To be honest I am a bit tired of the Elves are more in tune with arcane magic trope/cliché/whatever; but I understand where you are coming from, and if someone you knew and probably cared a lot for committed suicide due a spell such as Disjunction I too would be scared.

Still I prefer Eberron orc and Elfs (see the spoiler to see why)

Hmm now I am interested on how the Aequar population would react to the plaavan in Eberron, Orcs are druids, Goblinoid had the biggest empire seen on the continent and have a somewhat united empire, drows being tribal hunters in the jungle...hell Eberron has a country populated and ruled by monsters (I remember a mindflayer being the mayor of a town).
