[sblock=Rich Baker]Yes, there's another PC race fleshed-out in the FRPG. It'll have drow and Race X with full PH-style writeups.

Didn't they say gnomes aren't popping in full 'till 09?

Possibly Aasimar, but they surprised me a little with Dragonborn, so I'm looking forward to the surprises they might have in store for FR.

In another scoop The Baker talks about a DDI writeup for Half-Orcs and mentions that they play an important part in the realms and won't be forgotten. Mystery Race X for the Realms maybe? I can't see something that important just on the DDI and not on paper (Or the DDI is allot more core and necessary than they keep saying) and the FRCS would be a good place to put it.

As much as I would love to see Saurials with a full write-up, I know that they will not be the mystery race.

I'm going to guess avarial.

I think Orc or an outside shot of Shadovar.

The new Drizzt novel seems to point to orcs being more playable, at least in the Silver Marches.

Think avarial and aquatic elves are out based on that "marginal races" post a while back. Guess that also mean we will not see any Loxo ;)

We know from R&C that 4thed will be aas free.

4thed will have celestials as the "light-side counterpart" to tieflings. "You'll meet a race of celestials who have plunged through the transforming fires as the tiefling".

So I call it thus: celestials will be the new PC race in the 4th ed FRPG.

My hopes are either for Genasi (for their PS potential ;) ) or Orcs (a playable orc race would be great, I loved Orkworld by John Wick :) )

Are there any groups in the Realms that would be likely to make a wholesale pact with upper planar beings? One of the FR analogues to ancient Egypt, Babylon and the like, perhaps?

I think that a race introduced in the FRCS will be FR specific.

Writing up Gnomes up solely in the FRCS would cause a howl of outrage from many, many quarters - for example.

So, what race is uniquely a FR playable race as opposed to other settings?
