There's no skimpy gear in the game currently, those of us who like it want options too...
God forbid adventurers wear clothes appropriate for adventuring....
God forbid we have different options to play our characters how we please in a RPG?
You literally have every single other option in the game to fit what you want already, also the characters don't wear '' appropriate adventure '' gear and clothes to begin with but I am not going to get into a big argument about that.
But you wouldn't walk around dressing like Astarion or in heavy plate armor as an adventurer either. That's just Hollywood not realism.
Yeah Minsc is a terrible option as an Origin, he doesnt lend itself to beeing a protagonist.
And yeah, i want more good options
stop beeing prudes. There should be skimpy stuff. Withcer got that one figured out. Why would a female caster ever look frumpy
Err do you actually know which outfit my comment referred to? And Witcher 3 is IMO one of the Best examples of sexy but classy - especially Yen.
A lot of people would disagree with you and that's my point.
Classy is both contextual, personal and cultural, which is why I think it's a bit of a non sequitur and also why I dislike that argument.
It's really just another way of saying '' cover up woman '', and is only ever really directed at women.
I don't think that I've ever seen that argument be made against a male character or men irl no matter how little they wear.
Ultimately it's a form of moralization and policing of womens attire.
yes i do.
i also am a fan of frank frazetta.
As i said, Witcher got the idea down, i like Witchers execution but fantasy got space for sexy, not just classy.
Fair enough I can see the reference in that outfit and I'm sure it fits the narrative the way it is.
Let's just agree it would be great to have options to run around looking like this and also to not run around looking like this (which however would be difficult stat wise without some transmogrificatuon system)
The thing is that you already have every other option in the entire game not looking like this which was the point.
So yeah I get a bit irritated when I am like '' finally found something I love! '' and get excited about it and then ofc people who already have everything else suited to what they want are all like '' nah, change it to be what I want ''.
Skimpy or not, I just want the gear to look the same on everyone. I.e. if its a skimpy dress, let men wear it too, or if its a heavy plate armor do not give women bewb plate, and if they insist on bewb plate then give it to everyone.
I love how ESO has been doing it, the outfits look the same regardless of whether you are playing a male or female character. Sure, on some gear it looks ridiculous, but thats the whole point as you have freedom to choose.
Edit: I know its a different game and the gear system will be different, but I don't really see the problem of the same-looking models for either gender. The game already has it except for one datamined armor it seems.
There's always going to be some differences, for example the Nightsong one in question here could be worn by male characters too they just wouldn't wear the top.
To some extent I agree with your argument, my issue with it is that it always tends to be to just default the male armor and clothes unto the female characters instead of the male gear getting any sort of influence from the feminine.
It's like in Monster Hunter if a female set has shorts and the male set has pants, the argument is always to give the female characters pants too instead of the reverse.
Even tho that would literally just mean that EVERY set in the entire game was just pants aka less diverse.
The male stuff is always assumed to be and treated as the default.
Female gear tends to be way more diverse and less generic in general imo. There's way more variety in style and attire.
I agree that if something is skimpy for female characters it should be for male characters too, but I'd really hate to just get zero feminine influence in gear and clothes altogether because it all needs to '' be the same '' which ultimately just ends up being masculine because it's safer.
