Talk:Races

From Pillars of Eternity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In regards to having each subrace just be linked to the race page (i.e. Death Godlike → Godlike#Death), I would like to propose that we have each subrace be its own page. The subraces are pretty distinct, in both appearance and mechanics. We easily have enough content to fill each page without clogging up the main page. Aqua (talk) 17:46, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Background[edit source]

Beside the dry summary of playable races, I'd like to have some background on Eora races origins etc. if you encounter any tidbits, please add them. Also Kith races? are all playable races are considered civilized(Kith_ ? do we have none kith races? what about dragons and their little caretakers would they be considered a race? --AnotherArk (talk) 10:45, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Ethnic or Subrace?[edit source]

iirc through out development the term 'Ethnic' was primary used to refer to various racial subdivisions (like pale\wood elves), so far it appears to be the same in the guidebook. However, I just noticed that in-game, the term 'subraces' is used instead. For the sake of consistency (and maybe avoiding confusion) any preference on which should be used here? --AnotherArk (talk) 10:27, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

In my opinion we should use 'subraces', ethnicity is a social construct. Two people having similar physical features doesn't automatically equate to them belonging to the same ethnic group.--Lychnidos (talk) 01:31, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
