You said yourself that brownies originated from other races (transformed by a wizard), so there is no element involved directly in their creation.

As for gnomes: Gnomes have similarities with dwarves, so the element of earth could play an important role. Gnomes also have something of orcs (fire), but also of humans (water), I guess. Of course spirit (wind) also plays a (smaller) part, but I guess a gnome would answer this question better.

Updating the Compendium entry is ok (don't forget e.g. how old they can get etc.) - please copy the text from the Compendium and improve it! This way already corrected errors/misspellings won't show up (again)...

Yup, I forgot that part. I will see if I can add some extra data on gnomes and get the painting ready... But that'll probably have to wait till next week. I'm having exams right now...

Well, now that I'm finally convinced that mixing elves and dwarves would be pointless as it would only make humans, I need to figure out a different origin....may scrap the whole made by a wizard idea.....currently letting it bubble in my subconscious......

Well, you could let elves mix with humans and dwarfs mix with humans and those results mix with eachother. Since it happened a long time ago, this could be the sole lineage that persisted, while other variants (pure small elves, pure small dwarves, half-elves etc) could be extinct. (Kind'a Darwinistic approach?)

And if you really wanna drop the mage idea, maybe they came into existence by "Wild Magic", an uncontrolled form of magic, which can be both harmful and harmless and comes into being when the balance of magic is upset (like a mage casting lots of powerful spells, thus draining (all) magic in an area).

Yeah, that's more or less the original idea.....
It seems to have too many holes in it though.

How about this one: When the lightning strikes the tree of life, burning it to half, there is a tremendous backlash of magic. Many strange effects ripple out from the tree, changing many things in their path. Among many other things is the creation of brownies....

This avoids the whole question of other races....
so what do you think?

Yes, that sounds reasonable. Just like the dragons e.g. who sprang from the burning leaves of the Tree of Life... Would be interesting to explain in the myth of the beginning of the world how the brownies e.g. derived from ashes which dropped from the first humans who were already enlighted with the spirit of Avá - and thus "small" humans came to life... Or something similar...

I knew elfin racism could be overcome!
"Deld is the name often given to the product of an elf/dwarf union. Much rarer than normal muls, Delds do not have the incredible endurance attributed to most muls - their elven parentage ensures this. It is because of this that Delds are so rare - human/dwarf muls are bred mainly for their ability to work for incredible amounts of time, in addition to their ability to recuperate from any exertions in a relatively short time period. As such Deld are usually only born out of a non-forced union between an elf and dwarf - an uncommon occurrence to say the least."

Brownies, however, remain as they have evolved....no tracing back to other races now....but its nice to have someone agree with you :D

*hehe* You never give up, eh? Still a weird combination - can't really imagine an elf searching eagerly for treasures - or a dwarf with pointed ears... *harhar*

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
