The Greek/Roman setting is a great example for that sort of thing. When I mentioned priestesses earlier, it was ancient Greek religion I was thinking of. Greek culture also had the Amazon Warriors which, while a little paradoxical considering that neither the Greek nor the Roman societies produced female warriors, the fact that they existed in their mythology suggests that they were open to the idea in fiction, if not in reality. There do exist examples of female warrior societies in history though, like the Dahomey of Africa as one example.... if the campaign setting features the Greek or Roman pantheon, it may be difficult to justify "no female rangers," considering Artemis / Diana's role in that theology.
I am a gamer girl and a Christian (Mormon).Being something of a traditionalist and disgusted by leftist egalitarian nonsense I do not allow females to be Fighters/Paladins/Rangers or lawful good Clerics. I also impose Strength maximums on human women. I catch a lot of flack from the largely Humanist/liber gamer forums, but that's both a physiological and cultural reality. Medieval Christian cultures did not know of women cavaliers. Even if they had the desire and requisite athletic ability (unlikely) they wouldn't be trained. Note I am not saying women can't fight - but they can no the background required to be Fighters or Priests of God.
:fistbump:I ain't gonna lie. The whole warrior woman thing: pretty hot.
