Octopodes should be able to use scarves

I understand the limits of octopodes but I see zero reasons one couldn't wear scarf. You can wear an amulet around your mantle, but not a scarf..?

I've always thought of felids as roughly the no-item species.

Re: Octopodes should be able to use scarves

Scarves are absorbent and would fatally dry out an octopode through their semi porous skin. Hats, with less material and leather bands don’t share this flaw.

I knew there would be a good reason.

Wouldn't this be a reason to allow helmets but disallow hats?

So in other words, you admit there's no *real* reason not to allow this. Gotcha.

That's a misrepresentation of what Ebering said. The "real" reason is a character concept where body slots (with one exception) are entirely reserved for jewellery, and this is not going to change. He jokingly added a flavour-sounding explanation for those who need it.

Hats and amulets make *two* exceptions, actually.

Last time I checked, amulets qualified as jewellery.
