My position has sort of jumped around, but now I'm firmly against changing the class system.
Genders would be cool, maybe, if someone put the effort into doing it for all classes.

The problem with any of these things is that it would make it much harder to make new classes, and I really want to clean out our list. How awesome would it be if every class was in the game?
Very.

I don't see the point of having genders. Does it affect gameplay?

I would personally like to play a male healer if I play a healer at all, for example! Or, maybe a girl would like a warrior character. Or something else like that.

That's what the Paladin or Valkyrie was for Razz

Maybe if we make two classes roughly the same apart from different gender and then when you select the module it prompts you to select Paladin (Male) or Valkyrie (Female) for example. They would both carry out the same starter.

Exactly.
The skills can influence your direction, and there's enough variety that the rest can be left up to taste -- even though they ARE different.

For example, I want a Divine magic user.
So I could have a Paladin, Healer, Mystic, or Angel. Lotsa choices there. Two male, and two female.

Right, and that could build in with my suggestion.

...
No, no it couldn't.
It's... completely incompatible.
Unless I don't understand yours.

Like you could maybe choose the specifics, say Divine and female, and you would be listed any of the classes available that fit the specs.

Seems kinda pointless. Just let the player do the research ahead of time.
It's kind of part of the genre, right?

Well, I guess we could just make a male/female version of a character, and *possibly* call it a different name, like the Paladin/Valkyrie situation. As for general classes, like Adventurer or Soldier, just make the same class twice, but with different models, sounds, and messages. There would be little, if any, difference in stats.

No, the Valkyrie is an entirely different class. Not just a female Paladin.

Making all those models and skins would be a PAIN.
You wanna do it? Razz
