: Still, to be fair, there were probably a reasonable

No kiding. Ragged is relative, but it would be worn down by hard service rather then in rags and tatters.
: In any case, if you plan to make a Myth2 movie as a

I think Myth III just does it to make it more interesting.
Ya, but remember the peasants don't have any real rights to begin with so raising the status of women would probably not be to a very high level.
That might be sort of interesting to see as a sub-plot.
