I’m surprised nobody suggests a variant human (Canthan, etc.), possibly with a new profession. The advantage would be obvious – all existing human armor already works.
That would be just about the most anti-climactic thing ever.
Hey guys, we’re adding a brand new playable race to the game! Ooh, ahh. What could it be? Excited yet? We’re proud to announce…. drumroll
HUMANS WITH SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FACES AND A DIFFERENT SKIN COLOR! That’s right, humans! No, you’re not imagining things, we’re going completely crazy adding something to revolutionary as HUMANS! What’s that, you can already make humans with different faces and varying skin tones? Nah, these humans have slanted eyes and a choice of skin tones that’s 2 shades off of what the normal humans have! Yes, you heard right, we went the extra distance with skin tones, its not just 1 shade but 2 shades difference!
