  1. Yes, you got it. I'll post a more in-depth answer in response to your comments on the other thread. Edit: Sorry, but if I want to role-play a Geralt of Rivia type "spirit," (don't care what Geralt would look like as a bird), I would want any vessel I inhabit to have the same weathered, serious, MALE features. Jumping into a female mage type vessel would immediately feel impersonal and just a temporary tool for a single purpose. Why would I invest time and energy into this "vessel" more than any other? Especially if there are duplicates of it running around. I just realized in responding to these posts just how confusing this system is...
  2. The "vessel" concept is fantastic in terms of variety and loot/leveling mechanics. However (BIG However), with this system there is no connection to your character. Essentially, it's just a MOBA on steroids. There is no connection to your character, which means there is no commitment to your character. If I don't have any significant investment in my character's individuality, then I won't have as much fun and likely will not have the drive to see my character progress and grow. IE: player retention will suffer, and a large population of players who enjoy feeling connected to their characters (ahem, roleplayers) will not want to play at all. SOLUTION: Face/hair customization. If my "crow" is some generic copy of every other "crow" that other players create, that's one thing. But if I get to create the appearance of my character's face and hair, then I essentially get to customize the part of my character that has the most humanity or "soul," while at the same time creating a character that feels individual to me. Every time I switch to a different "vessel," the face and hair stay the same... while the body composition, muscle mass, limbs/appendages (looking at you centaur) all change to fit the "vessel." In this way, we still have our individuality, while still being able to enjoy the revolutionary vessel system. A true MMO-RPG- experience. Or I can just go play LoL/DOTA/HotS and have the same type of fun without the required time (or financial) sink. Please take this into consideration! -Kickstarter Backer's 2cents edit: And if some characters are male only or female only, then if you create a male "crow," you can't play female vessels and vice versa. Completely reasonable and an excuse to create more than one crow.
  3. I agree but have a more game-wide solution: The "vessel" concept is fantastic in terms of variety and loot/leveling mechanics. However (BIG However), with this system there is no connection to your character. Essentially, it's just a MOBA on steroids.
