Old Races vs New Races

Why doesnt Mehul replace some of the old races? Some of the races Ive seen on the forums are good enough to be on Utopia. I can understand having the humanoid races like Elves,Humans,Dwarves and orcs.The Undead and Avians are good races to play but they are just other races with something else added on, for example Avians are humans with wings and the undead are just dead humans. If Avians can be part of the game why cant Centaurs or Fauns or something be?

What the game needs is new, more complex races to make the game more exciting. Just a made up race which is not taken from a book or movie. I can think of one of the top of my head like ... Phyronans

Phyronans are forest dwelling creatures which are little known thoughout Utopia. They are known to deal with Orcs but even the orcs cannot tell you the nature of these cretures. They have thrived because of they're resourcefulness and ability to adapt to thier surroundings. Because of this they are very good explorers and are renowned for thier agricultural skills. They're abilities also allow them to make good armor and weapons. Although they are raised around the mystical forests they are not especially magical and pride themselves in there resource acquiring skills. This makes them excellent thieves. Due to the amount of resources they aquire they tend to make thier armer better and therefore more expensive.

Avians are just humans with wings? How do you know what avians look like? I've always pictured them almost nothing like humans, and entirely bird...

who said undead were dead humans? Maybe they're dead dwarves or faeries? Maybe their the ressurected remains of an extinct race?

Lol you make it sound like playing human, avian, and undead are all the same thing.

. They're VERY different.

Plus, we have enough, interesting races now. And your race sounds overpowered. Better income, better food production, less combat losses (better armor), more military strength (better weapons), and better thievery, with no disadvantages?

I imagine Avians as big vicious birds with sharp claws and mouth (what's that word in English again?)

I always thought of them as either Griffins, or maybe just birds with swords or something...Whatever.

I think the races are just fine as of now, thank you.
It might easily upset the balance to add another...

For anyone that loves fantasy related stuff, 7 of the 8 races are musts (Avians are the only ones I've never really heard about before) but Dwarves, Halflings, Elves, Undead, Orcs, Humans, and Faeries are necessary for a fantasy game, it just ain't the same if you leave one out.... but I was hoping we could add a couple more well known races too. The main 2 that come too my mind are Dark Elves, I suggested them a A/M race recently and Trolls, or a combination of Trolls, Ogres, and Goblins... can't think of a name fro them, Warcraft used Orcs, but we already got 'em.....

Yeah, this is only my 3rd age and I'm already tired of the races. Why not just throw some other ones into the mix, or just completely change some of the advantages/disadvantages.

wouldnt it be cool if for one age in gen, mehul raised the adv/dis for the races and personalities, make wach thing be a bit bigger, like dwarves consume 125 food, and faeries get +25 magic effectiveness, or something


wouldnt that be fun, that would complelty make undead, halfling and faery be awesome to play as

IF

but I don't think mehul will add new races.. and I think he is right about that..

also, major changes could screw up the game...

like when the avians got 5/0 0/5 specs...

I believe he was referring to a humanoid no just humans!

I like the current races and removing one could cause a balance problem. Maybe introducing a A/M and a T/A race

tongue

Technically, all the races are like humans.

Humansuh.
Faerys:Small Humans with wings.
Haflings:Humans half the size of regular Humans.
Orcs: Large Humans with clubs.
Eves: Tall Humans with pointy ears, or short humans with pointy ears. Depends if you follow the Santa sterotype or no.
Dwarfs: Short, strong Humans.

Ah, techinacality, is there anything you can't do?

FYI:

Look at the names of the Avian military, Harpies, Griffins, and Drakes.

Harpies, what I believe, are half ugly human, half ugly bird.

Griffins, are lion's legs, bird body

Drakes, are small dragons.

So Avians are probably just all flying creatures teamed up together.
