This may have already been mentioned, but I have not tackled this whole thread yet. Would it be possible/balanced to have the various adventures actually have the race and civilization promotions that fit where they are from? If not, could they at least have the appropriate graphics? It is hard to imagine a male human as a Svartalfar or goblin. So, for example, Sidhelle would look like a Ljosalfar unit regardless of which unit she was upgraded to. But, she may or may not get dexterous and elven. I frequently do this anyway, especially with archmages (I think the Svartalfar archmage fits much nicer than the normal Grigori one, as Grigori adepts and mages are female, while archmages are not).
