at the new release you will be able to make merfolks, and demons, and other creatures (Supernatural pack), and the best it will be mix and matchable with the other packs
half elves will not be, just a human with pointy ears 😛 i know its not same, but this is the closest, at the moment

the new system will be a little different. it will be 3 base character (maybe will grow, but at the moment 3), and for these three character will have tematical packs, which are totally mix and matchable.
in the new version also solved some “old” problems, like similarity of faces, shadows, and much more!

the nymph will be are in “elf” pack (should rename it because of dryads, and other fae folks)

halflings and gnomes is later plan.

the weird creepy and beautyful will be the drow pack, but i get your point, modern 🙂 yes, good idea! (Actually i begun the scifi pack, great for these)
