    Okay, it's really great that there are at least 2 classes that feature Native American avatars. And it's even better that there are Indian Necklaces and I was absolutely thrilled when the Tomahawk weapon came out. Now, I used search first, but did not find anything on this topic. So, all we need now is Native American shirts and hats! Any comments to this thread are welcome! :) And if this has already been brought up or mentioned, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Okay, then allow me to show you the following picture:

    This guy (Waupee) is wearing a deer skin shirt. And there is another picture that I will post here. But first, I have to find it in another thread.

    Edit: The first image shows a deerskin shirt, like I just mentioned. This could be a type of shirt you can equip and wear. The second image shows the Irkatchi chief. He is wearing a feather headdress. This could be an example of a Native American 'hat' that you can equip.

    What bonuses for the headdress? Arrogance? (negative) Hiding? Shooting?

    So the two types of apparel you want to implement are deer-skin shirt and the indian Apache Headdress. Can you come up with more and specify the bonuses?

    Okay, so here are a few ideas for head gear, from what I have researched so far: roach headdresses in multiple colors, feathered headbands, and of course, several different types of feather headdresses. I am still working out the cost and bonuses of these items and I will add more items as my Native American clothing research progresses...

    Dude we can't see those, you have to upload them into Imageshack.

    Anyway I think this is a good idea.

    Of course if they were implemented, it would be the generic Native American costume that the average person envisions, which isn't accurate for more than a handful of tribes, whose customs and dress varied hugely. Think depictions in 1950s Westerns.

    I am always in favor of new clothes :)

    Edit: only if it's available to all classes and not being made especially for a sub-class.

    They can't really make any item "subclass" specific because it's just an avatar and it would be completely unfair when the only reason you picked the avatar was because you like the way it looked, although some pick them for RP reasons. Anyway, if a soldier can wear a mix of Union and Confederate gear, he might as well be able to mix in a Crow War Bonnet as well.

    It could be good. I think "war bonnet" should be generic, as bonnets of different nations would get too complex. Different coloured war bonnets would give different skills, but the main ones could be horseback riding, animal instinct and leadership.

    Super items like "Sitting Bull's War Bonnet" are necessary.

    Here are a few more items that could be introduced:

    Item #5: Buckskin Moccasins
    Cost: $1500 to $2500
    Attribute bonuses: +1 to Strength and Dexterity
    Skill bonuses: +5 to Reflex and +5 to Appearance

    Item #6: Fancy Buckskin Moccasins
    Cost: $3500 to $4500
    Attribute bonuses: +1 to all Attributes
    Skill bonuses: +7 to Reflex, +5 to Dodging, +7 to Tactics, and +5 to Appearance

    Item #7: Buckskin Shirt
    Cost: $2500 to $4500
    Attribute bonuses: +1 to Strength and to Charisma, +2 to Mobility and Dexterity
    Skill bonuses: +6 to Construction, +7 to Swimming, +7 to Repairing, and +6 to Trading

    Item #8: Fancy Buckskin Shirt
    Cost: $5500 to $7500
    Attribute bonuses: +2 to all Attributes
    Skill bonuses: +9 to Construction, +10 to Swimming, +10 to Repairing, and +9 to Trading

    Now, here is how they appear in the tailor:

    At level 11 (Assuming an expansion of the tailor would be needed), you would get either the regular or fancy buckskin shirt and either the regular or fancy buckskin moccasins. At level 12, you would get either the normal war bonnet or the fancy one and either the normal fringe shirt or the fancy one. Sound good so far?

    Why would these be added as a new top level rather than commingled with the existing stuff?

    I'd let the devs set the levels and quantity of attribute/skill bonuses, but I think you're on the right track with the choices of skills they boost.

    Why does every Native American item have attribute bonuses? None should have construction bonuses either. Yes, I know some tribes had buildings like longhouses, but it's way too specific to give our generic Indians con buffs.

    I thank you for that last compliment there, Luap. And I couldn't agree more! These items have very balanced bonuses, so they won't exactly come cheap. And you have a point about the devs. It is ultimately THEIR decision as to whether or not to create additional building levels in towns. :D
