Another Idea! And compeltely shocked not been given before... (in General)

Okay, like I said I am stunned no one ever suggested this before. AND its not in the frequently given retarded suggestions. So, to make this easy, I sum it up fast. RACES.

Never understood why this game doesn't have them. You could start with just 4, (orc, elf, human, undead, like all the other games). Give them some unique abilities. Each interacting in different ways with what you give them. Such as orcs would do slightly better with melee weapons but worse with ranged. You could interact them with other races even.

Then the question is do you make the character a race and all minions that same race. Or change it minion to minion? If you did it minion to minion their effects would have to be toned down( so multi minion teams didn't get some huge monstrous advantage).

Umm, I didn't go into specifics. I don't want to unbalance the game and seem like an idiot by saying orcs auto get +5% to strength lol.

So post ideas here for, or against races, and possible races and their effects.

Oh and two effects I DO NOT want to see. Increased money or exp. That messes with the game too much I think.

It would definatly make the game/strat a tad more interesting. Doubting they would do it though. But, it'd be nice.

If you want to see races, go play Guildwars or something.

Umm Guild wars = lame? I play this game. So I give suggestions for THIS game. I think races would add a whole new level to the gameplay. DEFINITELY more options. And alot of fun if the specifics of each race were kept secret.

I'm still looking for the thread, but I brought this up in a "what changes would you like to see thread" a few months ago. I've got notes somewhere where I worked out a ton of details to make it workable in "CB terms" (what races have what skills/penalties, what races are compatible/incompatible, stuff like that...).

Woot go BM. Man, I swear, he never lets anyone down lol.

Barzoo:, Valiek and Oddbird have said it also.

This should be the next entry into the FORS list.

SuiteStuff [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] July 26 2006 3:39 PM EDT

its been offered many times but that changes the whole game and makes it into a new game...we have something close to a race which is called realms! beginners are in Shire all the way up to gondor which is Pro's...that technically could be the races all though there is no benifit to them.

What would happen if I mated my immortal elf minion with my undead minion?

Anyways, I think the idea of races has been brought up a few times in CB1 and probably CB2. Not an entirely bad idea but definitely something that has been raised before and apparently not accepted (yet) by Jonathan.

As it is now, you can theoretically create your own races by how you train and equip your minion, then again, what do I know... I have yet to break 50k PR

Just sayin'...

Probably wouldn't ad much.. in the sense that you end up making enchanters-some race, melee people-some other race, archers-another race, mages-yet another race, walls-that last race.
