It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

You don't have to resort to mythology to realize that many Scandinavian women were quite unusual for their time. There was one jealous wife during an attempted colonization of Vinland who seems to have thought a battle axe to be the best tool for dealing with rivals, much to the horror of her manly Viking companions.

You can find the same kind of wome in other regions too. ;)

I hope that women play a significant role in this game, but I also hope that they are not merely male characters decked out with different pixels. Something a bit more complex than breeders and weaker fighters would be nice, and would give the game some added depth.

I share this sentiment.. not sure if I could come to love another game with poor gender dynamics..

Sounds this way though. One comment by SolSara sounded like Woman would be simply reskinned male characters here.

SolSara is a women herself... I'm sure she don't want to be represented as reskinned male... JUst because genders are more equal don't mean women are like men...

No, this isnt true. Our 3d models for female characters are especially made by our artists to make sure their hips are up to the task of childbirth. In a world where 3d elf babies can use thousands of triangles its an important concern

I know that she is a woman. But what she said sounded like there would be no difference between males, and females.
