View Full Version : Fish players and Zorbis

If you have been reading the "YES! I'm here" thread you would see that we've toyed with the idea of creating a Zorbi player race once the Zulite is finished.

I've also noticed that within Graal many players love to play using the FISH heads. I'm curious if those players would be interested playing as a Zorbi? Or if you don't already use a FISH head, would you still be interested in playing as a Zorbi? This will give us an idea of the demand for such a race so that we can prioritize it appropriately for development.

To learn more about what the Zorbi race may consist of, refer to the aformentioned thread.

Thanks for answering!

Zoraa is, Zorbi isn't.

03-23-2001, 12:24 PM
I wasn't sure which one was, I haven't played Zelda in a long time

I'd like to be a zorbi because they're graceful and purty.

I think that zorbis race would be cool!
they could swim UNDERWATER!!!
Like make an underwater tileset and an extra world where they can go etc.
it would be way fun!

FatherDante

hm... I don't know, I would like it if it was somewhere only they could go.. it's a waste of good levels to make it so that only some players cn get there.

But it would be a good way to use a blue setcolor!

Wut is a zulite?

Any way, yah, zorbi would be a cool race... I just think the head kinda sux... oh well... They should be the ballance race, tehy can swim fast, and use swords, but aren't as strong as humans, and don't swim as fast as bomys, but have better control and don't go all over the place

I'd try out Zorbis for about a month long to see if I like them, but if there are still other races to lpay I'd first play as another race and then if I've had them all once I'd make my final decision.

As long as I could make a zorbi look like a minister I might prefer playing one.

They ought to be able to do fishing too, but not mining.

Maybe actually, fish with bonuses. Just an idea.

Aren't Zorbis just the females and Zorbas the males Tyhm? *shrugs*

I wanna be a Fish!

Umm....
Okay, Zorbas are the male Zorbis, but because the Zorbis have a matriarchy (Empress, no king, women are head of the household and the only ones swift enough to serve in the army, the men are consigned to housework) the entire race is referred to as Zorbis, after the Zorbi Empire. Kinda like how Bulls are male Cows, and there are males in the Amazon society (according to some)...

I would go insane!
(I already am i would just sink further into madness..)

I think Tyhm is creative. His quests are neat.

Thanks Lycia.

As for the Zorbi backstory, I made that up just now. Beats having Zorbi males and Zorbi females so I can call the whole race Zorbis.
'sides, I think there's a book in tyhmciddig1.graal that says all Zorbis are female, their counterparts are the exclusively male Zorbas, or Zordas, I kept changing my mind...I was aiming for Zoraas but missed, but they even had the old and since-removed head...

Here's a good question. What should the male Zorbis be, if the Zorbis become a race?
The standard Zoraas fish head (red, cyan, whatever), or the Zoraa ripoff head (the green one, either version)?

hehehe yeah zorbis would be good but i wont go them if i had to reset my account i have too many hours to lose.
And i think fishys would be cool :D :D :D :D :D

Of course the amazon society had men. They had to reproduce.

Of course, the Amazons are almost completely fictional, regreattably. :\

03-24-2001, 08:05 AM
head10.gif for normal men, we could have many alterations of that for other male heads.

But....graal should stop at that. I like how there are only 2 classes, as opposed to other servers with 50 classes. It makes graal different...in some good way. Probably because everyone is almost equal

Zulithe
03-24-2001, 12:44 PM
There are humans and bomy, and if Zulite and/or Zoribi gets accepted that would be 4. Thats not so much of an overkill, is it?

Spyder5782
03-24-2001, 01:14 PM
=\

Who knows?
All I'm saying is Graal is great the way it is-Different from other servers. I just hope is stays like that.

I think zorda/zorba's should have head863.gif ^^

But to get back to seriouseness, any of the fish heads except head863.gif could be used for the zorda/zorba's.

The other servers don't have totally unique races! That's something special for us!
I like having unique players! I'm still championing player magic!

Head863 is the best head online.

It owns.

yeah its King Zora (or is it Zorda..?) but the race itself is the Zoraa (or is it just Zora?) i believe, im not sure which, if, both are copyrighted

I think you are mixing the names for the
guy in zelda3 who sells 'swimming tools'
and the race in zelda64

03-25-2001, 03:14 AM
they're zoraa's.......double A.........Zorda.....i only heard that name on graal......i dunno if thats copywritten......if you're speaking about another class for newmain.......zorda would be a good one, since i HEARD the flippers are coming out for graal soon :D

That is truly like a male zorbi thing I think, although the head still looks a tad too human... Although that's just my opinoin of course.

is a Zorbi original..? im confused

Zorbi and Zorda are not affiliated with any copyrighted things I think...

In the Zelda games they originally were Zoraas and then Zoras but that isn't Zorbis are Zordas so I think Tyhm can safely use them without getting sueed.

Tyhm
03-25-2001, 09:00 AM
Zorbi is 100% original, to my knowledge, and my contribution to Graal.
Zorda and Zorba were actually my failed attempts to recall the name of the Zoraas, but they probably need a better name anyway. Not make it TOO obvious where they come from.

03-25-2001, 05:33 PM
Well it sounds cool to me...

FatherDante
03-26-2001, 12:03 AM
How about just calling them "Fish" since everyone seems to like fish so much anyway?

Nai
03-26-2001, 12:30 AM
or "Water super people"!

FatherDante
03-26-2001, 12:35 AM
Man, think about it, if you had a choice when you started of These three:

"Human
Bomy
Water Super People"

Which one would seem most appealing? Need a more humble name for them. ;)

Nai
03-26-2001, 12:40 AM
That is a fine name! lol

grim_squeaker_x
03-26-2001, 07:27 PM
Well I like it better if they have some kind of special name other then "fish" myself... Zorbi sounds quite nice actually.
