Also how important are custom portraits? I am not a very artistic person, to put it nicely, so I cannot do anything outside of editing an already made character. Is it the type of thing that would ruin the game, or as long as the game is good it doesn't really matter? I ask because most of what I've done hack wise I never planned on public release, so I've never really thought about it, but with Fexna coming out soon I might want to do something in the community, but I don't want to put a lot of work into something and then the community disregard it because of my inability to draw.
My final question, is it possible for someone to make a character creating program? You know, something for those who can't draw well, or those who don't want to spend a lot of time on a boss or a non-generic npc that has one or two lines then is never seen again. I know the answer is probably no but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.
