Hello. I was comparing different fantasy settings, mainly the Warcraft world and the Warhammer world. One thing that makes the Warcraft world stand out compared to other fantasy settings is how the "monstrous" races are civilized. In WoW, these races show no signs of lower intelligence (having less technically advanced architecture is not a sign), and they have other quite diverse traits like honor, nobility, and ingenuity. They do show a more savage side sometimes, though.

In Warhammer it is quite different, with Ogres being an exception. I quite like the Ogres in Warhammer, being opportunistic and open to deal with all races.

What do you prefer, and why? And do you know of any other settings with more or less intelligent and civilized monstrous races?
