    Probably Dark Myr or Halfling for me and the race I dont pick will probably be a Bard alt when that class gets released.

    I'm probably leaning towards Human before knowning about any specific Racials that would convince me otherwise. Humans are always so well rounded. It's a tough choice to make before we know much more about the other races.

    If there is a specific racial that absolutely caters to Rogue, that could play a big part in choice. My gripe with Humans in EQ was always the poor night vision, I'm not sure if they're planning anything similar here. I am currently playing a Wood Elf Rogue on P99 and having Forage is pretty nice, the ony thing I need to go back to town for is to sell loot and buy water, bandages and knives.

    Racial Choices off the cuff:
    Medium: Human > Elf or Dark Myr > Skar
    Small: Dwarf or Halfling > Gnome

    Roleplay Choice:


    Gnomes are kind of a wild card because their race seems so focused on Magic.

    I feel the same about Gnomes! I can't relate them to Roguery.  

    I'll probably roll a human and play the charismatic, not-too-bad guy.

    My first choice atm is Dark Myr. They are in my perspective are like drows and I just love drows.

    2nd : Elf - kinda depending on how the racials etc will have effect by release time.

    Currently Skar.
    Unless I do not like skar ingame. Depends on the moving and optical aspect of them.

    Elves have always appealed to me, so currently I am thinking Ember Elf Rogue.  Ranger is also on the short-list for me, and I would stick with Ember Elf with that as well.

    Halfling! Definitely.

    ... or dark myr because I like their lore and abilities.

    ... or gnome because I like to play a race not technically optimized for a class.

    ... or skar because they would look awesome.

    It seems like Ogre might make the best rogue through the use of the progeny system.  Joppa seemed to like the idea of having access to new race/class combos by way of progeny in the latest stream
