Any thoughts on possible races for the next expansion?

For races, I have the following suggestions:

Albion - realm has just got their short-arses in Inconnu, next thing they need is a big race of the size of trolls/firbies...so how about granite giant? Or an ogre?

Midgard - Enough short-arses here now...needs a norse size character...how about orc or svartalf?

Hibernia - How about a leprechaun? :)

i think svartalf would be a cool addition to the midgard realm. they need to re-do the concept tho. the svartalfar weren't some aliens with green glowing eyes. in norse mythology they were elves with dark skin since they lived underground, not ugly like the npc svartalf we have now.

oh and ogre could be cool for albion so they get their 'big' race :)

Hmm Leprechaun = Lurikeen. It is just that one is the celtic way of spelling it and the other the Saxon way if I remember correctly.

Empyrean could be fun for Hibernia, transparency would kick arse :)

Albion are gonna get either a half man, half giant race called John or some half man, half dragon creature that has really tough skin and can insta cast a fire spell fire. It will also have a tail that you can attach weapons to. I think it will be like that dude from spiderman, no not green goblin, that other guy who is a scientist but works for that fat guy with no hair.

Midgard will get a vampire race that hangs out in dungeons and insta regens full health after killing an enemy. It won't be a stealther but it will move very fast and be really cool and everyone will shout Nerf but the vamps won't give a shit because they won't belong in the game but will totally kick ass so won't care. Plus they'll look really cool and everyone will start playing one because they own.

Hibernia will get a cloth wearing healer, half badger, half water cress creature. It will glow bright green so enemy tanks know what to kill first and it will also give out 3 times more RP's than any other player on the battlefield just to stick the boot in.

It will be the same size as a Firbolg and have a really long neck.

Thats what I think anyway...

How about Were-creatures.
Instead of using a pet for combat a race that transforms itself into some snarling bag of violence.
Each race could have its own type with different pros and cons.
In creature form they could use howls or roars as buffs or debuffs (think chants)

There could easily be 3 different were-creatures, 1 for each realm. Were-wolves, were-bears, were-hamsters <grins>-for the hibs

Minatours or Centours would be cool.

Agreed that albion has its short arsed race now, and we didn't want them bloody little ugly blue things in the first place.

1) Valkyns are the best new race :p
2) Middie tanks are weaker on paper but they kick the shit out of other tanks in-game.

On topic:

Albion: Orcs
Hibernia: Gnomes/Pixies? Half-elves
Midgard: Werewolves or Svartalfs

I'm prolly just being argumentative now, but the svartalfes in norse mythology were the EVIL kind of elves, but then again, so where the trolls & dwarves also...

you are absolutely correct. the svartalfar were very evil indeed. my point however had nothing to do with alignment, it was regarding their looks :)

Ohh my GOD!!!

People want Drizt clones for Mids?

I heard my part of bad ideas but this actualy beats them all! Only a few good (serious) ideas on this forum so far and most of it is from power happy noobs.

Fagane

ps : Were-Hamsters souns actualy very cool if they are even more tiny then a Lurkeen and can become a bzerker with 2 times the Mids HP.........

If Valkyns are the best new race I sencerly appologize , and feel sorry for the other two realms.. Because Valkyns are a the crappiest of all the races midgard has..and they look like un-groomed drunk chimps with a banana up there beeepppp

First of all people, albion is from the Arthurian Mythology so pls no Ogres or stuff like that, all races was plain Humans until those damn weird soundmaking Inconnu's came to the fair realm of albion!
so even tho those white-ish ugly animals entered the realm pls keep ogres and other ugly green-ish monsters out of the realm...

but orcs in Midgard seems like a cool idea, if not wws...

Ehm Svartalfs in norse mythology? I can't remember to have read any norse mythology that had svartalfs, not that I've read a whole lot, but still can't remember anywhere they'd be mentioned... Do they go under a different name? Nor do I remember reading anything about evil dwarves (a bit more shaky on that one...) Is there a slight mixing of Norse mythology and folk lore here?

And werewolves? Midgard already got the Were-lemmings as a class, so why make a race similar to it, can kinda see the were-wolf-lemming-character...

Svartalfs and Isalfs both existed in Norse mythology. Most Dwaves mentioned in Norse mythology are pretty evil, some aren't... and werewolves just look cool :p
