Races - Think out of the box

    MMOs have used and overused too many "typical" races.

    Let our imagination go wild and start thinking about stuff that could be fun to play, shall we ?

    Here's some ideas :

     

    -Ethereal : visually ghost-ish (transparent)

    -Elemental : air, earth, water, fire (eventually metal, blood, lightning, wood,...)

    -Imp (not Tyrion), tiny devil

    -Insect type humanoid

    -Beholder (flying eye), would be caster only

    -Blob/ooze, ewww

     

    Let me see your funny ideas :)

    Well, we've already got your first two examples in the game with Gnomes and Archai.

     

    EDIT:  I'd like to see a tiny race like EverQuest brownies.  That would be sweet.

    Personally, I think the Skar could be considered an insect-like humanoid too.

    But I'd always like to see a bird-man race.

    I'd like to see those Bird men expanded out to general humanoid animals. Canine, feline, ursine, bovine, equestrian, avian, reptilian.... Gives a lot of options for character creation and would grab them all at once. One group is going to want birds, some cats, etc... just go all in with it.

    A fairy or brownie race might be cool too, but i'd like to see them a bit bigger than traditional brownies and fairies... i mean.. how much of a warrior can a 16 inch tall brownie be?

    One thing you need to keep in mind is that we need to think about how the race fits into cass lore.

    How is an ooze/blob going to be anything other than a blob? What class could they possibly be? How would a mindless "thing" become intelligent?

    Half-orcs... 

    Take one from GW2 and make a race of genderless plant people. I don't know why but I always liked that concept.

    Dragonkin, since much of the lore revolves around dragons..... might be kinda cool. Not half dragon as in half man half lizard, but a humanoid race that came from a sect of dragons that were turned into humans but retain some of their dragon abilities.... something along those lines.

    I am looking forward to minotaurs or something along those lines.  I also like the idea of Snakemen but something different/unique about them that not many focus on. I also would like to see a spiderlike race.  Not a drider from Forgotten realms but somekind of arachnid race maybe scorprion...

    I would totally play a Centaur if it was a playable race.
