While researching a CD, I noticed something that intrigued me...

Under the Memnoor Brownie entry, it says that some Memnoor inter-marry with other races. Using magic, the larger races can become Brownie size and vice versa. And, the entry for Whisper, the wife of Greybark, lists her as half Brownie and half dwarf. But, under the racial crossbreeding chart, Brownies are not listed under any of the possible races to crossbreed.

So my question: Would it be possible to create a character who is part Brownie? Are Brownies officially a possible choice with which to crossbreed?

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

I'm sorry, that information is pretty much out-dated. At least, I've been told that this is not possible. Whisper was written about years ago, and the magic has developped in a different direction since, so I'm afraid Brownies are not possible to crossbreed with :)

And not just because of the size difference.. Brownie fysiology is completely different from most races, and not compatible with any of them.

Yeah, Whisper is more or less considered a one-time miracle, so crossbreeding definitely isn't meant to happen between these races.

And dwarves cannot crossbreed with any other races at all anyhow, not even hobbits or something closer to their own size range.  The physiology is compatible (smirks) but not the genetics, so it's strictly recreational.  Again, we had to do some serious finagling to explain Whisper!

Sorry, Azhira!  :( I hope you can come up with an alternate idea for whatever your concept was...
