I've been considering the four playable races issue in SR:MT for a little bit now, and the current conclusion is either scrapping the four race idea or allowing the public to select from a pool of candidates, which I'll bring out once I've made my mind on this.
The first one saves time with implementation and keeps complexity down, while the second option adds more variety to the game and experience, since race has an influence on character's perceptions of the Player at times, as well as class.
One of the primary problems with some of the races possible for the remaining two slots is likability. Are players going to be happy with playing Orcs, or a race of lizardfolk? Or would they want something more traditional like Dwarves?
Ultimately this is an issue I'll have to solve sometime before things get too indepth, so I'm hoping for some suggestions. I've intended the lore of the AoD world to be open for the community to expand upon, so this would be a great way to help get involvement with people.
If you have a race idea, feel free to let me know in comments or in email, or tweet me about it! I'd love to talk about ideas for the game!
I play video games, write, make art, create music, design video games, and have a deep love of fantasy.
