N.B gender ambiguous names are not allowed (I'm not staff, just what they told me). For example 'Teen' 'Wretch' 'Youth'
Would suggest male ones, but I can't see their list!
New Masculine Terms:
New Feminine Terms:
I did not include the slurs at this time. :)
I'd like to have 'twink' added to the male list. Pretty please? c:
Surprises me that it's not already a thing!
Basically, add a few adjectives for people to choose from based on their size. Other things like attractiveness could still override them as they do now. These don't need to be gendered, but the current existing ones could probably remain gendered.
Short+thin: Waifish, Slight, Tiny
Short+average: Small, Short
Short+heavy: Round, Pear-shaped, Dumpy
Average+thin: Thin, Lean, Skinny
Average: Normal, Typical, Unremarkable
Average+heavy: Heavy-set, Fat
Tall+thin: Slender, Gaunt, Willowy
Tall+average: Lanky, Long-legged
Tall+heavy: Big, Enormous, Huge
thank you and god bless
I wonder what @Johnny thinks of the suggestions so far. Y'think he'd check? In-game it still says to give staff a poke if we don't 'see anything we like' in the @shortdesc change menu. It confuses me a little on where to bring this up.
I really like that thing about describing your build more, even in disguises! Puny and petite is becoming a bit generic at times. +1 to @Vera.
"Who your character is: (at a glance)
If you don't see something you need, bug us."
But @Johnny has replied to this thread before, so maybe it's still a legit way of suggesting these things efficiently?
And yeah, like @Vera said, more variances to CHOOSE from regarding your character's adjective could be really cool, but possibly involve a lot of coding.
Why I think 'twink' should be added is because it is a -very- common term in the gay community. Maybe moreso than 'fag', and that's an option as a @shortdesc. It also makes it more clear that it is someone who isn't TOO feminine but still boyish. Using the 'boy' term may make it seem like they are underage.
Again, this is very, very specific. But I think it could be a useful indicator.
Some have a slash in between as it could have a different alternative and I think staff could go with whichever they prefer, if any. They're just suggestions, after all! c:
Suggestions for 'male':
Suggestions for 'female':
@title is where i used the andro thing in the past, but they aren't going to put something in where both males and females will have an identical shortdesc
Sufficient disguise skill should be required for that sort of thing. Also 'androgynous' is not really a noun. You'd want a word like 'person' in that case.
