You get to romance Anomen, look around, there should be lots and lots of info in loose topics alone about playing as a female..

Why would you want a pretty dress when you're gonna fight monsters, get blasted by fire, and strap armour over the top of it? Image

I don't know about the dresses, but I think there's a merchant in Trademeet who sells Pantyhose of Death (-3 to AC, can cast Wail of Banshee once/day)

What? Where exactly is he? IMO that will sure be an OVERpowered armour...

Osiris, I played the game over and over again for 4 times, but I didn't see that "armor" nor the one who sell it. You're definitely just joking...

Many thanks Osiris!!!
Pantyhose of Death works a treat,especially when worn with Garter of Femininity and Stilletoes of Greater Piercing (take false Dragons eggs to fish merchant in Bridge District).

QUITCH!.My mother always told me to wear clean underwear incase I got knocked down by a car.Surely when faced by certain death at the hands of say; a Beholder it would be better to be wearing a nicely ironed silk camisole under that charred studded leather when the undertakers come to take you away.

I have just completed the game playing as a female kensai. She's a master of the sword and does not take kindly to being called a 'chick'. Seriously, playing a female character is great fun. It puts a whole new perspective on many things. For starters I gained a whole new insight into sexual harassment. It seemed that every male in the game wanted to get into my cuisses. They soon fell foul of my Celestial Fury. Imoen is different too, being a sister to a sister. So go ahead and have a ball. Be warned though. The romance choice is Amomen. But the brothels are equal opportunity.

Don't Forget to turn off the AI if you enter a shop with your female.She might just spend all your money on the most useless stuff
