The poor runts don't get any respect.
Per me si va nella citta dolente.
Per me si va nell eterno dolore.
Per me si va tra la perduta gente...

I'm always male human, no matter of class. I once tried to play female elven acrher but realized very soon that I couldn't roleplay a girl.

Roleplaying someone of the opposite gender or sexual orientation is impossible for me to enjoy. Which is odd, because I can write for either a male or female character.

Thank you for mods out there that give female characters better options.

What race do you play?

300m dash. :D

Sowwy, couldn't resist!  :lilly

I use elves and half elves a lot, but humans are way more fun what with the dual-classing and all ^.^' I just use the SK to change their appearance because all human avatars except female thief look like they're bloated or something  ::) :D

Lately I play elves all the time, but use SK to make myself human temporarily so I can use Mortis' race changing kit so I can be a vampire, elf, and a monk.  Yeah, I play weird...

Play as a vampire? That would be cool.

That it would. I wonder if you get vampire powers like level drain.

Elf because there are more portrait options for them.
When a man speaks and there is no woman to hear him, is he still wrong?

For the faithful romantic, no explanation is necessary. For the unbeliever, no explanation is possible.

Not very good reason since all those portrait sites provide us with tons of decent portraits of all races ;D
Evil hidden everywhere
Evil has a chilling stare
Null and void of any care
Is where the answer lies
It does no good to beg or cry
It does no good to question why
It does no good it never dies

Not really. Most of them are poor quality and don't match one another. Nwn is the only reliable source of high-quality racial choices portraits. And even they don't have any good fighter male drow portrait. I'm tired of looking for one, that does not look emanciated or like a recolored human or naked or have 'do not use' tag on it.

If you think it's tough finding a fighter portrait, you should try a cleric! Ever darned portrait either depicts someone who is either very old, wields a sword, is dog-ugly, violent, or entirely inappropriate. Or the portrait includes obviously Christian/Templar symbolism.

I had no problems with Clerics, but I will take your word on it -  I havn't *yet* looked for a male cleric. But Gavin looks nice!
