    Just my 2 cents worth here, but the fish masks REALLY don't fit the theme of a fantasy world I want to play in.

    I realize its subjective, but in my opinion those masks cross the line from fantasy to just stupid. Just because you can arguably justify the inclusion of pretty much anything in a fantasy world doesn't mean you SHOULD.

    For example, care bears could exist in the fantasy world of Novia but that wouldn't be a Novia I care to spend time in.

    I was looking forward to the addition of more patterns for head gear until these fish mask entered the equation. Unfortunately now that makes it even more likely that people will be running around looking like someone chopped off their head and shoved a fish down their neck.

    Unfortunately these things have already been created so its probably to late to turn back but I would absolutely pay $20 for a filter so I dont have to look at those things in game.

    Please take care in maintaining a consistent style of fantasy world in the artwork for the game. I realize its your would and I just live in it, but if your world gets too far out for my taste I wont live in it anymore.

    I felt the same with the addition of the fairy wings. Fortunately, they don't seem to be all that common. I do wish I could still play in SPO to get away from some if the awful combinations tho. I'd get back on the subscription just to have that option...

    Yes I agree, those masks are utterly bullshit.
    I can not understand developers wasting time in creating such a thing in the first place.
    The masks are not even funny to look at...

    The way Starr was talking about them on the live stream I was got the impression he was joking, the images looked rather photoshopped so still hoping for actual masks inspired by different fish rather than what was shown.

    I completely agree with the eyesore part, those masks, if they look anything like what was shown, are hideous.
    We already have R2D2, why not Funshine Bear?

    I think we need to keep in mind there are developers and there are artists. This is one of the things from the artists and the stuff from the artists is what funds the game right now. I suspect the developers are working their cans off on episode 2...at least I hope cause I bought a town. :)

    You know I might be okay with these mask if wearing one automatically flagged you for pvp and then I could roleplay a fishkiller....

    You'd have to wear a hook mask, though.

    While normally I take the stance that the "immersion" ship has long since sailed with the addition of rainbow sparkle everything and giant airships and such, or walking by R2D2, etc. these fish masks are a whole new level. I mean, I get the animal hats, it makes sense after a fashion to equip oneself with a hat that has ears on, but fish heads? Really? I honestly thought this was some sort of joke when we saw it. While a handful of people would likely want this for trolling/amusement purposes, they are pretty awful. I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed that there are dozens if not hundreds of existing assets/furniture/outfits found in NPC areas that players have no way to obtain/craft/buy, as well as long overdue character art so we have more than 3 bad hairstyles to choose from, and we have the artist and convert-art-to-wearable people working on.…THIS? Really? Who asked for fish hats? Did I miss some super upvoted wishlist somewhere? More important, how can you add a 'fish head hat' before you have something as simple as being able to change the stupid hair color baubles on your character from red to anything else. -grumbles-

    Those along with the horse head masks are the stupidest thing I’ve seen. BUT... a lava fish head might look cool! Verdict still out until I see the in-games ones lol
