cool story, friend.
call your elin all the names you want, i don't care. adult elins(i explained the meaning of this term in a previous, older post already) or any sort of alternative race sharing the same/similar theme but with an appearance of a grown up would still be pretty awesome.
Mm...Think about this...If they did make Elins like this...The current armor (Leather, Heavy, Cloth)
ONE OF THIER APPEARANCES WOULD BE WEARING PANTS!!!(Or long shorts...I dont know why people call them long shorts I always viewed them as pants..helleven my friends say their shorts)
Something I would find awesome...BOYISH CLOTHING FTW YAY!!!!
Yet for an elegant body like that that dress suits it well...I would even think Mononoke Hime's look would bode well for them...It also will have to go for personality to matching with this but that aside...
Elins usually wear one peices or clothing with shorts right?...would be intrestingIm gonna try and use my imagination a bit
*On to imagining* *And thinking* *And Fantasizing*
If they make that a race, I think they should allow Human, HE and Castanic to fit it!
Ok let's say for whatever reason Elin are given bigger bodies, do you guys actually think that, that will make any difference as to how people see Elin? Well maybe it will, but odds are high that the difference would not be very big. Why? Well here's the thing that many over look, different cultural view's and barriers. Well to put it simply a person from next door may not see eye to eye with you. Now translate that on the scale of the world.
Elin original, unedited version is nothing special in far eastern culture... heck people in JP try to copy anime/manga looks to such an extent, that it dwarfs all the girls/boys trying to copy Justin Beaver... And yet here it make's a wave of ripples. People keep forgetting that TERA is a translation of a far eastern game, as such after all westernization it will still largely reflect the eastern culture.
tl:dr... you are playing a eastern game in the western world. an open mind is needed. few people share opinions.
