Because it's more realistic. Seriously, what would happen if an Amarrian mated with a Minmatar? The child can't be referred to as one or the other, and would have to be an Amarr/Minmatar cross race.

So, in the character creation screen, you choose your "primary" race - Which will influence your starting location, starting school, and what type of frigate you have trained to level 2.

The "secondary" race will be for solely RP and for the looks of your character. Setting it to the same as your primary race will result in you being one of the four races, while setting it to something different will result in a cross-race.

If you choose to be a cross-race, you'll also have to choose two different bloodlines (One for each parent) And two different ancestries. If you chose to just be one race, it's the same as what we have now.

This would have absolutely no impact on gameplay, but it would make it more realistic and RP-friendly. Of course, it can wait until certain other pressing issues are sorted out. (In around 18 months?Twisted Evil)

Wouldn't the cross-breeds just be slaves, anyway?

I like this idea. It would make the WiS idea more realistic too.

I can tell you there are no mongrel minmatar children, because we space any ***** who sleeps around with other races, long before they give birth.

we Minmatar pride ourselves in keeping our bloodlines clean

So what? We are all humans, just with very different cultures (called Races by the game). So if there is interbreeding the child will grown up under one of those cultures.

And the game doesn't stop you as a minmatar rolled character to get high standings with amarr and **** your minmatar standings up so you can't go in minmatar highsec without being shot.

With other words, no thanks no need for new types of races.

Because it's more realistic.


In a game where a Titan can bounce off a tiny little can, where you have to travel across a universe to read a book, but can instantly appear in a new clone the same distance when you die, in a universe where travel is more akin to underwater .. than space ....

... and you're using as an argument an appeal to 'realism'?

I think the last thing we need at this point is mix'ed races.

well the sansha have been active latley stealing residents of all worlds. Using jove bases. Perhaps a new sub sansha faction with new ships and perhaps 10 new solar systems with 20% tougher resists etc. Or even expand the npc corps out in 00. Add a few more systems perhaps with splinter groups
