    The more I think about it the more I think i might make them my main if they do turn out to be the Koala/gremlin/squirrel race. Mechari might be a close 2nd though

    This has been my assumption about the final Dominion race too. I'm assuming what they meant by genderless is that you will not choose male or female and that the race won't display any secondary sex characteristics. It fits for a tiny race of made scientists to be the genderless ones they were talking about. I would honestly rather have gender for the race if that is the case. I guess I would rather see something like with the Asura, who barely have a physical difference between the genders. I hope I am wrong, but it seems to me like the race which doesn't work for big powerful males and sexy hourglass females is just going to be genderless, which I personally am less excited about. I prefer when there is creativity with the secondary sex characteristics of fantasy/sci-fi races instead of just sticking human ones on all of them.

    I must say i disagree with the little gremlins being genderless, just my opinion of course but i think they will have genders and i only say this of course because at the moment in my opinion the 4th unrevealed exile races looks the most likely to be ungendered, but time will tell :p

    I don't think there is going to be a genderless race anymore. I feel like originally it was mechari they were talking about, but when people didn't seem to like that they added females, and because of the fact that they are robots. They are still technically "genderless" at least that's what I hope. I really hate when races have one gender like half the races in TERA. In fact I'm pretty sure EVERYONE hates when a race only has one gender, and considering how smart Carbine has been about everything I'm hoping they don't make a stupid decision about this.

    Mechari only have gender models to make less enlightened carbon-based lifeforms comfortable around them. A very useful ruse.

    I think exactly the same and also i'm hoping they don't make 1 of the last races genderless, it would frustrate me alot! But seeing how carbine did so far i think they will also see this.

    Having extreme high hopes of carbine here!

    I think that the addition to a little scientist race would fit perfectly in the Dominion whether they are all brains no brawn or if they have a small man complex where they have to always show how strong and dominant they are! So excited to see the outcome.

    I think it could be hard to make different genders for the 4th dominion race.
    Not easy to achieve that on small furry mouse creatures. Doubt people would be happy if the only difference between males and femals is a red dress with white spots on it. ;)
    In that case I'm sure everyone would prefer them genderless.

    Yeah if I had to choose, I would prefer the Koalas have males and females. I think the genderless comment was referring to the Mechari, maybe the term was just misused a bit. :)

    If they are still going with a genderless race I think it could work with the 4th dominion race. I don't see them being genderless lore wise, they just don't have any visible sexual dimorphism. So instead of picking male or female at char creation you have more options like hair styles and eyes that appear more masculine or feminine. They still have males and females they just look very similar. And if they go with this option they'd be the only race with an 'androgynous look available.

    This is how I picture it working. Although I am really hoping that the 4th exile race is far enough removed from human that they can be genderless.

    I would probably like to see little female mogwai/Bartok/Brain/Shifu's, for sure. Not sure if there will be a "genderless" race, and it's true we haven't seen any obvious female versions of these guys... but I'd like to!

    I also think they should travel by rolling into little furballs by tucking their heads between their legs and zooming along the ground. Sort of like... fury banelings. >.>

    Ahh! Yes! :D XD That'd be adorable! I used to own pet rats (Yes, people! Feel free to freak out all you like, but only after you educate yourself and look into them some more haha :p), and when they slept, sometimes they would curl up into a ball, and oh, it was cute. Here's a picture I took once of my baby boy, Sky in his "ball form," we called it:

    His nickname was Skyball. :laugh: Ah... I miss him. :cry:

    Anyway. Mochi, anyone?

    No freak outs here, I've heard rats make awesome pets. Plus, I think they are pretty cute personally!

    Skyball was adorable. :)

    I'm crazy afraid of rats, but I lived close to NY for all my life so come on, that's understandable what with the Urban Legends you hear about New York rats.

    Ender keeps trying to reeducate me on the subject since she owned her own pet rats, but some days I worry she fights a losing battle. Skyball looks pretty cute, though.

    ... But I bet that's just how they GET you!

    Bwa hahahaha!

    But if we put them in some of the space suit gear we've seen, they might turn into this...
