It just so happens that I came up with a odd little race once upon a time, which I used several time in various Pencil and Paper RPG's, Call it a cross between a Gnome and a harpy, yet its a separate race, not a cross breed.

I figure it wouldn't be taller than a Ped (wingspan being twice or so the height) and no more than 35 to 40 ods at most.

Naturally I understand the rule of races and newbies but I think this might nudge a braincell or two...



Both Images are not usable for Santharia, I just thought an image would add to any ideas.

@ Mira: As far as I understood, new races are offlimits for members as well ;) But maybe Nybelmar is  not Sarvonia, don't know.

Bjrn, your pics are lovely, but they are so close to the harpies of WoW, they could just be taken from there.
And no, I do not think we need a new race which is not really "new", but can be found in many other created worlds out there. IF, then it should be something, which only Caelereth has.

Which might be difficult though. sometimes I think the WoW creators have looked in several heads and stolen the ideas there. Or was all already existent somewhere? When I fly over the landscape I often think, oh, that was my idea for the Wastes of Despair, why do I see it here? I thought, it was MY cool idea. I found even a tree which immediately reminded me of the shattered tree of life....

New TRIBES aren't quite the same as new RACES, though.  I know races are banned, but I don't think tribes are completely off-limits (to members) But even tribe development is extremely complex and requires a very good working knowledge of Santharia,  an ability to do in-depth research, a creative and flexible mind, and an ability to integrate it into the desired location.    A decent working knowledge of Santharia takes time to achieve, which it why we tend to point newbies to animals or plants at first, to get a feel for this place.  Much easier to integrate a turtle than a tribe.  :D

Bjorn, your pictures are beautiful.  Are you the artist?

The right picture is a harpy from WoW, Alysse.

Oh, I see.  I'm not familiar with WoW myself.  Just wishful thinking on my part, I'm always on the lookout for artists to lure in here--and not for the greenhouses either. :D

Well, we snuck in a new race by putting it in the bestiary not that long ago Talia. Nobody noticed thus far, mainly because we kept it so vague and mythical.

But there are a few undescribed races left in Nybelmar, such as Coren's Conchfolk, and a low-intelligence sentient flying squirrel Twen dreamed up a while ago. It just might happen....
