When will u add the races to the game , and will u also add classes maybe?

re: when will I add races, I'm not sure yet.

re: will I add classes, probably not.  I'm not sure I see the point yet given other things.

But why would you need a class for that?  Just "be" a Barbaric Mage.  Learn to fight... collect magic abilities.

Classes are kind of a symptom of the XP reward problem.

Ah! That sounds cool! Rather than picking a class you are stuck with, you can learn your own traits. I love that idea.

Well, let's just go with "acquire" your own traits.  "Learn" sounds too much like "I made 500 arrow heads and now I'm a level 2 arrow head maker, wahoo!!"

The cat faces are in mass attack. Heh, It would be REALLY annoying if the avian race could fly with bows. Hehe. CUPIDS!

Avians can certainly fly with bows.  Weight is their only restriction so they will try to avoid landing because they have no armor to speak of... so of course they will use bows and slings and other thrown projectiles.  Even anything above a short sword could be problematic for accidentally chopping off part of a wing.

Reptilians will be fun for PvP... though they will sometimes require some patience because of being cold-blooded.  Also, their lack of expansion slots limits them somewhat against another player who has really tailored their character through long hard experience.

I didn't think of that (so many little details). So you will maybe set up a system that works with seasons/weather in order to affect the player, as in humans are slower in winter/summer and reptilians need to be aware of body heat and so on for all the races.

In general, I think temperature will have affect fatigue in some way.  Extreme heat and cold will act like extreme fatigue even if you aren't really tired... which will in turn affect healing, etc.

I definitely want weather and seasons to affect game play.

In reptilians, temperature will have an even more dramatic effect since cold will affect movement speed and reaction time, also.  If a reptilian uses there one magic slot to have some kind of heater they will be pretty powerful fighters in all weather... though it would have to be powered by their life force to be useful, I think.  And that will have its own downsides.

This all looks amazing, the races, the weather, the backstory, the magic, the (hopefully emerald green) dragon, it all sounds engaging and lots of fun! keep up the good work Paul! I've been thinking about this game nonstop and i have been toying with many ideas in the direction I hope/wish mythruna is going. I'm going to start brainstorming and soon will start a big post on concepts i'd like in this forum section, i hope i can help in any way.
