The Amazons

The Amazons are a wandering tribe comprised solely of women which travel across the plains and forests just outside the Kingdom. The Kingdom has no formal treaties with any of the tribes, but does not restrict access by visiting Amazons as there has been no trouble (as yet).

Amazons are a sub-species of Human and are all females as through a quirk of Fate or the Gods, they are not able to bear male children. This has also led to a certain amount of distrust for all men, varying with the individual. Amazons are either Battlestrider, Outrider or Wildshaper.

Amazon society lacks the basic educational level for magic. Individual Amazons can learn spells, but first they must find someone who is willing to teach them.

Similarly, Amazons do not generally have access to miracles from the Nine Principles, instead following the Path of Nature. It is possible for Amazon Battlestrider and Outriders to gain such miracles as long as they have not learnt any miracles from the Path of Nature and they can find someone who is willing to teach them.

Before an Amazon player can spend any CPs on any magic skill, or buy miracles from one of the Nine Principles, they must gain approval from the Character Ref and name the character who is their teacher.
