D&D 30 Day Challenge: Day 20

Who's more human
than Fleetwood,
the warrior?
My favourite humanoids are... well, humans.
Humans are usually exempt from the stereotypes that plague almost every other humanoid race, and I far prefer human NPCs and enemies for my campaigns.
There is a danger, though, or at least I perceive it as such, while others could consider it a positive feature: too many humans could mean a dearth of fantastic elements, a lowering of the fantasy rating and a shift toward a more “historical” setting. In the past years I was a committed supporter of low fantasy worlds, but since my discovery of OSR I have been enjoying more and more the richness and the diversity of a “classical” fantasy setting.

Humans remain my “favourite” humanoids, but they are by no means alone in the world...
