Hey Subs, when you treat women like people, who enjoy the same hobbies as dudes you'll find that D&D and indeed any tabletop RPG is a great way to meet women outside of a bar.

By and large female RPGers tend to be bi and large

If you're going to play 2nd ed you might as well just switch to Rolemaster.


Go to Paizo.com and get all a version of 3.x ed that actually works.

/Refuses to play 3.x except for Pathfinder

Ghastly: Girls played D&D with us when I was in high school. Of course in the early 80s it was assumed if you were playing D&D you were having bisexual satanic drug orgies.


Lucky bastard.  When I was in high school that myth had long since cleared up.  Farking goths took all the freaky chicks(although I managed to snag one for a few months).

That's why there's Pathfinder.

What a socially-maladjusted D&D player with no hope of ever getting near a girl may look like.

They're in trouble, because no matter what they release, people are going to remember their reaction to 4th edition and project that feeling on 5th.  Tradition and memory of good times is what brings people back to D&D, as opposed to other RPGs, and now that those memories are hurt, it's a harder market for Hasbro.

I just finished play testing 5th. They took all the worst elements of 4th and combined it with the leftovers from 3.5 that never worked. My feeling is that they are trying to give D&D the feeling of an MMO, but in so doing they're ruining the game.


I'm pretty sure there's never been a more completely wrong statement ever said about a game or a game-related product. It's like you had a dream in which you were playing a 5th Edition D&D that has never and will never exist. Was there a unicorn or a talking keg of beer involved?

The playtest materials for D&D Next show a very numbers-light, narrative-based game that relies heavily on the imaginations of the players and the fiat of the GM. There's no pre-generated attacks/powers that you activate, you're not thinking in terms of "builds", etc. There's no "roles" anymore (Defender, Controller, etc.), which was what made 4E feel so MMO-ish to me. It feels to me as if they took 3.5 and reeled it back toward the narrative focus of 2E. Even relative to 3.5, they removed a lot of the positioning bullshiat that more or less required you to use miniatures. Our Next group still hasn't use miniatures, just an abstract map on a whiteboard to give a spatial idea of what the room looks like.

Don't like Next, that's one thing. But don't lie about it just to get people to be just as smarmy about it as you are.

derio42: PC LOAD LETTER: I played D&D and I am so socially maladjusted, this is the woman I married:

[img.fark.net image 420x580]

I've seen this picture posted every once in a while on fark for years, and I still don't know what it's about or what it's referencing.  Something about homeschooling?  Tineye search gives me a meme-generated image of the girl with the caption "Oats: Let me have some".  Still it makes no sense.  I can't seem to find anything on knowyourmeme either.  Can someone explain what in the world it's about?


I found the thread after much digging once. Basically it was a thread about homeschooling and someone said that he was homeschooled and she was the one he married, thereby proving that he's not a mutant reject. Of course, if you post a pic of your wife on Fark, that's going to generate some commentary. Namely the teeth. THE NEVER ENDING TEETH.

I was in college when White Wolf hit the height of their popularity. The sci/fi fantasy club went from a handful of women my freshman year to majority female. It seems like the trend has continued with a lot more female gamers then there used to be. It probably helps that the gaming community in general has cracked down on bad hygiene.

Really? I thought it felt more like they were trying to scale back the numbers creep, and were skimming some of the better elements of 2nd edition.
