    Hello, Elendilmir. This well-named lady has a 50 Burglar named Brittany in her signature. Nobody on this server get excited. To avoid confusion I thought I'd interject and say that I am the -Elendilmir- 50 Burglar Brittany :P

    I'm 26 years old, Australian, and I'm only a girl on the inside. Just to make this clear to the lads, don't click that expecting to see the cutest redheaded hobbit girl in the universe made flesh. You will be disappointed.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    /wave to all the other girl gamers!

    I'm not new, been here for over a year now, but somehow I missed this thread! For shame. LoTRO is my first MMO, first time doing any serious video gaming, really. I got into LotRO because I've absolutely loved all things Tolkien ever since I first picked up "The Hobbit" about 10 years ago and after reading an article about how awesome the game was. The weird thing was that I mentioned that article to the guy I'd just started dating at the time and he just happened to have been an Alpha/Beta tester. I played for about 6 months on Meneldor before transfering to E to be on the same server as him. Over a year later and both the game and the boy are still around.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    <raises hand>

    I'm 2 weeks new to LOTRO, but not to MMOs. I'm a 40 yr old mum and have been playing video games of one sort or another for years. I played AC1, which was my fav for about 4 years, so I am a fan of turbine. I have always played female characters, but I have also always played with my husband and kids. I haven't had many issues ingame and have always had a ton of fun and will continue to do so!

    Cheers!

    Myth?? Well I don't mind if you treat me with goddess-like reverence, but I promise you that we are in fact real - elusive, perhaps, but real. I tend not to talk much when I'm in PUGs (or even in Kin Vent for that matter) simply because I'm concentrating on doing my job, or because I'm worried that people won't get my version of sarcasm/humor (many of my real life friends only caught on after a few tries). If we're ever in a group together, however, feel free to call me out as a real girl since I tend to see it as a bit of a badge of honor - as my 16 year-old brother put it: "Since when are you any good at video games?!" haha.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    Well hi everyone, I'm not exactly new, but I've never noticed this thread before! (I don't really come on the forums very often anyway.)

    I've been playing LoTRO since September last year, after having a 6 month break from MMOs - WoW specifically, which I no longer play - and I have two 50's and lead Southern Cross as well! I'm a 20 year old student from Australia, and I love this game dearly, as I have a lifetime subscription and can't wait until MoM is released I also have ab Xbox 360, Xbox and N64 (and a few old gameboys lying around >.>) which I dig up occasionally, heh.

    I also have a R3 Warg named Rikmuz but the PvP is a bit annoying at the moment so none of that happening :P

    This thread would be much more universally useful if it were titled "Single Girl Gamers".

    I'm not a girl, but I'm raising a girl gamer and with this fancy lifetime sub, she might be posting on this board someday so watch out!

    I'll leave now. Bye Bye.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    Hi, I'm new to the game and am trying to behave by not playing the game right now (have to cram for a test) so I'm reading the forums instead. Not as easy to lose a few hours in here as it is running around saying, "Just one more quest, and then I'll log off!"

    I can't say I've been gaming for a really long time...well, 6 years at least, and 4 in RPGs. Started out as a teeny-tiny minority female playing Battlefield 1942 then discovered my first RPG in Anarchy Online. Then I moved on to Guild Wars, WoW, and now I'm here. I explore, therefore I am. And not being big on raiding, I'd seen just about every square inch of Azeroth and Outlands apart from dungeons and stuff, so it was time to move on.

    I'm a student, but am "all growed up". I sold my home and moved back home with my mom so I could go back to school and maybe get into medical school in a few years. I'm currently taking summer school for Grade 12 (does that show my Canadian-ness right there?) physics, then I start a Bachelor of Science program in September. School is SO much better than working at a job I hated...yay for no more insomnia-inducing stress! Woot!

    All of my toons are girls. Mostly because I just think the female characters are nicer to look at (well, to be honest, I did make a couple of Blood Elf male toons in WoW...they're kinda hot for cartoons) but also because I almost feel weird, like I'm misrepresenting myself if I play a guy. Maybe I'm too old to appreciate the anonymity of the intarweb, LOL!

    Anyhow, I have a level 20 hobbit minstrel and am really enjoying the game. See ya around!

    Re: Girl Gamers

    Guy here...

    I've never understood the misconception that no girls play MMOs, or that the ones that do are all nerdy geeks. I started in EQ1, and one of our two guild leaders was female. The guild itself had about a 1:2 female/male ratio, and I knew most of them in RL... they were not geeks. In fact, most of them were quite good-looking women. Eq2, same thing, WoW seemed a bit more male-centric, but still around 1:3 or 1:4 female/male. Lots of Elendilmir creeps are female, as well as the freepside. I'd say almost half of my current kinship is female.

    My ex-wife played EQ1 and EQ2 for a long time, and early on she started making only male characters, as her female characters were the targets of all kinds of comments in-game. She saved one female character as a bazaar mule, because she could charge a higher price for goods than the male ogre sitting next to her... and get it (on a AFK auction toon, no less).

    To those women who deal with the "OMG ur a gurl?!" reaction... We're not all like that. I take people as they are, and I've found that male/female/eunuch/whatever, it doesn't really matter as long as everyone is having fun.

    I used to get that a lot when I played Battlefield. In my gaming clan of maybe 30 or 40 who played regularly, there were about 4 women. My first in-game name was pretty much my real name and I got tons of idiotic comments from non clan members, so I changed my name to something totally gender-neutral. Everyone assumed I was just another guy (until they heard my voice) and I was perfectly fine with that.

    I'm happy to say that in the years since then it has become more apparent that more women are playing these days, so the "idiot factor" contributing comments like "girls don't play games" has pretty much disappeared.

    We delight in the squeals of US-accented excitement over voice, when it become apparent that they are grouped with an Australian Girl!

    hmm no one gets that excited about my voice, I guess the Aussies ARE superior. Even certain Australians make me dribble slightly.

    Tal! (Tara btw) You are so right, but believe it or not I actually wasn't that far away from you playing closed beta as well. I actually got into beta before any of my homeboys did, but I didn't really do that great a job of lvling instead of socializing. Probably why I never ran into you. Odd though, had it not been for them, I would never have played Star Wars Galaxies, much less beta tested this game. Just wish I could've gotten my founders account back
