We don't server your kind in here, you'll have to wait outside
I've been reading the Crystal Shard from the Icewind Dale Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore. I actually picked up all three books at a used book fair for like $8.46 CDN. SCORE! Obviously I'm getting some great ideas as I'm reading the books. One that has come to mind (although I don't condone it) is racism. The fact that barely anyone speaks to Drizzt in Ten-Towns, he has few friends, and most of the residents shy away from and look upon Drizzt as a outsider. This really strikes a chord with me. I know for example that in some books (campaign settings) its suggested to "look down on other races with distrust" especially in human settlements. This brings up a interesting role play situation. For example in the adventures I've ran, my players are usually a dwarf and a elf, (wierdo combo). I've never really played up the apparent racism, although I'm considering it. Have you?
