Would you want this added to the game?

    I've seen this idea a lot, and this is my take on it.

    So, yes, being a protectorate helps build the story, but it would be cool if you could give your characters a background different than that. Obviously, it would have to explain how you got a MM and why Esther is recruiting you, but it would allow a lot more freedom on WHO your character is.

    Maybe you're a Novakid outlaw, running from the protectorate.

    Or maybe you're a Hylotl scholar.

    What about an Avian priest, or a Floran hunter.

    Or maybe your a protectorate and nothing is different.

    Anyways, my point is that it would be cool if you could change who your character was more. Some people don't really want to be bound to being a do-gooder space cop.

    All in all, I don't mind how things are right now, but this would be a fun change.

    Why would someone want to be an evil person? That changes the whole story.

    I dunno. Maybe you just want to be a space bandit. I just really enjoy the roleplay aspect of Starbound, and I think it would be fun to choose exactly who your character is.

    Also, changing the story is exactly my point. Depending on who you are, the story would be different, adding more replay capability to the game, and making it that much more fun.

    im not the biggest fan of the vanilla start i prefer to be an outlaw but i see it like after the protectorate was destroyed you character killed the ruin for revenge and after that its up to you what happened to your character like after the ruin your character fell into a depression of sorts and turned to a life of crime or settled down and made a house or farm leaving his/her previous life behind or continued being a protectorate trying to help the galaxy im not a against a new start choice it would be so cool but i try to play off the vanilla ending cause its all we got

    I like this, what if you're on your ship and get word that some kid just destroyed the most evil god ever and is reforming the protectorate, prompting your story of running from the law. Maybe these aren't unlocked until you beat the main story though

    That would be a cool idea.

    I'd like this. I think skyrim had a mod similar to what youre describing.

    Maybe we can understand better the backstory of the races with this. After all, we just know the Human version of it.
