One question: What is the other half in a half-Elf?  Is it Human?  Orc?  Dwarf?  Brownie?  Cow?!?! What in all the hells is it?!?!?

Simple answer: Human, of course.

Mostly human I would say. I don't see why an elf can't mate with a dwarf or an orc if so inclined and produced half-babies from those unions. But perhaps it would rarer and harder for the womb to quicken because of the inter-racial species difference. Humans I supposed are easier because their physiology are the most similiar to elves?

As for cows....erm....that would depends on the cow I think :)

Brownies too! With magical help to get the body size similar first. Very rare though....only in the Aeolian settlement, and rare there.

Brownies are weird. But did the Brownies got weird because Greybark worked on them, or was it the other way around. Or were they simply made for eachother? ;)

Thanks for the replys.  I asked other RPers and they just gave me general, muttering at the end answers. THanks again!!!

Would any of the other ones be possible? (other than the cow)

Possible, yes, but they wouldn't be called half-elves, I guess...

Sorry, no, dwarves are not sexually compatible with any other race or species.   There are no such things as half-dwarves in Santharia.  

Well, let me elaborate a bit - if you read the post labeled DWARF SEX (grin) you'll see why.  Physically I imagine they could...er... interact, but conception would not take place.

Which brings to mind a question I wanted to ask back when we were talking about all that conception and gestation stuff.  If other species are compatible with human - doesn't that imply that halflings, for example, menstruate?  Have a monthly cycle, release eggs, etc.?

Not trying to be crude here, just let's think about this.  It's one thing to haul magic in to help out the size inconsistency with Brownies (closing eyes, shuddering, not even wanting to TRY to visualize this) but to involve magical interference everytime a mixed-race child is conceived would be a bit far-fetched, no?  

SOOOOO.... either they have exactly the same system as human, or they aren't compatible at all...that would be my take on the situation.  If you want mixed-races, just ensure that Ava dreamed them all pretty much to the same design.

This incompatibility, by the way, is one more piece of evidence that dwarves hold up as proof that TolBarol created them, and one more reason not to believe in everyone else's gods.... (fits pretty neatly, eh?)

This poses also the question about Theo's development of the halflings - according to the myth halflings were dwarves first, but developed differently. They finally even lived together with orcs in the Silvermarshes, from where the Mullogs originated. Is this story ok to you from the dwarven point of view, Judith?

If we take the tolkien view I guess that elves would be compatible with orcs, as they were elves corrupted by Melkor. It depends how closly related they are on Sorren I guess! But ask yourself how likely an elf is to sleep with anything other than their own race...they can appear a little arrogant, and would you really want to sleep with an ugly orc. Maybe Dark elves, who like their power maybe?

I wouldn't have said elves were compatible with dwarves or brownies, they'd need step ladders, and Brownies don't have that much outside world contact, but feel free to correct me Greybark.

Humans are generally the most likely alternative. Elves, especially the quaelhoirhim smile on gallant humans....plus they are very physically similar.

Sorry, not trying to step on anyone else's creative toes!

Personally - I think the dwarves wouldn't think much of this, (the Mullogs) and would probably see them as "poor relations" or the "side of the family we don't talk much about" if at all!

But certainly, it could be worked out.  Perhaps the other half of the Mullog family tree has the same reproductive system as dwarves?  (Sorry, I forget exactly what they were, orcs?)

And if evolution exists in Santharia (rolls eyes, then remembers to be tolerant) then perhaps the story of the Mullogs is a 'myth' to explain a deviation from the 'pure' dwarven race - or, for that matter, a deviation in the orcish genetic material to produce stunted, swampdwelling orcs!

I'll have another look at your guys, Theo, and I apologize, because I didn't realize that they were part dwarf and would be affected by my wholesale disclaimer!

Apologies from the Bard
