What, you mean like the same races?
I realize this is an inside joke now, but it's really not that bad when you think about it. Only 2 races are really being copied if you analyze it the way I'm about to describe.
Hume/Humans are us, no big deal.
Elvaan/Elves are in D&D, the North Pole, Tokien's LotR/Hobbit Saga, Legend of Zelda and fantasy everywhere.
Taru/Hobbits are all over the fantasy world. D&D, LOtR/Hobbit again, and elsewhere in the fantasy universe.
The only 2 races that feel copied to me are the Galka and Mithra races. Mithra look like they were ripped straight from a Hentai video sexual theme and all. I haven't figured out where Galka's inhabit the universe. So we have Humans, Elves, Hobbits, Hentai **** characters, and something that resembles Shrek the Ogre.
