    i strongly feel the more races the better and i was thinking of an idea for a new race one day in the future an Undead Race. i think it would be pretty cool if we could have an undead character race maybe with a few differnt looks as an option or just one look. one possable look might look like a skeleton or a zombie or a lich lord or a vampire or maybe something else just a thought any or all will do.

    Nah, we already got Lich Form and Vampire Form (Too bad they nerfed Vampire Form for Necro/Mages though). I used to RP a Vampire awhile back (Before AoS), when i was in Vampires of Carafax (V*C).

    They still need to introduce a Orc Race, and they are supposed to introduce the Gargoyle Race if/when Stygian Abyss comes out. Gargoyles are supposed to be able to Fly. From what i remember, you won't be able to transform an existing char into a Gargoyle, you'd have to create a new one (Sounds like EA trying to sell Character Slot upgrades.)

    Are revenants undead? If so, they would FOR SURE win a race against other undead.

    Well then, I got 10 large on the revs.
     
  9. Undead isn't a race, it's a state of being.

    The fact that WoW made an undead race says volumes about their silly game...

    For one, I'm 99% sure vampires were never apart of Ultima. Neither were playable undead. The reason for this is Ultima Online was designed to allow humans to be humans in a fantasy world.

    The second problem is that people love to "help" Ultima by offering suggestions that do their best to convert Ultima into every other fantasy world. Hey dwarves are in Warcraft, let's add those to Ultima, that'll attract people! This is silly. The more you make this game similar to other worlds, the less reasons people in those other have to leave.

    Considering that undead are usually brought to life via dark and evil magic (or plagues) they wouldn't be fitting as "blue" characters.

    Well actually.. the WoW Fallen/Undead are/were Humans. It's even described as such in their lore.

    Fuzzies for the Win!

    You can have an undead character now.

    Load up KR

    Log into desired character to make undead

    Go to Body Sculptor

    Choose Undead

    Viola... your character is now an undead.

    It's a pity those meer and juka were only body paints rather than a decently created and seperate race... much better candidates than elves.

    Personally, I'd rather see ALL player races being nothing more than "body paints" in UO. Since we already have the freedom to build our characters any way we wish, trying to keep "racial abilities" enjoyable yet balanced is just another monkey wrench to throw into the works.

    Let people use the "body paints" and roleplay the character/race. It's worked for 10 years so far for a LOT of people.

    I have top agree with Dermott of LS, I think the race thing should be more for RPing than abilities, although I do love my elves. Shrugs.

    The best thing about that, is that these "races" from the body scultpures, are also "unofficial". It's for RP purposes and nothing more really.

    Just like people used to roleplay elves back in teh day, it was never official until Mondain's Legacy. So if I chose to ignore it, that was fine. Just like if they chose to RP it (no matter how weak I thougth the idea) it didn't hinder anyone else.


    It kept both parties happy. Those who agreed with Ultima's human (only) exploration and those who didn't agree and wanted gargoyles, orcs, meer and juka to become playable.
     
  23. KR sucks. The body sculptor is a cute idea, but not enough to make me actually use that client.
     
  24. Agreed.

    I'll go one further.

    UO sucks and that is why I refuse to use either client.

    Till I see something new(SA), EA won't get another penny from me.
     
  25. I was just saying undead is a state... human is a race. Saying you're race is undead is kinda like saying your race is "living"

    But what Raina was trying to express is that the undead in Warcraft call themselves the Forsaken Undead. They don't consider themselves a part of the human race anymore. They are the forsaken. Technically they are undead humans, but they don't refer to themselves nor consider themselves as that race.
