Yes, I am a woman. Yes, I have been gaming for years. Yes, I am also a GM & Storyteller. I’ve played everything from D&D, Traveler 2300, Classic Marvel, Cyberpunk and Shadowrun, Mutants & Masterminds, Pathfinder, WoD line games… yeah I’ve played a lot (I’ve even LARP’d). The first game I ran was Beyond Supernatural (gah) and now I mostly run Vampire V20 and Mutants & Masterminds 3.
My gaming group has run the gamut from me being the only female in a group of 5 guys to my current (and best) group of 3 women and 1 guy. They are my inspiration, my frustration and have spoiled me for any other gamers. They push me as both a GM and a player and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Our other GM/Storyteller is also female and she is one of the best I’ve ever played under.
My weirdest accomplishment in gaming was looking at my Storyteller when Werewolf, The Apocalypse first came out and asking “Can I play James Hetfield? Get of Fenris Ahroun?”. And ya know what? He said yes and the game was fan-freakin’-tastic. Especially the session after we came home from a Metallica concert. ;)
