Since women are not generally allowed [in some cultures, mainly Middle Kingdom] on active military roles, I'm changing that [as the book allows]. Just the Aurians will be the only exception cause they're all women haters. But it is possible [but harder] for women to join the military, unless of course your a Daradja, since it was once a Queendom, the "women are the fighters" sort of bit stayed in. So, there are a lot more female fighters in the Highlands of Daradja. I'll be playing along [mix between PC and NPC] with you along the adventure.
On rolling and pick and choosing, When it comes to rolling options, you have more chance of getting the odd things, while on choosing, I'm only going to allow the common things, unless of course you have a rather lovely idea! For example, being enlisted as a Knight in say...the Watchtower Kings lands as a woman. ^.^
