This is been bugging me, but I can't think of ONE good reason I can't be a zombie kittymorph, or a Joker Gobot.
Is this ever benn considered/Planed to be a feature?

First off, just RP it that way.
There were plenty of kittymorph Jokers, or Jokermorphs, in season one.

When I get to robots, I'm going to be a kittybot for sure.


Secondly, Dan hinted at Jokers being more of a template than an actual race... in season three. Which is at least a year away. So you could be a Joker + Robot, or Joker + Zombie, or whathaveyou. Subject to Change.

As Symar says, be whatever you like. I'm a werewolf, Gompmire was a doggymorph, Chimental's a big lizard and there's lots of Jokermorphs out there. Just say the words...

Oi! Don't be fergettin' 'bout me!

In other words, yes you can only be one solid race for battling (Imaging how hard it would be to balance something like a zombie kittymorph in battle. Any bonuses you get from being cute are nullified from being a zombie and vice versa), but for roleplaying you can be whatever you want. If you're so inclined, turn off the display of your race and weapon in the preferences section and just start roleplaying as whatever you wish.

Tshshh, Sink -- don't let Chimental hear you. He's not just a big lizard, he is a lizard who has been transmutated by one of S1-Dan's potions such that he is a humanoid with great big leathery wings who was transmutated by the Improbability Drive beforehand and leads a mass of monsters who are currently incognito and oh no what will happen when the potion wears off. Wink

Just teasing, I'm the one who plays someone who used to be one of Pavlov's dogs and is now rather more the coyote.

But, yeah -- as Fergus points out, you'd get buff cancellation and.. there's a good reason that it isn't currently in that it would be tedious to code and balance all the combinations, and.. there are more important things to tackle right now. Maybe somewhere down the line.

First of all, Zolo, that was the best description I've heard of me yet.

Second of all, I think it would be strange to see a mutant/kittymorph or a joker/zombie or even making a
joker/kittymorph/zombie/midget.

I felt a shiver go up my spine just typing that.


I make the many models of a mutant individual. To make them I use vegetables, animals, and minerals. From robot bugs to zombie bears to many singing barnacles.

UB is currently a Mexican Midget Wrestler. I'm actually role-playing this character. It isn't a race, believe it or not!

If kittymorph and zombie bonuses all cancel each other out, is this where human beings came from? Eek!

For S3 we'll likely re-do Races altogether, in a manner something like the Stamina system - so you could be 20% Joker, 60% KittyMorph, 20% Zombie and so on and so forth, likely with some races being mutually exclusive. A lot of things are going to change in S3, but I'm not gonna worry about that for a long time yet. We've got plenty to be getting on with in S2 for now. Smile

Wait, so you could be a midget kittymorph? No matter how emasculating this would sound-

"Awwwwwwwwwwwwww."

Just like big budget MMO games!
They're in planning to change and upgrade things before said things have even made it out the door to the players yet.

It gets confusing sometimes, as a beta tester.

This topic has been troubling me ever since I read it, and my fears finally crystalized.

Wouldn't a Midget/Kittymorph crossbreed be an Ewok? I.e., cute and cuddly mean motherfuckers. Do you people realize the danger? Have you not heard of Ewok rape? IS THIS NOT ENOUGH TO SHOW THAT THE RACES MUST NOT INTERBREED?

EDIT: I just had an even worse thought. A Mutant crossed with a Kittymorph, and then hit in the head to many times (or fed a steady diet of paint chips) could produce . . . . Jar Jar Binks. This is too awful to contemplate, so I'll just end it here, other to remind you all of how many lives and formerly happy childhoods were ruined by The Phantom Menace.

oh dear god....I suddenly dread the RPing results of a system like you described CMJ...hmm...wait a moment...Mutant/Robot... Someone could become Marvin from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Great Xane, just what we needed, another reference Wink


Some people see the glass as half full, some people see it as half empty, I just spit in the cup until it isn't a problem anymore.

:attacks Xane's another Hitchhikers reference out of reflex:

I think a mutant zombie would have to be one of the most noisome things in the game....
