    We get very excited. We play "pick the accent" and try and guess which state group-mates are from.

    We mean no offense, we just love grouping, and the fact you guys are SO FAR AWAY! I don't know what to make of your reference to superior. Is that a perceived Aussie trait? Self-perceived?

    Easily entertained? Yup. Fun to group with? We hope so!

    There is it again...another male that just hasn't figured out that women's abilities are not tied to their looks.

    I know you were trying to be supportive, but seriously...it will go better for you through your life if you just stop before making the "smart...*and* looks good" type comments.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    i'm a girl, from western australia

    i love meeting (well talking) to new people... but i'm still freaked out that i could tell that someone in my fellowship group was from louisianna after they spoke one sentence the other day.

    i can't even tell the difference in accents between states in australia (besides qld) and to be able to point out that this player was from a particular place like that... made me go a bit o_0

    i've fellowed with ulygar before, i love playing with him just to hear him speak, i even went and got a proper head set so we could have proper conversations

    Lighten up, Francis :P

    Responses like that tend to reinforce certain opinions of women, which I thankfully do not hold to anyway.

    And yes, I saw the winkie but someone else didn't :P

    Now you have made me laugh. Classic redirect/recovery response.



    And just because I'm obnoxious that way...there were no winks in your OP.

    My other unsolicited advice...don't come to a hen party and try to point out how understanding you are of women...it never works. Just leave us to our girl talk.

    Heh, Figgy, I know a few young men who get quite tied up in knots when you are on voice. (No, I'm not going to say who.) They always mention you by name whenever the topic of conversation shifts to 'best voices on E'.

    Wink Re: Girl Gamers

    Hello fellow gamer chicks!!

    I reside on the west coast, and I've only been playing LOTRO since December of last year. I used to play WoW, but my husband converted me (and showed me the light!). <3 him for that!

    I knew I was in trouble when I asked him if I could create a 2nd account for my 6th character So, now I have:

    50 Captain - Evanea
    50 LM - Ola
    42 Guard - Sephorea
    35 Mins - Nadeya
    22 Burg - Sasae
    15 Champ - Gamerchick
    15 Hunter - Limeone

    My husband has a lot of friends at work who play LOTRO, and their wives play as well. It's a lot of fun for us to group around and attack CD or Annunimas together in a full group. We're all looking forward to MoM launching later this year--in fact, we're all planning our vacation when the launch date is released

    I'm so proud to be female gamer on the Elendilmir server! Girls ROCK!

    /cheer

    The first step in the recovery process is admitting you have a problem.

    Now, say it with me...

    Re: Girl Gamers

    I keep seeing this thread and forgetting to reply to it. Girl gamer and mom here. I've actually been pleasantly surprised by the number of girls in LotRO. They are definitely growing! SWG was my first game and I think I met all my fellow "real girls" on the forums. They were all in different galaxies.

    I played as a wookiee (I told my husband I wanted to be a 7 foot blond who got to run around naked all the time), so most people assumed I was a guy. Apparently no one but fellow wookiees could tell the difference. One of my guildies who had known me for over a year didn't realize I was a girl until I announced I was pregnant. Only drawback to being a female wookiee was that I was one of the only ones on the server, so I picked up a few furry stalkers when they realized I was the only girl of their species around. O.O Weird.

    Since most people assumed I was a guy I got to compare attitudes towards me as a male and me as a female and honestly they were not that different. I've been lucky to have run into mostly quality people in my time playing. Since playing this game and realizing how many girl characters are actually girls when I hear them in voice chat, it makes me wonder how many real girls there were in SWG that I just assumed were guys.

    LOL. I usually do create a male avatar in each game to see how things differ. I never use voice chat, so nobody would know either way anyhow. It's got the same kinda thrill as trying to sneak into the boys bathroom as a kid.

    This made me choke on my coffee for some reason. I remember on a school field trip a bunch of us girls raided the boy's bathroom because the line at the girls room was SO long. There was only one boy in the bathroom (luckily in a stall). While we were all sitting there doing our business he finally said, in an awed tone, "Wow. I've never peed next to a girl before." It was too cute!

    I often wonder things like, when boys use the stalls do they check out the shoes of the person next door?

    Probably not.

    OMG! I'm TOTALLY an alt-o-holic. However, I'm resisting the urge to create more by leaving two spots open for the new classes opening with MoM.

    The big question now is...

    Which level 50 toon will I play to 60? Or, do I play all of them a little at a time? Hmmm...decisions, decisions! What are you guys gonna do? Please share!

    That one's easy...

    I'm going to play the Warden to level 20 or so, and if it isn't what I hope it is, then I'm going to level the only other character I play, my Minstrel. :P

    Re: Girl Gamers

    I don't have the problem of alt-oholism, so I'll likely do my hunter, then minstrel.

    Biggest reason I don't do alts is because I never want to go through the Lone Lands ever again :P

    Im an altoholic too *sigh* i can never work out what character i should level from day to day

    But i love all of them!

    Im thinking i might give the two new classes a chance when the xpac comes out, i have two spots on my two accounts saved for them,and then if neither of them takes my fancy i will probably end up levelling my hunter first to 60 and then my captain. Thats providing i havent gotten any other 50s before then though, would really like to get my LM,Guard and Minstrel there sometime :P

    Its really nice to see all the girls around here! Especially the ones from Oz!

    Re: Girl Gamers

    I was standing in EB Games with my three kids today discussing MoM with the guy at the counter. The store wasn't really busy and we started to chat about mmorpg's we'd played. I don't usually get to use gamer-speak in rl (none of my rl friends are gamers) so it was refreshing for me to use all the acronyms and stuff that we do in-game. After a little while I had that 'you are being watched' type of feeling. I glance off to the left.....2 'we work out at the gym for 8 hour a day' type young guys in the fps section looking at me as if I'd sprouted horns....that's cool .... I can deal. Glance to the right.....3 goth/emo teenage guys in the rpg section who were paler than usual and one even had his mouth wide open in shock...ok starting to feel strange. The thing that freaked me out the most were the two really geeking looking nerd types behind me who were smiling like all their christmases had come at once.

    I'm still trying to work out if it was the fact I am a girl....the fact I am older....the fact that I am a mother or all three that had them all looking that way.
