wobbly is on a distinguished road
Is a name for Smeagol's people ever given? Seems a reasonable fit for kobold. Someone mentioned the wizards all being Maia? Elrond, Galadriel & the wood elfs in the hobbit all use magic. The dwarfs use magic doors and writing, usually crafts.

I'd see no problem with giving elfs +1 wis/int where they'd have exactly the same issues, just better suited to the more solid priest/paladin. If druids (& rangers?) are going to be wis casters elfs need both if you want mage/druid/ranger/rogue to fit.

I'd certainly be happy to see Medusa & co go. More generic monsters don't bother me as much. A lot depends on how stripped down a monster list you want. Longer? Same? Shorter? What's the plan.
