What would you like to see out of the character creation system for TESO? Not in terms of classes, but in physical appearance. What would you like to see in place that could make your character unique? Scars, Beards, Jewellery etc. What about other features that you could change as the game progressed?
Personally, as a side note, I really liked the Age of Conan vanity slots so that you could equip awesome armour, but give it the appearance of what ever you wished through the separate slots. Made RP so much better.

I really hope you can change the little things, so you make it your own way and indeed it's so much more fun for the roleplayers among us.

Very fluid sliders that change the shape, length, depth, etc. of facial features so that you can really sculpt a unique character that has his/her individual look. Lots of hairstyles and colors including highlight colors. Lengthening and shortening of hairdos. Many eye colors, eye shapes, brow height & shapes, lash thickness & length. Scars, tats, beards, earrings, hair jewels & ribbons, facial jewelry. In gold or silver.

Large difference in height scale dependent upon racial parameters. Adjustment of heavy, medium or thin to various body parts. Ability to change arm & leg muscledness and length. Choice to sculpt hands - a caster would want different hands from a sword wielder than from an archer.

A choice of maybe 5 different starter outfits to wear for each Class - 5 different beginning mage robes, 5 different ranger leather armors, etc. Or at least 3 different beginner outfits per class so that everybody isn't running around Starters-ville clothed the same.

Scars as you play would be nice but its something that can go very bad. Fable for example had your character scar over time and by the end of that pretty short game your character looked horrendous

From what I've seen and read the creation is nice and varied. I'd like to see some character voice selections, even though I'm not sure how much speaking a character does.

I would like to point out that all TES games have had a few basic grunts and such for the player character, which would vary depending on race, but aside from that never really had any vocals for the character. Not that adding some more voices to the game is a bad thing, I think it'd be really cool, just remember it's been done before and works really well.

Fight for something to die for, because living for nothing really isn't worth it.

Absolutely. While it's not much of a problem that we'll likely be silent, I think a little group shouting would be great. Like in Bioware games " You didn't stand a chance!" or " I could really use some help here!"
Both sides of the fight shouting occasionally would really bring the battle to life.

Yeah, what they showed of the character creation looked really good. The triangle slider was intriguing, and the sheer number of total sliders bodes well for people who like to get very in depth with their character creation.

I'm hoping they have lots of different hair styles, especially longer ones. ^-^

I don't really need voices. They drive me a little crazy in other games. XD

Mowhawks! defiantly Mohawks.... If a man can't run around swinging a battle axe with a Mr-T voice. shouting "I aint gettn on no plane fool" then the reality Is just not there! And ESO is a downhill spiral from there.

I played lots of fable key is to be a beast and not get hit but it doesn`t really apply to this so I see your point

One thing that I found unsettling was that there were rather lore-breaking options. I swear to God I saw green as an option for Dunmer eyes. Sure, you could RP your character as having an Altmer father, or that you have some blessing or curse, but I fear that I'll see a million green-eyed Dark Elves running about....


By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

Im more concerned about the locked zones and partitioning of tamriel which is more lore breaking.
