LOL. Another feminist trying to ruin everyone's fun.
Fuck political correctness.
While these assholes above me are super-diplomatic, I sort of agree with them to a certain extent. I argued heavily in a prior thread that female characters should not be gimped. However, there is sort of an established setting here which takes place in a male-dominated society. There's a certain extent where I think for game purposes such civilizations should be flexible enough to allow female characters, I think the 4th ed DnD style of both genders being split down the middle of any profession ever is sort of hard to swallow. As such, I sort of understand why they would call themselves the kingdoms of "man" as opposed to the kingdoms of "humans" and the kingdoms of "people" just sounds dumb. If there was a good term for humanity that sounded good and was gender neutral, I'd suggest we use that instead.
Tolkienesque medieval fantasy tends to be both male- and European-centric. It struck me as ironic that, in Elemental, the most evil races appear to be even more white than the default humans. Usually, the "evil races" appear to be modeled after racist caricatures of "savages" and thugs; whereas, in Elemental, so far, they look like diseased versions of the default humans (which nonetheless appear to be white people); it's very consistent; although, of course, there still are quasi-racist Tolkien monsters present, like orcs and goblins. It will be interesting to see if expansions include new continents, peopled by non-white men and women. Really, that could present an interesting opportunity to break stereotypes, by introducing highly advanced "African" factions, for example. Say these people come over from across the ocean, and their magic/technology is so advanced that it makes the white people of the current world look like primitives, and the white people flee in terror from them.
You might be interested in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting, a setting I like to push a lot. There is an Africanized setting featured prominently in the world (not just a far-off region), full of diverse civilizations. I don't know if you play PnP RPGs at all, but it should be interesting.
