I'm really loving Legends so far and have been playing as the Ikkuro for 6 years (game time). Characters definitely add a whole new dimension to gameplay and I'm happy for Erik and Elliot that the tech support forum hasn't been overwhelmed with issues as I've seen in the past. I love it that Elliot clearly has had a personal vision for DW and that much time/effort/love has been fed into each stage of development of this game.

I don't have many complaints so far, but I'm confused about the identity of the Ikkuro. I studied a bit of biology at University...but it doesn't take a zoologist to say that, judging from profile pic, the Ikkuro look like BATS. The long ears and funny-shaped nose definitely suggest this anyway.

But the galactopedia clearly states that they are Primates...

Scroll down a bit further however, and it says they are actually Ursidian (their race family) i.e. BEARS.

Whhaaaat?!

I know, it's a minor issue. But it would be nice to see a bit of clarification

They look like monkeys. But aren't there some RL animals that are related to both primates and ursidians? I dunno why I have this thought lol...

Hehe, I remember it took me a while when I first got DW to remember that Ikkuro ARE NOT HUMANS CLOSEST COUSIN.  I thought the two races of primates would be good friends and in the same family, but the Ikkuro have betrayed their obvious ape lineage and declared themselves bears.
