Using Glory

Ladies use Glory the same as men. Ladies can also use the Hero Point to:
Get Pregnant
For this to occur she’s got to be having sex with someone, of course. If so, the point is spent and she gives birth nine months later to a child. Go to Childbirth Table.
This replaces the normal Childbirth roll in the Winter Phase. A lady can’t have a birth both ways, but can spend the Glory Point after making an unsuccessful Childbirth roll.
Determine Gender
When a lady knows she is pregnant, she can spend a point of Glory to determine the child’s gender, instead of rolling randomly.
