Thread: I have a question that has been bugging me

    Default I have a question that has been bugging me

    In RTW, all of the characters/rulers/generals were male and the females were kinda in the background not doing anything, or even changing over the years for that matter. What I want to know is how you'll be able to compensate for that in places like Andor, where the ruler is always a queen. I don't know if you can make the female characters into actual characters themselves, but some of them led armies in WoT and many were rulers.

    Just kinda curious.

    They might've led armies but they never fought in battles. Except maybe one, I think RJ mentioned. So maybe you could just have the ruler be the male counterpart, like the Prince of the whatever for Andor (Haven't read the books in awhile)

    Question: will you make seperate general units that are female? Can you distinguish between female and male potraits corrosponding with the general's models?

    Myself I have doubts as to whether we can pull this off, but if Andreas has a way, we'll do our best. In MTW it was easier because Kings had seperate portraits.

    G'luck Andreas, I hope your lead bears fruit. :) RJ has so many of the cultures dominated by women, or if not so, at least the women have powerful roles, that it'll seem strange if this is completely ruled by men like R:TW. I mean you've got Tar Valon of course, the Sea Folk have a Mistress of the Ships, Andor has their Queen always, the Seanchan have an Empress right now, Altara's got a Queen right now, Mayene a female First presently, Kandor a Queen also at present, Saldea has a Queen too now, Tarabon has their odd setup where a female always shares in ruling, the Wise Ones have every bit as much power as the Clan Chiefs, Arad Doman's Council of Merchants is predominantly women, Ogier are usually led by a female Elder... in short women pretty much run the world.

    Yes, that is because of the breaking of course, and how the world has developed after that with the general fear of men going mad. My whole plan is the find a culture setting that have two factions in it, the only one is the cartahge-numida, and that do not fit with everything else.... I will have too look over this, when I look in my "papers" something is wrong... But I will solve it:) The aiel is easier, of course since with egypt I can do what i want...

    Will you all be getting rid of the Senate, to free up three factions for whatever?

    Nope, not if Myrddraal hasn't changed his mind. I like the Senate thing anyway.

    Wouldn't that mean that the Senate faction wouldn't be playable?

    Well, it hardly does matter does it? It will not be playable anyway?

    Plus it would be kinda unfair for anybody to play as the Dark One...

    Yep, it would. It will be the goal of the Shadow tribes, to be nae'blis.

    Thats what we're planning, the senate is the Naeblis, and controls Shayol Ghul. There are three Trolloc tribes. It is the goal of the Trolloc tribes to capture Shayol Ghul and hence become NaeBlis, and the goal of all other factions to raise Shayol Ghul to the ground.
