    And that doing so would be a bad idea in the first place, what with birds and insects.

    In Canada at least, you need to submit all the proper forms and inform the local airports and the city council, and apply for a special permit if you want to fly using magical means.

    Recently I started dating a girl over the internet. We had a lot in common; video games, movies, music, stuff like that. A month ago, we decided it was time to share pics. It was then that I learned she was a Tiefling. I expressed my surprise (having grown up in a small town) and she thought that It was a negative thing. I reassured her that that was not the case. Anyway, I think this has really brought us even closer together, and we are meeting for the first time next week.

    I bet she smells like burning paper.

    You can cut it however you like, but it's been scientifically proven again and again that orcs are both more violent and have less mental capacity then other humanoids.

    I believe different persons require different rights. If I ran a piano lifting service and refused a faerie a job no one would complain, but if I refuse an orc because of their intelligence, it's discrimination. I get branded a racist.

    They're not genetically stupid its just a lack of education because Goblinoids have always been vilified and repressed by the "Good" Races so they have to work hard from the day they are born to even count as lower class citizens. I've never seen a dwarf that wasn't any less loud or violent than an Orc. The only difference is that Dwarves fall under the same mandatory education laws as Humanoids.

    Most fantasy species would have probably gone extinct by now. Most pests that aren't organized races with their own civilizations would have been killed off in centuries past. As soon as man had the ability do you think he'd tolerate dragons? No. Gnolls and kobolds and other such pests would have been decimated as well. So even if they are physically superior to orcs they probably only live on reservations.

    The other species might clash as well. Do you really think faeries would tolerate spiders and birds of prey, or cats being anywhere near them? In any community with a high faerie population such dangerous fiends are going to be killed off by the faeries to protect themselves. This would of-course lead to other problems...

    In most places humans probably don't like faeries around in great numbers.

    Elves due to their longevity probably dominate politics and the economy. Being able to live for so long means they an stay the president of a company for centuries, or stay in the senate or congress. They're probably the Illuminati.

    In my setting, the orc population dropped dramatically during the Age of Exploration where humans had the firepower to own them and the Manifest Destiny Fuck Year Humanity not to give a crap. Somewhere around the 1900s people started caring and orcs crept into first reservations then human cities. They're common in low income jobs and a popular restaurant chain is based on orcish foods.

    So, I got a call from my mom the other day. She and dad wanted me to come home for the holidays. I told them that I had work, but...they were pretty adamant about it. "If we're going to live here, we need to try to fit in," she said. Well, whatever.

    So I got in my car and went through my normal routine. First off was a skullcap. It was weird at first, using it to hide my ears, but I got used to it. Then I put on a baseball cap and a pair of sunglasses. Cliche for disguises, but they do a great job of masking your features when you don't want someone looking too closely at you. With everything in place, I started the engine and started down the road.

    Now, most folks at college are pretty open minded. I get weird looks and I hear people saying stuff about being a "point ears" or a "forest boy," but I let it slide. It's not worth it to get angry over every little insult. I used to do that when I was in high school, but I don't have to prove anything. I'm an Elf, so what. I can't change that and, even if I could, what else would I be? A dwarf? An orc? A...human? Hell no. I'm proud of who I am.

    Or, at least, I am most of the time. Between my hometown and my college, there's this nasty string of towns. I'm not even sure what they're actually called, but a lot of us non-humans just know it as the Belt. I don't know what happened here, but I have yet to meet someone from the Belt that isn't a xenophobe. They're on campus with signboards, talking about segregating the campus. A few weeks back, a few of them disguised themselves, shaved a dwarf, filmed it, and sent it to everyone on campus. It was absolutely mortifying. The guy was in my economics classes. Nobody has seen him since that video came out.

    Anyway, back to my story. I was in the Belt and I realized that I was running out of gas. Not the "Oh, I need to pull over in half an hour" way, either. I needed gas within about ten miles or the car was going to stop.

    So, against all of my better judgment, I pulled over at a gas station to fill up. Put on a heavy coat, made sure that my hat was down and hiding my ears, covered my eyes, everything. I got out and swiped my debit card. It was accepted. I don't know why, but I had been expecting them to reject it. I turned around and started pumping gas, and I leaned back against the car to wait it out. While I'm standing there, this woman and her kid come out of the building. The kid had a candy bar, the woman just looked...harried. Like a lot of mothers, I guess. Anyway, this kid looks straight at me and says, "Look, momma, it's an elf!" Now, this gas station is busy. Twelve pumps, and a car at every one of them. Every single head snaps around and every single one of them is staring at me. I don't know how the kid spotted me, but...he did, that's what matters. The guy across from me had just started pumping when the kid yelled it. He stopped pumping gas, said something about the place being a respectable establishment and left. Everyone else kept staring at me when they weren't watching their cars. It probably only took a few minutes to fill up, but it felt like I was standing there for hours. Right as I'm just about done, an old man just ahead of me started walking back. I knew it was going to be bad, but I didn't want to make a scene.

    "Hey, point ears," he said, loud enough that everyone heard it. "Hey, look at me you tree huggin' freak. Or don't they teach yer kind any respect?" I shouldn't have done it, but I snapped. "Listen, sir." I kinda spat it at him, he looked a little shocked. "I'd show you respect if you'd show it to me first."

    Well, then I was fucked. This old guy then spent about ten minutes swearing at me. He said that non-humans were like a cancer, something that we started out good but eventually turned bad on the humans. I wasn't really listening to him, though. I was doing everything that I could to separate my mind from the situation, to not take in his hate. When he finally turned away, I got in my car, took off my hat and skull cap, and just started driving. When I hit the edge of town, I was more mad than I had ever been. I couldn't think anything but how ignorant all of those people were, how plainly hateful they were.

    The rest of the drive was pretty much a blur. I'm surprised that I didn't get pulled over for speeding, but I guess that I just got lucky.

    Eh, people would probably vary. There are places in Indiana a black girl I knew felt incredibly unsafe. Friends who've been to London talk about neighborhoods run Islamic immigrants and they claim white people disappear there.
    I live in a pretty tolerant city with a weirdly compatible emphasis on being PC and on being individual. It kinda works; Elves and Dwarves and such would be welcome as anyone.
    That said, this isn't a great city to be black in. It's weird how the prejudices end up; Asians, fine. Mexicans, Hispanics, S. Americans -no one cares. Downtown no one cares much about the 10 bazillion flavors of exchange student milling about.
    But the black folks get watched. Orks would probably be in the same boat.

    By the time that I got home, I wasn't mad any more. Like I said earlier, getting mad is a waste of time and effort. I can't change the fact that I'm an elf and that old fucker couldn't change the fact that, well, he was an ignorant, xenophobic old prick.

    Anyway, I wasn't mad. I was just ashamed. Ashamed of the fact that I was different. Ashamed of the fact that I had snapped at this guy. Really, just...ashamed of what I was. I shouldn't have done it, but for the first time I actually hated myself for being an elf. A whole life of name calling and insults, and now all it took was this one old man to make me hate myself.

    Something to consider: Human "races" are mostly the result of isolation. We need that same isolation to keep the different fantasy species intact, so in a setting like this, humans have to have taken up a much smaller part of the world until recently.

    Take all of modern human global diversity, move it into an area the size of europe and turn back the clock 500 years, then let it catch up to today. Most of the human racism we see wouldn't exist in this setting, but if global expansion is recent there's plenty of room for species racism.

    You don't really see people of Saxon descent being racist towards Normans because almost no one can trace their accessory back far enough to tell, and if they can there isn't a noticeable difference in appearance.

    My sister was back in town for Thanksgiving and took my car for the day. This wasn't a problem until, while I was working on my film project after school- the f*cking teacher gave us a stupid short deadline and half the class had to stay after- The cherry half-elf chick, Sam, asked me for a ride home. "Sure!" I replied instantly, but as soon as I did, I remembered. "Aww crap, sorry..." I explained the situation to her, gritting my teeth. (contd)

    I'm not making anybody a racial analog, here. I see it as the other races filtering into human society, absorbing their cultures and modifying them into their individual contexts so that you can have a judaic elf family or a minotaur who speak with urban slang and uses street mannerisms. That doesn't make them black or what or mexican. The "squid" in question is just their particular boss, who they see as a slave driver. Many races fill the slot among the socially elite, not just Mindflayers.

    As soon as I walked in the door, my mom knew something was wrong. She's always been like that, though. Whenever I'm in an off mood, she can sense it before she can see me. Without saying anything, she came up to me to give me a hug. I stopped her before she could get to me and...

    I have never seen her look more heartbroken. I was hurting, she knew it, and she knew that I knew. That look was gone pretty quickly, though. She just smiled and patted my arm lightly. "Dinner will be ready in half an hour," she said quietly, trying not to cry. Disappointed in myself again, I went out the back door.

    Now would be a good time to say this, I guess. My dad is not my birth father. He was a fireman. One of the first elves in the area to become a fireman at that. Ironically, he died in a fire set as a "warning" to a dwarven family. My current "dad" is human. He himself is a great guy. The most open minded human that I have ever met, and evidenced by the fact that he loved my mom and loved me.

    Dave, my step-dad, was in the back by the timber, splitting logs to burn for the holiday. He looked up with a smile and waved, but the best that I could return was a shrug. He knew that something was up and sat down on a log, motioning for me to join him. "So," he said, "I'm going to guess that you hit some trouble on the way home."

    So I went into everything and explained it all. Somewhere in the middle, I just...I broke down. I started talking about how ashamed I felt all of a sudden to be what I was. If he hadn't stopped me, it would have gone a lot farther than that.

    "Listen, son," he said, putting his hands on my shoulders. "There are idiots in the world. Every sentient being has done something stupid at least once. Some people just have it bred into them a bit more than others, and they're stupid in ways are hard to get around. Your father knew that, but he knew that people are inherently flawed and always deserve another chance."

    When he brought up my dad, I lost it. I started crying, I'll admit it. He brought me into a hug and let me get it off of my chest, not saying anything. After a few minutes, once I was done, he just smiled.

    "So take this as a note: How hard must it be to be so full of hate that you can't go through a day without disrespecting someone for their heritage?" He patted my shoulder and flicked my ear lightly. "Be proud of those."

    She looked almost as disappointed as I did, so I figured that was a good sign for later. She promised to blink (maaagic texting) me later and grabbed a ride with the only other human guy in the class. I finished all the work I felt like doing and walked out of the class room. Luckily, I only lived maybe 5 minutes away by foot, so I zipped up my jacket and headed for the door. Oh shit. Johhny and his crew were loitering in the commons. Johnny Dermott was a high-elf and made sure everyone knew it. The guy ran with a crew of sycophants that seemed to change weekly- today it was a teefling, some thuggish halfling and wannabelf (wanna-be elf: humans that act like elves).

    Dwarves like percussion, and wind instruments. Most of their instruments require the player to be seated, similar to pianos. Dwarves are just now discovering rock & roll, because they're sticklers for tradition. They do it ten times better than we ever did.

    Elves love wind instruments. The Grand Elvish Orchestra is mostly flutes, sectioned by materials (wooden flutes don't sound like metal flutes or ceramic flutes) rather than instrument. Most serious performances last more than a day, but the commercial stuff is like JPOP. Mainstream elvish pop stars/lets are loved by everyone but the elves, who see them as cultural traitors.

    Gnomic instruments are run by clockwork, and all performers are one man bands.

    Traditional Orc music is either sword-on-shield or sword-on-sword. In the last hundred years, they've been steadily moving away from telling/retelling myths and legends, and are getting the hang of clever lyrics and simile.

    Halflings music is mostly about drinking, getting high, or having babies. All the instruments are based on improvised bar-room stuff. It sounds a lot like country music & Irish drinking songs combined.

    Warforged 'music' is a lot of energy and sound, but few lyrics. Typically they either shout something at the start and at the end, with just music between. Occasionally, they repeat the same words at intervals. It sounded like techno long before we had synthesizers.

    Considering that not only do the races look different but also have different lifespans, affinities, etc... even without magical assistance it would be difficult to 'fit in' to another race...

    As far as humans go, what another poster said was true: for this event to occur the other races would need to have their own established communities.

    If those communities were just suddenly interrupted by a deluge of new races, then humans would probably expect them to assimilate. Those who don't would be looked down upon. No doubt there'd be racism, it exists in EVERY SETTING IN TABLETOP EXISTENCE by stereotyping.

    Whenever I look at a picture of, say, an Orc... or a Werewolf... or an Illithid, even if I don't feel that way if I think about it, my gut reaction is 'evil' and 'fucking run'. Sadly, I have a similar feeling around black people, even though I have nothing against them.

    Same with the 'brighter' races such as elves/gnomes/centaurs. They seem more 'human-like' and for some reason the pictures shown in the Monster Manuals show them as valiant, not bloodthirsty... good, not evil. Even the example creatures tend to be Good/Evil appropriately.

    This needs to become a roleplay.

    Gnolls aren't usually allowed to perform publicly. Mostly because the band members tend to attack the audience or vice versa. Ozzy Ozbourne in his heyday described a Gnollish performance as 'needlessly violent and excessive'. The favored musical instrument is the tortured pig. That's not a literal translation of a cultural instrument's name, it's literally a pig being tortured. The advent of electric instruments has introduced the world to the shocked rabbit. Again, literally a rabbit being electrocuted.

    Kobolds play the blues, on instruments poorly rebuilt from broken ones. One industrious dwarven stagehand repaired Cloudy-scale Mrrkep's saxophone prior to a Tonight Show appearance. The kobold prodigy was found in a supply closet, driving nails into his own ears to deafen himself and lamenting the lost soul of his now 'dead' instrument.

    Minotaurs play guitars, and drums, and guitars, and drums. The average band has at least four drummers. Most of the songs are performed during ritual combat, with the vocalists arguing over the subject matter.

    Dwarves would make the best mettleheads. but i can see both dwarven metal and traditional music having allot of brass.

    I believe just about every race would exist, and be cultured in some part. Just as you still have native man living in the far off places of the world, so to you would still have pockets of mythical beings here and there.

    Kobolds: The lizard rat to the uninformed, these creatures are actually highly industrist, highly magical, and the favored servants of the strongest creature, the dragon. I could see these crafty little shits getting jobs in mining and industry. Working along side dwarfs as they hollow out mountains. Their skills with traps can easily be turned to less lethal machines, being small they can create some pretty delicate machinery. You would still have the sewer dwelling savages, but they would be like packs of wild dogs, hunted down ever so often.

    Goblinoids: I would see goblins being wiped out, their stupidity and small frames leading to their demise. Hobgoblins, being smarter, stronger, and more apt at creating cultures of their own, would be city states at start, warring with humanity and the other humanoid races, but after a long enough time, they would be absorbed and live like any Joe Blow. Bugbears would be cheap labor, and good for brutal sports.

    Orcs: A bit dim, but still capable to form society. They would be more of raiders in the early years, but as time progressed they would eventually be tamed for a most part. Terrorist actions by those who "Remember the glory days" might happen, but for the most part they intergrate.

    Ogres/Giants/Trolls: Strong, dumb, and hungry, I see them filling the roll of back room stockers, burger flippers, and other menial jobs. Just let a troll work at your fast food joint, and you don't need to pay him as much, he takes part of his pay in whatever gets thrown out. Sports, oh yes.

    Dwarves: Jews. All I gotta say. They love money, have money, and are willing to let you take a loan. But be sure to pay them back, or it's your knee caps.

    Gnomes/Halflings: House keeping!
