This is a good example of how skimpy can fit in this setting. He is purposely revealing his skin so he can better cause pain to himself. This "armor" serves its purpose, which is not to protect the user

I am not gonna lie; first time I saw him I didn't think twice about killing him, just to see if I could have looted it and placed it on my PC.
Needless to say I was left disappointed.

Just want to point out that there are spells and magic items that allow you to have an AC bonus and still allows you to wear whatever you want. That said, the Chosen (if they are still alive in 5E I am not sure, I only know Blackstaff is dead for sure), that the Seven Sisters were not known for wearing very conservative clothing. However, they probably had Bracers (or Bracelets) of Armor and had pretty high dexterity. So revealing armors are kind of apart of the game for men and women. Barbarians usually get away with it due to Damage reduction and usually having higher than average dexterity than some fighters, but as it is noted you can have fighters with higher dex scores than 10. That said this is a Fantasy setting where anything is possible. You are playing a character that is or could change into a Mind Flayer at any moment. hahaha How hard is it to believe there are heroes that dress like this? I just find it absurd that people just say, "Whoa!" at aesthetics for armor in a game that has the ability to swap your gender and race or into a tree if you want. As far as Full-Plate granted a 22 AC, if it was Magical I would allow it. Even if it was a Full-Plate bikini. It is MAGICAL. As in capable of doing the IMPOSSIBLE. If you don't like magic breaking your reality immersion, then you really aren't into fantasy. No one is saying you have to equip your female characters to look like skimpy clothed vixens and no one should expect others to always want their characters to conform to how they BELIEVE they should look. As far as allowing things at your gaming tabletops, that is YOUR gaming group, and while it is totally justifiable to expect things there you should not expect everyone to adhere to your thinking. I don't expect anyone to think everything I say or do is correct nor do I think I am always correct, but I refuse to let creativity to be stifled.

I have a better solution for all of you though, but why can't we just simply have armors that are made for those that want to have the skimpy look and those that don't. The developers could have a few actual sets that are revealing, but hey as everyone says if you don't like that there is always modding! Seriously, don't stifle peoples creativity just because you personally find it distasteful. I don't expect people to get art, but I'm tired of people shaming others for simply expressing themselves. And my mini-rant has ended! *Flips Night Watch cloak around dramatic style and goes back to guard the realms of men.* silly

well the fact that the game is rate M and also Black desert online influence :P
you do know modeler will do it anyway right ? I meant they do it for every single game(nude mod). so I still don't get it why the DEVS don't get the message. if I want to go around NAKED let me do it.

let me fight the guard that try to arrest me too.

but this this is not what I am asking, this is a Fantasy game for adult I see nothing wrong in having some sexy and revealing clothing and armors in the game from scratch. (not made by a bod)


That can simply be explained by the changes to modern society and overall change to acceptance of stereotypes and how we look upon genders. What kind of signals do a company want to send to their customers. That they are in touch with the modern world and views regarding stereotypes. Or that they still see humanoid characters, mostly females, as sex objects.

That there exists modders and players that still feel the need to confirm old portraying's of gender roles/stereotypes/equality in games is nothing a company really should adhere to.

To try and make the discussion more "serious" I think it would be a good thing if the PC and all of the companions had a quick swap between armor and "casual clothing" which is used at camp at minimum. Possibly even when in Baldur's Gate.

I mean, I know it's not traditionally how D&D has been understood to work. But traditionally speaking, armors are only donned prior to battle. You certainly wouldn't walk around town in full plate. It would make encounters more interesting if you could be ambushed while waiting in a tavern in casual attire.

Take care of this, and what more do you need? Outside of cutscenes the characters are generally zoomed too far out to ogle anyway. And the number of talking sexy warrior NPCs you meet is...uhh...I can't think of any.

Just to play a bit of devil's advocate on this thread,

me and my wife both play video games together and she always mods her games to wear more skimpy armor.

Some women actually really like that stuff, at least ones I've known.

Some of the pictures OP is posting belong to one of those Asian MMOs where everyone is half naked and carries giant weapons.

But I wouldn't mind skimpy "armor".
Maybe some light armor with the belly exposed.
Or a fancy robe for clothies... they dont that much armor.

It just has to be done in good taste. Functional but "sexy".
Let players decide how they want to do this.

And make sure an armor that covers everything for men but makes female characters half naked doesnt happen.

Maybe someone wants to see skimpy Astarion. Well let them.

You keep saying we.
Who else?

Honestly the armor examples you showed were very cringy and were so outside the art style and theme of this game.
Why would my character... any character walk around with their ass hanging out?

Your armor ideas belong to modded skyrim and asian softcore porn MMOs.

I do not think that sexuality = armored bra, but the fact that we need more beautiful clothes for both guys and girls is definitely. I don't like wearing a standard robe; I want to be a cool sorcerer.
If Larian adds more sexy clothes for girls, but not an armored bra - normal, stylish, sexy clothes of course it will be very cool and I fully support this idea.
For the rest there is a caste scene. + If the players have their own house or castle, it will be possible to buy various non-armored suits, including sexy ones. It is very cool.

Knock it off. Even though I'm not a fan of bikini armour, that's uncalled for.

Not a D&D thing?
I mean did any of you see the artwork for 2nd edition AD&D?

In all seriousness, it makes sense from a mage perspective where Magic sees you through, less so for proper armpit, apart from magical armpit because again, magic.

Do I need it? No. If done with humour or in moderation, sure, why not. Certainly wouldn’t want it as main design philosophy and I’m pretty sure we are safe from that.

I think that's totally a waste of ressources and I think it's totally inconsistent as an armor in such a dangerous world.
But I know many players like to see (half) nude women in video games. Just find it very strange...

For example.

This is what I would call a functional but somewhat skimpy armor for a female warrior.

Even though Forgotten Realms is a fantasy setting, generally speaking in my fiction I want to have internally consistent worlds which make logical sense - even if they don't actually follow the laws of physics as we know them.

Otherwise, the whole "breaking immersion" thing happens.
