Wondering about lady gamers

I was interested to see if there was a site devoted to female RPG fans like myself, and I'm afraid I'm missing something, because there isn't a lot out there.  There was one horribly managed site that was too bright pink and impossible to navigate.  There were promises of other sites who's domains don't exist anymore.   

Where are my ladies in fictional arms?

I'm worried that my assumptions are true: even on the internet, tabletop RPG female players are  under represented.  Hmmm.

When I did my story telling explanation post I realized that because character and story are so important to tabletop RPGs, that more women should be into them.  But I don't think that's true.  I know I'm not the only woman out there who loves rolling dice.  But I think more nerd girls are into fantasy books/anime/video games, not tabletop RPGs.

This must be remedied.  I will find a way!

  1. The was a booth at the ORIGINS trade show, Girl Gamers, or maybe GamerGirls. I'll see if I can look up some information on this group.
