It’s frustrating being a nerdy female in large part because the majority of the stuff that fascinates me is geared to be sold to the male portion of our species, resulting it scantily clad female healer classes in (almost) every fantasy war story ever (Eowyn kinda rules).
Then something like this comes along, and I smile. It’s Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor, and it’s a dream come true. Awesome women in brutal armor without an inch of cleavage or chain-mail bikini in the bunch. This is what I picture when I think of what I would be like as a Tolkien-esque fighter; probably a ranger of some kind, definitely hooded.
I was happy to see that Artesia made it onto that page. Sure, she’s a witch/concubine/warrior, which is kinda the opposite of the point of this page, but she always wore the coolest armor.
