    Read the tribe book. It states multiple times throughout that the main purpose of the tribe is to serve as a force for vengeance. There are three paragraphs that state that since the early 90’s women from other tribes have joined and those are the ones more concerned with being the stereotypical Amazonian warrior-women. Even then it states they are more interested in showing that they are just as badass as men and not interested in the true role of the tribe. Still nothing about enslaving or subjugating men. In fact, I really can’t find anything in this book that supports your view of the...

    The people arguing that this is typical of the Furies don’t understand the tribe at all and usually have a chip on their shoulder in my experience. Mention the tribe around a group and it’s usually met with “I hate the Black Furies.” When you ask why it’s always “they murder all their male children and are man hating rapists who want to enslave or kill all men!” No, just no.
    I find those people almost always have issues with the concept of feminism and don’t realize that seeking equality for women is not the same as wanting the subjugation of men.

    I’m not saying they are without problems as a tribe but with the expanded lore in the other books like the tribe books really flesh out the tribes and show for all the bad, there’s still a lot of good there too. Several tribes have high ideals even if they aren’t often able to reach them. Hell, I even like the Get as there are legitimate things to admire about them. I guess I hold the unpopular interpretations that has a little more hope in the world, that even with all of the bad there are good things about most every tribe that keeps them from being completely awful. That’s what I like...

    It’s just an incredibly reductive and simplistic view of the tribes that makes them less interesting overall. All Get are Nazis, all Furies are feminazis, all Fianna are drunken Irish louts, all Fangs are inbred. I like a world with more nuance and everything I have read after 2nd ed seems to go out of its way to distance itself from the previous bad writing.

    Most people seem to have dropped the crappy parts of that edition but it seems then that the one thing that won’t die is the bad stereotypes of the Furies. Honestly, I’m not surprised....

    I see. I have stuff from 1st ed, Revised, and W20. From what I have seen in other discussions online isn’t 2nd ed the one that’s seen as having some of the worst writing and botched stereotyping amongst all the various editions?

    See, the thing is I haven’t seen a sourcebook that supports the assertion that Black Furies want women to rule and men to serve. They want women out from under the yoke of man. Sure, there are probably misandrist Furies but they are a distinct minority as the tribe is presented more as a cult of fertility and femininity than one of superiority.

    The Furies as a whole are portrayed as being an avenging Tribe. It’s even their tribal glyph, the scales of justice and a lightning bolt for swift punishment. Rape in general is seen as one of the worst crimes against Gaia’s law and natural order and is something the Tribe actively seeks to punish. The Bacchantes camp is one of the most traditional camps and their entire purpose is punishing rapists, murderers, abusers, etc. I don’t think as a rule the Black Furies would condone rape in any way, that level of a lack of self awareness would be comical. I know it’s the “world of darkness”...
