Hey, I use them /very/ sparingly. They're my favorite mostly because they're not used all that much in most of the fantasy me or my group has read, and as a result they can provide a lot of interesting and new fluff and folklore. They're definitely the sort of thing you pull out very, very rarely.

It's pictures like the one you posted that make me glad I've never came across a Warforged with a crossbow (or firearm, depending on the setting).

Warforged would basically be the most efficient snipers. They don't need to eat, drink or defecate so they can remain in one spot for days, perhaps even weeks without complaint. They have no circulatory system, so there's no pulsing bloodstreams to upset the steadiness of the crossbow, and the wooden components of their body would aid tremendously in blending in.

I should put a Warforged snoipah in my next campaign, in an encounter paying homage to The End from MGS3.

On topic though:
I've always been a supporter of the underdog, and it's hard to get more underdog than the various breeds of Kobolds. For some reason, I can't help but imagine them as being hopelessly optimistic despite all the shit they're put through, like they're convinced that the spiked pit-trap is going to kill that lvl-19 adventuring party.

I'm just going to grab stuff from the wiki because my classical schooling didn't cover more than a few Roman phases. My SO teach in high-school mostly covered general history of man and Swedish cultural history, so admittedly my real knowledge is poor. Feel free to correct me.

In ancient Greek mythology, Lamia (Greek: Λάμια) was a beautiful queen of Libya who became a child-eating daemon. Aristophanes claimed her name derived from the Greek word for gullet (λαιμός; laimos), referring to her habit of devouring children.[1]

Some accounts say she has a serpent's tail below the waist.[2] This popular description of her is largely due to Lamia, a poem by John Keats published in 1819.[3] Antoninus Liberalis uses Lamia as an alternate name for the serpentine drakaina Sybaris; however, Diodorus Siculus describes her as having nothing more than a distorted face.[4]

Later traditions referred to many lamiae; these were folkloric monsters similar to vampires and succubi that seduced young men and then fed on their blood.[5]

Zeus then gave her the ability to remove her eyes. The purpose of this ability is unclear in Diodorus, but other versions state Lamia's ability to remove her eyes came with the gift of prophecy. Zeus did this to appease Lamia in her grief over the loss of her children.[6]

In later stories, Lamia was cursed with the inability to close her eyes so that she would always obsess over the image of her dead children. Some accounts (see Horace, below) say Hera forced Lamia to devour her own children. Myths variously describe Lamia's monstrous (occasionally serpentine) appearance as a result of either Hera's wrath, the pain of grief, the madness that drove her to murder, or - in some rare versions - a natural result of being Hecate's daughter.[7]

Dear elegan/t g/entlemen, I'm in need of your advice.
I was arranging my fantasy pics folder (task long overdue) along the lines 'people_elf_wizard' and 'creature_dragon_winged' when I came across a gnoll and had no idea what to classify it (or a kobold, or an orc). So, in your opinion what fantasy races are people and aren't?

>> No.21516697

Well, depends on what you interpret as people? Are gnolls intelligent? Are they worthy of being played as a character?

I would personally define all three of your examples as people, even though I hate orcs and think they should only ever be of generic enemy race status. But they're all intelligent to some degree or another, are humanoid, and could be roleplayed. You wouldn't roleplay an ooze, or a rustmonster (Unless they were enlightened, then go on ahead).

>> No.21516737

I sort my hon-human characters by Genus. IE: Dragontits are reptilian, so their folder goes into the same sub-folder as Lizardmen and certain dragons, and Gnolls are Feliforms, so they're in the same folder with catfolk and Rakashakalakashaka.

For creatures like Orcs and Goliaths, I but them in a sub-folder for 'near-humans'. Warforged and Golems have their own Constructs subfolder.

Answering your question: If it's sentient, it's human enough for the sake for categorization, but try and keep it seperate from actual humans for ease of finding it.

>> No.21516820


Gnolls are people too, maaaaaaaan.

But seriously, a good metric for the purpose of reference pictures and such a categorization would probably be:

Is it intelligent like people? Can it utilize similar tools/armor/etc?

Because while dragons are intelligent they can't really function in a human city without shapeshifting. But on the other hand, assuming there's not a whole kill-on-sight thing going on a gnoll or orc or kobold can totally function in a human city, wear similar armor and wield similar weapons, etc.

Basically if it looks like it could walk around the city, be a guard, a barkeep, etc, it's people.

no they cant
especially not >totally

that would be like saying intelligent dogs would be no problem in a urban area, or monkeys running around town wouldnt cause problems

first of all THEY ARE NOT HUMAN
the problem with that is not acculturation or something, the problem is simply that they are of a different species and therefore the more "humanoid"or anthropomorphized they are the more they will be a problem for each other, and the only way to avoid frequent strife, conflicts, wars, riots and extermination campaigns would be to have a hierarchic structure or heavy segregation

the other obvious thing is that they smell, they are fucked up hairy disease carriers and they breed like rats

there is no reason they would not be kept as slaves by the elves and humans, or exterminated

you simply cant let wild animals roam around a urban area, if they are of human level intelligence and ability thats 100 times worse

humans dont even tolerate other humans, why would they ever tolerate a gnoll, unless its owned and trained or has a good reason to be there backed up by shit like paperwork

same goes for humans in orc/gnoll/cobold/wathever majority areas

one way they could function would be if they are a population that is bred for a function, kept by someone the way youd keep fighting dogs or war horses, or if its a small population that has some specific role in local culture or religion etc...

>the problem with that is not acculturation or something [...]

I by functioning in a city I meant that they could utilize the city. As in you know, walk in doorways, utilize facilities, walk down the street without taking it up entirely, wear clothing and armor, etc. Basically if their physiological structure can accomodate all the things people do.

I was taking the question in *absence of social concerns*

But hey, since we're here..

>the other obvious thing is that they smell, they are fucked up hairy disease carriers and they breed like rats

Haha, what. You're really projecting here, bro. Something that isn't human is by no means required to smell or be diseased, or breed like rats. At least not any more than any other filthy muck raking human peasants.

People just didn't smell good in general until the ability to bathe became not-a-luxury.

>there is no reason they would not be kept as slaves by the elves and humans, or exterminated

Unless of course, said humans and/or elves are sane and reasonable people who can work with others instead of carrying out genocidal campaigns but obviously you're not the kind of person who can go without fantastic racism, I guess.

But you could at least be entertaining about it. Sarge manages to amuse in her all-caps rants on goblins and why they need to be exterminated.

>humans dont even tolerate other humans, why would they ever tolerate a gnoll, unless its owned and trained or has a good reason to be there backed up by shit like paperwork

Humans totally tolerate other humans. We'd all be dead otherwise. Tons of nations have access to nuclear weapons capable of ending human civilization in a matter of minutes and yet we endure. People are not so ridiculously hateful as you'd like to believe, anon.

Just because humanity is capable of incredible cruelty and violence does not make it the norm - we abhor these acts because it isn't.
