As it says. You start with 4 men and 1 woman .. and you get 2 more male heroes as SG?!

My wife and daughter really like to play their own gender!
Not sure if only men play games in Macedonia, perhaps?!

On the other hand: female heroes are just not heavily featured in the original story...

Thadeus, I understand your concerns, however we'd ask that you be a bit patient with the SGs. Not want to reveal too much, but all your concers will be addressed as the campaign progresses.

We do have a lot of female gamers in Macedonia. In fact, 50% of our company is owned by two women. Representation and equality is what we really want to feature in our games, as was the case with our 2 previous titles.

I'm guessing that the picture on a first and a last page of the manual may be quite spoilery in this matter

It's such a relief to know that some of the Merry Men will be female.

Same here. It's a problem with many games, but for some reason this is disappointing me more than usual. Especially with the bonus characters introduced. It definitely reduces the market for the game - and the main reason I am withholding backing this project right now.

As I've mentioned few days ago, we are adding more female characters in the game.

Here is the update where we talk about that https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/512772051/robin-hood-an...

We are sorry if our stretch goals scheduling left you with an impression that we wanted to make a male dominant cast of playable characters. That was never our intention.

Great, thanks! 4 female heroes to choose from should suffice. I plegded for your game!
(although it remains to be seen how competitive their unique abilities will prove to be)

Especially love the semi-co-op game mechanism! meeple

I'm guessing some of the folks here have never played Shadows over Camelot
