Just wanted to get an update on what might be happening with character customization and whether or not we might be able to choose among different playable races. I do remember Swen having an interest in adding different playable races into the game, but did not have the resources at the time. However, after such a successful kickstarter and from paypal, I hope it would be possible for the developers to maybe add some different playable races. I know this fairly unlikely given the completion of the game at this point; though it could be possible in any expansions or even by some capable modders. biggrin

Anyway, I am not too familiar with the Divinity universe besides playing Divinity 2 and a bit of Divine Divinity. What I have noticed is that races fall under the usual dark fantasy category. So for the sake of conversation, what would everyone want to be able to play as if different playable races were an option in the future?

Other playable races were considered for one of the stretch goals, but didn't make the cut (presumably not enough perceived benefit for the amount of work to do right, considering a minority of people replay RPGs multiple times).

Problem with several playable races is that they have to pretty much alter every single NPC in the game, depending on which race they are confronted with. That's a shit ton of work.

imo it's not worth the amount of work they'd have to put in it. I'd rather see them work on other stuff.

That is not to say I wouldn't want this included. Ambitious modders might make this available later on. Who knows..

yeah it could be really fun to play a gobelin but adding races just for having new races is not really fun. What could be interesting is different options in different situations or in the dialogues regarding your race^^
