Embracing the Beard
+7

If at some point, my Hrothi embraces his inner beard, and lets it grow, as a Count or Baron is this likely to upset the citizens; if indeed such a thing is possible.

It seems logical that it would be possible, unless this feature is being disabled for risk of licensing clashes with other D&D groups?

Also, when we make statues, will 'bearding' them be possible, or even graffiti?

I'm sure most player hrothi will grow their beards out so you just need to convince the npcs. Hopefully if the king and nobility grow a beard it will influence hrothi culture

Do we even know that the Hrothi Can grow beards? Real, full grown, beards.

You would think generations of beard cutting would eventually breed out the ones that grow nice looking beards, and leave the scraggly few.

Yes, Snipehunter has mentioned(in discord) they can grow beards, but as a culture there is no point to it, it is seen as sort of childish and antisocial thing to grow a beard in Hrothi culture.

I think the core “Roman” Hrothi will not/should not grow beards. But rebels and the wild Hrothi should. I also hope they allow us to knit beards to put on Hrothi statues as a protest.

If my character can't grow a beard naturally, I'll staple a canis-rabbit pelt to my face!

It has probably been mentioned somewhere. But if you can't create a bearded Hrothi character, you could opt for a short bearded Brudvir. We know they're hairy. :D

Plan B: Go as short as you possibly can at character creation. Then find a Hrothi wife, and keep breeding for shortness with each subsequent heir until you have your very own clan of midget Brudvir with epic beards.

Childish and antisocial will no doubt resonate with a lot of players.

I'm not really expecting much from the whole growing hair/beards etc, no matter the tribe. I remember before witcher 3 came out. It was talked you could grow hair in it. Now while maybe you can on some level. It's nothing much really. Not like some were picturing anyway. I really wouldn't expect CoE to be any different.

If I'm a hrothi I'm growing a beard. I don't know the whole culture of hrothi around beards but cultures can change. Long live beards!

...if not growing a beard is a thing...that means shaving is a thing...which means hair grows...which means barbers are a profession. How totally weird and cool to have in game.

In our Dwarven themed counties all NPC's will be forced to wear beards and like it, like some kind of Dwarven Taliban.

I guess SBS want to avoid the common prejudices against dwarves, like always eating and drinking, being loud and having the pieces of the last meal in the unkempt beard. Besides Hrothi aren't considered dwarves by SBS. ^^

I think Hrothi should be able to have a beard as long as you have a good rp reason for that.

For example a Hrothi who is on a very important voyage might grow a beard simply because he doesn't have the time and also wants to indicate that he has much more important matters going on at the time.

Similarly a Hrothi that is out for revenge or is griefing over a lost one could also grow a beard (temporarily).
