Honestly I don't think malak can fathom that perhaps if people didn't treat trans people as 'outsiders' that they'd fair better.

I remember one of the players in my former group once boasted on his facebook that he's played such a variety of gendered and non-gendered beings that he didn't even see the sex of an RPG character. I replied that I didn't think statblocks had genders either. I don't think that's what he meant, and he didn't reply after that.

All the APs feature a bunch of dungeon crawls, so mounted combat is probably not going to work terribly well. If you want to play with animals, you're best off with a summoner. That way you don't have to explain how you brought your mount up the side of a mountain.


Taking the Narrow Frame on your mount helps a lot.

@Malak: Yes, how dare they add a memorable trait to a NPC. It is after all propaganda to acknowledge the existence of trans people.


I read multiple pathfinder APs, and played some. This is the only one I can remember that not only includes such specific NPC sexual references, but harps about them multiple times.

Anevia can be whatever, but

there is no sentence in the history part that does not focus on the gender transformation.



Pretending to be a woman while hiding out from the law isn't a transgender thing. It's an sitcom thing.

Making it permanent using magic is just a fantasy thing.

Fashions in clothing, hairstyles, and espoused belief come and go. Taking any of them too seriously is an error.
