One of my Christmas presents this year was a gift card, which I promptly used to reinstate my Eve Online account. I decided to start from scratch and create three new characters, hoping to find one that sticks.
The first new character I created was Erinn Ferguson, a Gallente field tech
I didn’t realize that you could modify the wireframe subtly when I created her, and so she looks kinda young to me (maybe 18 or 19).
Next, I created Tom O’Malley (a Gallente shipping magnate):
This one, I made as close to me as I could, given the limits of the client and apparently my video card (or lack thereof).
Then there is my newest character which I just made this week. This is Mila Shardani, a True Amarr. I haven’t decided what I’m doing with her yet.
This one I gave all of the sexy. Since she is Amarr, I gave her a little modesty, or else I would also have made her wearing as little clothing as I felt I could get away with.
There are some who would criticize me for this, as if I’m misleading people into thinking that I’m a woman.
First of all, I half-jokingly tell people that since the perspective as you play these characters is in the third person, I would rather stare at a woman’s ass all day than a man’s ass.
Secondly, I am reminded of a joke I read somewhere, “The internet: Where the men are boys, the women are men, and the children are FBI agents.” In other words: caveat emptor.
Thirdly, I don’t play the female characters any differently than I do the male characters. Essentially, they are males with boobs.
What do you think?
