Not to sound too negative...oh nevermind this will be negative.
Why do they even have races in EQ2? From the sound of it they no longer have their own cultures or cities (arguably one of the best things about the original EQ). Everyone I talk to seems to look back in wonder or at least fondly at the different race cities and cultures like seeing kelethin in the trees, or the dark neon city of the dark elves, or hearing the cute music in rivervale with its little hobbit hole houses.
If they are going to go this silly route with everyone starting in a human city with no culture behind them then why not just make the character customization limitless and let you make your character look however you want? That way you can make a 6 foot blue rabbit as that is less silly then dark elves that live with gnomes, or the wood elves of kelethin living in a stone city of humans.
