Eschalon Book II: Gender Differences In Character Creation
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Basilisk Games continues work on Eschalon: Book II, the second in its "old school" RPG series which hearkens back to computer role playing games of yesteryear. A recent post on the official forums reveals that, in keeping with the old school theme, the game will offer different bonuses for male and female characters. Unlike the first game in the series Book II will allow players to create either a male or female protagonist.

MALE:
While exceptions do exist, males are generally larger than females. With greater body mass, males on average tend to possess higher maximum strength than females. Selecting to play a male character grants you a +1 Strength bonus.

FEMALE:
Females tend to be of smaller build than males. With less body mass and a slighter frame, females are often more nimble and graceful than males, resulting in a +1 Dexterity bonus.
Read more at the link below about the reasoning behind the decision to include gender differences in the game.
