The Naked Truth About Female Fantasy Armor
Ever want to kick ass as a female character in a game, only to discover that your armor is about as sturdy as a packet of toothpicks? There were female warriors in the ancient Norse and Celtic world. But realistically most of them were wearing more than a chain mail bikini and they certainly weren’t fighting in stiletto heels. I know, I know, I know; modern day fantasy games and movies aren’t a historical truth. It’s just for fun. But here is a solution below, to the female armor problem that I quite like.

That may be where the fantasy meets the armor. While it’s nice to imagine Valkyries as voluptuous, spear-wielding, war maidens in metal bustiers, it’s often sobering to remember it was their job to wade through armies of the dead and choose some to go home to Valhalla. With all those left over pointy bits lying about the battlefield, you’d think they’d at least put on a decent pair of boots.

I agree. It shows the males in full body gear, suited up and ready to kick ass, but then the woman looks like a sex object, like she’s meant to be touched rather than “save the world”, like the so-called male warriors. I want this to stop now, and I hope for gender equality in RPGs and games.
