In November 2002, Paul Elliott - author of various free roleplaying games including the excellent ''Zenobia'' - wrote an article called [[https://web.archive.org/web/20030425054832/http://www.rpg.net/news+reviews/columns/tempus12nov02.html The Gygax/Arneson Tapes]] for his Tempus Fugit column on [=RPGnet=]. In it, he imaged that Creator/GaryGygax was inspired by Greecian myths instead of [[DungeonsAndDragons Tolkien-esque High Fantasy]], and created ''Mazes and Minotaurs''

* OneGenderRace: Centaur player characters can only be male, Nymphs can only be female. In the case of centaurs, tritons in the "Triremes and Tritons" supplement, and half-giants in ''Vikings and Valkyries'', it's specifically mentioned that all ''adventurers'' of that race are male. A Dwarf race is available for male Sorcerers, Thieves, and Elementalists in ''V&V'', as well.

** Set up but then subverted in the "Triremes and Tritons" supplement, where tritons are, like centaurs, described as only producing male adventurers. Then the next page shows the female triton class, tritonides, who are noted to be rebels against their society's strict gender roles. And then the ''next'' page has the all-male Delphin class, which naturally mentions female Delphins as existing.
