What fantasy creature would you be given the chance ?

You will have to live in the world were it comes from and deal with the society it resides in.

I'm too much of a lazy fuck to be a dwarf, plus I dislike smelly people and it's rare for me to drink. I do like my awesome beard.

As an elf, I would get to see them pretty ladies, I would live in the woods, which is nice and would live for a fucking long time. Would lose my awesome beard, though. But sacrifices have to be made.

I really wouldn't see myself as any other fantasy creature.

That's anyone guess, I suppose. He speaks to him at the end of the Waterdeep novel. I don't have it in English, but he's basically asking "So Ao, how's your cosmos going?"
"They have restored the Balance, Master. The Realms are saved."

My personal theory is that there would one God above it all and the pantheons would actually be petty powers compared to the Creator. The kind of thing they'll never actually mention, and I'm surprised they would even imply such a thing.

They can't mount up, they're pretty large so they can't really fit through doorways, they'd be SO easy to target in PvP it wouldn't be fair, and armor wouldn't work well with them (pants would plate their legs, but compared to the more simple bipedal models it would require as much effort for one race as all the others would).

Metzen wanted Azjol Nerub to be the largest (entirely underground) zone in NR with quest lines to defeat the Scourge, befriend the living Nerubians, and destroy the corrupt old god serving Viziers and establish the beginnings of Nerubian Light worship.

But the plan would have pushed back the release date by a few months, so they used the Tuskaar as the native to befriend and kept Killix the Unwraveller there just because of what could have been.
They even shortened the instance...originally it was like Dire Maul+BRD.

I find myself using the goblins, trolls, and the orcs (although I keep them all setting related) because it gives me the option of more than just periodic human/elf/dwarf towns and goblin gold lust is easy to work with.

I heard about alot of the Nerubian stuff that got cut out and, it really saddened me to hear it. Hell, I'd be happy if they just got more appearances and such. They dont need to be playable.

Seems Metzen really likes them, he wrote a huge amount of lore for them that never ends up getting used.

They keep getting retconned too, they went from Drow made of real spiders to aliens to Cthulu worshipping zerg to stoic bros to Jews to what they are now, which is basically guerrilla fighters who number less than a few hundred and are too scattered to organize.

Even Anu'Barak was going to be a big figure in WOLK, but his roles basically went to Lich king appearances during quest chains-just about any time you see Vrykul was going to be undead Nerubians, just about any time you see some random ass lich was going to be Kel'Thuzas back and taking matters into his own hands.

They simplified it to make the Lich King the entire focus of the expansion (other than the old gods, which are being built to be ever present in every expansion from now on).
