DzC Races of the Future

There has always been a select number of races that David Lewis has planned for the Dropzone Commander, and from previous discussions with him over the years, that number is capped out at 8 distinct factions/races. These of course are a ways out in the future, as he does not want to add new races to with every book release and progression of the Dropzone timeline.

This was the latest conversations that brought up the number of races for the game, taken from facebook, where Solomon Chang had dinner with David Lewis at the Las Vegas Open.

"There's a lot of whispers on the forums that the Scourge are actually running away from a bigger threat. Any thoughts on that?"
"No. I've already planned out the storylines of the current races for the next two years, and while there will be a shocking revelation about the Scourge, it won't be that."
(Okay fine, just like a typical British tabloid.)

"Any spoilers on new races? How many races will DzC have?"
"No, no spoilers. Dropzone Commander will probably cap out at 8 races, but most new stuff will simply be additions to current factions." "

  1. Dammit, Natfka! Now you're making me go open Facebook and putz around there... I hate FB... Oh, well, if you can't beat em (or stop them!), then join em, I guess...

  2. Hope they introduce an alien race that fit my tastes, while I appreciate the look of the scourge and shaltari - their infantry aren't alien looking enough for me. I want some good looking floating creatures.

    1. All of the original 4 races will be getting a bunch of new Infantry Units this year, probably at GenCon, and probably the next Reconquest book. Scourge are getting some sort of dragon looking things, about the size of Prowlers, judging by what Dave said on an interview with Orbital Bombardment at Invasion in ?London in February. That's the rumor so far, anyway. Looks like up to three new Units for each of the original 4 factions... Maybe you'll see something you like there...

      (And have you seen Destroyers? They're pretty "alien looking"! LOL!)
