And conversely, anthropomorphic bunnies would fit hopelessly badly into most fantasy campaigns. I mean, try it with literary sources. Conan visits the valley of the anthropomorphic bunnies! The Fellowship of the Ring pass through a kingdom peopled by bunnies! Harry Potter spends a year as an exchange student at l'Académie St.-Lapin! . . . and in each case the clash of tone destroys any chance of taking the campaign seriously.

Hobbits are obviously rabbits arent they?

I think were talking about archetypal scenario books for the main genres. You could play vampire bunnies, I guess, but youre putting yourself out on a fairly strange limb if you do. I would expect that bunny fans arent going to want scenarios. I shouldnt imagine they are anyones target audience either.
