    This question has concern the most important scintific minds over centurys...
    I actually know about some Ladys who play D&D, Challenging (and they play like if they were writting a book!!) etc.. but in the majority they are in their second XV...
    So.. my qustion is.. the Lady who played D&D with age of( 25, 24, 23) and more strange that i have never seen 19, 18, 17, 16-15(human years) exist.. or are another beatiful romantic-myth like the unicorns??

    No, they're not. We even had a thread on this like, a year ago. It had a huge list and everything.

    That said, I am not trying to make fun of you or anything like that. Just letting you know that the title "The D&D Lady Players are a myth?" sounds REALLY wierd. Kinda like there is a group D&D players who "play ladies." I heartily suggest it be changed to "Lady D&D Players are a myth?" or something similar.

    I know a few personally, though they've all been introduced to the hobby by their boyfriends. But here at the forum you can see that there are quite many girls/women around.

    I think I've read somewhere on the net that women are generally more interested in games that focus on storytelling rather than tactical combat. While it's possible to play RP-heavy D&D campaigns, D&D has its roots in wargames (and that dread Gygaxian dungeon crawling shadow looming over it), and it could be that women like more freeform RPGing or WoD where combat is more abstract and doesn't get in the way of storytelling.

    That is just a very rough generalisation based on someone else's research/guesswork and I have no statistics to back that up, so don't sue me if you don't fit that mould.

    I'm male myself, and I'm equally fond of storytelling and combat when they mesh well together. I've found that when I play D&D tabletop games with my old pals, it's usually combat-oriented, but when I play D&D online with strangers, it's much more RP-oriented.

    Hola!

    I play ad&d since I'm 23, did an earlier attempt when I was 19 but couldn't find a good group (the boys-group I joined first feld a bit strange with me around, so I quit). I was asked by a friend (girl) to join her group, which at that time had 4 ladies and 4 men. Later on we played with 4 ladies and 3 men...
    I play a fire-mage named T'ze'hai since I began, one who learned to fight with sword and bow-and-arrow and who likes to turn enemies to barbeques...
    I also played a thief, a bard, a priestess of Leira, another wizard...
    One of my game-boyfriends is a centaur.
    At the moment I run my own group (I'm the goddess so to speak, or the dungeon mistress), a small group of longtime players (all male...).
    I have a Nathanatar

    Gamus gynae is a rare and exotic specimen of the Geekanthropus family. Commonly mystaken for a mythical creature, Gamus gynae is merely illusive and endangered, as it's natural habitat is frought with such dangers as the related predatory species Gamus lecheraii. Gamus gynae should not be confused with a similar species Nerdus femina. Though the two often share similar habitats, their plumage and mating behaviors are quite different.

    Oddly enough, my father isn't even interested in that stuff... probably never was. He's more of a pool player as of course he wins trophies for the sport / hobby.

    Well, my sister plays AD&D. She is also one of the better DMs I have played with (nr 2 of 7). (But that's because she was taught by me). And yes, she runs her own gaming group as Dm in addition to play with mine group.

    Then again many would say that "girls don't listen to heavy metal, only ot gothic and emo stuff", and she has found many bands for me to listen to (Nevermore, Kamelot, Iced Earth)

    They're probably drawn to other games more, but they're not completely unheard of.

    Of course, they've probably learned to be pretty wary of some of the male players which may be partly why they aren't noticed so much :P

    You know, way back in the deep dark depths of high school, I went to a "games night" at a comic shop... Suffice to say 'tweren't the games I were expecting Now that I think of it, I don't remember seeing any D&D there... Magic and Warhammer, but no D&D. Then again, I think I was the only girl... maybe D&D's becoming a girly game
