Personally, I agree with what Mathmuse recently said in the “Why Most Inner Sea Nations Fail” thread. As he opined: “The true out-of-game-reason is that the writers and artists want us to recognize Alkenstar was a Wild West setting with steampunk elements, so the residents dress like Wild West setting with steampunk elements.”Nevertheless, discovering a workable in-game explanation is a lot of fun. I cannot draw, but I have made up flavorful backstories for NPCs based on my in-game explanations for details that the original writers did not explain.
I completely agree.
