This really doesnt need to be that hard lads, it's simple
We all know some of you are not happy with the current appearance of the elves since they look too human and that should be for a different discussion it has nothing to do with what the OP is expressing!
But as we currently have it the elves do look human! And do represent certain features! And if they do decide to keep the state of the elves it would be nice to have more inclusive and diverse elves! THAT IS ALL!
It doesnt need to get political
This is dnd my g, its about thinking outside the box and playing a fantasy game, let me repeat FANTASY! You can literally do whatever you want and it's different for everyone! Dont be mad at people for wanting diversity!
How can you say that this doesn't have to be political all the while you try to force modern day politics of inclusivity and representation into a fantasy game? You do realize that only one side of the argument has to consider this political for it to be politcal, right? Also, the aforementioned Wild Elves are an option that could satidfy this demand. That being said I fully disagree with you, even if elves look human, they are NOT human.
