Most of my thoughts on this were the points others stated above, but one thing that nobody else seems to have mentioned: can we get a Rubbery option? We can be clay as it is, so I would love to have an option to be rubber as well. (I am assuming that an option to make your captain a fluke is entirely off the table. If that assumption is correct, it is an understandable if disappointing design decision; if not, then, well.)

Oh, no, I like this idea! Or how about at least rubbery bits? Like the bits you can pick up in Flute Street.

I was thinking of this as being one of the Outfits that takes up the whole character, but a peculiar personal enhancement as an option compatible with wearing some semblance of normal clothes is also a good idea!

I'd also like some more feminine options.

I really like being able to choose my background, then refine it further, but was wondering if you'd consider adding Ringbreaker to the Urchin background or Mycologene School to the poet?

I will echo everything else that's been said so far. Being able to click left and right (or use arrow keys) to cycle options would be swell. More options in general would also be peachy, including more feminine options.

In particular, I'd like to see a few more hats. The ones that are there are excellent, but I'm missing a grand be-feathered spectacle like Barbossa's hat from Pirates of the Caribbean. And perhaps something like an aviator's cap, with goggles up or down?

I can make no promises, but you do have my word that I will pass this onto our writing team. It's likely our Narrative Director has got his plans set for the Origins/Histories, but I shall most definitely mention this to him.

Bigger: it's very cumbersome to have to select the portrait choices from the list by scrolling and clicking. Left and right arrows for scrolling through the options would be much faster, especially since character creation is a thing I'll easily spend ages on fiddling with the smallest detail.

This may be too much work, but I think it would also be easier to remember which face part is which (& quite flavourful!) if the various options had names rather than numbers. There's something charming about the idea of choosing 'The Charleston' or 'The Winsome Derringer' rather than 'Nose 7.'


Mostly agreeing with these, although I'd prefer horizontal rows of thumbnails for the character options - something like this, perhaps?

I like the different options available both in terms of the story and also the stat boosts. More options (for the character backgrounds) in general seems like a nice idea but it could get too cumbersome. In terms of the portrait/names, i agree with others that there should be a way to click through rather than scroll. I didnt even realize there were more than 6 options at first.

BTW the hat with all the tentacles is my favorite. I dont think I'm going to ever choose a different one over it.
