That's right! All of you must have known immediately after seeing the title it was gonna be me asking for this. First, I wanna thank those who are gonna take the time to read this. Second, forgive my poor grammar as I'm not an expert by any means in such.
(Note: Had no clue where to place this thread)
TLDR: Bushraki have tons of lore, aren't better than other races, let's make it a playable race.Bushraki can and should be a playable race and here's why.
When I first saw Starmourn in development the Bushraki really caught my eyes as the roleplay and deep background provided via lore was amazing. Later when the Beta first started I found out that Bushraki weren't playable and the reasoning stated was that they'd have racial advantages over the other races. No clue if this is true as it was stated by players OOC but I wanna clear some things up.
All the lore can be found here: https://wiki.starmourn.com/Bushraki
The Bushraki were considered powerful due to the wetwiring systems that they had which gave an immense advantage to those who did not have them. At one period of time, they possessed both wetwiring and mindsims when no one else did. This gave them the ability to store medicine in their bodies to heal themselves and the ability to process information better than any other race. After they betrayed the Ishvana though the technology of wetwiring and mindsims were spread across the Starmourn galaxy thus eliminating any advantages they previously had besides cybernetics. That means every spacer/player has that same advantage the Bushraki has.
Cybernetics - Bushraki artifacts do exist now and I know I'm assuming this but the reason you can wear them without your body rejecting such modifications is because your wetwiring system and any race can have them (Correct me if I'm wrong please) . You could say that bushraki would start off with cybernetics but they wouldn't be artifact tiered limbs and such. For one I presume almost all artifacts are Ishvana technology and enhancements so the bushraki artifacts are Ishvana technology. Meaning most regular Bushraki probably has regular old limb parts built with simple cybernetics.
H.E.T.E Cloning and Body - Some folks might ask well if you die don't you have to be cloned? I'm sure H.E.T.E could grow your body with a few missing limbs and attack tech onto it. I currently own bushraki legs and they attach them onto me no problem after I die. A few flavor lines here and there would suffice.
Roleplay - Some folks might see the Bushraki as raving lunatics that can't be trusted but the roleplay it can provide is immense. Previously, they had a culture that created or appreciated art, literature, music, and vigorous sports before they were invaded and brutally experimented on by a higher technological species. Aye, they kinda went coo coo for coco puffs for awhile but they had a good reason to be upset! After awhile they even turned their back against the Ishvana and helped fight them off. Currently, they reside in Oldtown, New Dakimazi, and pirate across space. Meaning you could roleplay as a Bushraki who wants to recover their previous culture, a hate filled warrior against the Ishvana/Sa'hak-ren, pirate, druggie, or whatever else you wanted to be.
The Bushraki have a very deep lore that has been explored very thoroughly and I believe that making them a playable race adds lots of roleplay opportunities. Though some people may view them with disdain, I believe that players should be given a chance to lead this race out of it's sad past and make history in Starmourn.
Thanks for reading everyone!
