wanted to roll as a female raider/viking

party keeps bitching saying
>no real female warriors
>no slutty armor

I can't find good examples of realistic female warriors so female characters art thread I guess?
it's always good to keep that folder updated

>no real magic users
is the proper response.

Assuming high fantasy. If it's low fantasy/"""historical""" you might as well respond in character- presumably the character has long experience having to deal with that sort of thing.

I mean Seid is a female art in Norse mythology, valkyries are women only, and shieldmaidens are all over the place.

I mean as far as warrior cultures go, vikings are the most open to women of them all short of fucking amazons.

Yep, but I bet some autist claiming that it was all made up in sagas and wasn't thing in reality when the truth is that there are both clues for and against it and it can't be ultimately proven or disproven with modern knowledgeand even if it would be, it's still fantasy ffs
i'd mildly agree with being against slutty armor, at least overly slutty, but that also depends on the setting and tone

I mean a group of archaeologists in Scotland found a woman buried with a Viking sword.

Unrelated to Vikings, but here's another fun fact: in the movie Gladiator, the female chariot riders weren't made up. They actually existed in ancient Rome.

Which is kinda funny since the rest of the film butchers history.

Yeah, Seid, kinda like Norse-Lapp Shamaism is "womanly" but there are definitely girl warriors in Norse legend.

It hardly matters unless it is intended to be a serious historical game. Then "Girl Warrior" is a social disadvantage, though you may want to consider a more "dex" than "str" build I guess.

Helmets are for faceless NPCs.

consider it from a narrative stand point. The ones with faces you can see are more relatable to the audience and are meant to stand out. The ones with helms, barring sick ass custom helms, are percevied as just a mass of nameless mooks. The helmless folk will have a longer life expectancy, even if it is just to give them some time before "tragically" killing them to make a point about wearing helms. The folks with helms are just going to die by the droves.

tldr; when in a fictional battle go without the helm. the audience will have more mercy on you.

It isn't the wrong way. If you hang it by the handle, with the head down, every time you take a step the mace would swing and bash into your leg/knee. By wearing like in the picture, you don't have that problem.

To draw it, you just grab right below the head (or the head itself) and pl it out. Then you read just your grip to the proper place. You don't grab onto the handle like you would a sword, no bending down is required.

>no real female warriors

Half the Viking warrior graves they've found had women in them iirc. Some buried alone with weapons and horses and shit. Alone as in without their husbands. As in these were probably warriors.

>As in these were probably warriors.

That's not necessarily true. They were just women who died, and got buried with certain grave goods.

Funny thing, that whole mass grave of Viking warriors which was like half women? That doesn't prove at all that half of Viking women were warriors. It proves that half the people who died in that battle were women. If there were 100 warriors in the battle and 5 of them were women, and 10 Vikings died in the battle (5 of the dead were women), all that proves is that women make terrible fighters.

It's better to just avoid the whole issue and make sure women in your games stay in their proper place. Which is far, far away from the battlefield, except when the battlefield itself comes to the camp train.

It doesn't matter if there were real female viking warriors, because you're not playing a real one, but one in a fantasy setting of some sort.

The only question is, does this setting have them, if yes, then cool you get to play one, and if not, then even then you can still try to buck the trend with whatever consequences are reasonable according to the GM (such as -4 to max strength, or not being taken seriously by certain NPCs).

Adventurers are literally people who don't follow conventions and the normal way of living.

I feel like they deserve to get their ass whooped by a tribe of thick, muscular amazons who then proceed to snu-snu them into submission in the most humiliating way possible, breaking their pelvis and their pride with their fierce love-making. And then keep them locked up in their tent village to have each and every new girl coming of age take a shot at them, becoming every bit as fierce as the rest of the captors.

You don't even have to go that far back in history. Nakano Takeko led an all-woman brigade during the siege of Aizu during the fall of the Tokugawa in the 1800s. They weren't on the front lines, per se, but when the castle fell she fought with a naginata before getting shot.

Like >>51848081 points out, women fighters are extraordinarily rare and usually are the result of an unusual individual and/or desperate times, but they weren't nonexistent.

>Half the Viking warrior graves they've found had women in them iirc

That comes from an article conflating two seperate discoveries and then making stuff up.

The "half all graves" figure comes from a series of excavations in England which containing far more women than expected. The traditional view is that the first few generations of Viking settlement in England were primarily men who took local wives and scandinavian women only moved there later. These graves suggest that scandi women were there from the start and the gender divide among settlers was more equal.

The warrior bit comes from a very few female graves containing wargear as grave goods. Items that had strong cultural value and can be explained without invoking shield maidens.

The "half all warrior burials were women" thing is made up. There was no mass-grave of warriors containing women. It's clickbait and nothing more.

Shieldmaidens are great for a game, and I'm not interested in debating whether they existed in rela life, but that particular bit of evidence is bogus.

There is a very old Chinese text about war that talks about how to best use your women troops. This implies that at the time they existed in enough numbers that someone bothered to include them in a manual.

It also discussed best use of elderly and juvenile troops as well, so one imagines it was written in hard times.

Like most ancient history it doesn't "prove" a whole lot, it could have been a theoretical text, but we see all these little bits and suggestions at different times and places that girls sometimes did fight.

I'm sure at all of those times men would rather have them home making babies, but real life often gets in the way of our ideal worlds, so I feel pretty confident it happened.

"Common"? Never. "Noteworthy"? Is debatable.

here's my take on female warriors:

you can go with the slender and lady-like
who had to take up arms against some threat, or to fight for her country, whatever.
or you can go the musclegirl route, which would be more realistic as a fighter whose livelihood is wielding weapons.

if you go with the ladylike version, forget long bows. they took great upper body strength to draw. if you want to be a ranged specialist, go with crossbows.
as far as melee weapons go, most non-rapier, non-dagger type one-handed weapons require great strength to wield effectively. two-handed swords are actually easier to wield, because their weight are distributed between the strength of both your arms, and they normally don't weigh twice as much as one-handed weapons.
either that, or use spears, which also don't require great strength to use.

Has leg wrappings and a cloak but no other clothes? Makes sense.

One issue with that. The mixed sex units are Israel's equivalent of the National Guard. They've seen combat, definitely, but they've also suffered more casualties than their male only counterparts every time.

Women in the military is fine in prehistory, or fantasy, but it doesn't work well with a modern standing army. Here

>jerk off to your orange fag leader.
I've got a question and since the image limit has hit the 150 mark, I might as well ask the question. We all know that many people who support Trump did so to get rid of Muslims from their country, but also a fair amount of his supporters dislike Jews (see the increase vandalism and hatred to the American Jewsish community) and Trump is a firm supporter of Israel and his son in law and daughter are Jewish. The question is why would /pol/ support Trump if he's in the "Jews" pocket and would only serve their interest. Are the Muslims worse in the eyes of /pol/ then the Jews. Also, if you could answer another question, why would /pol/ like Milo if he's a homosexual which has supported pedophiles.

>Are the Muslims worse in the eyes of /pol/ then the Jews
I'd say they're hated equally. The difference is one is upfront killing your people and being criminals while the other is subverting and taking over by being a vast majority of who holds the money and power.

That's some opinion from someone who has only known one woman in his life. Does your mom know you think that way?

They're basically equal. Basically, everyone who isn't a white of Scandanavian or germanic stock, who isn't christian (I suppose Catholic technically count), and who isn't at least 10% above the poverty line needs to be cleansed away.

You do realize that attempting to combine 4chan's politics board into one sort of viewpoint is crazy on par with, say, trying to combine 4chan's traditional game board into one sort of campaign setting, right?

Japanese women would have to defend their homes while the men were away often wielding pole-arms or practicing archery.

The vikings had warrior women in addition to numerous other cultures.

When it comes to warfare and combat a blade is the great equalizer. I woman can slide a blade through the slit in a mans helmet just a well as anyone else.
