Ywerion Posted October 9, 2012 Share Posted October 9, 2012 I was never fan of animal-like races (nevertheless I secretly wished to have some sort of centaurish party member). I am sorry but yet again I must mention Arcanum because I really loved the way racial portraits was handled here, be it elves, dwarves half-ogres and others they all had this huma look mixed with few characteristical features and thus all the races looked pretty believable (after all they were supposed to evolve from two or three origins) and not typically flat out outlandish to look as much distinctive as posible. To the playable races, well I can't recall if I ever had a choice to play as a race who was actually short lived or at least be of shorter lifespawn then humans, that's one thing, as I mentioned I am not a huge fan of animal races (In one game I played shortly in the past there was even elephant-like race) but carefully created race with humanoid body structure and few fantasy touches would be great, like for instance race of hybridous humanoids with kind of harlequenism like scaled skin, who have very painful maturity, but in the end have natural hard scales of skin and don't grow any form of body hair, and dunno are resented and looked down upon by humans because of their unpleasant look? Just a quick idea, but you get the picture I don't require some to-eyes-bashing outlandish fantastical race, just basic human form we all know with some quirks on.

Pain, when torn into this wakefulness, this reminder of the chaos from which they had escaped. Pain of having to live! There will be no more pain. There will be... no more chaos."
