The Commissar

Hello, look, another getting to know you post.  Hi!

I’m Commissar Carrie, and I am the resident umm, I dunno, fluff mistress?  I’ve been called that before, so I guess it fits.  I guess everyone wants to know about everyone, so here we go.  I’m 26, I live in Reno, NV but I’m from Texas.  I have an accent and a cowboy hat and I’m not super duper experienced with this whole gaming thing, as such.  At least not war gaming.

I started my very first gaming experience ever with Mage: the Ascension about a decade ago and have been playing RPGs ever since.  I started Warhammer 40k right at the dawn of fifth edition, so I am totally new hat.  I always kind of liked the setting though, even if I kinda think Space Marines are lame.  I play Orks and Sisters of Battle, neither one particularly well.  I play to win, but really enjoy losing most of the time.  My major contributions here are likely to be fiction pieces since I am about as far from the competitive side of things as it gets.  I play armies I have fun with rather than ones designed to win, and I’m notorious for taking tons of pleasure when the scatter dice kill off scores of my own troops.  Definitely not tournament level play here.

More about me, hmm…  I feel like this is one of those Playboy interview things.  Turn Ons: Heavy Flamers, David Tennant, Space Ships, Totalitarianism.  Turn Offs: Psycannons, Chris Eccleston, Bicycles, Heresy.  I like long walks in the desert, post-apocalypse, tiramisu and comitting genocide against those who oppose the church.

Thanks for reading!

Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself…

The title pretty much says it all. I’m a friend of HurricaneGirl’s and a srs gamer. A girl gamer at that! I started on D&D waaaaay back with Keep on the Borderlands, then went on to Champions and the rest of glorious geekery.

I’m married with two kids, three cats, three PCs, four iPods and three iTouches in the house. (I built my own PC!). Gaming is my primary hobby and has been for years. Currently I’m playing Rift and some EQ2, Farmville (because somehow I cannot escape), League of Legends and Evony. Sporadically I play the Sims2, Dungeon Keeper 2 for old times’ sake, StarCraft 2.. really lots of things. I also take part in online RP in various formats and forums.

In no particular order, some of my interests/favorites are: The Lord of the Rings (ask about my tattoo!), cats, cooking, J.D. Robb, Charlaine Harris books, Kim Harrison, EverQuest, EverQuest 2, the original World of Darkness, Marvel when they don’t suck, Marvel Super Heroes, Champions, vampires, fantasy, Evony, David Eddings, classic literature, sushi, Top Chef, Project Runway (my guilty pleasure), Dethklok, Johnny Cash, so much other music I can’t possibly list, Terry Brooks, Robert. B. Parker, roleplaying in general, LARP, Big Trouble in Little China, Ladyhawke, Labryinth, Tombstone, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, Young Frankenstein, Dead Again, Harry Potter et al, Bleach, Naruto.. you guys get the idea. I are girl gamer, hear me pwn newbs in the face. ^_^

I’d like to hear from the rest of ya’ll!

Welcome!

We (CommissarCarrie, KatieDrake, MistressofMinis and I) are embarking on a project to try and knit girls who game a bit closer together. We’d like to give new girls (and old veterans) a place where they can find like minded people and get a more positive influence and feeling about gaming. This project will need people to make it go, but I feel that we have some great ideas already and some good people to keep it going. If we can inspire one person out there then our mission is accomplished. (if we have fun doing this, our mission is accomplished too! )
We are certainly looking for contributors and guests and ideas and anything to make it fun. This is not at all a blog for strictly one genre, we are looking from viewpoints from all games and all levels of experience.
Part one, the chatbox, is done and over there —–>

If you are a girl gamer and are interested (and we hope you are), or have ideas please feel free to drop in and chat, comment or send an email to Elorrah@theWarDolls.com !
