Category talk:Races

Is this really a useful category to have? Anything in this category will be in Bestiary as well, and it seems like the dividing line for what goes in Races is fuzzy and not useful. The bestiary seems unlikely to grow to unmanageable length, so this is really just non-information. --- Slartucker 15:51, 9 January 2006 (CST)

To be honest, it's more of a "political correctness" feature that allows us to add Nephilim, Slithzerikai and other sentient non-humans to the bestiary without it looking racist.
To make this more clear, we might change the name of the category to "Sentient Races", indicating that this is a subcategory for all Bestiary creatures who qualify as sentient. Arancaytar | Send Reply! --- That is not dead which can eternal lie... 15:57, 9 January 2006 (CST)
On second thought, maybe you're right. --- Slartucker 16:15, 9 January 2006 (CST)
