Are the initials near the name the resources that they have? I - Iron, S - Stone? Stuff like that?

Yes, in this game we have two types of hills and high mountains as well, so they are I or S for the resource they own.

Yup. Clarifies the hills/low mountains/high mountains between Iron and Stone

There were a lot of lists, but not one for gender. So... the regents of the Flight from the Shadow are:

17 male (probably? maybe it's hard to tell sometimes)
4 female (either human, Sidhe, or both)
5 ??? (I don't know the rest)

In times of stress and danger it makes sense that the people turned to men more readily than women. :)

I'd assume it's more related to how over 90% of the actual players are male, but sure, it seems most of the female scions stayed behind to fight.

This is actually a documentable psychological phenomenon. It happens. Whether it's the *best* thing is obviously debatable, but it does happen.

Nah they stayed behind talking about what to do right up until the Unseelie broke the door down.

Yup, people like to follow a stereotypical leader. It's a cultural phenomenon. Because Tuar ruled for 3000 years, many Sidhelien found it hard to break the habit of showing women more deference than men, regardless of if they deserved it, though after 1500 years most (but not all) of their realms managed to do so. (Braelachheim ruled for 13000 years before that, I wonder how long it took them to stop comparing Tuar's rule to his. More info on him here: http://www.birthright.net/forums/showwi ... Golden_Age )

'It's so, so it's so' is the rule there, the 'why is it so' is missing. People definitely don't turn to all men or any men, just some of them, and there's many situations where they don't need any special persuasion to turn to a woman, just because the woman meets the stereotype (even in cases where it's a male-dominated one) better than any man present.

The Unseelie broke the door down within 50 years, over 900 years before the game's start date, so it's not as though any one of the PCs was really on the ball about fleeing to Cerilia. Maybe that's fair, since they weren't 'Unseelie' yet when they did it.
