Edit opening post 12.01.2019

After 33 pages of discussions, it has come out what I have suggested here would take a huge amount of time and some suggestions were certainly not viable or didn't sound viable. Also, some players are against this due to better updates in the future for the game or were against unisex head/bodies.

I still feel though a few more character body shapes to choose from, plus a unisex head would be a grand update for the game. I believe it would be well used and was wondering if it would be an option of a one-off payment to give your character a few more body shapes options in-game and a separate payment for a unisex head? Which would counteract the cost of all the work required?

- A unisex head would be both the male and female heads we have now combined so we can create them the way like. To add to this, wouldn't it be nice if we had different eyes, mouth, noses to choose from?

- We have male and female bodies in-game, adding a few more body shapes could consist of taller, shorter, fatter, slimmer etc
I am a A List :D WOOT WOOT for me :D

Right now, there are two character models, male human and female human.

If you add any more, then every single item of clothing and armour in the game has to be updated for each new category.

That is a MASSIVE amount of work for very little benefit, which is why it hasn't been done.

Isn't about time we are able to have no specific Gender Characters in-game?

I also read in another thread a person suggested we have other creatures as our character, so we don't have to resemble a human, we could be trolls, slayer creature, a god minion etc - your thoughts.


I'm all for this - the more customization, the better, in my opinion!

The non-human character thing is also a great idea, but would probably require a lot of work to implement in a way that wasn't just simply like a character skin or a cosmetic override... as I'd love to see trolls or other things have a different style of play than humans.

At any rate, super interesting idea, it'd be great to be able to mix and match anything! However, as was pointed out, the way the character models work, this could be a huge undertaking.

Different in game races, keep it at that if anything. Don't need that BS polluting Runescape, there's already "gender neutral" toilets in the real world, once you open the door to those sort of topics it's never ending.

I don't think OP is trying to be overly "PC" or anything about this... I think they simply want more customization options and the ability to pick from either male or female and mix and match.

Please don't make this a politicized thread when it does not need to be. This thread has the potential for some great feedback, and I'd hate to see it derailed by making it into a "right vs. left" debate.

I'm not, I saw the word gender and took it for what it was and that is how it comes across. Like I said, I can see an arguement to be made in regards to allowing a player to choose specific in game races IE. dwarves, trolls etc. etc. but don't see much point in what appears to be being suggested.

I would love to be an Imp weilding some sort of weapon and using it to do slayer tasks.

Not sure if it can be done anytime soon but I hope in the future when Jagex has the time and team something can be added to sort this out.

Nothing big to start with. Maybe 10 races and build on that.

I would pay more membership. Not much more as I like my grandfathered rate but a little more to help out with the cost.
