I personally would keep them as "monsters" - it's hard enough to get people
to actually role-play reptilemen or gargoyles as anything other than 'humans
in rubber suits' - they're chosen for their stats and combat ability, only.

However, speaking of double-experience races, I don't charge double for most
of the listed "double XP" races - sure, they get extra points to start, and
sometimes natural armor, but the penalties that apply (both rules-based and
role-playing based) pretty much put them at an even keel with humans.

I'm working on the player-character races now, and once they're done, I'll
post them for comments.
