Well, I'm no expert, but the races in SR are subtly different from those in
ED. Obviously, there are cultural differences, and environmental; that could
count for a lot.
But in general, trolls and orks are like feral versions of those in ED (not
all, not always, but generally and to some extent)
The environments and origens for the obsidemen and Tskrang are even more
polluted than most others- Not much clean water or undeveloped land left.
Maybe in some areas, after the completion of certain projects, a few of these
relatively rare types might surface.
Do you really want that? Obsidiman may be slow, but they are staunch
protectors of the land and nearly imortal, each and every one, not like just a
few elves! Ts'krang in SR seems, well, silly. Might make an intersting
Creature, though- devolved, feral Ts'krang living in your typical large river
full of pollutants.
