Realistic Race Names Edit

In Dungeons and Dragons, there are various races that are human, but they are not called human. Such races include all of the tolkienian races other than orcs (elves, dwarves, gnomes, and halflings), and three psionic races (elans, maenids, and xephs). Therefore, those races, and any other such races, shall be named as subraces of human rather than given an entirely separate race designation. For example, the official name for an elf would be "Human, Elf" or "Human, Elven". 'Ordinary' humans shall be given their own separate subrace designation, such as "Human, Mainline". Even smaller divisions, particularly the subraces of elf, dwarf, gnome, and halfling, can either be named as an infrarace, as in "Human, Elf, High", or, if they are too different, are given their own subrace designation, as in "Human, Drow".
