Do it like this. Not like this.
I know something better then that
Do it like THIS:
See...the models are already made
Yeah I see that. But as they say, beta is beta. Things change. Not that the models now are bad, but I would just like to see more masculine models on cat races. Just wishful thinking on my part.
They are Aurin, not cat people. And the males are the weaker gender.
.....wishfull thinking I can see that....the reason why Aurin can't be warriors is because they are a more agile/smart race instead of masculine, so I personally don't think you'll see any ripped Aurin males It won't fit the lore/settup for the aurins in this game to be very masculine, although more people probably want to see that, seeing how many people want to make an Aurin warrior
For muscles go Granok, for brains go Aurin, for Mediocrety go human for craziness go <RADACTED> (if you pick Exiles).
No please, why do every male have to look like they have been chewing steroids for the best part of their life?
The Aurin are thin, lean, jungle animal people. They can't even be warriors- why would they be all bulky?
I mean, I guess you can draw your Aurin as thick as you want, but logically...
Though you are entitled to your opinion, and that's all well and good, I must respectfully disagree. Aurin are an inherently agile race of jungle dwellers who rely on their tiny bodies, speed, and fast reflexes to take down their prey by outmaneuvering and ambushing them, rather than on brute strength and overpowering them in a toe-to-toe fight.
If you really want your hairy Manly Man of Manliness, I suggest you make a Granok or an Exile human with plenty of facial hair, and hair in general. The male Aurins will forever be lean, mean, bishounen hunter boys.
I don't mind that they are slender and agile, I think its cool to steer away from the roid pumpin' norm. But I would like to have facial options to make them look a little bit more vicious... just because he's slender doesn't mean he has to be gentle.
Carbine has a couple of playable races that feature animalistic traits both in design and behavior. The aurin pretty much got the house cat treatment. They have animal traits but they are generally downplayed in favor of creating a more approachable race, also cuteness quotient.
The Draken on the other hand got pretty much the opposite, fierce, aggressive, vicious, and not entirely civilized the Draken are pretty much barbarian thunder cats with horns and tails who don't hesitate to bare fangs and claws at a moment's notice.
It's a little unfortunate that things are so polarized, I would like to see some more toned down Draken and some more fierce Aurin, hopefully that is in the cards, we just haven't really seen it yet.
To me that looks pretty ''fierce'' so the only thing they need to do, is to make sure that which they showed us a long time ago is achievable trough costumisation
Which would seem like a logical thing to do....atleast to me
I wouldn't say they're weaker, but they are the less dominant sex. IIR the Aurin society was matriarchal. That however doesn't mean that they aren't considered equal ala women in our patriarchal society.
Also, to add to the subject matter of the post and to agree with a lot of prior posters, I agree with not having any big beefy Aurin. As has been stated they're lythe and agile forest dwellers who have been quoted as "frolicking in the branches of the trees" (source). A big muscular huge animal male wouldn't really fit with that scene.
Yeah I was just talking about the in-game stuff we have seen so far, I hope that art makes some kind of 1:1 translation into the game because it's really cool looking.
The only reason I ever doubted between Exile/Dominion, because of the ''fierce/tribal'' looks of him......oh how much I love tribal races.....Just gotta love those little tiki guys (mobs) in the game
Wish they were playable
Also I just loved the Trolls/Tauren of WoW.....hmm.....good times
This was the exact picture I had in my mind.
But this is what scares me, I don't really want to have to rely on high level armor to look deadly.
I don't need a muscle freak male version of every race. There's plenty of those so I'm happy.
What I DO want to see (even though I still won't play it) is a fiercer male aurin such as the picture on the races page. The tattooing/tribal art, the fierce expression, I hope both male AND female aurin can get that. It looks sexy.
Trolls ftw !
Oh and I agree with Xlugon's stuff, so there's my opinion
In speaking of tattoos, I would like to see some appearance options for them. Especially for the draken and aurin races.
I feel pseudo-obligated to pop in and support adorable animal boys. It would indeed be nice to have some more aggressive features, either in facial structure or things like tattoos/et cetera, but if I have to play one more roidrage male stereotype I'm going to <REDACTED> brix.
In before the lock and before those little kids saying it's necro'ing
People don't understand it's just a little Reborn magic being used:
