Charsheets, how to tackle more than two genders

liondriel

We've recently created a campaign for a Vampire game we play. As it turns out, one of the chars would rather not be defined as "male" or "female", and the sheets don't seem to offer other options.

What would be the angle to approach this? Is this hard coded on the server side and would have to be "fixed" by the OP folks? Something that can be changed through DST?

 

(Not trying to start a discussion about the validity of wanting more than two options, really. Thanks).

    @liondriel, take a quick read of the FAQ article about the Male/Female radio buttons, as they aren't for what they might appear to be at first glance. The best method for handling any and all categorical descriptors for characters is to use tags. Tags give you ultimate freedom to categorize and define things in whatever manner you choose, while enabling you to take advantage of your campaign site's various search capabilities.

    All the best,
