Hello,

In the new products, I'd like it to include the
long-waited dream - Vahnatai as a player race.
Since we've had friendship with Bon-Ihrno, and
Bohen-Ihrno upon finding Defiled Crypt, there
should still be a lasting bit of friendship between
humans and Vahnatais even after Ex3 and Av3.
So it should be possible for the remaining of their
students to join in human parties.

Remember that Sliths and Nephilims were just
hostile, so we could choose only humans in Ex1 and
Av1. They joined with humans since Ex2, and this
time, Vahnatais.

The Vahnatai character may work with humans as a
remaining student of Bon-Ihrno, and s/he may seek
to weive the shame of his/her master as a traitor
among the race. So s/he seeks to prove in front of
Rentar-Ihrno that the decisions of Bon-Ihrno was
right for the race. Perhaps Renter may agree with
him/her for that point in the end.

Some of the suggested ajustment for Vahnatais are
+1 DEX and INT as well as Magical Apptitude.
His/her favorite weapons are wave blades and
razordisks. S/he may gain Vahnatai titles such as
-te, -bok, and even -Ihrno upon reaching for
sufficient character and mage levels and completing
certain numbers of quests. S/he may also gain some
bonust with utilizing magical devices, especially
crystals.

I wish It would happen. But it probably won't. It would require a large add on to the engine, and would require hours of balancing it out. And BTW, Bok is a higher rank than Ihrno. :P

No, no. Change this to:

That's just too bad.

There have been threads about this before. Most of them have been locked.

I wish it would happen but.... it won't. Also I don't think they should get +1 DEX. They are a mage race, not exactly great users of weapons. Maybe a +2 INT would be better.

Wrong. They're very strong and nimble. Vahnatai warriors are among the best warriors in all the exile/avernum games (excluding 1)

Let's face it, folks: They would get a huge bonus to everything, and probably a 20% or so baseline in all resistances. This is precisely why they are NOT a playable race-that is, unless you can take the 256% xp penalty. :P
