Elf, Dwarf, Wizard, or Something Else?

Fantasy is filled with a variety of races.  The standard high fantasy consists mainly of humans (man), elves, dwarves, and occasionally things like trolls, goblins, gnomes, fairies, dragons, demons, and others.  Often, man is in an uneasy alliance with elves and dwarves, while elves are suspicious of dwarves, and likewise dwarves are suspicious of elves.  Trolls, goblins, gnomes, dragons, and demons tend to be the enemy.  Fairies are on the side somewhere, not playing a very major role in most cases.  And then there are wizards, the wise magical men, while their female counterparts are witches.

But do you really like these stereotypical races?  Tolkien pretty much started it all, and it grew with Brooks, Salvatore, and others, along with RPGs such as Dungeons and Dragons.  It’s everywhere now.  But what do you think?  What’s your favourite fantasy race, or do you prefer something else?  Leave a comment and take this poll.
