My vote should come as no surprise.

Poor ailen beasts. Someone should help them out.

The vahnatai are the only race in Exile that is original. They get my vote.

But if they're ailin', shouldn't someone call a doctor or something?

Okay, I admit it was a bad joke. But that typo was just asking for it.

The vahnatai are the most evolved race here. They are also very strong in magic. I like their clothes and names. (and they are the only damned race that IS original and a bit different from the other species, although they still ARE humanoid)

The vahnatai may be powerful at magic in general, but none of them come even close to defeating the most powerful human mages. Even Erika would've bested Rentar had it not been for the curse...

Golems. Because they have shiny stuff.

Unfortunately, my favorite, the slimes, is not on the poll. They're just so colorful and silly. I mean, what's with those slimes that are trying to look like people? It's obviously not going to work. Oh, those crazy slimes...

Vahnatai, otherwise I would have chosen a different moniker :P

EDIT: Oh yeah, one time when I played Exile 3, Rentar actually managed to kill Erika by physical attack.

I now get to air a pet peeve by asking what you mean by "most evolved." Everything has been evolving for just as long as everything else, so everything is the most evolved. Unless, of course, you subscribe to vahnatai creatonism.

—Alorael, who could see "most evolved" as "most adapted," except it isn't clear at all that the vahnatai are better matches for their environment than the sliths. The nephilim and humans, of course, are far better adapted to the surface, which is where they live.

What exactly are slimes made of? I was going to say skribbane gluitite. Could be something else, though.

I'd probably say alien beasts, because their kind of damage isn't resisted very easily by most magical monsters. But there'd need to be a lot of them to do away with Rentar-Ihrno.

They are made of slime, ben.

My vote goes to the sliths, although they are not my favorite. Nothing beats the old hostile cave cows!

I like to believe that the slimes are a very large, somewhat mutated form of slime mold, a real Earth organism that nobody is really sure which kingdom it belongs to. Some say it's an animal because it moves and attacks things. Some say it's a fungus because it reproduces through spore-producing stalks. Some even say it's a very large protist. Slime molds are awesome, and so are slimes.

The vahnatai and humans would easily be able to overcome the golems. Unless they suddenly developed their own intelligence...

No, the point of golems is that they have this set of instructions that they have to follow to the letter. Very inflexible. Considering intelligence is only displayed by making choices and showing off, it's hard for a golem to be smart and inflexible. (And being able to handle complex situations would un-golem it anyway.)

I meant in the way of some sort of advanced computer core. Like the Mind Crystal in Exile III. If the controller of the golems was intelligent enough then it would certainly stand to rival the Vahnatai and Humans.

On second though, if slimes were made of a skribbane compound, the Krizsanites would not want to get rid of them.

Say arsenic gluitite. It's a type of slime.

I thought the slimes were very interesting, I just with their difficulty was significantly harder as the idea behind them was excellent, especially if a much more powerful alien slime was created.

I found the use of the word "best" confusing in the wording of this poll. Best what? Best fighters? Best friends? Best dressed?

Arbitrary values aside, the vahnatai are the most interesting. And they like shiny things so they can't be too bad.
