    @postlarval Are you offering it for free? :^)

    I find a new race highly improbable, given their lack of lore presence in sp titles (which take place in the future). There is a known fox race in blackmarsh.

    Knahaten flu killed almost every non argonians in Black Marsh, including Lilmothiits the humanoid foxes. They lived in southern part of Black Marsh. Maybe this is the race you looking for? But I still think that ESO already have too many not lore friendly things and last thing I want is tons of people playing as dead race... Just don't give ZOS silly ideas. :/

    Not hard to bring them from the grave my friend, for many a times a people are considered dead, but often times the world finds a remnant unbroken and thriving. Because the Lilmothiits are "scattered" it would make sense for them to find life in war or adventure, in hopes of earning a name for their kind.
    I would be on-board with them bringing back the Lilmothiits as a playable race. It's not hard to believe that some of them survived and that they aren't completely extinct. Although, I never play the beast races, though, so I don't really care, personally. I only play humans and elves. (Mostly humans.)

    If there will be tons of people playing this race, then how will you explain why this race don't appear in other TES games?

    Oh that's easy. We the customers must passionately push/demand for the race. Consistency and prolonged demanding. And I mean REAL pushes. Happens easily in business today(Earth).
    Because they(TESO) know people love something so much, it will be made.

    Because ESO is a prequel. Maybe the last of the Fox People were around during this time period, but in another 700 years, they're all extinct by then.
    LOL. This is all make-believe. Who cares if it's not the exact lore you've grown up with. Bethesda makes the lore. If they say it's so, then it's so.

    So to start, ALOT of people love wolves. I know people(including I) would love this... a wolf race! ZOS must add this! This would rival the khajiit race(cat/dog). Sure ZOS may say "there are werewolves", but hell it's limited and they look messed up. We need handsome anthropomorphic wolves! Not a hard thing to do! Customers like us must make the push!

    There are no intelligent Canine beast races in the Lore. Well, actually there technically are, the Lilmothiit, but they're Fox people and supposedly extinct because of the Knahaten Flu.

    Bretons represent western Europe during the middle ages and early renaissance. Reachmen represent Celts and Gaulic peoples. Nords the Norse peoples of northern Europe. Imperials the Mediterranian peoples under the influence of Rome. Redguards the Moors and other North African peoples. The Argonians the strange and mystical South American peoples. The bulk of the Mer representing the peoples of the far east.
    They don't represent those people. They just borrowed from the art/architecture/clothing of those groups to make the Elder Scrolls races. Subtle difference, but it's there all the same. Case in point: it might be insulting to South Americans for you to say that the lizard people "represent" them. No. Oh gosh no. However, Bethesda borrowed some elements of South American architecture and art to use for the Argonians.
    Yes, Redguard has an Arab influence seen in Daggerfall.
    I do not know any Argonain or Khaiit setting, they gave them an Mayan and south Asian architecture who works well in ESO.
    Only race setting I'm unhappy about is the Altmer.

    As for new races: Omes'rath or the catgirl like Khajiit in Daggerfall would be easy and made sense for an Elsweyr expansion.
    Not an race just another Khajiit type but would be treated as race in game mechanic.
    Maormer is another race, and yes its an actual race, Reachmen are Breton and not an real race but again game mechanics.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    This is as far as you'll get for a Canine Beast Race Lore-wise.

    Personally I want goblins. I mean... The little guys are basically LotR orcs who somehow got lost in Tamriel.


    They are even apparently big enough to wear normal armor, as their is a quest involving someone giving them elvish armor in exchange for their services.


    They would be pretty easy to excuse lore wise, but game wise... The biggest road block I guess would be just having to go back and rework dialogue to account for it. It's bad enough that next to no one notices you are a vampire. All the dirty goblin haters asking the great hero you to go and kill all the goblins could get... Uncomfortable.

    As much as I like werewolves, I do not want to see another half human, half animal hybrid monstrosity. No offense to khajiit, I just have never liked cats, and a cat race with breasts is just weird, no matter the lore. Same with argonians (like I'm pretty sure non-mammals don't even have breasts so wtf is going on here...)

    Yes and there is no link at all between Breton and British, Imperial's aren't Romans, Nords aren't Slavs because it's all veeeeery original.

    There was Lilmothiit but they died to Knahaten flu. http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Lilmothiit

    I would rather meet one or two Lilmothiit that survived Knahaten flu, in the same way as (TES3:Morrowind Spoiler)
    You meet Yagrum the last Dwemer in Morrowind
    Would be more cool to talk a species that is long extinct in the other games, but in ESO there could be still a few of them alive. But as a playable race? Let's wait for Akaviri and see what craziness is there, instead of forcing a new playable race out of nowhere.

    I would love to see a new race, however I need to stick with the people defending the lore.

    There are great races in the elder scrolls world, like the apes and sea elves (maormer) who are actually already in the game.

    @WalksonGraves This is already the case, unless you mean a military parade and in-costume at the same time. :p
