    I voted for Kodan, Largos, and Tengu.

    First and foremost I want Tengu. I want to see the Dominion of the Winds. The others are just natural choices.

    Skritt seem like a terrible idea, with their lore, but I always see them pop up as choices.

    There is like... one dwarf left. I don't think dwarfs would be playable unless Anet come up with some cheesy explanation.

    I voted for Kodan because they are adorable.

    Mursaat & Largos Although I dont know if Mursaat is possible lorewise.

    Well I will admit I'm sidestepping a bit of lore difficulties on some of the options
    And Skritt is there cause it keeps popping up, personally I wouldnt want Skritt.
    I think my own order would be
    Kodan
    Largos
    Tengu
    Mursaat

    But mostly Kodan, partially badassness (thats a word right?) and partially cause I want another Heavy armor profession, and heavy would look very nice on kodan i think ^^
    And ofc we dont want no "sissy bear race", so Kodan are awesome as a choice

    Problematically we have a fairly wide selection of "beast races", and a few "near humans", none of which are astoundingly creative options.

    Personally, I'd rather see the Krait or Centaurs as playable.

    Skritt are also incredibly adorable, but I don't think they'd function well as a playable race.

    I can imagine how annoying it would be with less than skilled RPers really hamming it up with the speech patterns most skritt display. Not saying RP is bad, particularly people who actualy get into character. However I can picture far to many that would use it as little more than a thin justification for acting like a total spaz. Funny once or twice but tedious in large dosages.

    Skritt http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Skritt
    Kodan and Tengu.

    Mursaat is impossible more or less, cause well they be "ebil", no really..they be Ebil.
    Dwarf's=more or less extinct, they were more or less extinct in Guild wars one and honestly going by the lore? yeh i think we won't see any dwarfs with out a VERY cheesy explanation.

    I voted for Kodan personally because I just love them and they look amazing. I'm not sure if we will see them as a playable race sadly, but I still like em!

    I suppose we could throw harpies in there as possible playable races.

    Mursaat and Largos are the only ones I would even consider. Not too hot for the game as a whole atm though.
