Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this post. I decided to be safe and post it here as I was not entirely certain if it should go in setting development or elsewhere. Thank you again for taking a look at this thread. So I need some help coming up with additional races for my current project. I also need some advice about whether to include or remove one. I'm looking to have at least six or seven total. So far I have the following: Humans Felsing Lionmen aka Hvet Aniconarada aka snakemen Felineans aka cat people Now my conflict race/not sure what to do with it race are my Felineans. They're your generic Japanese animation cat people. The only thing I really did was make them a tad more feline by removing human ears then increased their nail's length and durability. Except I just don't know what to do with them. I feel like I'm infringing/repeating a race the more I look at them. It was one of those "Sure why not?" moments that led me to toss them in as a race in the first place. The idea was to have them and Lionmen as the former dominant races of the world. Significant racial disputes (Lionmen are kind of pricks in my story) led to a vast destructive war which led to near genocide on both sides. This also led to their downfall as the "dominant" races of the world. Lionmen went back to a nomadic tribal society (in present day they are no longer nomadic) while the Felineans became reclusive jungle dwellers. A thousand years later with the rise of Humanity Felineans have mostly incorporated into society. Lionmen still bear the whole "Thou art better" mentality though a few wander out of their tribal home to see the world outside. As for their numbers Felineans barely exceed two million where as Lionmen barely exceed ninety thousand. Presently Lionmen reside in a sovereign city-state divided among over eighty tribes. Note: Neither population dipped below fifty thousand. Loss of knowledge and post war conflicts/hardships kept populations from booming as well as societal shifts. Anyway guys, that's what I have where these two are concerned. I hope that's enough for some critical analysis. I mean I LIKE the idea except I still feel like I'm majorly infringing like I mentioned earlier. I look very forward to your thoughts on these matters.
