    Recon is the only major line the Kuriotates have that does not yet have its own artwork. Therefore it represents a great opportunity for this multiracial state to "bring another into the fold". But the obvious question is, what should this race be? Preferably they would be small and quick, ideal for scouting, and not be too much of a hassle to make (I'm thinking of the lamias here). What do YOU think?

    I could deinitely dig on letting them use rat or other vermin derived semi-humans. Could make for quite a few interesting abilities should the desire arise to make them non-standard in more than just the artwork :)

    Dryads make good sense to me. Militarily, I mean. No other considerations whatsoever, really. ;)

    I'd definitely like to see Dryads as a Druid UU (maybe like a normal druid but an elemental and no alignment restriction?), but am unsure about the other nymphs for recon. could be god though.

    Nymphs make pretty cool recon by their very nature (no pun intended), since there are a group for every feature of the land. If you want to know who travelled through a certain valley a few days ago, ask the valley's nymphs; or if you want to know who drank from a particular stream, ask the stream's nymphs. A mechanic where they were bound to a certain tile and couldn't go more than a few tiles away from it and maybe couldn't leave the terrain type they're associated with would be interesting. As would a mechanic with hamadryads being bound to forest tiles, which die if their forest is cut down.

    i would like nymphs to be the recon line, perhaps being tied to certain terrain types like Dharma said. and dryads as the druid replacement would be perfect in my books :)

    oh and please not rat people. i play Warhammer in there the rat people are evil chaotic enslaving chaos worshiping freaks of nature, and thus do not fit the kuriotates at all. its just silly :crazyeye:

    Well in real-world mythology lamias eat babies and centaurs are violent, drunken barbarians. The whole point of the kurios is that they acccept those that are met with violence in other lands :goodjob:

    Rat people are fairly uncommon, so my vote goes to them. Plus they'd make perfect sense for an empire notable for large cities.

    Do we have any human/cats? No, I'm not asking for FfH to include anime-catgirls or some similar thing, but some feline traits could be pretty useful for a scout.

    I think Oompa loompas should be the Kuriotate recon line.

    Toss in another vote for ratmen. It makes sense thematically, as already pointed out. Plus, if this thread is any indication, it would make more people refuse to play the Kuriotates and make them more inclined to wiping them out, which are always good things.

    It would be cool with a hobbit as a scout.

    Yeah, a blend of hobbit and skaven is sort of what I had in mind (though skaven themselves didn't occur to me till Psychic_Llamas pointed them out), with a little more hobbit than skaven ;)

    The former sounds chillingly terrifying.
