I understand you get the final call on this one, however I'd like to point out as someone who was involved in the discussion around that charter provision that it was not intended to be used in this way. It was specifically referring to costumes you can edit- you cannot change the color, look, or combination of any of Jaden's outfits, and the outfits are identical no matter what species you put them on.

Just a matter of difference in perspective, but my opinion is unchanged.

This honestly throws all customizable video game leads into question- Revan has three different starting outfits you can choose from and like 12 different heads each between two genders. And most people don't even use the starting outfit, they go with the KOTOR-style Jedi robes you pick up later, or the Star Forge robes. If you could edit colors and choose more granularly than "torso" and "legs" then maybe, but there's a fixed number of combinations and you can't really deviate from what the game designers intended.

I mean I guess there is some art floating around somewhere from the canceled Jaden book where you can be human male dude Jaden, but that feels quite a lot more limiting than the Legion has traditionally been with video game leads.

That was certainly how it was ruled the last time we looked at KOTOR game costumes. No edits, but as long as you went with standard sets, then it was fine.
As I see it having multiple sets to choose from is no different than a comic or movie character doing a costume change. The issue is not what species or gender the character is, not in this game, but whether there's standard sets to be worn.
With access to the game it shouldn't be too hard making a full list of possible costumes and species along with with colors can be used for the twi'lek. It's an exhaustive list, after all.

From what I've read the costume itself cannot be edited, so I don't believe it falls under the 'edit' rule in the charter. It just has some variations like other costumes do.

Awesome, I'm going for it! Very Happy
