What gives you the notion that I didn't? I did a bit of looking around

As I said, it's inconclusive. There were a lot of UGE babies born starting
mid-to-late 2011, after the first wave of VITAS hit, but it doesn't say
*anywhere* that I can find that there weren't also transformations. And the
numbers just don't add up without them.

Now show me some game canon to support *that*. There isn't any.

What the hell do you think I'm trying to do here, for crying out loud?
Jesus, how stupid do you really think I am?

I'm quite open to the possibility. I just happen to want *proof*, which you
have to this point not provided. You've provided a hypothesis with perhaps
two lines of text to back it up.
I never said I had even that much, for the record, which is why I'm on this
particular trail right now. My gut and common sense tell me that there had
to be a wave of such transformations.

Well, until someone can offer solid proof that I'm wrong, I'm continuing to
run my world as if there were a wave of elf/dwarf transformations since
that's the only way FASA's numbers can make any damn sense.
