    Piercings are pretty equal across all the races as they are. What happens if someone with horn piercings ends up reincarnating to another race? Or owns a gem?

    As cool as it could be, I think I have to agree that you should just add it into your description if you want something like that. It's not really practical, especially with things like earrings of Sinope. Pretty much everyone is stuck with the same amount of piercing slots and that ought to remain balanced.
    When you reincarnate any pierced places that no longer exist cause any jewellery there to fall into your inventory. Seems simple enough. You can't tell me a few extra piercing slots (not earring slots) will break combat.
    Also, any piercing slot can be used for earrings. Its not limited to your ears or anything like that.

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...


    ...But you'll always follow the voices beneath.

    So their points were even more moot then? Who cares if any race has an extra slot or two if it's really only cosmetic? I don't see why the 'bonus slots for race' can't be tied to race..

    No, she was pointing out that your "not earring slots" aside doesn't make sense, because earrings can be used in any piercing.

    And the answer to the second question? What does it matter if it's only cosmetic except for Sinope whores.

    It's also restricted to a race that you want that happens to be gender specific.

    @Trilliana, the amount of piercings you have doesn't change but I believe it doubles the slots available for rings, necklaces, bracelets, and all the rest.

    @Taraus can probably verify. ( Pretty please ? )

    No, ear piercings cap at 5 each, everything else pierce-able can only be done once/carry one piece of jewelry.

    (And for the record, I'm not entirely satisfied with the trait, because it does only double slots, so the cap is -two- necklaces, which... Tart should be wearing WAY more than that.)

    We were talking about rajas, xorans, and atavians appendages too.

    I once dated a guy that had so much metal in his face, going anywhere near the airport was all sorts of fun.

    Where does one draw the line? I can understand the cosmetic side of things, but it's just going to end up being ridiculous. Something like piercings should be the same across all races. There's nothing wrong with the current options, and people have always been free to add things into their description.

    Have you ever seen Rakon? That guy is a walking suit of armour without worn items. Ever taken a perv at Mizik? (I swear I only look at see if he has runes!) but he does similar. It's a fantastic way to add things to your character beyond the basic limitations, it helps give a character depth beyond treating them like a clothes prop to play dress up with.

    I'm sorry, but I just don't see the need to add in racial specific piercings.

    Yes, it's obviously possible to do this in your desc, Jonners has done this since ever all most. I still want it and don't see why not,

    I think the problem here is the coding. @Jonners wants to specify piercings where currently, are none.

    Any reason there can't be a lil more flexibility with piercing locations? For example, default is 5 for ears? So what if Jonners wants to move an ear slot to a horn slot? Or what if @Aepas wants to exchange an ear slot in order to pierce that pesky third nipple?

    Can this be done?

    If so, are people willing to pay CREDITS for it?

    Hmm...

    that seems like it would work, but still seems like the advantage would be super small. It seems like the only race that would have a good spot by default is satyr, and everything else would be kinda iffy/require admin oversight to implement effectively. Basically, it seems to me that the amount of work that would go into making such a system work would be way to high for the number of people that it would seriously benefit.

    Still seems to me the above proposed system would solve for a lot of the presented problems, though

    What do the admin care if some atavian pierces their wings or a raja their tail in ten places? It's all cosmetic. The idea about replacing a slot isn't bad. Just make sure that the slots allowed to be changed are race specific. 

    How is there a problem coding race specific things that don't apply when you're no longer that race? I just don't understand your reasoning that this would be difficult to code.

    I personally see it as adding one additional slot, tied to race, that is your horn/tail slot or whatever. Then all restrictions can work around the bonus slot.

    My earlier post was minorly misunderstood. My suggestion was NOT race-specific. It was simply for flexibility, so that the description of where a piercing was, exactly, could be customised BY AN INDIVIDUAL.
