Within days of first launching the 2021 Quest Calendar, I got some comments about the heroes that are available.
Some were disappointed that there weren't enough male characters. With the latest stretch goals, we were able to add 2 new male characters. We are now balanced with 3 males and 3 females.
There were also some comments about the oversexualized nature of the women and unvaried body shape used. This is a very delicate subject for many people, especially in fantasy. I had to discuss this with my wife. Ultimately, I decided not to change the images. I must be careful when discussing my opinion in public. If you leave a comment, please be respectful of others.
Lastly, there were other comments about the skin color of the heroes. With only 4, they were predominantly white or light skin. I did agree that this could exclude many and wanted to have a more diverse selection for others to choose from. Once we unlocked the Paladin, we got a darker skinned character of a nondescript origin.
I still felt like we could do better. So, I worked with my artist to make changes for our Druid. I hope this is suitable and more inclusive for others.
Again, these subjects can be delicate for others. If you choose to leave a comment, please be respectful.
Thanks and fruitful questing, adventurers!
