love to see more.

Because it's something of a truism in life that someone who presents himself with supreme self-confidence and arrogance will by that fact alone convince a lot of folks that he's something special. (Heck, isn't the advertising industry based on the premise that you'll think a product's great just because some paid actors tell you it is?)

Bringing it more to the point, what impresses people more? Those who are good fighters, or those who LOOK impressive? Trot out a guy who looks like The Rock, put him in a dapper uniform with lots of shiny medals, and folks would just assume he's a complete badass.

Fox-men? are there no fox-women? Another one dimensional furry race

I'm fairly persnickety about language, which I see this site is as well. "Men" has been used as the neuter collective for "men and women" for centuries.

What other dimensions would you like to see? Other than these snippets of tendencies, the three races I posted have, by and large, assimilated into the dominant local cultures, and don't have a raft of unique cultural or psychological practices distinguishable from them. It would be like ascribing a set of detailed, specific practices to "humans."

What a narrow street! The bowed windows of the upper floors encroach on the view of the bowed windows opposite, making it all very dark and shady down here in your carriage. You feel it slow down and stop, and there are raised voices outside. Craning your neck out of the door you see a smug cartsman ahead, whose cart is blocking just enough of the narrow street to make your passage impossible. He appears to be waiting for you to move, but your driver is hurling abuse at him and your horses are getting restless...
