Why do female casters always dress so skimpy?

They absorb mana through their skin. This is canon now.

Sure, that makes sense. But why do male casters look like pic related?

Artists think making them look sexy will attract an audience.

Personally I find it boring. Mainly because I've got easy access to porn.

>>52280603
I imagine so they can attract a party of sexually deprived male adventurers to tank for them.

Because they have terrible taste.

Also holy crap it took me way too long to find a non-nude sexy male caster, or close enough. I really need to properly sort and tag my image folders. We also need more good sexy male caster art. Especially stuff which isn't trap/crossdressing. I love that stuff, but variety is the spice of life.

I'm still trying to find some decent looking sexy male casters, but it really isn't a common picture. Most of the ones I find are pseudo-barbarian, which admittedly does take up a lot of the bare male chest space in fantasy stuff.
>>
>>52280651
Because they have a different idea of looking good.
Don't question wizard fashion if you aren't a wizard. It makes you look stupid.

If I recall, in 5e, both the Warlock and the Sorcerer are charisma-based mages who have potential access to an ability giving them effective always-on mage armor when they don't have any other substantial armor on. It's at least an option that functions.

There's some covers that will have men, even muscular ones. But not many. Even the news and other non-sexually specific magazines will have beautiful women on their covers.

GURPS

...No joke, memes aside, GURPS has a cinematic optional rule called Bulletproof Nudity, that adds a defense bonus to characters depending on how much skin they're showing. You could totally do a campaign where the caster template has that bundled in (like taking the "absorbs mana through the skin" thing seriously) or just one where everyone has it.

When you're one of the most powerful wizards in the world, you would probably want to look old & wrinkly to garner the respect you damn well deserve. I just can't picture the stereotypical archmage as physically under the age of 40, unless it's in a particularly unrealistic setting, like every anime ever.

And face it, old spellcasters are just way cooler than the younger ones.

That's a horrible resolution to that plotline.

Instead of going IT WAS ALL A RUSE HUEHEUHUEHEUHEUE he should have made it so the real baker and his daughter were kidnapped just after he left after punching the baker's lights out, and the BBEG then went after the PC while illusioned. Serves as a nice twist and a gut punch while simultaneously not completely undoing presumably months of character development, and gives the character a goal to work for (rescuing the baker and his daughter from the BBEG).

There was nothing Big or Bad about this annoy as fuck wizard. He's just a crazy old fag that randomly appears, fucks with everything, then fucks off to one of his four hundred towers.

Up until that point I just thought he was annoying. Only dangerous because he's an epic level wizard with the mind of a nine year old CoD player.

After being turned into a cat I made it a life mission to drag that fucker down the steps of his tower, bleeding and broke, and rip his heart out of his chest.

I'm fine with this character being a loaner. Especially now that he's a fucking cat.

Because the common cultural root for western ideas of the male wizard are rooted in Odin. On the other hand, woman magi in the western tradition tend to be rooted in two places. The first is Circe, the beautiful seductress of Odysseus. The other is the medieval understanding of wyrds. These women were held to reject the natural (Christian) order and usurp power. Because of this, they were depicted as wanton, copulating freely, even with demons and the devil.

In The Witcher, they have an explanation for it.

Typically the women who are gifted with magical abilities/trained are those who had major defects before they were taken away for training. (Yennefer was a hunch back.)

After training they can hide and/or get rid of those defects and have a massive yearning to be beautiful because of how they were treated before.

They are also typically advisors, and use their sexuality to help in their schemes.

Well, the world-ending fireballs part is itself rare in any sort of medium. Video games and tabletop games are really the only places where spellcasters casually and frequently throw flashy magic around. Most films and literature use the kind of magic that requires lengthy preparation and rituals and does things that aren't immediately obvious, and wizards themselves tend to be there as either a deux ex machina or some kind of guide for the sword-swinging hero.
>>
>>52280603
Magic is everywhere in the air and constantly flowing into the caster. Covering the body disrupts that flow. The most powerful and skilled magic users wear nothing at all. The skimpy clothes are just an illusion and something of an inside joke in the mage community.

>>52280620

This is true, i used hyperbole to express what should have been 'general magic shit'.

Video games still lack 'heavy mage' as a thing, mostly balance reasons i bet. But think about it, i have unnatural powers that people will target me for. I should learn how to move in life saving armor, and have a sword i can use as back up.

I think the point he was trying to make, or at least touch on is this;

Threads that have sexy non-nude females? normal, sexy non-nude males? gay.

We also do not know if the characters that are being shown as pretty men are in fact gay either, so the term faggot is unnecessary.

But by your use of the language, you immediate assumption that he called you gay (he just suggested you might be questioning your sexuality), and your hostility, i'd hazard that you are in fact homophobic, and/or gay and shamed about it.

This.
Also, an old man is traditionally seen as wise while a younger one is seen as rash and foolhardy. This is why certain cultures had age requirements for offices. To look the part of a powerful male wizard you should appear to be a person of great wisdom who have had enough time in his life to study the vast wells of knowledge availible to him. Looking old and weak also have the added advantage of people not considering you as much of a threat which can come in handy.

In contrast a good looking young women is at the hight of her power as she can use her womanly ways to influence the men around her. There's a reason Cleopatra is traditionally thought of as beautiful even though the primary sources suggest otherwise. A prudent, powerhungry sorceress would thus spend time and effort on trying to look (young and) as beautiful as possible to increase her personal power.

In other words: Male magic-wielders look old to signal wisdom and to not appear threatening while female magic-wielders look young and gorgeous to enhance their personal power and influence.

In a matriarchal society I don't doubt that we would find plenty of male-wizards who'd take the traditionally female approach of maximising their attractiveness.

So imagine for a moment a world without technology. There is no internet, the world is as it was before that time. Nerds are hated and reviled, made from the castoffs of society and those fascinated with knowledge. But without exception the world worships martial classes and looks down on nerds. As such, you're not expected to be attractive and trying is generally slapped down unless you're exceptional.

Now imagine for a moment the wizard. Scrying pools and other spells allow for long distance communication, just like the internet does. Wizards are able to talk to people! But you don't want people to see your regular ugly mug online, just as you wouldn't in a scrying pool. You add a few little glamors, illusions, maybe even use a transformation spell to even out any unsightly features like acne. Suddenly you have the cheat codes to hotness and peers that are interested in the same thing you are.

Men want to stop being skinny geeks and be respected. They want that aged distinguished look, but they'll be damned if they've got the muscles because they hate the guys that have them. Alternatively they really want to look cool and buy far too many belts and far too few shirts.

Women wizards have always been made to feel ugly and unwanted because they rejected a traditional life as a pigfarmers bride. They want to be so hot it turns those girls they grew up with in the village into weeping wrecks when they're seen.

In both cases they want to be so awesome or sexy or distinguished that the people that spent their entire lives looking down on them pay.

Imagine an anime con. A group of nerds congregating together and only judging each other. Now imagine the people in it have magic cheat codes to being hot, unlike real life. Suddenly you have a ton of legitimately hot and smart people running around together with no sense of right or wrong wearing next to nothing.

Wizards guilds are like the ultimate hookup con. Everyone is a nerd looking to get laid.

Unless this is anime, the most powerful wizards are going to look rather middle-aged, at least older than 40. You're not going to garner any respect for looking like a young individual.

I concur

Powerful magic users that appear young piss me off and reeks of unrealistic bullshit, even for fantasy which is inherently unrealistic.

Considering we're talking about wizards so powerful they could reshape their entire appearance, what if they could just switch between young and old?

>>
>>52316678
I always ran with this, even in D&D this is how it happens.

The court-archmage of Thyatis is physically 70-ish but takes on the appearance of his younger self when going undercover or just for plain leisure. He is nearly always in his elderly form.
>>
>>52316739

Elminster as well, he will always be the "old bearded man" but can turn himself into a teenager just to have fun. It's explicit that he does this to fool around. He can also turn into women, which the goddess Mystra forced upon him as a joke/lesson.

He never goes on official business as a young individual though. The Sage of Shadowdale is constantly old in appearance.

As for most of this thread, it's made me remember that people annoyed with a stereotype and trying to subvert it can be as annoying as the original stereotype.

This sounds like a campaign. Except they'd have to be a world threatening challenge, trying to stop these people.

How much testosterone do you have to pump into your veins in order to think toned and lean = weak and anaemic? Are all athletes who aren't in strength sports wimpy to you?

And like it or not, most women nowadays prefer leaner, sharper physiques and facial features. Why do you think more girls obsess over Cumberbatch and Hiddleston than, say, Bautista and Bjornsson?

This is why you shouldn't expect to get more girls the more you lift. It's simply diminishing returns, because while they will admire your fitter physique, they will justifiably be intimidated by your increasing size until they almost never approach you on first sight. Aim to interest women, not scare them off.

Skimpy + skimpy = the same amount of skimpy?

Surely anyone truly powerful wouldn't care about what they look like to mere mortals, vanity is simply one more human feeling that will hold you back from ascending to a higher plain of existence.
