Well, is it the name of her "race" or a job description/nickname? I think this is slightly confusing.

It should be a racial trait typical of those people, so yes race. Like for example they could be all born with red hairs, or skin with a red color. It could also simply be the name of people living in a specific area, or following a cult. I think is better if I ask the writer since I made a bit of a mess :lol:

It's being respectful to those who have, in the past, really liked people to not have used the term "redskins" to describe a race of people. The fact that the art doesn't look Native American per se, could be considered the same insult as Johnny Depp (white man) playing a Native American in the new Lone Range movie. It's called white-washing (that movie role could have gone to someone who is actually Native American), or in some cases, playing "red-face" (similar to black-face, which is hugely insulting to black people). Not only could someone see that you're using a disparaging slang for a race (on top of the unfortunate wording of calling them sub-human), but not even depicting them as a people of color as the slur implies? It could be like two slaps to the face.

If you really are Native American, then I apologize for explaining myself to you. But to some Native Americans, this is an actual issue with the media appropriating/bastardizing their culture. Do I think Jack was doing this? No. It was an accident but problematic all the same. I don't care if it stays the same and nothing changes, just letting him know that there are those who could find this insensitive.
I understand not wanting to unnecessarily offend anyone, but I also understand that you can just as easily offend someone unintentionally just by putting pen to paper.

Regarding the name, why go with a compound name to begin with rather than the simplified ‘reds’? It’s short, sweet, and to the point without any ambiguous ‘blood’ or ‘hair’.

Yes that's true, that might work too. Thanks for the suggestion :)

weeeellllll ...... in Loren you invented "male amazons" which are somewhat a contradiction, too. So a "male sister" should not be a problem for your games :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

Sisters of the sands is such a cool name I agree, if it'll fit with the story being written, that would be a great name to go with.

today I'm facing a hard decision for Krimm, the BxG muscular character. I think brown hair and black eyes looks good (maybe even brown eyes).

When I first heard about her, I assumed she was going to be the GxG option, but after seeing more about Chalassa, I'm glad she is our GxG option. :)

What you don't like the big bad muscular woman? :lol:
Jokes apart I made that choice because I got several requests from male players for different, more muscular women, some complaining that Loren despite the description wasn't really BIG BAD MUSCULAR (I have to agree even if I prefer her that way myself :lol:). Muscles apart I still find Krimm attractive personally.

I've also changed Rowinda face in the previous post adding wrinkles, now I think she looks "old enough" :)
