    Just for fun.. New Race from another game..

    The title may be a bit confusing, but the point of this thread is this: Just for fun, if you could add a race into wow from another game franchise or universe or whatever, completely discounting lore (Hell, if you want to throw in some lore yourself, be my guest), which race would you add?

    My first choice would be the Frogloks from the Everquest universe. I don't know how they'd fit in... and maybe there are too many small races in wow as it is, but I've always loved the Froloks movements and looks and would roll one in an instant were they introduced. Froglok Pally, ftw.

    My second choice would be the Dragonborn race from Dungeons and Dragons. Another nobleish race like the Frogloks (based on their original lore) just with alot more height and strength. I would imagine you could get some kickass racials with these guys, too. Something involving dragon breath of course....

    Any other ideas?

    I'll vote what this guy took as well. Lore can be easy. Nordrassil is alive, and seeing the struggle against the Legion, it started birthing a new race to help us.
