I see. Yeah, figured being "exceptional" is frowned upon by many of the posts I've read.

The concept of social suicide doesn't really stop my characters. They can see something just isn't done, but do it anyway... Kinda like an elf stealing. I understand the desire for world consistency, but my character will always do what he feels he must do, consequences be damned.

EDITED

Reason: possible disclosure of too much character detail, my mistake, I'm sorry.

Okay :)
Also, I like my cootch to have a pert pink color and nice smell. Knowing my luck I would bonk someone with AIDs, get rotten box, and die miserable.

Honestly, being the exception is fine so long as you brace for and accept the normal majority, and what they're going to do to you because of your exceptionalism.

It's the people who do the exception then rage about the consequences that are kinda lame  :-\

Indeed, ain't gonna rage. Consequences are part of the fun.

I wrote a post once about playing the exception.  In a nutshell, it's fine to do that, but there comes a point when your "playing the exception" with multiple characters has you "playing the exception" habitually, and we on staff would have to question exactly what is going on there.
Paint on a mustache and be a dude for a day. Stuff some melons down my shirt, cinch up a corset and pass as a girl.

With appropriate roleplay of course.

Luckily, there's nothing in ARM documentation discouraging me from making every character bisexual.  ;) I just can't quite get my head into how not to be.
I do wind up playing the weighted side of the statistics bin in certain things based around player personality / availability and not character ... playing certain gender, race, guild, clanning, focus if applicable, and interaction decisions ... it's enjoyable to fit what I wind up with into the world though, and still plenty of artistic room to explore varying forms of 'normal' (a character is definitely more interesting when they reflect their culture I'd say).

Someone already said this somewhere, but I think it deserves echoing:

Everyone's exceptional in a few ways, and normal in a bunch of others. As long as you're playing a character that's generally normal with just a few strange traits I don't think you should be wrecking people's immersion. If you are then it probably means your RP is unrealistically focused on your character's unusual traits, and you need to emphasize their normal traits a bit more.

There's absolutely nothing taboo about being bisexual on Arm.

The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I just keep coming back to this thread to laugh at the above gif.

For some reason it is hilarious to me.  :D

If I've been reading things correctly, which is a bit IF... It's because there's so little difference between humans and elves... Dwarves, on the other hand, to mate with humans require magickal intervention, then the mother dies and the offspring is infertile. A dwarf/elf breed would easily rival and destroy humanity, I'd figure, were it able to reproduce, even without some awesome psioinic blessing. Figure the game is all about the humans. A mixture of those races would render humanity obsolete.

All that said, an elven mul would be fun to see in the arena. But It'd likely end up a gith.

It sounds cool to me, but imagine for a second the elven fixation on taking things which would not be give if all the facts were known alongside the pull of a dwarven focus, and a wisdom which would suffer no or little penalty (compared to human) from the blending of the two races... Shit, that sounds cool as fuck to me, finally, all those purists would end up with something else to worry about... Something fucking scary.

One gets...
