If I remember my mythology correctly (and I could be wrong) Elves traditionally do not have facial hair.
Your correct sir.
<- see avatar - eyes only please
The only place I have seen elves with facial hair is in WoW and it just looks odd. Traditionally elves have no facial hair.
Elven Life cycle - Tolkien Gateway
That is well and great for Tolkien Lore. I have to play devils advocate though. Nothing about whether facial hair on elves is given in description to Ultima elves.
Elves - The Codex of Ultima Wisdom, a wiki for Ultima and Ultima Online
Infact the mention of the original elves for Ultima seems to try to distance Ultima elves from Tolkien elves. That being said and as much as I love elves I am also aware of Garriots wish for elves to not be a part of Ultima after part three.
Huh, guess beards did happen for elves...cool.
Add facial hair for elves. if people want to stick to the "lore" then leave your beard off?
While we are on this subject though, add gargish horn/color change!
Yeah totally, and give my human pointy ears too!
The answer is obvious:
Body hair impedes the wearing of tailored (in the sense of fitted) items, which is why hairy humans cannot wear elvish only items.
I agree 100% there.... Gargoyles not only need to add changes to horn color they also need a horn reshaper ..... I mean humans and Elves can both restyle their hair... they can color and dye it 100's of colors.... but Gargoyles are stuck once created. Heck Elves can even get a skin pigment change. But again gargoyles are stuck.
Elves do not shave as they dont need to...
IE lazy engineers, haha. I wonder if a short beard would comply with the graphics. should be able to log-in to UO with a human and drag any elf-wear over to see what it would look like w/ beard.
It's interesting how people have developed these broad ideas of what the lore should be ...and then cite D&D or Lord of the Rings.
I was never a fan of Elves to be honest... But with the new faction changes to the rank/point system I have recently turned a Human dexer into an Elf because there are no non-faction morph earrings [at least that I know of] and I want my Gotee back!
My elf has a beard In Game.....Just sayin
Edit: FYI anyone can get a beard (or any facial hair for that matter) on your elf and/or female character and maybe even a gargoyle (havent tried that one yet) Just need the old Clean-up Brit reward! If i wasnt lazy and knew how to id post a pic of mine but anyone can see it if they like just PM me, if im on i can meet you somewhere on ATL.
