A funny video that DnDChick posted up over at Necromancer Forums a while back that I missed until recently. I thought I would share with the Paizo Peeps. NSFW mostly for language.

Female Armor Sucks

I approve, and offer this video:

Prehistoric Dog

(The armor plays into it about halfway through.)

This is so true, it's embarrassing.

And I like the end where things get flipped around.


I haven't watched the video linked above, but I think one of the most ridiculous examples of female armor in a WotC-approved product was in the Shackled City Adventure Path. I don't know the name of the adventure (as I've only played through the beginning), but one of them begins with a huge full-page picture of a woman scantily clad in a suit of armor that (if I'm not mistaken) consists of a thong and a huge gauntlet that covers one arm. And according to her stat-block? It's half-plate. You know, half-plate- the armor that's more restrictive than full plate.

Uh... yeah.

Funny. :)

Ha! That armor obviously has an enchantment bonus! Besides in classic, traditional fantasy (the only fantasy, really!), women are always sorceresses or priests. Spellcasters need no armor for their duty is to enchant the party's might warriors, such as myself, with powerful spells that adds a further shine to our armor.

Now then, back into the kitchen, woman, and bake me up a +5 Shield of Righteousness to go with my +5 Longsword of Self!

Ha!

HA! Thanks for posting :))


Hehe, indeed very funny.

However once you get into the purview of magic armor, you can pretty much justify anything.


No, seriously! It's more effective than plate!

Whenever I see this topic crop up, I always count how long it took before me before someone invokes the fuzzy thong/barbarian loincloth.

It's rare that the double-standard goes this long without comment.

Well, that's probably because it's invoked at the end of the video. So in this case, first comment.
