3. Quarren :tessek:
4. Duros :duros:
5. Devaronian
6. Gran :D

Droids? Are you serious?....... ok

And why the hell would you want to be a pig-like Gamorrean?

Ah well.. each to their own.

1) Chiss (Admiral Thrawn.)
2) Noghri (Death commando's)
3) Kel Dor (Jedi Master Plo Koon)

1 jawa. why? a lot of people want to be one.
2 Sulustan. why? they play a big part of the SW universe
3 Gungan. why? cause i actualy want to Kill a Char played being of Gungan :D
4 weequay. why? they are technical good. i think for the space EP
5 Selonian. why? i have a feeling they will make the Corellian sector complete some day.
6 Malestarian. wy? it was in almost every movie.

I don't see the Chiss or Noghri getting into the game.

The Noghri were very rare off of their home planet and were entirely in the service of the Empire.

I believe Thrawn was the first Chiss anyone had encountered and was the only one know to be in the region in which the game is played (untill the New Jedi Order books).

I like Legacy of Sith's list with the addition of Sullustians.

-Droids shouldn't be playable(in my opinion) thats what droid mechanics are for, right? You can own lots of them though. :r2d2:

-Koon's race would definately be awesome :koon:

-I'd like to see some Dugs, that would be awesome. :dug:

-Gungans: this is controversial because everyone hates Jar Jar and Boss Nass but that race in general is pretty cool. They have awesome technology as well. The worst part is the language, but even that can sound cool. (remember the grey-skinned general w/ the little catfish-looking mustache in Ep1, he was cool)

-Chodru-Ji: this was a race in one of the expanded universe novels. They start their lives as blue-furred, six-legged wolves, then at about 15 years of age, they undergo complete metamophasis. The adult form is basically a human with four arms, all adults are supposidly very attractive by human standards. They have english sounding names like Chamberlain.

-Kaminoans? just a thought, they are supposed to see ultraviolet light. Their big white city was actually brightly colored to them.

-NO EWOKS :ion: :ewok:

-maybe Jawas though. jawas rarely leave Tatooine so that would be a problem. :jedijawa:

Yeah sullustan is another species I want to play as but I didn't list them cause I wanted to keep the list short. A couple of additional species I'd also want to see in the game are:

1. Gungan- :gungan: it'll apeal to mainstream fans :jarjar:
2. Aqualish- they are an interesting species and ponda boba was cool.
3. Bith- For the sake of species variety :band:
4. Sullastan- (i agree totally with wraith) :nien:

I think they should include the Montanan!

They would be, of course, STUPID, wouldn't know basic lang., would never get FS, and could only taunt people from the other side of the map. And they the create the Planet Montana, Half Mountain, half desert!

how about dug...its not races its species ;)

How about non-humanoid species? I don't know any examples from the top of my head, but it would be cool, wouldnt it? Maybe an insectoid species?

hmmmmm...... would Ithorians (aka Hammerheads) count? I always thought they were cool. I don't know of any insectoid species. The problem is many aliens in Star Wars are humanoid. Very few space-faring species have more than 2 arms or legs etc.

edit: I just remembered. The Verpine are an insectoid species. They helped desogn the B-Wing fighter with Ackbar, i'm not sure of their appearence though.

I do think the Gran is non-humanoid.

If i am wrong plez correct me.

and i agree with u all in the new species except for the jawas. Because everyone will want to be one and then there will be to many jawas on every planet, plus they need to stay were they belong.

Humanoid means two arms, two legs, etc. So Gran is humanoid. Personally, I think the Gran or Weequay should be in the game....they seem to be some of the most frequently refernced aliens out of those that have not been chosen. After all, to the casual star wars fan a gran would be recognized as star wars before a sullastan.

Jawa's... they would kinda be the "bards" of this MMORPG :p

But really, theres always players that joke around and dont really care about being the best fighter.. gungans would be perfect for them :p

They would also be able to breath underwater and find hidden... stuff ;)
And they could have an advantage in gungan weapon skills because the gungan weapons are quite different from your normal blaster...
(ADD THOSE GUNGAN SHIELDS PLEASE!) ;)

Can someone run by me what a malestarian is again? It sounds familiar, but I can't remember.

Gaelin Masek
06-17-2002, 04:53 AM
I believe they are called Grans. Brownish skin, three eyes and a snout-like mouth.

U shoot alot of them in the Jedi Knight games. :D

I know what grans are. I didn't know where they came from.

Wraith 8
06-17-2002, 03:35 PM
well i dint know the name species :D

but in ep1... valorum clearly stated:
the chair did not recgonize the honarble delagetes of malestare.

so i thought.. hey... malestarians :D

Lord Helmet
06-17-2002, 09:40 PM
they gotta implement kit fisto species...

RoyalGuard
06-18-2002, 07:25 AM
I'd like to see:

Gotals (have telepathic non-force related powers)
Falleen (Prince Xixor)
Gand (Zuckuss and Ooryl)
Ithorians (hammerhead style)
Talz (Big white and furry)

Just to add more variety.

Lord Helmet

Love the list man!

Love the list man!

Thanks :D

As for the Yuuzhan-Vong, it would be cool at some later date to have the Y-V invade our galaxy, as a grande finale when they decided to shut down the SWG server (to make way for SWG 2 possibly?)

MikeC
06-19-2002, 01:19 AM
Well, unless they change thier minds about the static timeline there will never be Vong in the game.

Lord Helmet
06-19-2002, 03:42 AM
there could be a couple scouts...before they make their attack though...always possible....

and what hell is kit fisto's species we need him in the game!

Wings_SWmud
06-19-2002, 04:17 AM
Bah! Bimms, people, we need Bimms! Ithorians, I suppose, would be the pacifist players' dream...spend a lifetime growing your plants, retire to a herdship and open a little shop =)

Go Bimms and Iths =)

Ithorians would make really good doctors, biologists and other herbal/healing characters. A good balance to all combat heavy species (trandoshan and wookies, especially).

Wraith 8
06-19-2002, 03:23 PM
but thos vongs (or however they are spelled) arent in the sw universe untill the new jedi order.... i think we sooner will see Ssi-Ruuk then those... vong charachters.

Gaelin Masek
06-21-2002, 02:46 AM
So we're talking humanoid characters with no completly abnormal attributes like metre long necks...

Althought I will probably be human whatever happens, I would definetly be tempted by Kel'Dor :koon:

RoyalGuard
06-21-2002, 07:02 AM
Of course, seeing as all aliens are inferior to humans, there'd be little point in having any more aliens, but it adds to the variety...

Gaelin Masek
06-22-2002, 12:11 AM
Is that why Humans are the only ones who do not excel in any attribute, have any languages to start off with other than Basic and do not have any special abilties?

Sails - Wind = Ho ho ho

The only reason I want to be human is because I've done a lot of role-playing in JK clans and written a lot of stories and personally I would like to be the character I set myself.

And even then I'm a little reluctant about choosing the 'average' race who are really nothing special in attributes.

Oh and by what I have seen there are gonna be WAY more aliens than humans...

06-22-2002, 12:21 AM
I thnk there should be dug...Sebulba was cool, imagine the fun you could have with all those extra arms. :D

Jan Gaarni
06-22-2002, 04:47 AM
Hehe, what extra arms? He walks on his arms and uses his feet for other things. Wierd guy that Sebulba. :D

I disagree, humans are just the building block for all other species to be compared to. I personally would rather be a transhodan than a human if i'm fighting a wookie!

I'd say have Jawas be Non-Playable Characters.

Heres the species I'd like to see:

1. Nikto(Predator-looking humanoid of the Hutt Criminal Empire)

2. Clawdite(I mean morphing into whatever you want, that would be awesome)

3. Kaminoan(There enviroment is very...um...bright)

4. Neimoidian(If your the trading type)

5. Sullustan(They just are funny-looking)

6. Tusken Raider(This would just be awesome)
7. Ugnaught(For the Hell of it)

8. Weequay(Because they look pretty sweet)

9. Yuuzhan Vong(Would make a very cool looking Sith. You'll know what I mean by the picture below)

THAT'S IT!!!

The reason why Yuuzhan Vong is imune to the force. They are all dissendents of the the Old Sith Empire. :D :D :D

Since Tusken Raider is one of my favorite species, I'll post a link to a good resource page for all my fellow insomniacs to gaze at:

http://www.angelfire.com/oh/shoju/starwarsrpg/races/tusken.html

You may ask "Why are you interested in the Tusken Raiders, their technology is that of the Ewoks'." Well guess what...I had the Star Wars comic books but was missing one until now:
issue #10(Part 4 of 6 of the Outlander "Chapter")

Well just look at this cover. Magnifico!

Zendjir
06-22-2002, 06:41 PM
Yeah :) I have that series too, it's amazing! It would be really cool to see some tusken secret revealed in SWG, deep and mysterious. But I don't think that they will ever become a playable species, because they hardly ever leave Tatooine.

adrian832
06-22-2002, 06:50 PM
Hey if I would gete the chance to become a Tusken(Maybe even Jedi Tusken) I would gladly give up intergalactic travel.

Heres another picture(Sorry for posting these so many times there just spactacular):

Ok so let's recap. The sum of the species people want to see in the expansions (no particualar order) are:
1. Nikto 2. Kaminoan 3. Weequay 4. Dug 5. Gamorrean 6.Gran
7. Chiss 8. Sullustan 9.Quarren 10. Gungan 11. Noghri
12. Geonisian 13. Bith 14. Ithorian 14. Talz 15. Gotal 16. Devaronian 17. Aqualish 18. Neimoidian 19. Duros 20. Faleen 21. Gand 22. Chodru-Chi 23. Verpine 24. Kel Dor 25. Selonian 26. Yuuhzan Vong 27. Jawas 28. Droids 29. Hutt 30. Clawdite
31. Tusken Raiders 32. Ugnaught

So lets see the 32 suggested species + the 8 confirmed playable species = 40 species! Multiply that by 25 professions = 1000+ possible play styles! Now that's diversity!

Sounds Risky
06-24-2002, 05:02 AM
Someone said that the casual fan would recognize the Gran before they recognize the Sullustan.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Nien Nunb rocks and everyone remembers him. They remember him as many things. Lando's sidekick, the guy with the funny lips, the guy with the big ears. the guy that talked funny. Everyone remembers and loves him. Long live Nien Nunb!

Kel Dor
Gran
Jawa
Chiss - Although I doubt it would be integrated into the game.
Tusken Raiders - Tatooine is one of the worlds ya know...
Clawdites
Transdoshans
Zabrak(Iridonian)
Ithorian
Vurk - Coleman Trebor is awesome.

I can't think of anymore, brain is fried at the moment.

Ongree - Phenominal facial design.
Quermian - Incredible intellect.
Hutt
Phuii - Mars Guo
Kaminoan
Toydarian - Watto
Falleen

Well Trandoshans and Zabraks are already in the game. Many of the other ones you suggested will be NPCs.

07-03-2002, 03:46 PM
How can you people forget the wonderful, furry, fangy Shistavenans? I would love to play as one of them.

Kaminoans would be interesting too.

Legacy_Of_Sith
07-05-2002, 05:10 AM
Species I think SHOULDN'T be playable:

1. Jawas- They rarely leave tatooine.
2. Sandpeople/Tusken Raiders- ditto
3. Hutts- Too impractical
4. Chiss- Too obscure
5. Clawdite- Too unfair to other players.
