Re: Demihumans!

Again, I wouldn't dream of having LotR style elves or halflings. Nobody would speak of an "elf race" or a "halfling race." Statistical halflings could represent tcho-tcho, Homo floresiensis, orang-pendaks, Madchen's "little people," etc. Elf stats could represent remnant Lemurians, African wakyambi, reclusive jann from Arab mythology, and so forth.

If you're talking about reskins then yeah I do it all the time because we DMs have better things to do with our time than reinventing the wheel. Incidentally, the Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess describes the lost continent of the Lemurian Remnant which is also a good place for tcho-tchos to pop up.
