You are probably tired of me telling you how I lack the creativity gene, but I am afraid I am going to mention it again. I was looking through my Instagram feed this morning, noticing the creative activities that people were completing – dancing, singing and playing instruments. Me? Posting an image of my soya latte! I’ve never really been creative and/or artistic and I often I have real problem about colours. Not seeing them, although my eyesight is less than perfect, but more coordinating them. This not only presents problems when choosing wallpaper and paints, it also present a real problem when I am trying to coordinate my clothing. However, when it comes to clothing, this is usually the least of my problems!
In the dim and distant pass there was a time that no games were online and adventures were limited to playing with character sheets, dice and small painted models. During this time, I remember that there was a cartoon that depicted a female barbarian in what only be described as ‘limited’ armour which complimented her female body. The armour had numerous arrows sticking into it and was accompanied with the caption -“Good job I was wearing my armour!” Despite meeting probably all of the sexual stereotypes which abound within fantasy settings, the armour on the scantily clad warrior may have been provoking (top charisma score out of 18) it was highly impractical. It was only when I decided to create a Blood Elf Mage to test in the beta that I realised that the suitability of clothing for the starting area of FROST ridge was still not completely being considered.
