So we had a scenario like this happen in our last game.
>princess's carriage gets attacked by bandits
>guards are killed, princess and hand maidens are taken.
>party gets sent to rescue her.
>we end up carving our way through the bandits and saving her
>princess is unharmed.
While she ended up unharmed in this case, it got me thinking about the scenario and was sort of wondering, wouldnt any time an attractive female character gets captured, the implication probably be that they got raped? I'm not even sure if this is grimdark, but just kind of a logical assumption
>Army took a city that your princess was in?
>one of your female party members is ambushed and kidnapped?
>Orcs within 10 miles of your loved one?
Is that ultimately the realistic outcome in these kind of scenarios, or is my mind subconsciously projecting some kind of "magical realm" thing?

It's your mind projecting. Now, granted, some of those scenerios do end up in rape. But you made it sound like it happens each and every single time a woman gets kidnapped. No, it doesn't. Because some guys don't want to bother with a woman who isn't into it. And they know that if she isn't wet, it's like trying to stick your dick into a tree's dry knothole.

I can think of several reasons why the princess and her retinue might not be raped. Let's put aside moral considerations and assume that the captors are up for it. This is a safe assumption, see the Zimbardo Prison Experiment. We'll stick to cold, rational reasons that otherwise evil captors might not do it.

1) They're holding her for ransom. The value of that ransom goes down if she's been violated. Virginity is prized in many cultures, and if she's to be married off, there might be concerns about the paternity of any issue from the marriage unless there's a sizeable delay. Raping her reduces her value to the Throne, and therefore the ransom. In some societies, a raped princess might have no value at all-- if rescued, she'll be stoned to death by her own family. This happens in many cultures in the world, and more often than you'd think in immigrant communities in W Europe and N America.

2) Vengeance: Usually, raping someone's wives, sisters, mothers, or daughters is meant as a humiliation against other family members. So if the captors rape the princess, then even if she's released later, the king will have to devote considerable effort to hunting down and slaughtering the bandits and their families. Otherwise, he'll be considered weak and some greater foe might be tempted to move against him.

3) In a folk tales, virginity is sometimes associated with magical potential. So raping a fantasy princess might deprive her of her magical potential, further lowering her value as a ransom.

Keep in mind ransom might be to the family, or to their bannermen, or even to a rival royal family.

4) Sometimes there are some rules which Fate Itself enforces. The custom of hospitality isn't just GRRM's invention, it's a major feature of many cultures. Most notably in the bible, where Sodom and Gommorah are destroyed for violating guestright (NOT for the sex itself as is often claimed). Raping someone of royal blood may incur a karmic penalty.

>> No.46301595

Wrong. Whatever money they make off their banditry they go and spend on whores.

>> No.46301615


In ancient cultures, there weren't enough provisions or organization to make holding prisoners of war a long-term possibility. So often soldiers from the winning army raped the captured soldiers of the losing army. I've spoken to some gay theologicians who claim that that's the context of the biblical prohibition on sodomy-- essentially a ban on gay rape, not gay relationships. Not sure it holds water, but historically this WAS a common practice.

>> No.46301663

Dude, I was in a high stress environment surrounded by nothing but dudes and I can safely say most of us never raped, and those that did where not viewed in any light other than the "This is Criminal" and was promptly punished with a fun run to Leavenworth for a decade and a half.

I mean it happens. It's a fact of life we can't escape, but men aren't walking rape machines. Some have morals that prevent it, some don't have any interest in it, and those that lack the morals and have the interest, sometimes just don't have the necessary guts to act on it.

Bandits more likely, but remember that depending on the society, some people are bandits literally just to survive or because they're fleeing death. Not every bandit band has been a bunch of murdering rapists, that tends to make things hard. It's usually easier to steal their shit and randoms their women. If you get to raping some knight may decide to be wicked chivalrous and bring some of his buddies to fuck your shit up. Especially in setting based on Christian medieval Europe where that type of thing was frowned on.

History, contrary to what some want to believe, was not a constant litany of rape. Least not until you get into the ancient world, then it was a constant litany of rape and murder.

Most handmaidens are taken from semi-powerful nobles daughters. And even if not, they're usually close enough to the princess that if something that bad happens to them, she'll press it with her father.

So really, it's a bad idea. However, it may be smart to threaten them with it to get leverage on her. Really though, kidnapping a princess is bad situation to be in. People tend to react to that with violence on an especially grand scale. Refer to Troy, when it was consensual kidnapping.

Or you know, the bandits are smart enough to realize if they keep the princess captured and unharmed, when they trade her for the ransom, they might be able to get away scot-free. But if they rape her, she might yell it out during the trade, at which point the kingdom decides to send every possible resource they have to murder the bandits and the next 7 steps of kin they have.

>> No.46302428

It depends on who the person is. If an army catches a nobleman's family, they're not going to rape all the women. Those women are probably related to the guy they work for, because nobility, and in either case are worth a ton of money. Imagine how dead you'd be if you raped your boss's cousin.

If a bunch of bandits capture some random adventuress who's hot, then maybe, but then maybe not. A spoiled woman wasn't even worth ransoming in some cultures back then, so they might have not wanted to ruin a potential paycheck. Orcs are sort of the obvious culprit here because they're orcs, but they're just as likely to kill everyone as rape anyone.

Soldiers are a mixed bag. The Puritan soldiers in the English Civil War famously refused to even pillage, because they considered the behavior degenerate. Generally though, soldiers are bastards in any era, and can only be kept in line through strict discipline. And even that will very often fail when a city falls.

Because you've got this random soldier you've captured on the battlefield. His home is hundreds of miles away, behind city walls.

Also, because you're not trying to give him a grievance to nurse for no reason. You're not doing this because you love sex. You're doing it because it hammers home that you're strong and he's weak, vulnerable, and at your mercy. And because you want to hammer home that if he comes marching against you, that he'll either die or walk home humiliated and bleeding from his asshole. He'll have that grievance, but it's in service to a larger cause.

For the Romans, who came later, the approach was simpler. Kill all the men, cart away all the children as slaves, and "cohabit" with the women of childbearing age while you camp for the winter. Next year, you'll march away to leave single women raising half-roman kids.

Since we're talking rape and rome, it's worth mentioning that Boudica's daughters were raped by the Romans. The romans were trying to show who was boss in a dispute about who ruled her lands. Instead, the dishonor done to the girls resulted in a massive uprising that was immensely expensive to crush. Rape, especially of nobility, is a risky ploy even if you're the dominant power and already occupying an enemy.

BTW all these reasons are how real "rape cultures" evolve. Not the marx-derived "capitalism is rape, therefore the west is rapey" shit, I mean the real rape cultures such as Japan's treatment of their asian conquests, the practices in the middle east and africa, rape as punishment for political dissent in southeast asia, rape as used by Beria under communism, etc etc etc. The same social norms that make it so horrible to people also help discourage people from doing it and taking the risk of crossing that line-- and also lead to the grossly unjust treatment of victims of rape.

By the way, it's yet another good reason that a DM should steer well clear of these issues if at all possible. It's just not worth it.

When looking to sell back a prisoner whose father commands an army that could easily wipe out you and your men, you typically don't want her sullied or damaged in any way. You want her going back to her father if anything talking about the nice, chivalrous bandits who didn't lay a finger on her during her captivity, because that means he'll be less inclined to go to extreme ends to rip your faces off or send assassin's after you for the rest of your days

>>Army took a city that your princess was in?
Depends on the army, and the history we're emulating. Back in the bad old days, classical and earlier times, when there was no such thing as "international diplomacy", oh yeah, rape town, population: princess (and everybody else), but once you get to the point where war is conducted between nations that intend to not be at war with each other forever and ever, the period when the intent of war is to pound the enemy into submission, not eradication, then raping high value targets would be completely illogical. Even the older meaning of the term, rape as in sacking a town, raiding it, pillaging, whatever, that wouldn't be well received either. Better to keep the actual city and its people intact and simply take it over, so the resources they gather can belong to you now. The soldiers still get their dicks wet because every city has prostitutes and they'll be happy to have horny men with some kind of pay available. Besides, by this era, every army has a huge camp following that will radically complicate any attempt to go rape-wild.

Of course, as you get even more modern, to the point you leave the era of camp following behind and enter mechanized warfare, where a soldier can spend a week on the road and end up in a town thousands of miles from home where nobody he knows has ever been or will ever be, and he's surrounded by bombed out houses and crying families, then you get rape numbers climbing back up. But most militaries, by that point, take that sort of thing into consideration, thus the era of leave and R&R is born, which may involve rape or forced prostitution as well.

It'd depend a great deal on the morals, knowledge, circumstances, and motivations of the bandits or whatever the group was. Morals is fairly simple, either they're willing to do it or they won't - of they have a line that will be subject to one of the other factors.

Next question I would ask is why are they doing it. If it's a political capture for ransom or other professional operation by an organized and disciplined group, then treatment is likely to be much better. If you break the prisoner, they become progressively less valuable and you have fewer things you can use as a threat if who you are dealing with becomes recalcitrant.

Conversely, bandits are going to have a hell of a time kidnapping someone, getting ransom, and getting away with it without being killed afterwards. Hostage-taking generally only works if you have a powerful state or other organization behind you that can protect you from consequences. Otherwise you end up like the captors in most hostage situations, dead during or immediately after the situation resolves. Frankly speaking, the bandits are probably better off taking what they want (property and/or sex) and hoping no one ever finds out who the perpetrators are. They have very little incentive to treat captives well. Even a middling option like selling the princess to a third party is going to frequently end badly for the bandits, unless the princess is good enough to sell off without knowledge of her identity being included. Buyer will either give her back to dad or want to cover up the trail so dad doesn't find out who they are. Either way, this ends with bandits six feet under.

Some fantasy opposition is just going to do what they are going to do and probably not care. They may just be bound by instinct or simply have no diplomatic relations or frame of common reference.

>> No.46302567

>>one of your female party members is ambushed and kidnapped?
Wouldn't that depend greatly on why she was kidnapped? If it's to weaken the party, surely an assassination would be just as good (unless resurrection magic is so available, in which case kidnapping would be particularly difficult). If the villain wanted to kidnap the heroine just to rape her, then sure, though in that case the mooks would probably not be allowed to touch her themselves. The reverse is also possible, kidnapping for some other motive, in which case she's as good as a princess.

This. You don't want to take those kinds of risks, because ransom is already a very dangerous game.

One case where it might come up is illustrated in Song of Ice and Fire. In the books, Jaime is maimed by one of his father's own mercenaries, who'd switched sides. It was presented as a whim, but in fact it was an attempt by the mercenary to protect his own interests by making it politically impossible for the two sides to come to terms, and for men on Hoat's new side to switch.

Sometimes, an atrocity can be used to force the hand of the leader in whose name you did it, or as a bridge-burning move to close yourself off from an otherwise tempting option.

Say the Russians had charged the Fulda Gap in the Cold War. They're rampaging through Germany, and suddenly offer a ceasefire. Germany finds this intolerable after their losses, especially given that they'll lose still more land. To France, this may not seem like such a bad deal. The war hasn't reached their border yet, but it's getting there. The costs and benefits are different for each partner, so they'll disagree.

Sometimes strategically burning a bridge helps bind the allies to one another. Or the diffferent people in a group. Sun Tzu suggests much the same when he points out that men who think they're doomed and with no alternative will fight with incredible bravery and tenacity.

It's weird to consider, but sometimes atrocities are calculated acts.

Exactly. By erasing all avenues of retreat, you can bind your troops together.

Another example is the head of Stalin's secret police/ spy group, the NKVD. (Later renamed KGB). Beria was pretty awful by any standard. He'd drive down the street, see a hot girl, point her out, and then his men would have to track her down, find some pretext to arrest her, and then she'd be gang raped to death. Pretty nasty, right?

Also part of Beria's strategy. By making his close associates accomplices in his crimes, and making his crimes heinous enough that they'd be impossible to forgive, he was ensuring their loyalty. If Beria ever went down, then THEY would go down. And when eventually he did, so did they...

These bandits just kidnapped a princess and her hand maidens. They likely had every intent of ransoming her back to the kingdom.

In that instance, raping her would be a monumentally bad idea. Even raping her hand maidens might also be a bad idea depending on the king's personality.

There's a bit of interesting history about that, apparently the king of Ethiopia (which was called Axum at the time) sheltered Mohammed during his exile from Mecca, so as a result Mohammed declared making war on Ethiopia forbidden unless Ethiopia started it.

Friendly reminder that it's literally easier (and more enjoyable for most people) to earn the money to buy sex than to bother with rape. In case that wasn't clear enough, let me rephrase: rape isn't about sex.

So, lets say your bandits have a serious fucking grudge against the king. You know, the kind you get when you see your family drawn and quartered while you're bound and forced to watch. Then maybe you rape and murder the princess and send her corpse back as a message. You probably aren't expecting to survive much longer at this point, though.

On the other hand, let's say you're just your normal, run of the mill, rather rob bread than coin, just out to survive type bandit. In that case, you don't rape the princess even if she's the first woman you've seen in a decade. You ransom her, run somewhere far away, use your small fortune to impress a seamstress, and settle down with your 12 kids.

It's not a matter of the morality of where you stick your dick, and it's not a matter of getting laid now or later. It's like comparing breaking into someone's house and eating their food to going home and eating your own or buying from a restaurant. On one hand, you have an inherently violent, invasive action, and on the other hand, you have the normal way that normal people do things. I'm sure that someone here will argue for the efficiency of just breaking in to the nearest house and rooting through their pantry any time you get hungry, but it's not really a thing anywhere in the world. Even professional thieves who commit burglaries to make their living are looking to make a profit every time they break into a house, not just to satisfy a biological need.

There is no way that ransom would work. You'd have an arrow between your eyes instead when you did the handover. The only value you are possibly getting off the princess is what money and jewelry and other assets she has. After the fact you are going to have to run for it immediately. You are probably better off killing her when you do, because the added anger from the death is likely outweighed by them not knowing who you are and sitting around saying "my the princess is late" while you are getting a head start as opposed to them starting off immediately when she shows up. Reasonable people might disagree depending on circumstances.

Now whether this average bandit rapes her is a different story. It delays them, which isn't smart, but she's also probably better looking than any girl they would have ever ended up with and they're probably doomed anyway. It's a strict calculation on morals versus desire. Rape is completely about the sex, particularly in these circumstances.

And no, you don't rape the princess unless you enjoy the thought of dying a horrible public death.

Let's take this relatively slow.
Human breeding entails oxytocin. It is literally difficult to breed with someone who you don't care about. Far from impossible, but if you read the accounts of kidnapping/rape victims there are shockingly many where the rapist is unable to get/keep it up without some other stimulation/drugs.

Second. Most people have mothers or sisters or daughters and any enemy you find relatable enough to find sexually attractive will also be an enemy that you find relatable enough to see those people, whom you ostensibly care about, in your potential victims. Which means even "AL: Usually Evil" armies have a reason to hesitate.

Third. Rape isn't necessarily helpful, there are whores and sluts who are litterally begging for your business in that regard. Beating your slaves or captives or otherwise forcing yourself on them can reduce their value, work-ethic or efficacy as well as creating other problems down the line. Which could be fine if your intent is to raze/ravage but otherwise could increase your own costs of occupation.

Fourth. Rape isn't easy. substitute in a 100lb hairless chimpanzee for that 100lb woman, you will see why you may not necessarily want to try and expose your most vulnerable parts to it while it is in a time of most desperate aversion. Humanoids are dangerous, devious, willful, cunning and strong. Granted, you are probably bigger and stronger but that doesn't stop you from walking away with a chink bitten out of your face or your Jacobs sliced through.

When there are the aforementioned sluts down the road asking for your dick and a good time is it really worth the risk just to get back at your overbearing mother?

This is just wrong. Rape has been seen, for a very, very long time, pretty similarly to how it is today. A horrible crime, almost as terrible as murder (or to some people, worse than murder).

Second, generally speaking, people in power already have power, so they don' need to prove it by rape. They might humiliate, scorn, deride, and otherwise verbally abuse their captives, but rape is something the weak and the unmanned need to reassure themselves that they are men. Bandits are often weak and unmanned, otherwise they wouldn't be bandits. But not every bandit is stupid either.

Soldiers engage in rape because they haven't been around women in months, maybe years - something people forget about when they isolate testosterone laden menfolk in isolation from the rest of the world and then unleash them on enemies. That isn't an accident - desperate men fight harder and with more viciousness. It also makes them prone to satisfy desires they haven't been able to indulge in months or years (hence the raping and pillaging).

Finally, the entire purpose of capturing someone is because they are valuable in some manner. Raping said person not only devalues them, it does nothing for getting information out of them. Torture works much better - and it sucks as an interrogation technique.

Raping a princess - or someone of equal value - devalues them and garuntees that the captors are going to just fucking be slaughtered mercilessly if they are captured. That's the equivalent of stealing a priceless Ming vase and shattering it, then expecting someone to buy it back from you.

Orcs don't need to rape either. They probably have men and women fighting alongside one another, and thus don't actually need to worry about their menfolk raping every female in sight. Lizardmen probably only mate seasonally, so rape is out of the question for them. Goblins like torturing people, rape would be the furthest things from their little minds. Elves wouldn't bother - they have magical means to fuck shit up if they want to go that route.

Go home, /pol/.

The rapists among the refugees are raping because they can hide among the crowd of the other refugees, they don't have any documentation, they're probably going to have moved on in a week, and because they're (as an individual) fucked up enough, whether it be from frustration, rage, or just straight up mental illness, to commit rape.

The "Allah wills it" is just a weak excuse they can fall upon when they get caught. It's like the more extreme version of the people who actually go in for the "money back guarantee".

Yes, technically, the guarantee says that any person who doesn't like it for any reason can get it refunded the full price, but the only people who actually do are the people who are either EXTREMELY dissatisfied with it, or the scumbags who just want to not have to pay for it.

It's the same with refugees and rape. The rapists are either pushed to the breaking point with nothing to lose, or just pure evil. The writings that say "ayy mang, go rape" are not the reason for the rape, just an excuse to justify it to themselves.

> most of the commoner population is raped unless the army is disciplined or has moral objections

Some, perhaps, but most? Unless the army is extremely immoral or it is generally considered right and proper to do so by their society, I would expect rape to be the exception, not the norm.

A lot of the men involved will have mothers, sisters or wives back home, and will like to think they have at least some moral standards. Let's be honest, they would be more interested in taking your daughters' necklace than her virginity. There's plenty of prostitutes who would do the same with much less mess and thrashing about.

Note that this is just violent rape as part of the capture of the town. It does not include inducing now destitute or orphaned girls/boys to have sex with soldiers for money or taking slaves with which a soldier may later have sex, even though both may be considered rape today.

Not every bandit is evil OP. They're certainly not good, but not all of them are amoral beasts. They're humans, and have human thoughts and morals just like anyone else, usually it's circumstance that drives them to banditry. Sure, some learn to love their new job and some actively choose to be bandits, but the point is that being a bandit does not automatically make you evil.

My point being, just like you probably don't think about raping women you're alone with, not every kidnapper will want to rape their victims. Some will draw a line there because they're only doing this because the harvest was bad and they have a family to feed. Some will draw the line there because it's bad enough they're bandits, they don't want to become even worse people than they already think they are. Even the actually evil ones may decide against it, maybe because they still have some sort of ethics they hold to, or maybe because that's just not their thing. If it's someone important like a princess, they might decide against it simply because they don't want an angry king hunting them down after they get their money, since it's already bad enough they kidnaped her in the first place.

My point is; No OP, not every scenario like that ends in rape. Believe it or not, even bad people can have limits. That kind of attitude is exactly why some people never play female characters and never have living family members: because of the idea that everything bad involving women ends in lolraep.

It can happen, and its a concern, but it isn't always going to happen. Its usually a concern mostly for people that are pretty but otherwise unimportant.

That princess? Yeah, chances are she is not getting raped. She is much too valuable as a political tool or ransom coupon to waste on a 5 minute fling like that, after which she is despoiled and her value drops dramatically. You either sell her back to her parents for enough gold to pay for the siege, or you 'marry' her and secure a legitimate claim to the family lands and titles.

That party member? Waaaay too dangerous to try that, and unless your group got railroaded super hard the enemy should know that by being able to count the bodies. You don't need to use your arms to perform an unarmed attack in DnD, you just need to slam some part of your body into the enemy. A modestly leveled adventurer could conceivably pelvic thrust a low level guard into negative hp in one round, breaking off their penis and leaving them bleeding to death on the floor of the cell.

It depends on the intention of the kidnapper. If they're doing it for the money, the less harm they do to their captives higher are the chances the person that was captured and their relatives won't pursue a violent retribution on them and higher is the chance for you to escape incognito.

Any person who insists on rape for realism purposes is someone you can safely kick out of your group. You never need to justify not including rape, torture, mutation, castration, and other historical atrocities in your games.

That's not true, they had "comfort women" to take care of soldier's needs. Taking it out on civilian population was discouraged.

>BTW all these reasons are how real "rape cultures" evolve. Not the marx-derived "capitalism is rape, therefore the west is rapey" shit, I mean the real rape cultures such as Japan's treatment of their asian conquests, the practices in the middle east and africa, rape as punishment for political dissent in southeast asia, rape as used by Beria under communism, etc etc etc. The same social norms that make it so horrible to people also help discourage people from doing it and taking the risk of crossing that line-- and also lead to the grossly unjust treatment of victims of rape.

You aren't including the 'wives' that European imperialists took. Before Marx wrote anything. Why not?

And rape culture means something. It's the environment where things that are rape are considered to be not-rape. Like sleeping with someone who says no, or is unconscious, or is drugged. Even if they earlier said 'yes', any no cancels it, and anything that prevents asking also cancels it. That's rape culture. It's not high fives over raping women, it's considering things that are rape to be not-rape.

The cultures you are describing are not 'rape culture', though that might be a fitting term for them, you ruin it by conflating it with an existing term that means something else.

>Princess diplomacy

Reminds me of that movie with Jack Black where they kidnapped a woman but that woman manipulated his character into thinking he's gay. So in the end he was trying to suck his own dick because he was convinced that he liked that.

They didn't plan on raping her anyway.

>Is that ultimately the realistic outcome in these kind of scenarios, or is my mind subconsciously projecting some kind of "magical realm" thing?

Nothing to do with "magical realm" - you're projecting your own fetish.

Kidnapping and Raping prisoners - particularly high value political targets was rare to the extreme in history. It serves basically no purpose for the captors, and in the case of anything where you need the prisoners alive might harm your overall objective.

Not "common", but happens. A few hundred cases out of armies of 10s of thousands.

Which isn't the situation from OP, which was about specifically capturing women in a targeted approach and raping them - which really didn't happen as frequently as you would think. Largely those tales were just propaganda of the age to incite people against a foe. "Those damn foreigners, kidnapping our womenfolk and raping them".

In reality, most rape in medieval and other periods of history was much like today - the attackers were known to the victim, most likely family or friends or people in positions of authority locally (Prima Nocta and similar practices). Outright kidnapping people for the sole purpose of raping them, particularly powerful heroes or personalities of state is both unnecessarily difficult for the sake of getting your rocks off and far too risky for the classic personality type of a rapist. Hence screaming "fetish bait" for anyone who immediately goes there.

>princess's carriage gets attacked by bandits

See, if I was a bandit, I just KNOW I could sell that carriage to a rival kingdom.

I *KNOW*, their spymaster could think of at least 10 different schemes that could only be pulled off with that carriage.

I also know the carriage can't accidentally choke to death. And if the horses pulling it die, well, always can steal someone else's horses?

Now, this is important for one reason: try doing the same with the princess. What happens? Well, they're basically obliged to double cross a hard working highwayman for the sake of some token gesture because of blue-borne nobility or a distaste for loose ends. And just as bad, we don't get paid.

So dead AND dead poor.

But they can't pull that trick with the carriage. They try a double cross, we torch the carriage, nobody gains anything. Hell, we could even provide rather compelling circumstantial proof that they were behind this and it was all an incompetent kidnapping, and the princess was too savvy for them to succeed. Give the carriage kingdom a casus belli. Suddenly doublecrossing for a discount isn't so smart for the spymaster.

Why kidnap the princess at all? Leave her by the side of the road, hell even leave her a horse and a rider's hood. Nothing personal after all, we got more than we could want and probably the look of confusion for the courtesy would be worth it.

Bluebloods are nothing but tricks and woes.
