  1. Feminism is for all :D

    That last picture reminds me of "The Dictator" by Sacha Baron Cohen. http://www.eurweb.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/sacha-baron-cohen-dictator-press-conference.jpg Well... I mean... at least a little bit. Or should I say, a little bit too much.
  2. More RP?

    I should add (because I almost sounded a bit whiney in my former post) that I've enjoyed the events we had so far and I appreciate the effort that went into arranging everything. It's just, like you mentioned, that the move along with a new job means I'm pretty much starting a new life, so by necessity my priorities have shifted quite a bit, and it's hard for me to get invested in RP (well... the game in general) on the level that I would have liked.
  3. More RP?

    I voted "something else". I've kind of lost my interest in gaming as I've got other things to do IRL, and now that the guild seems to have shifted focus to a game I don't even play while accepting that ESO is "stagnated", I kinda feel... just, meh, "uninspired" I guess. If you guys want to keep RP'ing, then definitely do so, I just don't know if I will be around, so I have no right to say either yes or no.

    Both days work for me
  5. Feminism is for all :D

    I was thinking about shooting off on a rant about that as well, actually. But this is why I like RPG's, because they allow for so much character customization. I only ever played one RPG where you couldn't change your gender (Planescape: Torment), but in that game you couldn't customize your character at all. In some games that works, but I can imagine the frustration when this is commonplace rather than the exception.
  6. Feminism is for all :D

    Oh boy... I don't know if I should go off on a rant about that article... Let's just say that I choose to politely disagree with the claim, as I don't think that every single fragment of reality needs to be picked apart as a "gender battle". I mean, imagine if I, as a secularist, started claiming that everyone who plays Paladins and Clerics in computer games do so because they can't reconcile paradoxes in their faith IRL, so they choose to live out their "need to believe" in a computer game that enforces their faith as something positive rather than something to be questioned... You'd instantly see what a ridiculous notion this was, and you'd just accept that I am clearly a dogmatic person who shouldn't be taken too seriously. I find it to be a sign of a very one-eyed mind when you can only see "your own battle" everywhere, but I understand of course that Jill is passionate in this issue, and that this passion is possibly fuelled by frustration over more real injustices she's encountered in real life. But, I have to say, "men play female characters to control them" is as much of a black-and-white bullshit claim as "only white people can be racist". It is said with the best intentions to "challenge the system" and build a better world, but it just ends up being divisive and harmful instead. One step forward, two steps back, basically. But even if someone does play as a female character just to take her clothes off and have her /dance on the spot, so what? Good for him, I hope he has lotion and paper tissues handy so he can make a night of it. Why the hell would it matter what people choose to live out in a virtual world where no one is hurt? I'd rather they do it there than sit in some bush in the park at night, or take a drunk woman home and rape her, because unlike that, guys playing as females - even if it IS in order to "be in control" - is not some kind of social issue that needs to be addressed. ...sorry, that became half a rant anyway! Now to discuss this a little more sensibly: Actually! I may not have any female character created in ESO yet, but I have had several female characters in World of Warcraft and other games. The reasons for creating them have been very varied, once I created a female character just to see if I got treated any differently by male players (which, sadly, I was. Now THAT is an issue worth talking about!) Other times it has been out of convenience for roleplaying purposes - for instance because my main character has a sister who somebody needs to play as part of a storyline I've planned. I've also had female rogues and warriors simply because their animations look much cooler than the male counterpart. When a Blood Elf female goes into stealth in WoW for instance, she actually looks like a badass assassin, unlike the male equivalent who I don't know what the fuck he's doing. Lastly, I've also created female roleplay personas simply to try something a bit different. Clearly as a male, I identify easier with a male persona, but why not try and experience something else? I won't say I did it to "challenge myself", because that's another bullshit claim; that men and women are apparently so different that we can't portray the opposite gender believably in RP. However, I do get to see the world through the eyes of someone I would not have instantly identified with, and I think that can be worthwhile. Then of course, there are games where your character is female by deafult and there's no way to change that. Perhaps some of you have played "Perfect Dark", which was one of my favorite games growing up. A more recent example would be "Transistor" (awesome game by the way. You should all buy it!) I don't know, are THOSE games examples of men controlling women, just because I'm a male playing it? Because I never even pondered the fact that I was playing a woman; I still got immersed with the character, and even invested in her fight. At the end of Transistor I was an emotional wreck, even though In conclusion, I'll admit that I haven't really talked a lot with you guys about why you play female characters, but in WoW, I had plenty of male friends playing/roleplaying as females. Most of them just did it because they had created a persona they were proud of, and right now I can't think of a single one who dressed their character in skimpy clothing or anything like that. So, I think a person's reasons for playing the opposite gender can be very varied. BY THE WAY! I should point out that in WoW, I also played with a lot of women who had created male characters. I never bothered to stop up and think about why they did that. Why should I? Some of them roleplayed as their "dream man", and some just oversexualized their character to have some steamy hot male-on-male ERP, and yet others did it just because. Again, every person has their own reasons, it's not something you can create universal, one-answer-fits-all statements about, I don't think.
  7. RP event: Sargasso

    Aye, thanks for tonight. I'll be busy this Sunday, and probably Saturday next week. I'm a little more unsure on that though.
  8. RP event: Sargasso

    Well we're not RP'ing at the moment anyway, and it wouldn't be the same without an event leader I am fine with whatever, though, it was just an idea that I wanted to throw out there. Rescheduling is probably what I would have done if this was one of my events back in my WoW days, but then again I am lazy and give up easy, so ultimately it's your call
  9. RP event: Sargasso

    D'oh So... not to be "that guy", but since we were on a tight schedule with 20-22 anyway, should we just reschedule for tomorrow or the weekend so we have some more time to RP? If patching will take another 30-40 minutes, we won't have a lot of time to do anything, anyway.
  10. RP event: Sargasso

    It should jump really fast to 90%, but then you'll be stuck for another good half hour I fear But no worries, you couldn't have known the patch would take so long to download! I was surprised by it as well.
  11. RP event: Sargasso

    Aye, I just finished my download, and I've been waiting for 2 hours. :S What percentage are you at?
  12. Hobbyists, show off your passion!

    ...so you should have simply started collecting Skaven instead! Only problem with that of course is that the Skaven are a horde army, so if you got tired of painting zombies, the Skaven might have been the death of you.
  13. RP event: Sargasso

    Awesome, see you then! Looking forward to it
  14. Hobbyists, show off your passion!

    Cheers. But how is it weird? Obviously I'll use my finished army to play games and such, but my main reason for sticking to this hobby is that it's a creative outlet for me. I feel that I've done all the crazy conversions and modifications that I could think of for a Traitor Guard, and if I keep adding more miniatures to the army now I'll just be stuck in a rut of batch-painting the same things over and over again. No thanks, I need some more variation; and while I won't be able to convert a Sisters of Battle army very much (the miniatures are made of metal), I would have to ENTIRELY convert an army of Adeptus Custodes since there are no official miniatures out for them - that sounds like a fun new challenge! ^^
  15. Hobbyists, show off your passion!

    I've been busy painting these past couple of days, so here are a couple of pictures of my most recent projects: #Modified regiment of Imperial Guardsmen. Since I'm building a Traitor Guard, I need my soldier to look a little more... "crazy" #Abandoned turret built from spare parts, with a regular soldier next to it for size comparison. I plan to used it as an Objective Marker and/or Terrain Piece. #Same turret from the front. I've also made the decision to paint the remainder of my army and then count it as complete. After that I want to start up a Loyalist army instead, but I won't rant about the details of that here. For any Warhammer fan reading this though, I want to collect some Sisters of Battle, possibly with an allied detachment of Grey Knights - alternatively modified Adeptus Custodes troops that I will simply deploy with Grey Knight stats when I play games.
