A more serious question:
Are the centaurs more wilderness-oriented in this game? Or are some of them more likely to reside in cities, towns, etc?

If I look at the female centaur I actually think she is more martial/barbarian inclined, whereas the male centaur seems...well, if not more urban, but maybe in a tribe that deals with towns, etc.

Depending which it is, that could certainly dictate certain things like hair styles, etc. If one is in a more martial group, they may not be as inclined to fuss with their hair all day. Not that there is anything wrong with a more martial group also favoring cosmetics.

I haven't decided anything right now but I'm more inclined towards the wilderness-oriented. We have already many races that stay in towns (dwarves, elves, even dark elves stay in villages). Being centaurs would make sense that they're nomad since they can cover long distances rather quickly :)
To be honest I'm not 100% sure if they'll be in SOTW, since depends on writer, but worse case they'll be in Loren 2 :)

Wilderness makes sense as well.

And even if they don't show up in SoTW, at least they will still exist in the greater world.

With the hint you gave about Loren 2 in the society thread, one could almost see a small country of people enslaving centaurs, viewing them as a 'beasts of burden', while Loren, having freed the slaves in Amazon territory, might take a dim view of this ;)

Now here's a centaur from Paizo's Kingmaker Adventure Path I wouldn't mind romancing...

We don't have to worry about this one being a refugee from an 80's male hair metal band. :P Hmm...maybe the centaurs in SotW are all 80's hair metal fans? :P

Female centaur?

WANT!!!!

Can we romance her as the female character? I don't care if she looks a bit masculine, I like that!

I'm with Miakoda on this one; not every character needs to be über-masculine/feminine (or even attractive).
It's certainly nice to see some androgynous women, considering we already have a lot of men with more soft, feminine features in Winter Wolves games.

PS: 80's hair metal is awesome

I too hope that someday in the future, when we venture the world of Aravorn yet again, we would have a chance to befriend and even romance a centaur as stunning as Auris. When you think about it, on the romance with extraordinary races plate there are already succubi, vampires, nagas and even a race as unprecedented as half-lizard half-elf (whatever it may be called). Centaurs fit right in, I'd say.

Yes I agree. It's just a matter of writing/drawing the stories, since I have a big backlog of stuff to finish first :mrgreen:
