Sneak Preview: Your Appearance!

edited October 2018 in The Commsphere

The above examples are what you may see when you LOOK at someone. The "description" field is freeform and can be changed anytime; the rest have restrictions of some kind. Enjoy!

And before you say anything, the inconsistent capitalization in the feature list has already been fixed! It was bugging me, too. :(


  • Why is there a slash across the W'hoorn description?

    Oh I probably did that in paint.
  • The second one isn't loading for me :(
  • The slash is there to represent what I'm gonna do to them!  :)

    Some help files to accompany the examples:

    3.7.1 Appearance and Build

    Appearance and build, as viewed when looking at yourself or another person, are aspects that cannot be directly set.

    Appearance is initially based on your age, but can be modified via rejuv treatments. See HELP REJUV for more.

    Build is calculated based on your caloric intake vs. balance time. If you want to have a different build, either start eating or start exercising! See HELP FOOD AND DRINK for more.

    3.7.2 Description

    In addition to selecting various traits such as height and skin color, you can also set a freeform description. This can be any text you like, going beyond your basic physical features and describing, for example, a visible attitude, facial expression, physical tic, or distinguishing feature like a scar. The syntax is:

      DESCRIBE MYSELF AS <text>               Write a freeform description.

    If you choose, you could elaborate on, but should not contradict, your basic features. For example, if you have hazel eyes, you should not use this description to say "Though they seem hazel, Tecton's eyes actually are red lasers beams." Instead, you could elaborate with "Tecton's hazel eyes are soulful and expressive, like those of an adoring puppy dog."

    I'm already wetting my litter box :anguished:
    I would say the slash is there to represent the ferocity and raw passion of my people.

    What's with all the sheaths?
    Armor is a sheath that melds over the proper bodypart (for light/medium armor) or a unit for heavy/beasts (which is welded onto your beast suit)
  • Will BEAST suits be like late edition Iron Man suits where it can deploy over your body from a central back unit?
    Also, custom clothes for looking like Spike Spiegel?


  • Well, I was planning to make my character fat - It looks like one of my first activities will be to find a place to stuff my face!
  • Are the jetpacks operable?
  • Hello,

    Are the jetpacks operable?
    Indeed they are!
  • Oh boy! I wonder how the whole 'build' thing will work between classes if there is a difference.

    Like, would an engineer who just hoverboards around all day get fat from lack of exercise where as a Fury hippity hoppitying around and swinging a sword be swole provided they take in enough calories?

    Or are these activities one would need to manually take part in inside a city/your ship's gym?

  • Hello,
    can you put in text what you have in the pictures of the Appearance? am a blind player, so can't see whats in the pictures.

    I know these names.... :chuffed: :D
    Lol, I don't know whether to feel proud of myself that I recognized them or terribly embarrassed that it took me this long to notice the names. I only did because of your most recent post, @Oryx ...

    As T'rath has pierced the veil, so will I, and so will my life become complete in a good death.

    Inara comming from a strongly monogamistic race/culture sounds a bit off, though :-)
