Concerning fluff[edit]

I wrote up some thematic description for the race, building on what was already there as well as the qualities of actual deer. I really wanted to take cervitaurs further away from centaurs (as otherwise what's the point), which I hope I've accomplished here. I also changed some things, which I hope no one disagrees with. I'll just leave the stub template up for someone else to decide whether this is enough to address the issue. Cancelion (talk) 02:18, 30 May 2018 (MDT)

There seems to be some disagreement over the age of the cervitaur, with an impending edit war over the issue. I thought I'd outline my opinions on the issue, as I was the one to change the "maximum" age from 200 to much lower. D&D (and fantasy in general) is filled with races that live older than humans - perhaps for wish-fulfillment purposes, perhaps inspired by Tolkien's elves, perhaps just because venerable things feel more magical to some. I like to create fantasy races of all age ranges: creatures with lifespans of a few weeks, a couple of decades, human-like, in the hundreds, and immortal. A race inspired by deers, which this one is, makes sense to me as a shorter-lived one. It fits the natural bent, as well as with their "living in the moment" theme. If you feel differently, I'd love to hear your opinion. Cancelion (talk) 02:23, 2 July 2018 (MDT)
Yup, that's perfectly fair. I've banned the IP in question and protected the page from IP edits. If any other issues arise I'll deal with as an admin them so dw. —ConcealedLightChatmod.png (talk) 03:33, 2 July 2018 (MDT)
