    I doubt anyone who voted for one gender would be glad to find it looking much like another.
    So it's better to take 3rd option exactly as it is, not as a universal way to "expand selection" for everyone.

    I picked androgynous hoping for a creepy looking one like this from NWN



    I wouldn't play this that type of character, but I would love to hear a story on the boards about a crazed half-elf sorcerer king running the Green Belt :P

    Or this hard-to-describe rogue as a master of disguises (Also NWN)



    I agree that it's a distinct 3rd option that has it's own place in making interesting characters.

    Damnit, now I have my mental character creation engine set for androgynous portrait options.

    A Half-Elf Sorcerer Transmutation specialist with the Aberrant bloodline. Why would they consider gender as anything other than part of another temporary shape?

    It's interesting that so much of the conversation here is vocally in support of male, but by a narrow margin the actual votes are going towards female.

    I will gladly accept any result, but i have voted for female version, since in roleplaying games i tend to play as females much more often.

    Also, androgyny in case of extra portrait would be nice, but i hope that looking at the default portraits i will be able to easily distinguish male from female.

    Sometimes the most vocal fans are in the minority. Mass Effect is a great example. There's a very passionate fan base that loves to talk about Femshep (and hate on Maleshep because of his voice actor). But only 20% of players play as a female Shepard.

    One thing I'd like to know is, if it's possible to commission the artist that makes the portrait(to death at our number?) if we want a portrait that isn't included.
    What do you call a dragon who ate a bunch of adventurers? A party-pooper!
    If you Awaken a chicken, is it speaking fowl language?
    What do you say when a treefolk betrays you? Tree-son!

    Female
    26 voters, 39.39%

    Male
    22 voters, 33.33%

    Androgynous
    18 voters, 27.27%

    So I guess the entitled $40+ backers get another female portrait for their enjoyment. Ah well.
    Still was worth a try with the androgynous 80's Rock Star suggestion. :P

    i picked a dude, purely because i am a dude and generally play as a dude. and i will never pick androgynous. i've been to thailand and i assure you that mistaking genders is only funny when it happens to someone else.

    Right, the poll is closing very soon and it looks like we're looking at a lady half-elf sorcerer. I shall fire up the bloodline poll as soon as this one finishes. :)
