theres a middle road and its what most stylized fantasy tends to take. Also, relay they dont? Id say modern fashion gets pretty close to chainmail bikini levels when its apropriateley warm.
I for one wait for mens fashion to catch up with RPG costumes still, but the Leif Nelson brand seems to be catching the drift
That could be true. I haven't been to the beach for nearly a decade. It's up to Larian how they want to go about it after all. Vanity and partial nudity aren't deal-breakers for me but female characters with actual character development (not very realistic, eh? hehe just kidding) are certainly more memorable.
