I remember a thread like this awhile back where people trivialized, and then defenders defended with over-trivialization. And then it came down to no matter what race was made, it always looked like something else, and no race can ever be original in the history/future of gaming or fantasy.
I'm pretty sure the OP and others basically want a race of spiders or birds that just look like spiders and birds and have no features in common with a humanoid. Because if they did, they'd be called elves or humans.
How about Quaggan? Oh they're just whale people, so not original.
Please, anyone who is complaining, show me a race anywhere you think is original and I'll tell you "This feature makes it look like this" and is "ugly".
