Daedra as a playable race?

So now that we're 'besties' with the Daedra, are our illustrious overlords going to implement Daedra as a playable race? And would you create one or race-change an existing character to play as one?

    Well all the humanoid daedra in fargrave got updated models, and you can see customisation has been added in regards to face shape, size and accessories such as horns. Like we have with the playable races. So it wouldn’t be that far fetched in the future to have them added to playable races. As the vestige we are not really fully mortal. But like @VaranisArano said some of the dialect in game would be a contradiction. We will see.

    It'd be a bit awkward, seeing as how there's a number of quests that rely on you not being a daedra in order to pass through the daedra-blocking wards.

    Like, Lyranth is pretty clear in several quests over the last year that you are basically a useful pair of hands doing something she can't.

    This is a good point.

    They have broken stories before, so I doubt that would hold them back. After all, there are some stories that depend upon not having a soul, which can now be done before your soul is removed. They made some major story mistakes along the way. Hopefully, they learned something that they can take forward to their next game.

    Dremora and Xiviali are sadly to cool looking to be playable races

    If you just want the look, there's some nice Xivkyn polymorphs from the Imperial City content that can sometimes by bought from Guild traders.

    I doubt they would do this since we have a few different Xivkyn polymorphs(ICS, VMA).

    The fact that the Player Character is a mortal is taken as read throughout the existing content. All of it. It is also the main topic of nearly every conversation we have with daedra in Fargrave. To an RP player like me this would be game breaking.

    I have at least three characters I would race change in a heartbeat to Daedra if it were an option. I am a self-professed appearance aficionado. I stare at these characters for hours upon hours and I want them to look visually appealing all of the time. The issue with the polymorphs is that you have no control over the overall appearance of the character. If Daedra were a race, I'm sure you would have control over appearance options like horns and skin color, not to mention you could dress them however you wish.

    Yeah, and as daedra everytime we wipe we'd have to go to back to the azure plasm ^^; But as others mentioned, we have the polyomorphs, if anyone wants to RP at least.

    I agree for it. I think there should be besides the alliances to have the non alliance part playing with. Daedric, Goblins, etc

    A lot of us already have that problem when playing with Vampires, there are numerous Daedra in Fargrave who claim that the player character has a short lifespan even if your a Vampire, not only can a Vampiric Vestige live forever but they can revive whenever they are destroyed and much quicker then a Daedra can, how exactly are we "mortal"?

    The definition of "mortal" in TES is different to that used in real life. There is an extra meaning to the word in TES. It's not just a matter of being subject to death.

    To put it briefly, in TES mortals are spirits that are subject to Lorkhan's test. Many daedra know that, including Princes and dremora. Many mortals do not know, or do not accept that they are subject to Lorkhan's test (but such ignorance is part of the mortal condition).

    Vampires are "mortals" in that they are still subject to Lorkhan's test. Vampirism can be cured. From a dremora's point of view Vampirism is a temporary condition, as is being a mortal spirit. Both states have an end. Dremora do not see themselves as having an end.
