  1. Great list. I think they'll keep coming too.

    My favourite so far is probably the impressionable young shoggoth, third in the list here:

  2. Dogfolk post doesn't exist anymore and has been replaced by a larger, slowly being updated masterpost for animal races

    The other Jammer races are listed too, but it's mostly the animal folk.

  6. is this here still the master list for class/races?

    I have a request! House elf. (I favour one that uses HP for spell points but I don't have time right now to write it!)
    And Impressionable Young Shoggoth is amazing - seconding Porky.
