You Can Tell Solely by the Title that A lot of People Are Going to Agree with me Here.


I Would Like to Call for a Comepletely Revamp of the Neko Race.


There is Just So Many Things Wrong with the Current Nekos. They're just So...Out of Place. You got all These Powerful Races, Many from Old Real world Myths. And then, You Got These "Cat People" That Looked like they were Taken out of some Terrible Anime. I Would Propose Doing ACTUAL Cat People, (I.E. Caitians, Kha'Jit, Ferasans, Etc.) Bipedal Felines, With Fur, Tail, And Everything, Along With a More Appropriate Backstory. Maybe Tribal Hunters, And Some who Joined Society. Now THAT Seems More Fitting for This Server. I Belive More People, Including Older Players, Will Accept This, And Play it More. I know I Would. I would Also Recommend Changing the Name Aswell, So it Doesn't Sound so Anime-ish. People who Play the Current Nekos Still can, Though they Just wouldn't be an "Official Race."


This is Just My Suggestion Though. And If Your Already working on something Like this in the New Lore, Thank You. And Thank you For your Time. Q'apla!

Well, I’ve done my research, and it turns out Nekoes were ripped completely and utterly from Anime culture. Neko means Cat in Japanese as well I believe.

Look, what I’m trying to say, is that Nekos are from Anime. End of story. I think what the staff are going to address, is that Nekos are nothing but the Nekos from anime. They have no story, no lore, and no distinctions between those of common media.

While I do hope that we replace Nekos with a Kha-esc race, I fear this is not the case. I am assuming we will see a heavily revamped Neko, with actual lore, backstory, and description. The real problem that I still am afraid of, is the player-base. Elysium does a generally good job with making lores that make sense, and are creative, but the one problem is that many players are just like “Ooh, let’s completely ignore this and make our own thing, which we think is 10 times better, but is really just a compilation of what our hormones want, how we want to be an anime superhero, how we lack creativity, and how we want to be powerful, and ends up being so much worse, but we completely neglect that!”

Point is, while many of us want a Kha-esc race, I think that Nekos will not be turned into that. If they are, than it’ll be absolutely spectacular, but many players will still ignore the lore, bsimply because they want to be special.

This is why when i want good lore/roleplay i go to D&D nights at the comic asylum. I'm sure that alot of the problems with races in Elysium, is that they're outdated and the amount of custom lore being added is just making the old races stand out, i guess that'd be why everyone keeps making weirder stronger versions of the old races.

This has literally already been done and has been for a long time. The lore just isn't posted yet. The new name is Dei'mea. They have backstory, history, culture, etc.

The Lore Team is not lazy.
It disbanded a while back due to the factor that the head of lore (BlindElf) was somewhat inactive and so it spiralled downhill, til this day where it doesn't even exist anymore.

Aight girls, stop moping. My suggestion is, since the lore team is dead, we have, perhaps, a neighborhood-watch sort of lore team. Well, at least, until Sammo can get the lore team back together. What I mean by that is, we start taking notes as to what we notice about the base races and how they're used, and report back to someone in charge of the whole operation. Then, we set up a document and decide if there really needs to be a change to that behaviour.

Until then, can someone link the new 'Neko' lore? Perhaps with Sarah's idea of getting a wiki moderation team together, hopefully we can start implementing new/better lore for the server. Especially some more creative races other than the token 'elf' or 'werewolf.'
Hint hint, lore team, hit me up about the avos :>

But, back to what I was saying. Perhaps with the accompaniment of regular players to the wiki/lore teams, there can be some input on what would best entertain the community.

I agree with This Notion. Though we Gotta ask Sammo before we Start Throwing our Ideas Together.



Otherwise, I Like this Idea.

Now this is some impressive leadership that I’d be happy to work under. About time we had somebody taking charge instead of idealistic complaining (I myself am included in that).

I’ll be making sure to keep notes, and post them once I’ve gathered sufficient data. I would prefer it as well if there were other players doing the same thing, so we can compare and contrast notes we’ve taken, and possibly develop a pattern to this thing, so we can see what should/shouldn’t be looked at.

Seriously? I want to see this new race. Do you know where and how I can access it? I want the owners and lore team to actually be active for once...this server is a big fragile piece of glass...

Alrighty. Taken into account ^_^.

Frankly, I don't think we can completely stop people who want to be humans with cat ears, though we can at least work away from the 'nya' roleplay in dedicated areas.

Moving towards full cat-like humanoids is a nice direction for it, and eases up some lore stuff as we don't need to say 'first there were humans and cats, then there were cat people wink wink', and go for a more magical evolution type deal.

I will say, any lore you may have seen is very much subject to change. Quite a lot of it is floating around, but there are still things to change. For example, Dark Elves are described as basically inherently evil, which they aren't. Keep a lookout anyhow, and posts like this are SUPER helpful, thank you :)
