I like races because they're so basic. Snazzing them up is not the way to go. If you want interesting things, go worship gods.
Just some examples. Or we could only give Dwarf an alternative bonus. Or don't choose them if you don't like it. Simple really.

Actually, I disagree.
At their core, damage reduction and lifesteal are the same mechanic. There are subtle differences, but in the end they're the equivalent of giving monsters weakening.
I'd rather see the Dwarf get Health back and give Vampire lifesteal (120 for 1 lifesteal is probably fair).
And at their core Attack and Base Damage are also the same mechanic. In the end they're the equivalent of making monsters die faster. Also Burning and Corrosion, except one burns out and one does not. Just like Damage Reduction and Life Steal - one gives you extra HP, one doesn't.
Speaking of which, does Life Steal work against Undead and Lifeless monsters?
I would definitely *choose* Damage Reduction sometimes if that option is available. And I love more options. That's all I'm saying.
