This should get your juices going: One of the races you listed is being seriously seriously considered for addition to TorilMud! And no I ain't tellin' which it is. 8)

That's my guess, too... a PC which can play with both sides and safely enter good and evil hometowns.

Consider this:

These are the only ones that are additional to what we already have on Toril:

Good:
Centaur
Moon Elf (essentially a Grey Elf, but listed because of different name)
Voadkyn
Wild Elf

Neutral:
Half-Orc

Evil:
Derro
Goblin
Kuo-Tuan

That's not a huge amount to add. Some I'd like to see more than others, but once again as I posted in my post on kits the opportunites for personal play-style and role-play choices make adding them beneficial.

I'm thinking half-orc.

Another neutral race wouldn't really upset the balance of things, plus they could be both anti-pals and worg riders!

Moon elves are grey elves. Except Grey elf is actually a derogatory term, the actual race is moon elves.

Hrmm....I really miss my Centaur on Homeland...I was distraught yesterday because I just wanted to log on Orlath and go kick some stuff. So whats the word on the carry-over race that was mentioned here before? I mean I know this mud is all about balance, so why not have a race to somehow balance out the evilrace with the goodrace as far as race selection goes? I know there are many discussions to be made from the following comparisons I made between the races from homeland compared to the races already present here...this is what I came up with tho as a rough draft comparison.

Human----Orc
Because of basic size and racial traits involved in being the race. yes Orcs are slightly more along the intelligence of a barbarian but I couldn't compare orc to barby cause of the sheer size issue.

Gnome----Goblin
Hrmm..not sure..cause they both start with G? feel free to discuss.

Barbarian----Troll
God i miss the days when Gulraex had the ability to regen hitpoints when he was a berzerker.

Ogre----Voadkyn
Big boys.

Grey Elf----Drow Elf
Nuff said.

Half Elf----Half Orc
Yay for halfbreeds! I wonder if a Half-Orc Dire raider would be better than an Orc...

Mountain Dwarf----Duergar Dwarf
Nuff Said

Yuan-Ti----Centaur
Well now I know there is the issue of the size of a centaur versus the size of a Yaun-ti...but yaun-ti can be mages...and are smarter..I based this one especially on the equipment restrictions applied to the race.

Halfling----Derro
Shorties fighting shorties

Illithid----Well they are so cool you can't compare them to anyone.


I would love to see more race selection, but I would also love to see more people on to watch the different races interacting in fullness on a daily basis. Sooooo, whats the deal yo? Any of the new races I listed being worked on at all? Will we ever see this kind of racial balance?

Yes.

Longer answer, there is a HL race which should make an appearance. As I said in the kits thread though, there are alot of other things that need to go in first before we get in a new race and make it truly unique.
