I got an email back from the nice folks at Westarch University Press indicating that they have permission from Monte to use the AE races. That's great! Mr. Cook seemed to designate a lot of cool stuff as Product Identity, so I assumed he was going to be a stingy guy with them. Apparently I'm a big jerk for assuming that Monte is stingy and WUP are a bunch of clueless n00bs. My apologies to both of them.
