players behind the characters

Post by lankyz0r »

i was just wondering, who actually plays WoW? who are the people behind the characters?
myself, i am a 21 year old working part time in a pizza hut call centre. i usually play for at least 4-5 hours a day.

how about you? how old are you? what do you do for a living?

The Women of WoW!

No, I didn't mean that the way it may have come out. ;)

Kudos to you for being able to play with youngsters in the house. I get too distracted by my cats most of the time.

I just like finding other women that play, because everyone always assumes I'm a guy, just because I'm playing WoW. I usually refer to people by the gender of their toon, even though I know that's probably not the case 1/2 the time.

Anyway, I'm 24. I'm a proud woman of WoW (I kind of like that). I live in Wichita, KS. I'm a software tester for financial audit sofware. My real passion is for the theatre, but I've got to make (and save) some money before I can get back into that.

32 happily married, brand new baby girl. Software developer by day, web slinger and gamer by night (time permitting lately). Live in Austin, Texas where it's quite cold today (22 degrees F! Brrr, that's really cold for here!).

I've been a gamer all my life. EQ, SWG, DaoC, and now WoW. I do quite enjoy WoW but don't have much time to play lately.

I'm 23 years old and a recent college graduate. I'm in a relationship, but you wouldn't know it looking at my /played. I'm a guy, not a blonde with a ponytail like Ceto. ;)

Officially, I'm "Web Coordinator" at a company here in New Hampshire. A large portion of my job is internal tech support and database/programming work. My One True Love is web programming and database. I hope to do that full-time some day in the future.

Edit: What's my age again?

Me too! I hope to do that full time for myself some day in the future, but that seems to be way too far off for me right now.

I wish I looked half as good as my toon. If I were any good at taking creative screenshots, then I'd post one, but she looks good! lol

Another WoW Woman here!

I'm a 41 year old female with a master's degree and not enough time in the day for everything! I've worked in the Credit Union movement for over 20 years now, and I still love what I do. I'm happily married to my soul mate (who is also a gamer). In fact, we met in a D&D game :) We live in lovely (freezing) Oregon with our three little ones.
