Anatomy, Fashion, Travel
#1
Anatomy:
Am I right in assuming they don't have a clavicle? Seeing anthros on deviantart I realize people in general just add it, but it throws my concept of canine anatomy off >.> so I've always assumed they didn't, but then that makes the boobs thing different so I just thought I'd ask.


Fashion:
70's yes? A-lines, bell-bottoms, [html]<s>bad mustaches</s>[/html], and a heapton of floral prints? Or was that just American 70's, I have no idea if Canada's was different I guess I've only studied American. I only ask because Aoves is going to be going 'shopping' soon and I want an idea of what she'll see~


Travel:
kejhfvlkejhv [html]<a href=http://rpguide.soulsrpg.com/soulsverse/travel/>this</a>[/html] chart was my besfrand trying to figure out the size/navigational time because I can't do travel math (or math in general) at all. Just curious if it was a one time thing, or if it will ever be updated again (its still helpful either way so no complaints from me if not c:).

I was reading something somewhere and I thought I seen something that said Canada didn't have a 70's period like the United States.

Anatomy -- I think with boobs in general it's something that's left up to the artist to decide when they draw. We don't mandate reproductive parts doing things a certain way/being a certain way. If we set a standard, everyone would have to read it and adhere to it and some players would just rather not -- easier things are left "if it's realistic in some way -- canine or human -- it's okay." As for actual anatomy question and whether or not there is an actual clavicle, I leave that to Kiri to answer because she is much better at these things than me and usually knows them. D8

Fashions -- found fashions would be leftovers from the late 80s, 1988 to be precise. Things that were invented or occurred after this year wouldn't be found -- so the only (non-working, obvs) cell phones you might find would be huge oversized bricks attacked to cars. XD Same with fashion, though I can't point out a specific example. <_< This Wikipedia article might help -- Canada has its obvious differences from America but it wouldn't be unrealistic to assume Canadian fashions were so different from then-popular American fashions.

When dealing with salvaged cloth also, remember that lots of it would have gotten moldy, moth-eaten, or otherwise destroyed. This is especially true of things that are really thin (silk, satin). Canvas/denim and other thicker materials might hold up better.

Travel chart will be updated at some point. I would do it, but -- I am seriously terrible with numbers and kind of terrified of messing up the calculations. <_< If someone wanted to do the calculations I'd hug them and update the table ASAP. ;D

Canada still had fashion periods like the US did since there were tons of imports from the US. Heavy metal, hip hop and rap would have been popular, as were denim/leather jackets (think Grease), ripped jeans and chucks. However, I think it's worth noting that Souls is set in Nova Scotia and not Toronto, so you'd be harder pressed to find super extreme grunge/heavy metal stuff. It's a poorer area that was mostly industry workers whose kids probably made some clothes or salvaged and altered.

So say the Maritimer. :) I'm basing this off family photos, friends experiences etc of course, so YMMV.
