Campaign of the Month: June 2012
Amazons (actually the name given to the female warriors) are separatists, and usually shun contact with the world outside their home of Meriskyra. The rare individual may venture from their home due to quest, banishment, or other legitimate reason. Within the society, Amazons have three distinct roles in their society. Women form two classes, depending on their talents as young girls: the Amazon Warrior and the Women of the Hearth. The Warriors are trained for war and hunting. They are the defense of the community. They learn mounted combat, archery, and the use of the Labrys (battle-axe) and spears. The Hearth women are taught agriculture, politics, and domestic affairs. The third class are the male members of the community.
