I wonder how much this has to do with the Lunar overlords not putting much stock in tribes ruled by women, feeling that they might be more easily manipulated and/or less likely to foster rebelion. HOw likely that would be in a society which includes Jar-Eel and all those other tough women I wouldn't like to say.

In Barbarian Adventures the Anzarni Clan (which I adopted for my game) is ruled by Domast Longear, who is considered a weak and suplicant ruler by the local Lunar establishment.
