As most of us know, the way describe is utilized and portrayed in chargen allows for an opportunity for another player to metagame if the character in question is otherwise disguised via a hood or other implements. Usually by the time the player gets their character into a disguising implement, they know about nakeds but why not give a new player/character the insight of giving their character some style and the ability to hide it when they discover disguises?
Changes for Describe
Instead of touting describe as where the new player puts in their eye and hair color. just have it be a very general description (height, build, a fair estimation on age, and any glaring traits or knacks that someone might notice right away, i.e. a Missing Limb, or an Injured Limb, tourettes, etc)
Changes for the @nakeds system

Basically instead of having it where you have to individually describe each limb players would have the option of describing both left and right appendages/organs/etc. i.e. @naked eyes(ears,legs,arms,hands,feet) is "blah blab blah" This would be an available option to anyone who is not missing a limb or has had something cybernetically replaced in one of those areas.Either that or have a "forced" description for the cybernetics or missing limbs when they become present.
-Introducing @nakeds to a new player or character in chargen and why they are important.
This is simple enough but having the player understand why keeping possible meta information out of their basic description is a good thing and some examples of how to creatively describe features, etc.
With both the @naked changes and the changes to explaining how describe should function, it "should" (not will) help new characters come out of chargen with more vibrant characters. As well for those of us who do use all our @naked messages it will cut down on the clutter of having to describe each individual limb. Of course this is just an idea so feel free to comment, criticize etc as you feel fit.
