Even with there so called body diversity added, I’m not seeing it thus far from the screen shots and streams people are showing in Wildstar. Not at allll. All I see is super skinny with medium bust, and average body with super big bust for the female bodies. GG. Not really good.
SWTOR still the reigning champ for body diversity in the MMO scene, even compaired to ESO and GW2.
i will preface this by saying that swtor is well-loved by me and that i was incredibly excited to play a body type 1 male and body type 3 female character; i also loved the bodytype 4 female’s build.

but for real, i just threw these three figures together in about five minutes; they don’t even represent every single slider up or every single slider down. they are also all the same height to emphasize the differences a bit more (the height slider can take a lady nord from a little over 5’ to nearly 7’. teme-xuha's hrost towers almost a foot over my (male) mer).
the age slider is included because it further shadows/hollows out certain features. bonus side view of the last lady included to show that you can actually build a female-preset character that effectively has little to no breast tissue.
sorry for taking this post to push this point, but i keep seeing a lot of people who seem to have some misconceptions about just how generous character creation in TESO is! especially when you go beyond just pushing the sliders all one way or the other.
it is also nice to have clothes that fit; shoutout to all the bodytype three ladysnipers whose rifles clip through their ass
Wow bukowski so profound do you also bathe fully clothed you dickhead. “Oohh isn’t it funny that a person will eat when they’re hungry but will duck if you throw an apple at their face”(via coolestpriest)
The Last Unicorn has been my all-time favourite animated movie. Thanks to www.disneyscreencaps.com, the entire movie has been screencapped online. The images are simply breathtaking. The images I posted here are just from 8 pages of caps, and there’s still 50+ pages to adore over! This are just landscape and scenery shots, and they are simply breath-taking!
as a caveat to the previous video / after talking to @teme-xuha while the servers were down, i am now strongly considering a tl;dr textpost about why offering TESO players ‘any race, any faction’ is in fact perfectly valid from a lore perspective. in fact, it is more valid than the — let’s just say somewhat arbitrary — in-game factions are in the first place.
not only is it perfectly valid, but as far as roleplayers and writers are concerned, there are a nearly endless number of good hooks to explore in regards to how and why your dark elf is aggressively fighting on behalf of the covenant, why your high elf fucks off and pledges to no one, why your argonian rejects their own native culture —
All Red Dragons Breathe Fire and This Race is Always This Thing are two of the least productive, least realistic, and most proliferated fantasy tropes out there, so it always sort of makes me cringe when i see fans playing into it: no argonian that ever lived would ever do thing. all dark elves are adjective. elf queen said thing, so that is how it is going to be. i’m not saying ‘ignore canon, do thing’ here; i’m saying use canon to achieve socially realistic, well-written results. seriously! instead of writing off issues like this — C0DA aside, in-game faction definitions aside — look at your individual character, think of it from a writer’s perspective, and ask: really?
THE ELDER SCROLLS LORE: TESO IN PERSPECTIVE
while the US servers are down for maintenance, here’s a short video from the shoddycast taking a summary look at where and how TESO comes to fit into the overall scheme of elder scrolls lore — particularly helpful if you, like me, are a roleplayer and a journeyman of this storyline at best.
Sigur Ros did a cover? MUST HAVE! (two more hours until I can watch the episode)
They did! And get to make an appearance in the show. (Don’t think that’s a terrible horrible thing to reveal hopefully.)
Just watched it a bit ago and did laugh to see them!
