    LMAO...anyways....

    Yeah, very tricky question.... cause I judge most characters on personality not race....but I went with human....you've got Raistlin, Caramon, and Sturm..all very interesting characters. Humans are the ones with the shortest life span therefore they seem to have more to live for since they will not live for hundreds of years. They don't take their time doing things they are constantly trying to get the most out of life before their time runs out. But that's my opinion.

    Valid points. Really what i was thinking, but we're human, and that really ruins it all for me.

    If I chose favorite race by my favorite chars, human would when hands down. I love Tas, but Raistlin is the most amazingly awesome character of any book in any genre I have ever read.

    You've just won my vote Graft...Raistlin is my favourite character of all time as well, I have yet to find anyone to equal his awesomeness. I have a few favourites in FR but Raistlin is hard to beat. He is just a very complex character and very different from a lot of the characters I have read about.

    LOL, meh....there are cool humans...

    Kender are like halflings, and yet not like them.
    For example, Tas is nothing whatsoever like Bilbo.
    Kender are much slighter than Halflings, sort of like a Pixie crossed with a Tolkien Halfling.

    Sorry for the double post but I voted for Gullie Dwarves as Bupu ,or whatever her name was ,was great fun.Tas ,as I remember ,was particularily amused by her antics and they too are a bit of a unique oddity in the world of Krynn.

    Kenders and Halflings are nothing alike at all, Halflings like to live in homes and have hairy toes and hate adventures and are afraid of a lot of things, Halflings are like little humans for the most part, Kenders on the other had are completely different, first off they have pointed ears, they hate to stay in one place to long, they are afflicted with what is called wanderlust, Kenders have an insatiable curiousity that can never be satisfied and are always in trouble or underfoot, where halflings like comfortable lifestyles and arent curious about anything. Also unlike every other race in fantasy, Kenders have no fear, its their nature, that what makes them the best of all irritating creatures, If there is trouble in town its probably a Kender

    Minotaurs are a very cool race. I wish there were more RPG games in which they are available as a player character.

    Theres a RPG called Rune Quest, it's very good for playing as a myriad on none human characters ,Minotaurs amongst them.
    It runs along the same style as Cthulhu but in a fantasy world without the sanity issues.

    I picked minotaurs because i read a dragonlance short story, and in it was a minotaur innkeeper. if they are civilised enough to be in a town, then i suppose they arn't really monsters.

    I'd have to say the kender. (Partiularly Tas :) ) They're personalities are just so amusing; it's hard not to be enthralled by them.

    Dragonlance elves were a lot more interesting than Tolkein's imo, but I still don't like them. I'm all about draconians, a nice interesting race, though not as cool as the Draconum of MK they're still really cool

    Kendermore is the most funny book Ive ever read. I was reading it while I went to work and I was laughing in the train. Not only they are completely fearless but crazy and cute and adorable. And their city is just hilarious to live in..

    Annoying at times, but I chose Kender. At the time they were very refreshing to see.
