12753195 No.12753195 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

My friend is the group's paladin, and plays it pretty well. Cleave and smite evil, cleave and smite. The thing is though, roleplaying-wise she plays the character exactly like the stereotypical noble chivalrous knight.

The character is female as well though, so she does it like, the paladin reveres men as being weak and needing protection, but deserving respect and to be treated with dignity. As such, she's staunchly opposed to striking or injuring men, or even treating them poorly or without respect, and will actively stop anyone from killing a man.

I suppose this wouldn't be a problem, if not for the fact that most of the enemies we encounter are dudes, including BBEG's whom we've been prevented from killing. As well, her interactions with any male contacts are overly complex, and the rogue who is a potential love interest, she reveres and treats in the manner of courtly love, writing sonnets and doing great deeds in his name.

Is this a justifiable approach/way to run a character, or should something be done to curb the occasional nuisances she's caused us? She says she enjoys playing the character, and it hasn't been *much* a hindrance, but things would be much simpler without her.

>> No.12753231

Kind of a neat idea, actually. I mean, she'd have to be smart about it and not be like "lulz my friends are dying but I refuse to hit a man!" But it's certainly not dead on arrival.

Well if nothing else, it certainly makes things more interesting and fun to play.

It's just sometimes annoying when like, we're about to slay the BBEG, and she steps in and is like "Retrain yourselves! You'll not harm a man in my presence. Come delinquent, your actions are an offense, but I'll defend you till the end, on my honor and my life!"

Before picking the BBEG up and carrying him back to to civilization, letting him have her tent while she stands guard, when the trip back takes more than a day.

That's just one example of the kind of things that happen frequently.

The rogue's just abusing the privileges, setting unreasonable standards for her to have to accomplish, and taking all her gold and good shit. He was confused at first and indignant, but now he's just abusing it.

Which is somewhat ironic, because given the mercy she's shown many evil opponents (men), she's got something of a following of reformed enemies (including some BBEGs), infatuated with her. And yet she settles for the rogue fucker who uses her.

In this respect, the character concept worked better in the one shot we ran where she first came up with the concept, in which, the character was married. Her husband stayed home and raised the kids, while she was out serving her Lord. At least in that, she wasn't being abused.

Not that I particularly care, it's just that it's starting to hurt us, when because of the Rogue, she can't afford good equipment and be more effective.

I believe that any actions taken against the Rogue, especially violent ones will be enacted against us tenfold by the Paladin.

As the other person said about her needing a lesson-teaching raping, she's a paladin for good reason, and save for someone who's much higher level than her, she'd just push the man off and chide him on being improper. If a chick tried it, she'd kill the woman brutally. Besides, the DM isn't enough a dick to toss someone high enough level at us, for the sole purpose of raping the paladin.

Also, she doesn't cry.

Because the invading force killed/kicked his family out of power.

His is a character that was raised with a silver spoon and a spoiled brat, then forced to a foreign land to live on the streets.

See >>12753863. It disposes of the rogue and gives you a martyr to rally support behind. Two birds, one stone.

Just make sure the pally doesn't know you sold him out. Or more accurately, just make sure that the people you sold him to can't conclusively prove it was you; that way, when they try to reveal what you did, the pally will assume they're faking it and be even less likely to uncover the truth.

The rogue is staunchly against that, and the knight has to respect him. Also he doesn't give a shit about her doing poorly, he gets all the sweet gear and loot.

Well our games usually don't last too long, but if things liven up I might ask for more advice or whatever.


If it would please the fetishfags, the character has occasionally referred in passing of her crusade days when discussing matters of morality or justification. For various reasons, including that any actions taken against the foreign godless heathens were justifiable. Alluding to that, after a successful battle or city siege, killing of civilians or taking herself some "comfort boys" from the defeated populace was appropriate and justifiable. Contrast where any such actions in "civilized" (read: religious) lands would be abhorrent.

The Paladin would still see that I attacked him though, right? Plus we're assuming I can kill him quickly enough where he couldn't react, or run away, or go crying to the Paladin, who could then in turn send me to timeout.


This isn't true, but it hilariously makes sense.

Actually one of the justifications that the Paladin has for considering men the weaker sex, that their mind/judgment is oft clouded with indecent thoughts. It's not their fault, just part of their nature, but because of it they aren't suited to things like labor and profession holding.

A man's role is at home or in church where he can contain any urges or indecencies either in private or through the will to serve god. Should he be free to roam, he would only fall prey to carnal urges and suggestions of the devil.

Keep 'em at home or in church, safe and away from temptation.

Get the rogue and paladin totally blitzed.

Then strip 'em naked and dump 'em in the same bed. If you're willing to go the extra mile, get fluids from the "whores" part of your own ale and whores session, then put some of them in the appropriate spots on the two of them and rather more on the sheets. Scatter their clothing around the room in realistic fashion too. And if you're really, really, really willing to go for verisimilitude, either whack off or actually have sex in the room, to make sure the smell is right. Then just keep the room warm enough that the pally and rogue both sweat in their sleep.

Even if the pally doesn't try to make the rogue "do the honorable thing" when she wakes up, the results of the two of them being absolutely one hundred percent convinced they had sex would be funny as hell.

It wasn't the character that inspired the other thread, but the girl and her character from another game. That one she played a barbarian or something.


It's more equal than that in most of out settings (about 70:30 ratio of men:women), because it's fantasy so you can have women adventuring and stuff and shit and all that. Done to accommodate the girl players in our group I suppose, but also to address the notion of, if the option of adventuring and freedom was there, and strength was more easily achievable/measurable (leveling system, magic, etc...), then more people in general would be doing shit like that.

As for the physiology aspect, again, the rules don't consider women as different from men so why should we? On that note, women make the best blood mages/warriors, so the possibilities are there.

In the setting typical people tend to view the order as exemplary, simply because of their religious devotion and ideal behavior. That they treat men in a reverse fashion, is just an odd detail easily overlooked.

Higher ups, and other groups/churches/organizations view them as necessary because of the services they provide.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be antagonistic, but like I said before I'm just having a hard time wrapping my brain around the treat men like ladies thing. Whatever makes the players happy, though right?

Your feelings are in tandem with many people we've met in the game.

Sure it's fine to joke and laugh about the female knight that treats men in reverse, but it's another thing when she arrives in town and silences misgivings with willpower and intimidation.

I can think of one example in particular, where we met with a mayor of a town, and when they started butting heads (his traditional view of women VS her ideals), basically a shouting match ensued, he ordered some guards to remove "this hysterical creature". She just pushed them off her and drove her sword in the table, asking more to everyone than the now mortified mayor, if there was anyone more competent around to converse with, a woman perhaps, a she was done arguing with "this hysterical creature".

Again it's one thing to have her order going around with their ideals as they do, it's quite another thing to be able to stand for their beliefs.

It's not so much an issue that she treats men as ladies, simply that they should take a subservient role to more level-headed and (setting-allowed) competent women.

It's really just their take, in relation to the rest of current society. If you go to their monasteries, men and women are equal individuals, do things together, play sports, train, eat, pray, celebrate, all that jazz.

But outside of that, or a household, men are to be subservient for the reasons previously listed in other posts. It is to be this way, until society major can accept or indoctrinate their beliefs/ideals, at which point, everyone can be equal.

I say she takes a chivalrous approach to men because that's the simplest and closest way of putting it. It isn't exactly so.

Well women are naturally blessed and more capable physically (child rearing, dex as you said, etc...) but both genders are capable of physical equality. Relatively speaking that is.

Considering underdeveloped or simply non-muscular or unfit men though, then you're right, they'd look down on them. By their view, good physical and mental health are imperative. So not just men, but women who weren't physically fit would be looked down upon as well, in the same way a body builder might look at a weak guy.

At least I think.

It's true she chides us for our lifestyles, but she accepts it as differences in upbringing or background or whatever. She never fails to lecture us on the importance of finding a strong woman to marry whom can provide a strong family and protect us, but values us as important party members and friends regardless.

She's the only solid fighter in the party. Higher strength, con, etc... than anyone, if only by small amounts in some cases. She falls short for it in other areas. Plus she has crap gear and spending habits.

But setting it all aside, if we were all stripped of gear and crap, and put in a wrestling match, she would come out on top.


The only problem with trying to change the character, is that it would also entail changing her order. Sure, overtime she might be able to make compromises and such, but at the moment she's fairly vested in the order and is training a squire; as such she needs to be an exemplar.

This reminds me of the famous deadlands character
He was a Spanish gentleman of the highest order, and, as such, he viewed women as treasures to protect, cherish, make sweet love to, and never ever listen to.

It's hard to go against someone when they have the majority (in relation to our party and it's means).

As previously stated, she's got some vicious war scars from what we know, but it's a setting where magic is common and varying in effect.

If nothing else, then she does a good job of keeping her face well either with healing, or protection. We've never seen any other part of her to know the condition of the rest of her body, besides what she tells us.

Well, to be fair, most blows wouldn't have been on the face - mostly because a straight morningstar to the face makes you dead, not ugly. A huge internal haemorrhage can be stopped with magic and leave a scar - but a mace hit that brains you kind of needs Raise Dead.

So chances are that as long you just see her face she's be alright - couple scars from sworsds that got too close or a helmet cave in, maybe, but unlikely to be much more. The rest of the body, though, is likely to be a mess.

There's the me, who's like a fighter/bard. Good at neither, bad at both. Looking awesome at doing everything.

There's the bard and the rogue and the knight and her squire (NPC).

A cleric/healer who backs us up, and respects knight's order and ideals, for the religious devotion. He's the closest to fitting her ideal of what a man should be, so they get on well enough.

A ranger who isn't really vested in religion, but appreciates knight's help, but tells her to go shove it when she tries to lecture him, because he's a different race.

And a mage who's exemplifies the quote "NIGGAS GETTIN BLASTED", and doesn't like being told what to do by the knight. He doesn't want trouble though, so usually just makes up excuses or runs away when she starts to talk.

I remember how Chivalry was a game instituted in the new arab kingdoms with the aim of domesticating the sandniggers into more cultured forms of conduct. No nature involved.

The rogue and paladin is just setting up a scenario where someone needs to challenge the paladin claiming that her softness towards the rogue (and men in general) has made her weak and unworthy before her god.

That's actually a bit of an urban myth.
What women CAN take is, in certain positions, better g-forces due to their more compact bodies.

The childrearing thing? Actually, no. They take that pain because they have to, thus the screaming, threats, biting and you never hearing the end of it. However, this is an act they're made for, and even without an epidural they're chock full of drugs (endorphins and such are produced within the body too). Their pain and temperature tolerances are actually lower than or equal to males. Its just that every single one of them repeats the whole "pains of childbirth" bits. They don't take compound fractures and the like nearly as well.

I mean in the setting. That's their views.


Which character, the rogue or the paladin? The paladin is good, strong, and dependable. The rogue is crafty, selfish, complains often and lies allot.


No one in our group though is fit to beat the paladin in a fight. We'd need outside assistance for something like that, and doing so would likely debase the importance.


She'll just go by the reasoning that he's befallen of typical weaknesses and temptation prone to men. As such she pities him and mitigates his desires, lest he descend to greater depravity.

Or some other reasoning like that.

I don't want that though.

To the person she marries, is essentially character death, because her husband would then be sent home to remain there. Occasionally she might visit him, but his role in the game would be considered over. Plus as stated she'd be prone to domestic violence.

No, it's settled, and there's no use arguing - she needs someone to cook her meals and darn her socks, and you meant what you said when you swore to always be by her side!

This is also something we could do. She's got some knight comrades though under the Lord as well, and old war buddies, so it'd have to be someone outside of the circle.

I think the thing most people are overlooking though, is the fact that she isn't some pretty little sparkly wonderful girl in armor who prances around all "tee hee" pitying boys.

She's a serious soldier and knight, highly capable of what the professions entail and physically ideal to serve such roles. Her reverse chivalrous nature is just a belief of hers, not some laughable facet for lulz. At least, in character that is.

Hence why all the suggestions of "Oh just beat her up" or "Find a man to rape some sense into her" are more or less pointless. Even if we step out of our bounds (read: be dicks) and find some Conan manly hero to beat her around some, she'll only acknowledge that there are people stronger than her, not necessarily men, but women too. She just needs to be stronger.

I like OP's paladin.
Seems like she would be fun to debate the merits of humanity with, and I can see from far away that she is taking the piss out of the classic gender stereotypes.
The fact that there are people who are actively unsettled by it shows just how deeply ingrained they are, and how silly they are to have in a setting where men and women are considered entirely equal across the board. There is actually no reason for such beliefs to exist when there is no perfunctory differences in the sexes, but such prejudices persist because the players bring them in. Why people are suggesting OP live up to the slanted idea of men in the paladin's mind is beyond me, tho, especially since the long term result is going to end up hurting the party with an abrupt lack of competence across the board.

I'm playing a walking store. Baisically I have like every weapon ever and can do what everyone else can do (except magic), just not even remotely as well.

My relationship is that she chides me for not staying at home or finding a wife ("I won't be able to protect you forever you know!"), but thinks I would make a good husband for someone, given the vast multitude of skills I can perform, enough to surprise her. I just see her as the tank and a friend.


That's what some people said and I think is a good idea, as she'd not hold back against other women.


>Implying she wouldn't know how to react to demons, regardless of appearance or gender


Well she's not a lone warrior, her order numbers in the several thousand. Not all that many, but still enough to be considered a force in the world.

Get another male character, make him a barbarian, fighter or even a bloody monk if you can manage to make that less sucky.

Don't have him be a chauvinist or stupid or anything. Calm, collected and serious in a way the pally can't criticize. But now he's another strong physical fighter and if the pally steps her misandristic ass out of line you can take her down and/or kick her out.

Right, first off you'll want to get acquainted with the trope
considering your some what tenuous relationship with the Paladin, I think you'll need to go with a type A Tsun-tsun. You'll have to be like a candy coated chocolaty treat- brusque on the outside, snapish, and probably prone to niggling the paladin over minor faults (your armor is all dented, how dare you treat a man like that, etc. etc.)
Any help you give her should be given grudgingly or accidentally- which you should remind her continuously
"I'm not helping you in this fight, I just happened to be in the bar and wanted to get some practice in,"
"I'll help your squire with her sparring exercises, but only because your form is all wrong and I can't stand to see the kid go out to battle like that,"

However, no matter how sour your outside, you should have more then a little grudging respect for her
Don't be afraid to talk about how you really feel for her- moments of peace between hard fought battles, perhaps
but always they should be moments only early on, giving just hints of your feelings before you clam up and return to the harsh routine
give it time and a little effort on the paladins part, however, and you should continue to expand on these periods of sweetness and openess

Then I think you should do it really. Haven't been much up to the idea yet but you should try it just because it might be fun and your first time doing so. Hell, you might even like it. Personally I could see it working with your character on a theoretical level, especially so considering your characters role in the group (as opposed to the rogues).
Christ you're an obnoxious twit. If OP goes for romance I'm starting to hope he doesn't pick the archetype just because of you the annoying fuck(s).

Perhaps you should present her character with some sort of situation that forces her hand, morally.

Throw her into a situation with no good outcome, no black and white, all grey.

Break her will, it is your very duty as a GM to do so.

Well, don't want to make you do anything uncomfortable. If you feel you can go forward with the suggestions, be sure to talk it over with the paladin's player first. Last thing this interesting game needs is discomfort caused by not communicating.

Even if you don't want to go ahead with it, you might want to discuss matters if the extreme inverse-chivalry is bothering you. Her character sounds like fun to play with, but it'd be a shame if it got out of hand, or if the Paladin became totally ineffective due to lack of equipment.

Have an evil witch molest her

That seems to be a thing for female knights

Here's an idea grow a pair, and talk to the player about the problems. Involve the group if it's more then one person.

Or keep being a passive aggressive pussy.

You don't Cir-know?

Also, OP, just roll with it. Ignore faggotry, receive fun. The macho paladin, and her player, sound like the kind who generally function as constant sources of amusement for their groups. So make a game out of it, start competing with her in masculinity, start being a reverse suffragette, try to get in her pantaloons, bromance the rogue, do whatever seems fun.

Just... don't try to mold the whole world to be WIMMINZ CANNOT INTO ADVENTURING, if it wasn't so to begin with. Only men whose confidence is too frail to stand competition with women do that.

I'm intrigued. Any other books about female dominated settings?

Preferably books that aren't shit.
