These are for size comparisons, mostly.
Rock Trolls are usually 8 to 10 feet tall [ 240 - 300 cm ]
Watchers are Semi Corporeal, almost invisible, and usually about 9 feet tall [ 275 cm ] (they shrink slightly while they 'materialize', and can only remain fully corporeal for less than a minute.)
The Ursan is clowning around, wearing a Bear Head Mask, and oversized gloves. (that is a beer stein in his right hand. (Ursans are like 7-9 feet tall, [210- 275 Centimetres])
Highe Elves are usually 6 - 7.5 feet tall [180-230 cm]
Drax [Lizard-Men] are anything from 4 to 9 feet tall [ 120 - 280 cm ]
Hawks are about as tall as Ursans ( 7 to 9 feet / 200 - 280 cm )
Khatzen [ Feline-Humanoids ] are usually about 5 to 7.5 feet tall [ 150 - 230 cm ]
Humans, Half Elves, Forest Elves, Mer, Dark Elves, Faaxen, and Dhalggers are usually about 4.5 to 6.5 feet tall [135 - 195 cm ]
Ravenna, Dryads, and Satyrs are generally 4 to 5.5 feet tall [120 - 165 cm]
Ottarians and Faer Elves are usually 3 to 5 feet tall and slender. [ 90 - 150 cm ]
Ymmps, and Delvahrians are usually 3 to 4.5 feet tall and 'solid'. [ 90 - 135 cm ]
Ghardra are usually 2.5 to 4.5 feet tall and 'average' in build. [ 75 - 135 cm ]
Gremlins are usually 2.5 to 4 feet tall and 'wirey.' [ 75 - 120 cm ]
Doves are usually 3 to 4.5 feet tall and 'fragile'. [ 90 - 135 cm ]
Sprites are usually between 6 inches and 2.5 feet tall. [ 15 - 75 cm ]
Tiger Spiders are between 2 and 4 [ 60 - 120 cm ] feet tall but can be 6-8 feet in diameter [ 180 -240 cm ].
Sectoids are usually about 5 to 6 feet tall [ 150 - 180 cm ], but some 'slither' around at about a foot tall [ 30 cm ] and some are as tall as 7 to 8 feet [ 200 - 240 cm ].
Metamorphs either conform to the normal heights and girths of the races they masquerade as, or they are in big trouble. Those high level metamorphs who can adopt 'Mythical' forms can generally take care of themselves whether they're trying to pass for Angels, Unicorns, Giants, or Dragons.
Faer Elves are not Metamorphs (for role playing purposes, I mean). They can shift between their Elven form and that of a domestic cat. They also have a halfway form known as a Faer Cat, which is generally about 5 feet tall [ 150 cm ] and looks like Felix the Cat with psychedelic colour schemes. [ Khatzen are not amused ]
Dhalggers are not Metamorphs (for role playing purposes). Their 'normal' form is more or less Elvish (or 'humanoid' ) with a very dog like head, but they usually resemble Half Elves (especially when rumours of Werewolves are flying around). They can also 'disguise' themselves as most domesticated species of dogs.
Metamorphs who begin life as a Dhalgger or Faer Elf do not progress any faster than any other Metamorph. [ Metamorphs 'don't know they're metamorphs' until a Metamorph Elder 'awakens' their abilities. Metamorph Elders are almost always very politically involved in trying to maintain 'balance' and have been accused of being very heavy handed when it comes to 'eliminating' unconscious metaphorphs who might align themselves with a rival camp. ]
