RACE_DROW in constants.c has their size listed as 4,
which is the same size listed for races like Half-Ogre. I
would think that Drow should be listed closer to other elf
races, which are size 2. Also Avariel is listed as size 3,
and it feels like they should be listed as size 2.

The current height and weight ranges for the starting
races are listed below, there are several which have
inappropriate ranges, such trolls and a dark dwarves
being shown as 4'11" through 6'6" and 100 to 180 lbs of
weight.

With the pantheon permission, I'd like to go through and
adjust the height and weights for the races. I know it
doesn't mean that much right now, but if we make it
accurate now, we can lay a foundation to building
a "character" rather than a collection of statistics.

    Ok I'm uploading a replacement set of height and weights.
    Feel free to use it. It compiles, and it doesn't crash the mud,
    but I have not created one of every race and verified the
    height and weight fall between the variances. It was a
    quickie that I rattled off, and I will not be able to test it
    throughout every race permutation in the coming days.

    A text file with properly formatted replacement code for height weight generation in db.c
