Macrae posted a topic in Pillars of Eternity: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS)Hi all, I just realized orcs, goblins and halflings weren't going to be part of this game. While I don't necessarily criticize this design decision, I was wondering what would you lose by adding them at least at character creation? They are at this point pretty much as "classic" as dwarves and elves in fantasy settings so why do you guys think they did not include them? Also, anyone knows if these races are out of this game or out of this universe entirely?
Hello, I am a new user I do not know how to create the poll of this topic if someone would help me I would be grateful. ps. I'm sorry for my English but I use google translator. What do you think about adding or adopting a new race. I mean, of course, Orc race. Do you like the idea or not, if so, please share your thoughts about that race, orgins, culture or physical, if you think that orc addition to the game is a bad idea to also encourage you to discuss. Personally, I do not like how it has so far presented orcs especially in the D & D. Were presented as cannon fodder, in most cases, extremely stupid and weak, even in combat also does not play hardly any role. Already much more I liked how they presented in Warcraft 3 There were Respected military strength equal to that of men, or sometimes even surpasses them. Presented as cursed by demons, changed and enslaved by them, however, after years of a large group of them broke the shackles. Honor the warriors, who want to live in peace but not afraid to grab an ax and show their strength. I think orcs are as much a part of the fantasy world as elves or dwarves. Not a bad idea in my opinion would be if the design world eternity present them as two races or even factions. Enslaved a race of slaves and the other dark forces as a rebellious tribe hating their former oppressors but not being too warm relations with the "civilized" humans, elves, etc. I personally would prefer a much more even playing an orc than divine or superhuman race. In Neverwinter Night Although there was a half-orc race, but I think it was terribly compromised. I do not know why it always shows them as idiots, right are quite aggressive, wild, rude, unfriendly and not liking strangers. But, for example, Thrall from Warcraft 3 was intelgętny and even breaking stereotypes and did not lose anything from being an orc. Im waiting for your opinion. See you
