    Don't like the size of their heads, otherwise nothing to complain about for me.

    Hmm I don't seem to remember any of those incidents, then again it's been well over 10 years since I last read a dragonlance novel, and far from all of them have been translated to Danish.. Perhaps I should give them another look.

Elves suck in DnD because they have no real personality. Halflings and Gnomes too.

    The reason why barbarian Halflings are prefered is because the act of making them non-bodyswitching humans makes them better as a race. Halflings typically get, when they get anything, a Racial identity of "To what lengths are you willing to go to survive?".

    Elves are best when they are both not necessarily tree huggers (although this can itself be woven into their identity without problem, it is kinda expected anyway), but also bring up time based questions and ideas, such as how they dont look down on other races, but feel the other races are too short sighted.

    Dwarves are best in terms of bringing up Socio-economic questions.

    Gnomes i still dont have an idea asto what they are there for.

    Illithids + Vampires i actually see as better races for the final slot. They both bring up the same question, but it is a good one: Are you truly evil, if the only way for you to survive is through taking the life of sentinent beings?

    Halflings are pretty good, but the gnome is far better.
