Thoughts on NPC Designs

KaironBlackbard
My first thoughts go straight to Fauns, and how though they are a full race and not a magical or daedric creation, they all look the same with so difference between male or female.
That, and all the named Fauns are all Male, so where are the females? I would have thought you'd see some in Faun's Thicket, but if you can I can't tell the difference.
As a suggestion, all they really need to do is remove the antlers of the "female" Faun, as deer does don't have antlers.
Anyone have any other comments?
Admins? Thoughts?

    Should this have gone under lore?

    They are probably like Minotaurs where there are females but they're not pictured in-game. Actually, same with Giants... though, there are like... two I can think of.

    The forceful expression of will gives true honor to the Ancestors.

    It would be better if all the Faun weren't named as male, but female faun could definitely have antlers. They don't need to follow real-life biology. Plus, all reindeer have antlers

    Greetings,

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    We can tell who is who because the females still have their Antlers during New Life. :)
    Don't mind me. I never do.
