Character Creation Systems, and Their Portrayal of Race, Gender, Body Types, Disabilities, and Age by Zachary Abbott and Trent Cornwell

Our paper was accepted to Meaningful Play 2016 where we presented our findings to fellow industry members. Below are the games observed, and our findings in regards to which games had what features in their character creation system. You can download our paper here.
