All-in-all another good Ask Cryptic. Thanks dstahl for taking the time!

Actually that's a good idea. You should start a thread entitled "Ask the Cryptic Fans", and ask us all of those little things you've always wanted to know.
Excellent idea dstahl/Peregrine_Falcon! A stickied Ask Cryptic Fans thread would be awesome! I'm totally /signed +1 on that.

As for my answer to your question about tall humans. Part of the answer is that I'm a tall person in real life (6'2") so anything shorter is a strange concept to me. My primary character is tall (I think he is a 6'4" human, heh), but I'm pretty sure most of my other characters (Captains & BOs) are shorter than 6'.

I think this might also have something to do with it.

Also, when we set the height, we're only setting the base, right? I mean if we adjust leg and torso lengths (and to a less extent, head and feet size/height), then it actually can change our actual/overall height. Is it possible that somewhere we can see the Net Height for our character (after the body part adjustment)?
