    Hey all, here's my suggestion for the first expansion race. Haven't seen anything like it an mmo before, I think it would be great and help put Pantheon on the map.

    Let me know what you think!

    Snaaaaaaaake people (haven't thought of a name, so "snake people" for now)

    Asthetics
    Scale covered humanoids with subtly snake influenced faces (many variations available).
    Snake body from below the belt down. Snake body longer than you'd expect, possibly 6 or 7 feet from the belt to the end of the tail.

    Armor restrictions
    - Shoes and pants are unequippable
    - Snake people have builds that are slight and flexible, making them unable to wear plate armor.

    Animations
    While "standing" still, snake people coil their lower bodies. In combat, the tip of the tail wiggles/rattles.
    Snake people do not stand perfectly upright while moving, leaning heavily towards the intended direction.
    When a "kick ability" is used the animation for the snake people is a spinning tail whip.


    Racials
    1. Cold blood - Can equip a second chest and shoulders item. Set bonuses (please no) of second items do not apply. Assuming chest stat value = legs stat value and shoulder stat value = feet stat value.
    2. King Serpent - 1% resistant to poison damage, 1% increased poison damage.
    3. Coil - increase movement speed by 20% for 1 second after standing still for 5 seconds. Works in and out of combat.
    4. Gaze - Snake people mezzes last 2% longer.

    Classes Available
    Shaman, Druid, Rogue, Dire Lord, Enchanter, Wizard, Summoner, Monk

    What do ya'll think?
