I'm still new here and don't know much about the character mechanics, but apart from the cosmetic differences and class restrictions, how are the races different? Do they have stat bonuses/penalties? Unique story lines? Also do you think down the line (months/years) from now there could be cross-factional races? For instance a Mechari breaking his programming and joining the Exiles because he thinks they have a better chance at finding the Elders with them, or a Granok feeling betrayed by his Free Company hooks up with the Dominion.
