Ofcourse there has to be racial restrictions.  A slow, dumb troll with
close to no dexterity couldn't possibly swiftly kick anyone without 
announcing the kick 10 seconds in advance, just like a puny hobbit would
make an awfull fighter.  Get real, there has to be racial restrictions.
Ok, let any race be whatever they want, but you have to restrict them.
Why have races at all if you dont?

But also a good point, I'm glad not all muds follow the same "rules".
