Interesting, a female knightly order.

Well ... one of the very few general criticisms I have of this site is that too few of the entries go beyond traditional sex roles - for example, almost all of the prostitution/brothel entries involve female courtesans serving male clients.

As it happens, over the decades a full third of my players have been women, and it's been at least 50-50 in my two groups for the last several years, so I make a deliberate effort to spread out the demographics, both in terms of gender and ethnically.

The main reason behind that is that men are the primary employers of prostitutes. While there are certainly women who enjoy the sevices of male prostitutes, there are not enough of them to support male brothels. I have had a large number of female gamers in my groups as well.

By that same token, the overwhelming number of rulers, warriors, guildmasters and indeed pretty much everyone in a position of power or authority in history have been men. In a genuinely egalitarian world, I fancy there wouldn't be the same stigma attached or the automatic presumption (among many others) that men are the only ones who want no-frills, no-fuss sex.

Besides women in black, I like the general concept, too. It is a good place with a few surprises. What do these women fight for?

I've writeups of my world's religions, and at the least the Manannan and Ratri writeups are likely to be pertinent. They're on my list to post.

A nice submission, very atmospheric and i want to use the term Ironic-Neo-Gothic with the presence of women in traditional male roles, the heavy and dark architecture and the overwhelming presence of the color black being set off by the colors of the garden.

Mm, sorry, this new look just screwed with the layout, and I'm getting that "you are not authorized to use freetext" when I try to edit and save.

I love the visuals. It's difficult to get a sense of scale though. My first thoughts were big, but I toned it down after seeing the number of residents.

Is the cathedral open to the public? I can't foresee many guests, but it seems like a great deal of the cathedral was designed to impress.

It's not all that big, actually. The temple is a "cathedral" only in the Catholic Church sense; it's the "cathedral church" of a major player in the Ratri faith's hierarchy.



It is open to the public, though it has far less of a "congregation," per se, as opposed to supplicants seeking aid from the faith's ecclesiastical fighting order. Warwik City is the center of the Ratrian religion (and the Temple District of the New City has the High Basilica of the faith), and there are seven other temples to Ratri in the city, all with large, active congregations.

Visions of Secret Plants Dance in Your Head

       By: rickster

You receive a vision of a rooftop "somewhere close by", where a rare moss grows; in the vision, you know the moss is suitable for greatly enhancing the effects of certain types of potions. Now go and find that rooftop. Don't fall off. (Of course, rooftop runners *will* be taken for miscreants by the local City Watch....)
