Only trolls and dwarves are allowed to wear the scottish line. Elves have to wear the princess line.

Edit- Yoinks the taco.

Elves actually have their own heritage line.
Now you know.
And knowing is half the battle.

Hey, just because they wear pink tutus doesn't mean they can't be manly.

You CAN, in fact, get it with the Restricted Gear quality.

Your GM has to make up the price and stats, though.

Unfortunately it would rarely be worth taking the quality. In the case of the character I am building it is not. Easier to just have nice Heavy Armored Clothes that look the way I want them to anyway. There are rare cases when it may be worth it, but I just want a neo-samurai look. I'm not trying to be an ethnic high society type or anything else that would warrant a very specific and exclusive line of clothing. Better to use that quality to get a powerful Focus Weapon or some insane Bioware.

Eh. Owning a Heritage suit is never, ever going to be about the ratings.

It's a status symbol.

Oh, I'm not saying some aren't manly, Robin Hood wore tights. What I'm saying is it doesn't really help the borderline ones, you know those ones ::)

If you are trying to look Chic and fit into the wealthy, hip crowd and still have some modest amount of protection, then yes, it is worth it.

If you are travelling through Everett or Tacoma, then no you won't get much use out of it as all it will do is draw stares (which you don't want).

If you are moving through the Barrens (pick one), then this is a huge "KILL ME AND ROB ME" sign written all over you.

Fashion depends on what part of society you are moving through.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

Yes it does, the saying "The nail that sticks out gets hammered down" is true in this case. Honestly though, the Heritage line seems over priced compared to the other fashionable lines. Most of which are between half or a third of the cost. The only thing that comes close is the Moonsilver gown and that is 75% of the cost.

It represents the top end fashion of the elite.  Wearing it should get you the attention you desire when going to the right parties.

Remember, the stupidly rich (or just rich and stupid) go with the top end fashion, while everyone else deals with functional clothing that may or may not look nice.

It's the difference between wearing Tommy Hilfiger off the rack and a personally tailored suit from Tommy.

The stupid rich are called that for a reason.  Unlike the rest of us who have to work for our money and tend to dress practically and cheaply they have to look for stupid shit to blow their money on.  So for them it makes sense.  Fancy, extremely overpriced armored clothes vs. armored vest worn under cheaper, but still fancy clothes?  That's the debate.

Sorry.  Can I have my taco back now?
