harkovastThat forum software so needs the “Preview” button! My ranting is for naught now.
Haha, I actually put that and then talked to Julie and reconsidered a better solution and changed it, apparently just as you were writing your response.
The new solution is quite fine, I think (if you're really rather not gonna kill the mother and child).
harkovastI'm referring specifically to the fact that Golta-in-X half-caste seemingly would strive to have a harder lifestyle than they normally have without the knowledge of why the Golta live like that in their homeland, but because it's seemingly their racial trait. Unlike Canuovea, I believe everyone has the lazy gene.
With regard to teh other point, I don't entirely see your problem.
harkovastAnd I've read this ages ago. You may be under the impression that I am a new reader and only recently came to the forums and got pissed at that half-caste thing (and breasts, yeah), but I only recently have had enough time to register and then formulate that rant. I never liked the way you made the half-castes work but it's your world, so…
I'm sort of surprised that this has suddenly become so controversial, as I wrote it ages ago!
I bet I would not have got this much hassle if I had written that dwarves have intrinsically different personalities from elves.
As for elves and dwarves, you just say so because you dislike them ;). And frankly, I've never seen a story where a dwarf raised among elves wants to go underground and mine, mine, mine. The reverse doesn't count - obviously an elf raised among dwarves would like to get up on surface, but that's only because they're too tall for the tunnels the dwarves dig.
