tbh a bunny barbarian sounds nice.. though you'd have to watch out for holy grenades

FrozenSolid wrote:"Have you come to claim the bounty on me?" The adventuer asked nervously

"Slurp" The ooze confirmed.

"What if I pay you off, how much is it?!" The adventuer countered desperately

"Gllllurp" The ooze said tauntingly.

The adventuer fell to his knees in dismay. Who had he angered to have the notorius gelatinous bounty hunter come for him?

The ooze bubbled ominously as a glowing greatsword came glooping out of its inner gelatin.

The adventuer looked on in horror. Whatever madman had created self aware Ooze was surely a danger to all kingdoms of Toril

The Gelatin lurched, ending the adventuer where he knelt. Mercenary work was a bloody job, but an Ooze does what he must for his baby oozlings. One life for another. The circle of life.

The ooze slurped away then, not looking back.

i was checking out an EE server where you could be “reborn” as a monstrous race of your choice after hitting lvl 40 cap...needless to say it was a lot of fun and an interesting concept

1-40 cap..."Redemption for Salvation"

bare in mind it's more of an action arena server than a RP server tho

Giths. I'm not sure if our timeline allows them however as I'm not sure when Gith freed her people.

Tanarukks. Demon half-orcs. I mean what else do you really need to know?

A rogue modron though the idea of one existing is in itself hard to believe.
Maybe a modron that was left during one of the great marches and became corrupted.

Aarakocra might be a more plausible race for the server.
I'd hate to see one try to attempt a dungeon crawl roleplay with genetic claustrophobia.

I totally think some creative team should work together to create a new race original to Arelith in Faerun. Why look for lore about a million half-assedly written creatures each alike the other when instead we can have something new and interesting that fits OUR world, OUR tastes and preferences in the realm of Arelith rather than what some Ed Greenwood and his minions have thought up to be compatible with FR, which is practically an endless quilt of influences from so many folklores and their derivatives into popular culture.

Bring back the myarts and let us play as them 2018.

In all seriousness, though, I love seeing Arelith-specific lore, so Arelith specific monsters and monstrous playable races would be great to see.

Neogi. They have a really interesting faith system and iirc models in NWN so it's an easy thing to implement so we can start real underdark rp!

Gibberling. I'd start a Gibber-Gang in the sewers. Get ready for a mole-man invasion equivalent, Cordor.

How about a mimic? It'd be like shifter, but for inanimate objects. And would give people a healthy fear of furniture.
