hope they are added soon but yeah, I understand that there are some issues and features that have to be fixed first.

Also I was thinking about something:

Humans/siege machinery/horses
Elves/living plants/spirits/unicorns
Orcs/goblins/ogres/siege machinery/wargs
Dwarves/steam machinery/Halfling/gnomes/golems
Lizardmen/Dinosaurs/dragons/hydra/kobolds
Undead/skeletons/vampires/zombies
Beastmen/werewolves/lycans/minotaur/Saytrs/Centaurs/Harpies/Gorgons/other mutants

That makes a total of 7 races. I remember that in the scenario editor there is Gaia, and then 1-8 possible players. so I think it would be interesting if every player could play with a different race in a match, but for that another additional race would be needed, so the question is, which race you would add to the list?

At first I thought about the giants, but I see some problems with them, first its dimensions, the weapons they would use etc... I decided to discard them.

Then I considered tritons, a kind oh humanoid amphibious creature, but the problem is that these things live on the ocean, in a underwater city like atlantis. So well I decided to discard them too (although it would be interesting to see them, at least as npc's, or maybe living in islands).

so I came up with another thing, very uncommon in fantasy: insects. I know, they are senn in many scfi as monsters or aliens, but they are very uncommon in fantasy settings.

Imagine some kind of mantis:

or ants, leaded by a queen/king (Your hero)

I think it would be interesting, maybe the insectoid men and the lizardmen could have been enemies for a long time in a yet to discover land found at the other side of the great sea. (when naval battles are released I would like to see the ''great sea'' as a possible battleground between continents).

This is the actual world map:

where lizardmen land and other races land could be located:
