As much in the D&D Universe has and is changing, and we now have 5th edition and the Forgotten Realms being the core of the D&D Universe, the poll options have been updated to reflect current core source material for D&D Next, a.k.a. "5th Edition."
The following are 5th edition races that do not yet exist as player races in Neverwinter but do exist as core playable races in 5th edition source material. While this list is not necessarily a complete list, it holds true to the core races that hold the most likelihood to be seen translated into Neverwinter. If your most desired race isn't on this list, please choose one from this list that you'd like to see the most or select "Something else.." and then let us know your other race wish in the comments below.
This thread and "The "New Class(es)" Feedback Thread" are each respectively recreated when a new Race or Class is added to the game. Creating additional threads on New Classes and Races will summarily be closed. Please use these threads to discuss and purvey your feedback on New Classes and Races not yet in the game.
Disclaimer: This is by no means meant to be any sort of confirmation or sign for what is in store next for Neverwinter. Furthermore, this poll isn't on classical races, it is based off of 5th Edition core rules. I was specifically asked to stick with 5th edition in this and the class poll as Wizards of the Coast (and notable authors) have been taking a more hands-on role with Neverwinter.
Choose wisely. Now discuss your choice here, should you so choose.
