So, what do you folks think of the ani-men overall? I can't guarantee I'll make every change or alteration you give me, but I will always consider it (more often than not, I do change it). Basically, I want to know what you think of the ani-men, and any ideas for changes in the future. Thanks --Hanzo187 22:55, 30 April 2008 (MDT)

For starters I feel this page should not be considered a race because it does not outline a specific race but rather a group of races. I feel with some work this page could be made into a type or subtype. If you wanted to not modify this page to much I would consider moving it to other. Or, additionally, you could make this include new variant rules and move it to rules. I just feel that this page does not work as a race. --Green Dragon 13:36, 1 May 2008 (MDT)
That's fair enough. This is more of a "hub" than anything else. The ones I've shown could be seperate races unto themselves, but they share a bit of common ground in that they were victims of scientific experiments. Is this page in and of itself a race? No. It's an avenue to the races I've made. I guess I should've been more clear on that. Sorry.
I fail to see why the Savage Species rules for anthropomorphs don't fit for this as well. If there is already a system for integrating animal and human characteristics, why create a new one? --Ganre 23:52, 1 May 2008 (MDT)
I know you've mentioned this, but I have no clue what Savage Species is. I've never seen it or heard of it. Considering I've only been playing for about a year, I only have a handful of books. I'm guessing SS is 3e and not 3.5, which is probably why I haven't heard of it. Even so, these races are drawn from animals based off the Zodiac, Greek mythology, legends, and general superstition. They have some to do with animals, but it's secondary to the myth and legend part (ex. lion-man's Courage ability, wolf-man's Fight in Packs, rabbit-man's Rabbit's Foot, monkey-man's See No Evil, Speak No Evil, Hear No Evil, among others). Sharks, in legend, were said to warn sailors of incoming danger, while rats are believed to leave sinking ships. It's the animal myths that inspired these, not the animals themselves. Besides, I don't think it's a bad thing to try this. I like making unique stuff, so I don't see anything wrong with making these, though I could use a little help with the shark-man. Thanks.
