Agreed. The races in particular are not balanced, acting more like a difficulty level. You definetly want to play Noldor a the very least. Houses are less important so randomizing those works just...

Well, the Dwarfes of Tolkien seems prett pragmatic compared with the axes-or-bust stereotyoe that spawned from Gimli. Maybe change the Archery penalty to a bow.. un-proficiency to keep in line with...
