    Kobolds on Ebberon are a sort of Dragonkin, aren't they?

    In ETK we see Khyber Paragon Kobolds, what about PC Siberys Paragon Kobolds?

    The Kobolds in ETK are corrupted by the energies of Khyber, so perhaps PC Kobolds could be Uplifted by the energy of Siberys (possibly as a side effect of all this Dragonshard collecting...)

    With that sort of backstory/justification, we reskin PC kobolds slightly (let the art department do some showing off), to make them look more like sleek versions of the Paragon kobolds, and less like scaly rat/kender. Under the influence of Siberys they gain +2 Cha, +2 Wis, -2 Int, -2 Str.

Thri-kreen could also happen upon a bridge to another world. Or could be brought here through a summoning spell gone awry. A mispronounced word, or even a mispronounced consonat or vowel, could have harsh repurcussions.
    I think you need to research more on how drow came about on Eberron they didnt come from somewhere else. and Thri-kreen are or were already here.


    The drow on Eberron were created there

    While not offical its close as can be.

    In the orignial Eberron book there was no way to get from FR or GH to eberron

    Default Gnomes!

    1) Gnomes! They are funny! Also, they make great artificers, wizards (especially illusion based), bards, and rogues (mixed in with spellcasting). What's truly to hate about such an awesome blue bared race! ;-)
    2) Gnomes - see 1!
    3) Gnomes - see 1! ;-)

    Default races

    I don't think we will see any new races until after the enhancement pass. They have too much code to rewrite as it is. Then, we may see a whole lot of new races and classes! I can't wait! Someone should start a thread about familiars and what everyone wants as theirs too. I want a pseudo dragon!

    I would love to see Gnomes in DDO. They are an original race and would make awesome artificers (er, at least the Dragonlance ones would).

    If you could play any D&D themed race in-game, what would it be... and why? Feel free to name your top 3!
    1) True Dragon - The simplest why is because they are cool. While I haven't measured it up with with how many extra abilities stat bonuses and everything else players get I think they could be done in a playable manner without being over powered.
    2) Half-Dragon - Because second best is still better than nothing.
    3) Assimar - Since it could have a little be of something for every one. Good synergy possibilites with several classes in game.

    Pixies or Sprites

    For pure arcane power (as in not dragon tainted), albeit mostly sorcery related. Or for rogues who like to do proper rogish jobs, with lots of evasion, trickery and running away (while someone is still alive it is not a wipe), but are not into the fighting thing, tough are able to sneak back and bring the fallen back to a shrine.

    Besides, translucent sparkling multicolored wings are always awesome, the dust being a bônus.

    Default Eberron Races!!!!

    Any player character race from the Eberron setting. Changelings, Shifters, and Kalashtar. Goblin would also be interesting.

    Since you've already introduced PDKs and Sun Elves, the time may be ripe to introduce gnomes and kobolds. Imagine, a kobold monk! MWAHAHAHA! "Kobold remember waterworks... Oh hey cousin! Why you beat me with your fists??!"

    I think kobolds are the most popular choice for a new race, and believe Turbine could monetize nicely off of them.

    That being said, I think Changelings and Kobolds should be the next races, released simultaneously.

    The Changeling racial enhancement tree would include several exclusive toggles to change into other races and perhaps a few humanoid monsters at the top end.

    The Kobold racial enhancement tree would include several draconian abilities, like a minor form of dragon breath and SLA's keyed to a specific element, chosen at the first innate in tier 0.

    Seeing how there's so much travel between realms now, it would only be appropriate to introduce the Githyanki

    We could use about 9 more Iconic over the next 2~4 years.

    Put in place Iconic Completionist auto grant feat.

    Plenty of room there, along with a few nonIconic races?

    Tehre was a count/poll down a while back.

    Kobolds obliterated everything else, Gnomes were in a distant second (most wanted tinker gnomes not rock gnomes), Aasimar, Tielflings and some sort of Dragonborne/Half-Dragon/Draconian were so close in votes they may as well be tied for 3rd (I think they were off each by 5ish votes), after that was about 30 different races with 5-10 votes like Sahugin or Bugbears, than a few race with 1 or 2 votes including things like Beholders or Actual fully fledged dragons.

    Personally In order I'd like DDO Kobolds, Tinker Gnomes, Lesser Tieflings, Lesser Aasimar

    Thats actually a really cool idea...may I ask though why +2 Wis as opposed to Dex? I wouldn't exactly call Kobolds wise but their definitely Charming and dexterous

    Out of most games I have played I really enjoyed the races in Wizardry 8 , they had a fantastic selection and each race felt it brought something new to the table. don't get me wrong I LOVE DDO , but after trying every different race I felt that they were too similar for me to favor one in particular. I'm not sure if thats a good or bad thing !

    I cant remember the specific names but the were hobbit , gnome , Faerie , Felpur (cat) , Rawolf (wolf) , Lizzardman , Mook (chewbacca!) , dracon.

    Utterly brilliant !
