I just ranted this on an OD&D blog page, but I figured I'd put it here because it was a pretty decent rant.

The question was "what animal do you associate with dwarves?" My initial reaction was "dragon" but a lot of other people picked "badger."

Which led me to:

Although there was that 3E or 3.5E supplement (was it Manual of the Planes?) that had the race produced by the coupling of, uh, dwarves and celestial badgers.

No, I'm not making this up. I'm going to go look right now.

All right, here it is. It's the Planar Handbook:

"Some instead mingle with the beasts they will one day become, creating new races that are perpetually half-animal, half-humanoid. Prominent among these are the wildren, beings descended from the union of partially transformed dwarf petitioners and celestial badgers."

Yeah, you heard it from Wizards of the Coast first: if you're a really good dwarf, then after you die, you get to fuck a badger.

And they say Carcosa is transgressive. Pfah!
