Instead, the tribe interbred with thylacines, more popularly known as Tasmanian tigers.

They interbred with thylacines. Marsupials. Literally the most distant mammal relations they could possibly find without laying eggs.

DEATH: When a character reaches 0 Hit Points, it's either dead or knocked out. It's up to the GM to choose so

I'm not actually sure if you can give Hobbits axes without deliberately spending points in it (which is super expensive). They can sneak though, they can sneak SO HARD. The game I played in had a Hobbit who would regularly roll 25+ sneak checks, in a game where a 20 is supposed to be a really loving hard task.

D&D at high levels has turned into spell lists the size of phonebooks, basic enemies with stat-blocks that run over multiple sheets of paper, or so many different effects, zones, auras, reactions, interrupts and god knows what else active at once that you need a flow-chart to work your way through a turn.

It works, sort of, but it's not what I'd call enjoyable.

Vibro-blades make a sort of sense. Ultrasonic blades certainly exist (though mainly in the textiles & food industries from what I know), the vibration stops the material sticking to the blade, so it cuts exceptionally cleanly.

How that would help it cut through super-armour, I do not know.

That almost works. If you have 60 points per term to spend on poo poo, but need to have a 70+ in the exam at the end, then there's a balance you'd need to achieve.

So if I do a study session for each of my courses every week I have 60+12d10 exam points, a range from 72-180, averaging 126, 12 points to do "other" things with. If I skip study two weeks out of a term, I could have 50+10d10 exam points, 60-150 (105), with 22 dossing about points. Skip four weeks, 40+8d10 48-120 (84), 32 doss points. There's potential for a power now vs. power later vs. character "death by being kicked out of the school" decision, which isn't necessarily bad. Could do with some of the edges filing off though, and some checks to make sure that the outside activities don't overwhelm the required stuff.

I would say you are writing a review, not an exhaustive line-by-line dissection of the book. Don't feel that you have to cover every single idiotic point the writer decided to shove in.

I made the worlds greatest baker in a version of MERP. He was a swarthy outsider of the wild, who was pretty rubbish at all of that but could do magnificent things with pastry. We never did work out if we were building characters properly, because holy gently caress there were a lot of steps.

The only reason to give anything stats is if you intend to be rolling dice for it. That either means the players are trying to kill it, or it's fighting along side them and they'll wind up attacking it anyway because it's a GMPC and it deserves it.
