I feel like most of the posters in this thread didn't even READ the original post. Not all of it. I think a lot of them just saw the topic and immediately started reacting based on their pre-conceived ideas. Or if they did read it, they did so with a profound lack of empathy.
Go back and read what Saturdiva actually wrote. Do you really have no sympathy for her, or the other people in her shoes?
This isn't about "outrage", "cancel culture", "being woke", "politics", or anything like that. OTHER people make it about those things. This is a plea on behalf of a real group of people (represented by Saturdiva) to have their personal feelings and desires recognized. And you all just want to attack it, thoughtlessly. You just don't get it, or you don't WANT to get it, and it makes me sad.
And I think it's likely that there's more going on in your subconscious motives for doing so than just pure concern for the inviolability of The Lore™.
Jeez one simple request about adding diversity and suddenly it's all about accuracy and lore which I'm completely fine with!!!!
I personally dont mind how the elves look but I do mind that most options for them are eurocentric which again is fine but it would be nice to have more options that include diverse features!
Even with the human heads there is not enough diverse options!!!!
And for those who want the elves to look different that's fine you all prove a valid point but you cant deny that with the different races of elves you can diversify them without making them look too human! There is so much to play with and so much opportunities!
Especially for such an amazing game!
Guys remember this is DnD and it's different for everyone!
