	I think TSR happened to them.  The race seems like something out
of a bad dream.  Ever try to imagine what they look like?  The book says
that they have gnome-like heads, bodies covered with scales, and webed
feet.  Somebody just made 'em up out of nothing.  I don't think they file
any niche in my reality, and I may simply remove them.  But that's just
me... (:  I'd love to hear othe opinions.
