So, now there's another wave of outrage sweeping the forums: the kender will be in the next playtest packet for DnDNext. OH MY GRAWD! THE KENDER! They are so... so... well, actually, I don't know much about 'em, because they've never been in any game I ran or played in, and when I skimmed the description in the 1e rules for Dragonlance, I thought "That's stupid" and never bothered with them.
What I don't get is why there's a huge outrage against the kender showing up (As a core race? Dunno, don't care) and no similar outrage over the warforged being in the same upcoming packet. Because what annoys me about the kender is the same thing that annoys me about the warforged: it's way too setting specific and should be in supplemental materials. But then, that's what annoys me about the tieflings and the dragonborn and many, many other elements. They should be on the fringes, for those who have need of such things, but should not be core.
