Who is this chick?
I’m Numtini, a long time gamer. My real name is Kathy and I live with my partner on Cape Cod with five year old daughter and three cats.
Outside of gaming, my two passions are cooking and writing. I’m a published author of lesbian romance and read extensively, mostly on a kindle these days, and enjoy movies of all sorts. In addition to our three kitties, we also have a planted 30 gallon community fishtank. I have a sad and unfortunate addiction to competitive reality TV, particularly the Top Chef and Project Runway franchises. I’m semi-active in feminist and GLBT politics as well.
I guess I owe my presence in gaming and geekery to a junior high school teacher being sick some 30 years ago resulting in me being stuck in a very boring triple study hall. After an hour of staring at a wall, desperate for something… anything to do… I borrowed a book from someone. That book was The Fellowship of the Ring and I was hooked within ten pages. Fantasy, Science Fiction, D&D, the internet, and eventually MMORPGs followed.
I guess I have played pretty much every MMORPG that exists and even a few that never were released. Let’s just say I have a lot of time. Cape Cod is one of the most beautiful places in the world, but it isn’t really exciting particularly in the winter. Eve Online has been a hard sell for me, it’s only really been in the last year where I got enough connection to do more than dabble a month and move on. Eve is all about the social equation and I honestly have found it difficult as a woman to fit in.
Why is she writing this stuff?
The blog started the year before our daughter was born when I was playing Eve and I wanted a separate outlet so I didn’t bore my friends to death with gaming talk. The blog went on hiatus after our daughter was born because I, more or less, got out of playing MMOs because I just didn’t have the time. Recently, I’ve rekindled my love of tabletop RPGs and decided to spark this up.
