So, animal features in fantasy races.
Where do you draw the line?
Depends. For a player character that I'm self inserting into. I'd prefer to have minimal animal features such as ears or a tail. Anything like the khajit or other anthropomorphic humanoid is not okay. The only exception to non-minimal animal features is if there are wildly different abilities, like wolf form Link.
No. 4, but the body needs more defining features than just an animal head and a tail with the rare different feet. Look at Tortanic and Scrollocaust, each race in that practically shares an identical body shape for each gender. That shit is awful.
So is the modded hair on that Khajiit.
Having a beast race where the females look too much like humans is also lame as shit if they're supposed to not be related in the fluff, but I'd say No. 3 is probably the least bad offender I've seen in this regard.
Some lion race from a Korean MMO I forgot the name of
I wish to make babies with female Phantom Lancer
Things you didn't think you needed in your life.
Humans with cat ears and a tail is bad, the khajit with a human's body and hair but a cat's head and fur is worse.
It'd be nice if devs could make interesting fantasy races but they never do. Didn't bethesda even remove the beast races can't wear boots? What the fuck man.
I guess the middle one is different enough to be interesting.
Originally, Argonians and Khajiit aren't even suppose to be playable in Morrowind, and they added as playable at the very last second due to popular demand. Even before that, both races were capable of wearing boots in Daggerfall.
Everquest does it well in most instances, races like Iksar have humanoid bodies but aren't proportioned the same way humans are, Ratonga are nicely done as well.
Neither race is given human "hair" either.
Pictured are Iksar concepts for EQ Next which at this rate is probably stuck in development hell.
>fur all over is not
But it's soft, i like soft
ff14 also does beast races alright, if only they applied the same design ideology to the playable races.
While I can understand this viewpoint if you're trying to fantasize about them, "human with cat ears" is a shitty, lazy race design and panders to fetishists more than any sort of standard animal hybrid does.
Fluffy tail is alright. When you get into khajit/standard furfag territory it is not.
I like things that I like, and I also like things my dick likes. I don't see any need to pretend otherwise.
Eastern devs are shitty about this, plain and simple. I was amazed when I first played EQ and it let me pick a goddamn lizard. Woman even. Without tits.
It was like they actually cared about their setting or something and weren't just trying to generate fapbait.
As long as you ignored the big tittied elves, but hey, can't win 'em all.
Just make your girlfriend wear a cat ear hat and maybe a tail connected to the pant or buttplug. It doesn't make it anymore of a cat.
And you're being a pussy for not going all the way. Whoopty Fuckin Doo
I've always found it immersion breaking when confronted with something clearly designed to be fanservice. I'll take something competently designed over devs trying to taunt my dick anyday.
Fluffy tail is all that is needed.
I guess so long as it doesn't have a snout I am fine with it. Snouts are too far.
The average functional person disagrees
I have no problem with anthropomorphic creatures in my vidya OP, although I do acknowledge the fact that the rabid furry community will inevitably tarnish the game once they get their
But being functional requires that, anyone else is clearly malfunctioned.
Any games where I can play as a moth?
It turns out Gazer is the cutest monster girl.
>Use shoggoth cloth to wash shoggoth dishes
>Rubbing 2 of her clits together
>[watery sounds intensify]
Same artist that did Alice, but no
There is a line to be drawn between beastmen and furries. If the only thing that seperates the race form normal humans is the fact that they have fur, it's a furfag race. Beastmen should always have their own culture be it tribal or otherwise.
Also an octopus
So how come Monster Girls are accepted here while furry is not? I'm honestly curious
They were basically created around the same time
Ancient Greek and Rome. Is it because the Japanese took a liking to the former and it's okay when Japan does it?
>Fucking with cats
Not a good move bruv
Tail and ears only.
Some fur might be tolerable in rare cases.
I don't draw the line in fantasy races because if a game wants literal Thundercats or just talking cats then that's fine. Playable frog/lizard niggas are always based.
Sexually, 1-3 is good.
>people still call nagas lamias
CAN NOBODY INTO FUCKING MYTHOLOGY
>tfw no game will ever have a qt centaur companion that serves as combat role and as means of transportation
If its just cosplay its out of the question.
Talking animals are fine. Talking animals (like the cat on the right) being treated as sex objects is creepy. But as far as talking "animals" that look sexy; 1-3 are fine. 4 is dangerously furry and 5 is "literally bestiality" tier.
>mfw thats my fetish
>mfw i totally loved that doujinn
>tfw sandworm qt is my waifu
If anything there are too many feline races in fantasy games.
I personally would like to play as a fox race that are a kind of sneaky archers and Huntsman, who are smaller and stature than normal humans.
Not a furfag, I just like the idea of playing as a creature that is more down to earth and tied to nature.
I also like the idea of playing as a minority, but I don't want to play as an actual nigger.
>posting slut cat
It's like you want this thread to get pruned and/or deleted.
Even 2 goes too far for me, since from the waist up she kinda works, but from the waist down she's an animal. Give me ears, give me fluffy tail, maybe she can have paws for feet but the animal aspect shouldn't go up past the knee and I'm less forgiving for hands.
Females look stupid as anthros. It just doesnt work for some reason.
Males are great.
>there are people on /v/ who don't think lizardmen are best beastrace
>Friend convinces me to pick up the Neverwinter MMO
>Aww fuck yeah, dragon race!
>See they're locked
>Well I guess I could drop a couple bucks to unlock them-

First Au''ra not being actual dragons, now this shit.
The number of pics I can post without getting banned is...limited.
>'Murrica wakes up
>Thread goes full furfag
Welp, i'm out
If he comes free when it becomes obviously arbitrary.
Hand people a book of Redwall written by Brian Jaques and they will understand the world and what it's supposed to be within a few chapters.
Hand the same people a book written by an actual furry and within the first couple of pages they will start to ask "why is everyone a dog person? You could switch everyone out with an actual human and the story would be the same, I don't understand."
Nothing wrong with liking cute animal people.
>tfw no games with playable bird race
>playable Tengu were cut from development at the last minute in favor of walking salads
>currently there are no plans to bring them back
It's still way too human-looking and falls right into the uncanny valley, because they didn't want to go full beast-mode. I hate designs like this. Go all the way or don't bother.
If there's a snout I out!
Seriously how the fuck can you look at a muzzle and the completely wrong proportions of an animal face and still be attracted?
What the fuck is broken in your brain furfags?
Would you accept this guy in your party?
Thats just kinda weird looking. That doesnt look like a fox face.
>they're all evil and have a hive mind
This is my fox archer from Skyrim.
The lilmothiit are supposed to be extinct. Also that facial structure doesn't have enough blend of human and animal. It's too animal for my taste. Increase the size of the eyes and give them more human eyeballs, that would be a start.
That hair looks awful.
Hair doesnt belong on foxes.
Why don't more fighting games have more beastlike animal characters?
>going into a furry thread
>being suprised its full of furries
I mean, I'm not sure what you were expecting...
The line is drawn at the hip
If the hips are perpendicular to the legs he sexual organs are bestial
The mod I use for canine characters has it's own fluff that lilmothiit were part of a broader canine race called lykaios, which also includes wolf/dog-like beings. Lykaios live in hidden caves scattered around Tamriel, and they are supposed few in number so they're rarely seen (which I know is suspiciously convenient).
Also, Lilmothiit didn't exactly go extinct, either-- they are believed to be extinct due to having been purged from Black Marsh, where they were most common. For the purposes of the Lykaios mod they are at least shown to not be extinct though.
Not that anything truly goes extinct when there are mods around. I have a Dwemer.
As long as the face is human and at least 50% of the body is human, I love races that are a little bit beastly or half-human.
I especially love Lamias and Merfolk, really wish there were more of them in games and especially more playable ones. Imagine slithering and sneaking around through trees and underbrush and tight places as a Lamia then seizing someone in your muscular coils.
I don't think any games have a playable minotaur
This is exactly why the Metroid Prime games are awesome. They love to subvert tropes like this.
Bless his heart
Sorry anons but these are terrible.
I wish more games had more playable beasts or hell, any non-human creatures in general. Humans are so boring. I play video games to do/be things I can't do in real life.
Why did Daggerfall have the best iteration of Argonians?
At least in Skyrim they had good facial structures.
Sexy serpent people.
Are always evil
>You will never go on an adventure with a fun-sized Kobold adventurer as the two of you develop a close bond
The more reptilian they are, yes. Lamias can be good or evil.
I wasn't a big fan of how the famales looked so I modded them with the Argonian Female Refined mod, and the Feminine Argonian texture mod.
I really like all the monster designs in this game. Too bad the game itself sucks.
She's a rodent I would ravish.
>no wanting to be in the coils of a handsome Lamia, or be a handsome Lamia and wrap people in your coils
In general I wish Bethesda would make better looking beast race models, but to be fair Skyrim was a big step up from Oblivion in terms of how they looked aesthetically. Maybe with TES6 we'll actually get some beast races that look good out of the box and don't need a half dozen mods just to make a qt Khajiit girl (though there will pretty much always be room for improvement with mods).
>Burd and lzrd together
Sauce now please.
Best furry artists? I'm quite fond of Nezumi and Sunibee myself. Their art just speaks to me on a primal level.
I only wish there were more japanese furry artists because I don't normally go in for random picture gallery faps. The quality is so inconsistant.
Two questions. Is it translated and is there source?
>play video games to do/be things you can't on real life
>wanting to be a worthless furry
Every singly non-human race in video games should either be replaced with humans or killed on the spot, no exceptions.
>"Where do you draw the line?"
Are you one of those people who thinks humans aren't animals because we're "smart?"
ovopack, nullghost, snowskau, and pic related.
I know I shouldn't be shilling my character again but we can only rely on mods when it comes to creativity. Imagine spending 6 months of your life to create a thick Argonian and losing all interest after having taken a few screenshots.
I believe I've done a good job with this and I really don't want to stop now.
They also need to man up and give them beast-like paw feet.
Fuck anon, you are making me want to play Skyrim again, but I fucked up transferring my mods over to my new computer.
Guoh draws the sexiest tummies.
3 is hottest but I could go 4 too.
Either way, shit, there's not enough games with fox or wolf people.
>You can fuck humans. You can't fuck anything else.
You're a funny guy, anon.
>when humans are the most amazing, wonderful beings in both reality and fiction
>furfaggot shit, which is just humans slapped together lazily with the features of stupid, garbage animals, is somehow more "interesting" as opposed to being an obnoxious perversion
If you hate humans that much, why don't you just kill yourself?
You clearly, do not know what it truly means to be human.
>You can fuck humans. You can't fuck anything else.
There are digitigrade mods for Skyrim but I went back to plantigrade feet after a while, partially because no-one makes armor / clothing mods with digitigrade feet in mind but also because I was fine with plantigrade feet anyway.
I hear you about game installs, though-- Nexus keeps nagging me to reinstall Skyrim so that it can switch me over to the new profiling system, but I'm kind of terrified of all the crap I will have to deal with in re-constructing my game build with the new NMM system. I already did a fresh Skyrim build a few months ago and it's been working fine, and I'm not in the mood to fiddle around with all that again.
>there will never be playful vore video game with gigantic snake girl
Mythra were pushing it for me with their cat noses, but Miqo'te are perfect.
What if its an animal human thats smarter than you?
I'd rather play as a robot in a video game, than yet another human. But even then, most of the time it's shit, and they never let you go full crazy with customization and replacing your body with cannons and other shit.
>when humans are the most amazing, wonderful beings in both reality and fiction
How are humans the most amazing things in fiction?
I genuinely like the first one. The third one is also acceptable.
Number 4 and 5 are absolutely disgusting though and its clear whoever did it is a sick fuck.
Number 2 is terrible but I can't hate it because it reminds me of some old 80s cartoons.
The line is clearly when it becomes an animal.
Mithra were better. Miqo'te are typical Japanese being scared of admitting they like kemono so they don't give them animal noses.
>only beast character in the party
It's like some weird trade-off that always happens.
>fans will deny being closet furfags
No denying here. I fap to anything hot, whether monster girl or furry. Even save furry chicks in my monster girl folder.
Its not like you cant beat FFX with anyone.
Why does Garr have to be shit? Frog in CT is mediocre too.
Don't push it, creep.
The Charr are a good example of a beast that doesn't look like re-colored humans.
Just watch the anime. It's pretty good.
All he can do is copy from video games and second life because he has that autistic memory of his.
His anatomy is pretty bad if he's not copying a body shape and all of his years using game assets as references has given in the very angular style.
At least the make up for it with the porn.
Because they were a bunch of assholes?
Same can be said about the Galka and Roegadyn.
