Interesting proposal with the Valoshans. We will have to create some interesting ways to enforce this stuff, or we make the group selective to a few people.

Race Idea = Nether Humans. Humans exposed to the Nether for a long time and experienced some unintended side affects. If you want me to be extremely creative with a race idea, just say.

Well, that sounds good, we just need Kthak's race and another mutant now. I kind of want to talk more with Saper about the mutants, but this is still a good suggestion. Smile

Hey Schwinny, my race is actually a mutant race. They resemble humans with green skin and vines and thorns coming out of them. I think Saper is writing that they were exposed to extensive radiation and their DNA was altered causing their mutation.

They sort of look like this:

I'm starting to think Humans are a little bit under powered... Can anyone think of some more advantages to give them or possibly disadvantages to other races in order to balance them a little more?

I said underpowered (meaning they aren't as strong as other races) not underpopulated. I'm guessing that's what you thought I said?
And yes, I guess I'd hope humans would be more common than the other races, but people won't want to be human if the other races are a lot better.

Maybe have it that only a few select that are known to be good rpers and not trolls that want a higher class to be able to be one of those races if their character were to die or if they wish they can multitask two chars(it aint impossible its just a bitch to do) but they will have to write an app for that char as well.
