We know they are going to keep the old core races. But do you think they will add any new races or how they will change the old ones mechanics wise?
I think ether the halfling or gnome will be gone, and the kobold will replace one of them.
I had a post that was sort of about this awhile ago-- the reference to 4E was just to help conceptualize, but the basic concept was trying to decide which races have traction and which don't. That in turn, would then progress towards which races were likely to show up in 4th edition.Races with Traction (4th Edition and Beyond?)
There was actually a lot of good discussion on the question and I thought it brought up some interesting points on what makes a race attractive to players.
ive been playing them almost specifically the last few months.
Half-Elves may get extra skill points in place of skill bonuses, to make them a more attractive choice. Maybe a feat instead.
Half-Orcs will probably get balanced-out stats. Maybe +2 con to counteract both mental penalties.
