    Default 2 New Races for Telara

    Hey all, I'm a huge Rift Enthusiest, and I really like where the game is heading ! But eventually Trion will be making an expansion (Hopefully lol), and the goal would probably be to outdo WoW/Blizzard (Which I believe they have already done in game quality)... To sell the new expansion, it needs to appeal to new players, and new players like shiney things lol. That brings me to the point of this, new races (ideas)... I'm just gonna post a couple of my ideas, and I'd like to see what others have ...

    Gaurdians
    For the Gaurdians, you need something that fits this Faction. Therefore, something faithfull, strong, and religious! Something favored by the Vigil. For this idea, I thought of a rather unique concept of....

    THE LEONITES
    Long in the southern deserts, the Ethians and the Bahmi have mercilessly hunted Lions. For their hides, the bones, or for just the Glory. Lions were almost hunted to the point of extinction in the Southern deserts. But the Vigil took pity on their noble creation. With that Tavaril blessed many of the Lions with thought, making them walk upright as man, and ascending many of their long gone heroes to life. Hence the creation of the Leonites. With an unwavering loyalty to the Vigil, and an Undying hatred of the Ethians and their Defiance, they will become the new heroes of the Gaurdians and indeed, Telara!

    This Race would be the Gaurdians "Big Guys". Their version of the Bahmi... I see this being a race that would kinda be like WoW's Worgen (A HUGE expansion seller)... Maybe make the prolouge of their campaign is during the Ethian Empire, and you are a Leonite fighting of hordes of Ethian/bahmi armies in the desert. You end up dying in the end, and are ascended during the present day to fight Regulos and the heretics...

    Here are some images...

    DEFIANTS
    For the Defiants, you need something that is stubbern, intelligent, and could easily fit wiht "Magitech"... The Problem is I'm trying to think of a name for them lol. But without further ado,

    DEFIANT DWARVES (Creative Name pending )
    After the fall of Hammerknell, not ALL dwarves repented of their "sins" and returned to the vigil. On the contrary, to belive they were united in their faith beforehand would be a misconception! The Dwarven Race had always been drawn to Technology, and with the Ethian mastery of the Sourcestones, many ventured away from the Vigil. But after Hammerknell's fall, what began with a few adventurous scholors, has become an entire movement... Andventurers they are, but this has not gone unnoticed. Their exposure to Kelari magic, Southern climate, and and docile life (Due to their technology), their appearance has began to change... With their new allies, they may yet save Hammerknell for the Defiants!!!

    I figured this would fit well because of the Dwarven disposition to Technology. Who else would the Defiants rely on to take the secrets of Hammerknell (lvls 35-40)? Also, in fantasy, Dwarves are often divided and fight amongst eachother. The new appearance I had in mind would be to reduce some of the muscle tone, and facial hair and add more "Youthfull/Impish" facial features. What I kinda had in mind was a half between Santa's Elves lol/Gnomes/Hobbits... The beginning of this campaign would begin with the Abyssal assault on Hammerknell. You fight Demons and the Cultists until you are overrun, die, and are ascended by the Defiants in present day...


    IN CONCLUSION!!! Hey these are creative ideas that I think will sell and make Trion money lol! People want something better yet different from WoW, I say they should be given it ... Thank you

    Wow, i genuinly have fallen in love with the Leonites. And it is true worgens was one of the main reasons people re-subbed wow in my area.

    I was thinking seeing the leonite kinda reminded me of Underworld for some reason so maybe the defiant could get some Vampire related race. Just my opinion though but yes totally want Leonites now!

    Wouldn't Gnomes be more defiant than a dwarf? Gnomes are very mechanical/tinkerers.

    Thank you all for your support of the Leonites, I really do believe if Trion incorperated them, they would be WoW killers themselves lol.... I oneday wish to make a Leonite Paladin whenever a game takes my idea ...

    Personally I agree with you lol, but I think Dwares should have originally been placed with the Defiants. But what is done is done, so for now the Defiants need a little race. Gnomes were an idea of mine, but again it reeks of WoW... I mean, I do agree that they WOULD fit perfectly, but what physical attributes you have in mind? Or what kind of plot?

    Vampires are already servants of Regulos (The Hag in Gloamwood). I mean, I COULD see them being incorperated... Their rise from death (An early Defiant attempt at Ascension gone wrong), Their natural scientific intelligence, and that tad bit of "Unholliness" that makes them an exact opposite of Leonites. Give me some time and I could think up a story plotline

    Another idea I had for the defiants was a small rodent race of sorts... I could see that selling well too. But at this time I have NO plot thought up for that lol!

    Dwarves, gnomes and tiny mouse race for defiant doesnt fit it all imo, they look and fit the guardians much more. Defiant if they added a new race in the future should have a more semi evil alligned race. I have always wanted to play an ogre, on creating your new ogre warrior you should always have the option of choosing a 2 headed 1, there would be tons of options to create very funny voices which would involve both heads, for me it wouldnt matter at all if my character would sound slightly stupid it would just add to the fun. Doesnt always need to be a race of "i r evil dragonbornundeadslayer race of doom"

    2 headed ogres ftw!

    But the Defiants arn't evil lol! Their out to save Telara themselves, only without the Vigil... BUT Ogres don't have to be evil per say, look at Shrek lol! Sorry 2 headed ogres remind me of Dire Maul and WoW lol...

    What about an Amphibious race? I kinda get my inspiration from the Zoras in Zelda lol...
    http://media.photobucket.com/image/z...Album/Zora.gif

    Their passive abillity would be able to breath underwater longer than the other races, and active would be able to swim up to 70% faster for a time

    If TW ever adds more races, they need to make them attractive-looking, or no one will want to play them.

    Agreed, hence Leonites lol! One of the problems with WoW is that you have one side that looks pretty, and the other side looks evily ******ed when it isn't lol... Too many people want Rift to be a new WoW, THIS ISN'T WOW AND WE NEED TO MOVE ON LOL!

    I thought of a Vampire plot if folk wanna hear it

    **** that

    i am tired of all the clone races we have as is on both sides. in the game, there are really only 4 playable races (humans, Elf, Dwarf, Bahmi)

    I want less clone races, and more uniqueness.

    WoW has 10 unique races that players can play. yet Rift has only 4. SMH, and the OP wants to add another clone race?

    from original lore before retcon

    the High Elfs had a mortal enemy the Orkca

    I would like to see what the race look like from the concept art, but Trion wont release the old concept art for some reason

    NO! NO more dwarves or gnomes, please, anywhere, except as targets. I really like the vampire type of suggestion. It has to be an out of the box concept. Keep going with the vampire thingy.
    Just, comfortably numb....

    Wait... Are you implying that's no bug?
