You nailed the Gnomes in the description!
I'm going back and forth with the Aodin turning into liqiud. It's more on the "how would it exactly work?" we need to figure it out for sure. Maybe flux magic? Especially good with water?
hmmm I see our satyrs being the "go getters." They would be the ones to lead the way type of deal. Tough and rowdy with a great love and respect for life (a bit hippish). Satyrs don't like being suppressed (like they were by the Haudi) and since than they took the role of the freedom fighter niche perhaps?
