It's too bad people have to deal with unhealthy gaming environments. My first big gaming group I met in college playing D&D and we were very accepting of women, we had three in the group, two straight one gay. I'm still very good friends with them 15 years later.
It’s also too bad that people have to say that they’re accepting of women into their groups, like women are automatically excluded. :/ It always sucks to realize that we’re still working towards that kind of thinking, the kind where you don’t have to think “well i guess we can let the girls in.” lol.
Was your D&D group fun? Do you do anything like that now?
It’s good to know that you stayed friends with them (and hopefully the rest of them as well)!
Initially it was actually a college club and it was a lot of fun, it was cool too since 3rd edition came out the year I started college and one of the older guys in the gaming club taught us freshmen how to play. We also played some world of darkness games like Vampire the Masquerade and Changeling the Dreaming.
The group also made me the magic player I am today, I had been playing Magic since Fallen Empires, but I never had many people to play with and my deck building skills as well as my playing skills were horrible. About half the gaming club played Magic and a handful were really good.
The girls in the group never felt out of place as far as I know, except maybe times when they’d complain about how our farts smelled really bad and they longed for a more girl heavy group.
After college we all went our separate ways, the group had grown to over 20 very closely knit gamers. There’s still around 8 of them who still live in the town we went to college in and they game every Monday like clockwork. For the rest of us that moved away, we organize events like Magic Drafts or have role-playing campaigns that will meet once every month or two.
They’re my bestest friends! Hope more people can have gaming experiences like mine, because it was the best time of my life.
