To heck with Halfings, let's hear more about DWARVES

To heck with asslings! Let's hear about dwarves, the bestest of the stout folks! And while i'm putting in a request, what about the pimpest of all Dwarven gods...Clangeddin, the Dwarven god of war.

i'm a devout lover of all things dwarven, and ever since i started playing pnp dnd almost...*thinks*....whoah...it's been almost 10 years (i started playing when i was about 12-13), i've always always made a dwarf warrior of some sort.

so yeah, DWARVES HHOOOO!!

Gnomes, Gnomes, Gnomes!

We're descended from Dwarves and can have Stone Dwarf children - but we're Gnomes! Damn freaky, isn't it?

Since Dwarves and Gnomes can mate, then technically speciation hasn't occured. We're the same species. So....yeah! Dwarves, Dwarves, Dwarves! Let's hear more about Dwarves!

Does that mean that humans and elves are the same species? This has serious ramifications for the war...

We are all part orc?!

That is my opinion, not nessasarily anyone else's opinon, might just be, but that would be a coincodence, and damnit, sometimes the crap I write is not even my opinion either.

*cocks head to side and listens*

Aye, the Spirit Squirrel tells me that if Humans and Elves can have children, then they are the same species. Same thing with Orcs and Humans. But I don't think Elves and Orcs can breed.

*scratches head*

I hadn't thought of that. Seems then like you've got Human, Elves, and Orcs in one camp - although I think Elves and Orcs are far enough from each other that they can be considered truly different species - Gnomes and Dwarves in another camp, and Halflings in a third camp.

Hmmm...that doesn't make all Humans part Orc though, just means that they share common ancestry. Then again, I never understand half of what the Spirit Squirrel's talking about. Crazy little astral sasquatsch. Who knows what this could mean for the war. Maybe we should ask some Half-Elves?

Or maybe interbreeding only occurs with divine intervention, and they really are all different races?

Thank Fegall I can be certain of one thing: there's no Human, Elf, Orc, or Halfling in me! (No offense.)

Bottom line is this is FANTASY, not science. Science doesn't apply, so if you feel like engaging in mental masterbaton go ahead.... doesn't mean I gotta give scientific reasons for what I do. And, btw, I am a scientist IRL.

Question is can halforcs breed? If they can not then they are like mules and not a species. To be a species they mest be able to interbreed where offspring are able to reproduce also.

Like orl said...it's just a fantasy...it's not the real thing..ohhohohoh

Yes half orcs can breed. And human and dwarves can breed as well. But the funny thing is dwarves have the "uberseed" for lack of a better term. Human + dwarf = dwarf, tho slightly taller than average. Dwarves are the only race that can't get bred out..heh. Of course Humans have the "semi-uberseed" powerful, but it's no dwarf jizz!

Fighters do it face to face, Rogues may do it from behind, Rangers can do it from a distance, Wizards do it from out of nowhere, Clerics may not do it at all, Barbarians may do it in a rage, Sorcerers can do it on a whim, Bards on a note, but Paladins have to pay for it!

*eating nuts while head snaps back and forth*

Uberseed, yeah. Fantastical breeding laws.

*head spins*

Can we get a Stone Dwarf volunteer to breed with a Half-Nymph and see what comes out?

I think the result might be my ideal woman.
