Hey, its been a while since I've been here. I've been trying to come up with a new world, with different races etc. The problem I'm facing right now is avoiding going with the typical dwarves/elves/trolls steriotype fantasy. The problem I'm facing is to not make it too alien/strange that people get put off by it. My idea is to take say elves and change them to make them very different from your typical elves. My question is, do you think its better to stick with your typical slightly overused 'dwarf/orc/elf' type of fantasy setting, or be creative and use your imagination. Do you enjoy reading a typical fantasy story, or one thats completely different and new?
