    I went for the horns (no pun intended ), to accommodate my fondness for Varl!

    Also, even after some googling, I am not sure what "Hugr" is!

    Beards.

    At first i was really upset that women and dredge didn't had beards, but the dev were kind enough to add horsebornes: at least they had body hairs and a mane of sort.

    My second choiche would have been horns.

    My third... MEAD! And i must say, if it weren't for Sig, this would have been a real concern.

    I hope Stoic's learned the lesson, for BS3

    It's tacky but I had to vote for the horns. The stereotype is just too strong!

    A beard/mustache-less Varl is a strange thing. The only Varl to shave his beard is Hakon. Hmm... Is there something hidden here?

    Look at his moustaches! He's probably one of the last varl from the early 70s! I am sure he went to Grofheimstock festival in '69!

    No surprise he is becomed king in BS2!

    Hakon always reminded me of Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi
