Stop suggesting they remove more races or else they'll implement more Frogs.

Otherwise very well constructed and sensible post, but saying that Vampires' theme originates from Twilight is just unacceptable :)

interesting.

[Especially with Ogres now also having newly-improved casting apts, there's a
very wide range of hybrid/magic-oriented species, with High Elves being
increasingly redundant. -MarvinPA]

Re: ITT we remove races

Races were a relatively uninteresting mechanic in terms of gameplay, feeling somewhat like a character template but with specialization like aptitudes. Their theme originates from Dungeons and Dragons, a source of lore that crawl is trying to borrow less from these days. Their differentiating qualities not withstanding, this particular D&D reference wasn't particularly interesting.

But tengu are based on D&D birdpeople
it's only the name that comes from Japanese mythology

Sounds like people want to read more of my greatest commit messages. The high elf one is nice, but by no means my finest. I'll post a few later today.

Please say Octopode so we can finally rework them. They're so close to being fun.

Lets create some armor for them. Felids should be able to wear hats, octopodes should have atleast some armor or something. Give them the ability to wear cloaks

Re: ITT we remove races

Jokes aside, I would like cloak on Octopode. It'd give them access to more early AC and a few more resistances later on. They're almost magikarp tier, please. I love magikarp races.

Re: ITT we remove races

'ITT we remove races' was a relatively uninteresting thread in terms of amusement value, feeling somewhat like a twelve post but expressing genuine gameplay criticism like minmay. Its theme originates from crawl development, a source of humor that CYC is trying to borrow less from these days. Its gorgeous range of species parodies not withstanding, this particular gameplay reference wasn't particularly interesting.
