Night's Watch, p.105 wrote:You receive a +1D bonus to Fighting against enemies from cultures aside from the wildlings for the first five rounds of combat. Also your Intrigue Defense increases by +1 against such opponents.
Any opinions on whether or not this applies to the Watch?
On one hand, most of them come from cultures where female warriors are an anomaly, but on the other hand, they'd be pretty used to fighting wildlings, and thus, spearwives.
Also, what about Dornishmen, or, to a lesser extent, Ironborn? Those two cultures have female warriors at the highest levels of social standing within the timespan of the novels.
