    Fayophobia - A fear of elves. Orcs who suffer with this are mocked by their friends dressing up in dresses, feeding them honeycake and singing at them sweetly, until they are so scared they go beserk.

    Chaotic lolis? Isn't that every anime ever? (Sorry. The loli jokes will never stop, so long as you're "lord of the loli-er, lollies".)

    Bogyphobia - A fear of orcs (but also goblins and demons). Pretty sure I'd be scared of them also if I didn't have my trusty sword!

    That's a good question. What alignment would you say a ninja is? Because Chupa Chups' best spokesperson ever would be Zool. I'd say Neutral Good, Lawful Neutral or Lawful/Neutral Evil.

    Gnomes, sorry Anduin but whoever said that they ain't Tolkien hit the nail on the head, plus I can never picture my legendary Bhallspawn as a shorty (apart from dwarfs cuz they're awesome :D)

    And how is that Tolkien wrote an entire language for Gnomes and never used them is what I wonder the most, since he DID had the idea of gnomes, but they never made it to his stories IIRC.

    I'm not sure Tolkien deserves as much praise as he gets. People have made good fantasy before, while and after he was around. Sure, the IP he created is pretty good (subject to opinion of course), but so is Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Planescape, Warhammer, Eternity, World of Darkness and a bunch of others that doesn't come to mind at the moment.

    D&D's noems are a good version, as good as the little cretins get anyway, while Warcraft's is horribly terrible. I can't really think of any others as most tend to be fairly similar to the D&D ones. Are there other settings out there that does them very differently? Anduin, you might know?

    Anthropophobia - A fear of humans. Ents and Giants sometimes squeal when they see a human. Just stamp on it!
    The gnomes in The Dark Eye are rather different from those in D&D, I guess. In this PnP tabletop they are a Kobold subrace, rather tiny, and in many regards more similar to Rumpelstiltskin than Jan Jansen.

    He did? I know in the Book of Lost Tales all the names are switched around, so the Noldor were actually referred to as Gnomes (and the Vanyar were called the Teleri and the Teleri were called the Solosimpi, very confusing).

    @lolien‌ Damn i forgot Syd Barret wrote a Gnome song! I may have to revise my opinions lol.

    @CrevsDaak‌ I didn't realise Tolkien had written Gnome stuff!? I've only read the Ring quadrology, Children of Hurin and about 20 pages of the Silmarillion lol.

    That's pretty cool though, seems like he covered all the bases of modern fantasy.

    @jobby‌ I just confused the names given in the Book of Lost Tales with FR gnomes. :p

    @Anduin‌ I assume the term "high" elves was ironic then :P

    I wouldn't call it a phobia, but original the gnome's didn't have female models. So I never played them: it might make sense for a dwarven gal to have a beard, but certainly not a gnome lass! (Now, her nose, on the other hand...)

    In general, though, I don't play the short races because romance mods aren't made for them. :( So it's usually human, elf, and half-elf... the occasional half-orc if a romance mod allows it.
