I finally made two custom characters and used the multiplayer tool for that. Since there is a shocking shortage (no pun intended) of the smaller races, I made a deep gnome rogue named Mirabelle and a halfling bard named Lilia - love them both already.
This is Lilia
And this is Mirabelle
(And yes, the Basket full of Equipment is working again, as are aa lot of Kittentails hairmods)
I did make a paladin too, but they are really not my cup of tea, so I'm not sure, if I will ever play her. If I play her, I'll post her here.
