So James, we were talking about Sivanah and her different veils. You seemed pretty sure when you mentioned [REDACTED] as one of the races, but I think you meant aranea instead. I was thinking a little and it seems that the majority of the races represented by her veils have undergone transformations. Humans by the aboleths, elves can change to match environment, gnomes from leaving the First World, and the aranea can transform themselves. Halflngs seem like they are adept at social transformations, but that may be a stretch. And the [REDACTED] had a major transformation in their past as well.
Are the races represented by her veils due to the changes they have had?
I probably did. Turns out I can't remember every single word of our books on the last day of a four day convention when I'm coming down with the sick.
And that's an interesting observation, but the presence of halflings kinda throws a wrench into the theory. AKA: nope; the transformations don't have any bearing.
