I've never blogged...ever...on any site whatsoever, so why now? I just wanted to know what everyone thinks about this topic.
I mean, what's so special about "Gamer Chicks" or female gamers? I am one myself, and honestly it's not that big a deal is it? I have met several women gamers and they play many more MMORPG's or console games than I ever did in my entire lifetime. Perhaps it's because I like to role play more than ROLL play, that I'm more into the pen and paper aspect than video games.
Though my experience is pretty much limited to 2nd edition D&D and a bit of Hero system, I'm not as well-versed on rules and gaming worlds. I have only been exposed to a few limited sources. Only recently have I been able to read up on other games out there, and it's mind-boggling to me how many of them there actually are.
The only MMORPG I've been fortunate to play is Final Fantasy XI, the online game, and I'm content with playing that on PC, as I've never owned any sort of gaming console, save for the old-school Commodore64. I'm not sure how many of you would remember that.
It's been a fun experience here at PPG for me so far, meeting a lot of excellent people and participating in several homebrew playtests. Given the fact I love playing female elves, playing a human isn't exactly my cup of tea but I'll do it if I have to.
Apologies for the rambling but to be honest, I haven't really blogged before so this might be a whole bunch of random thoughts strewn together by the time I'm finished but we'll see.
I find I'm always in a role-play mood, and I really have no preference as to the style. It can be fantasy or sci-fi, or even a serious murder case, I love adventure and action. The only qualm I have is the dice roller in the chat room...it absolutely HATES me...but then again, I have no luck when it comes to getting decent rolls even with the dice I own!
Anyway enough prattle...this might be my only entry but it's a long pointless one...as many blogs can be.
