I dunno if this is a real problem. Look at the size of Champions or the
new version of GURPS. They're pretty sizeable too. Doesn't seem to slow
sales too much.

Dragonnewts are central and alien, and must be included.

Aldyami are also alien, and must be described to set them clearly apart
from "elves" ( a term we perhaps should try to avoid, for the same reason )

Dwarves are alien, but not so far from prior conceptions as the aldryami.
Humans probably have the least contact with these guys, as well. Drop 'em.

Ducks are stupid and fun, though I have always hated them. Put 'em in.
