If we take the Racial rule (you MUST look like your race) as a guideline, you MUST look like your gender. So, ¿what does it mean to 'look' like a woman? a man? Once upon a time, it was a matter of skirts and cosmetics - well, lotsa women wear britches, and lotsa men wear make-up. So, if Hengin the Barabarian is wearing a kilt (he does, by the way - it's way swank), is ¿he breaking the "no dressing up as something you're not rule"? If the system is designed so that any player can look and instantly know what they're looking at, ¿where does that leave the confused issue of PC/Character gender-bending? When I look at a person in pants and a loose shirt, my Character should instantly know their Race and Gender, but ¿what if the Player can't tell?Toddo said:The rules about disguise are for IG trying to pass as another race. You are allowed IG to dress as a member of the opposite sex. The question here is about playing against your OOG gender.
I'm not saying this is an issue. Most PCs are dressed in either a fairly androgenous or slightly Medieval-masculine manner; and the "No Sexism in Alliance" rule makes any difference basically moot. I'm just saying it's a sticky wicket.
