I didn't really see anything in the second tier that I'd ask for.
I'm not a fan of reusing the typical fantasy races, but they can be done well. Heck anything can be done well. Beast races, however, have never really sat well with me. Somehow the usual, 'slap together a Human and whatever animal is handy' approach comes off as lazy every time, no matter how well fleshed out they are from a story perspective.
Well mythology is full of animal headed people though. And since LotR RPG settings have been deriving from mythology.
True. It doesn't really make some random author slapping a Human and a Goat together come off as any less lazy to me. If anything it would make it seem even more lazy.
