A while back I'd posted to one of the ng's a question like this, but regarding
character gender:  possible repercussions of making it a factor in the game (with
attempts to balance the results if you chose one gender over another).


As for players being oriental, I don't think it would be a cause for concern unless
there are major disadvantages between being oriental and being whatever the
alternatives are.  There has to be some sort of balancing.
