Although I'd like to keep the dragons basically evil in their very nature
(that is, not "converted" but inherantly evil), I like the idea of having
the various races be unredeemedly twisted forms of humanity (or other native
races?).  Of course, that would eliminate some of the humor and depth given
by the descriptions of their origins as currently developed.  However, a
little mystery as to the source of these Dark Creatures (those other races
could have been kidnapped from other planets, after all, and the folks on
EdenAgain never know from whence they came).
