    So, guess what?
     
    Even if you're in a guild, you might not be able to play with them, and sometimes have to play against them (in let's say Faction v Faction). Wouldn't that be fun? I could only imagine all the craziness going on, however, I don't think this would be a good idea because of Ventrilo/Teamspeak, etc and the potential for exploiting.
     
    But still food for thought. If guilds only mattered in Player Kingdoms and Guild v Guild worlds.... hmmm

    Yes, the Stoneborn ARE all one gender.  (Male-ish, since they don't reproduce. technically, since they are made of stone and wood, they're more like golems.)
     
    I'm not willing to bend on this one, because who they are and where they came from are critical to the game's narrative.  This particular chapter is a cornerstone of our backstory.
     
    With the other archetypes, I'm pretty open in this regard.  If enough people are interested in female Centaurs -- sure, no problem!  It's not that I don't like the idea; it's just that we're trying to be realistic and spend our resources on the features/assets that will be the most popular.  We had to make educated guesses as to what fell on either side of that line.  If we made the wrong call, and you guys REALLY want a female Centaur Legionnaire (or whatever), we are totally cool with that.
     
    But when the narrative relies on it, well, that's another matter.  I hope you understand, and will be willing to give me this one.

    Some onedimensional thinking from some of us in here, don't be scared about what you can and can't do just yet! Notice how the Eternal Kingdoms are seperated by a line from the other worlds? Could it be that these will be the "main worlds" where we will fight for our lands and player-driven kingdoms, while we can venture out into the other worlds in order to explore and pillage, partially depending on what ruleset every one prefers, partially what rewards each world holds for us?

    Remember there are pieces to this puzzle that haven't been revealed yet. Some of you are close to figuring out the key piece, keep it up!

    What PvE'ers?

    Crafting
    Thrall hunting
    "We have creatures that are incredibly deadly, but they don’t hang out at the end of a dungeon waiting for you to come kill them.  They also don’t drop rare magic items when defeated – because that would undercut the player-driven economy."
     
    PvE = anything you are doing while you're not PvPing. I don't think these guys are going to make a gankfest. Unless noob land starts with opening the gates and a FFA ensues -- there's going to be PvE.

    Yeah, it wasn't quite how I was expecting the different worlds to work either. I'm wondering if the 'universe map' is indicating more than one world per ruleset?

    So much material!  Each world with different rulesets?  There's a whole SPECTRUM.  I personally am going to like the worlds where PvP is factional or guild based, but love to visit the FFA Dregs from time to time.  This is not quite how I'd imagined the different worlds would interact!

    Don't see whats so silly about someone wanting to be able to identify with their characters. Especially in a MMORPG .

    Well my vote is to add in female centaurs. You don't see centaurs in other games, and it would be way cool to have lady ones, especially since they are already mentioned as existing in lore. It's weird when the other gender exists but you never see their models in game...
     
    I'm pretty sure I would roll a centaur character either way? But a lady one would definitely become my favorite, rather than 'I had to make a buff dude because that's the only way to get horse legs'. (Buff, stocky centaur lady? Yes please.) If it would make it easier for the art, I'm pretty sure I'd be cool with the horse body looking the same for both genders, and I'm pretty sure it could work too.

    I too would prefer a stable core game. However, if female centaur were an option to make once the core game was stable (versus some other content), I'm pretty sure I would prefer the latter. I, and I believe others who would like to see playable women centaur, understand from previous quotes that they are not cheap to make. We're just letting ArtCraft know that there is indeed a demand for women centaur (who certainly don't have to be 'girly'). After all, it sounds like there are already some who wouldn't play as a centaur unless there was a female skin. (Though I'm sure similar discussions will come up for the other 'monstrous' races; this would be something where ArtCraft would have to weigh the popularity of the matter for each race).

    I can understand your sentiment, but if we just 'wait' it may indicate early on that there is -not- a demand for women centaur, which would mean even less of a chance that women centaur would get made in the future. I think having discussions about the genders of various playable races as they are announced (or at least hinted at) gives a better idea of future priorities. Feedback earlier on allows for better planning in the future, right?
     
    I think it's because the centaur story mentioned a lady centaur and the fact the upper body looks like a regular human that I was hoping for women centaur to be playable. Centaur aren't seen much in other games as a playable race, so I was looking forward to playing as one. When I play characters, I like ones that reflect my own gender, which would be female. Plus, this limits the RP opportunities presented, and what I would put for my backstory.
     
    I can understand gender-locking other races, especially since some of them will be women-only, some men-only. I hope, though, that there is convincing lore as to -why- they are gender-locked. (Plus, other gender-locked races may not look as human, and therefore is easier to accept that the other gender is not playable).

    Now that we know Centaurs are official, I think the next question is whether or not there will be female centaurs.
     
     
    To me, centaurs clearly fall into the humanoid category, since they literally have a human torso.
    Further more the lore/character profile for the centaur noted that he has a wife, and given her name, she's probably a centaur.
     
     
    Thou I am sure you could find lore reasons not to see female centaurs on the field of battle, but that can be said of every race.
     
    Bottom line, I'd like to play a centaur, but if I'm not given a female option, then I won't, period.
    It very much is a make or break issue for me.
     
    Not having a female option on clearly non human beings, where you can't tell the gender in either case, like Lizard or Rat people, I have no problem with.  You could just as well use the same model for both a male and female voice package and call it a day.
    But for clearly very human like creatures like Centaurs, that just won't fly.

    I signed up just to look at the centaur art more. I don't think I've seen any other MMO really do centaur before, so I'm definitely in! Centaur! I hope Centaur don't count as 'monstrous' enough to be limited to just male models though. I really want a lady centaur!
