Wired spoke recently with Tabula Rasa's Lead Designer, Paul Sage, about the new hybrids being added to the game. Due in large part to player demand for more playable races, and also to address the team's desire to have attributes play a bigger role, hybrid races have been added to the Tabula Rasa world.

The characters are actually human/alien hybrids. "You use the DNA from the aliens to augment yourself," explains Sage. Adding aliens to the playable roster was always part of the plan for Tabula Rasa, but the community feedback inspired the team to include it "a little earlier than we thought we would."

You can read all about it on Wired's site, then head on over to the Tabula Rasa Community Forums to discuss the game with your fellow players.
