    Sarah Kerrigan (in Starcraft 1), she was my firs “video love” 😛
    I fallen for her red braids, night googles and warm voice…also her story was compelling and was magistrally continued in Broodwar and Sc2.

    Regarding D20 girls I love them 🙂 Geek girls for geek boys, so they say…brain and unique look are what they propose. And they rock.

    I’d have to say my favorite female character is Flonne from the Disgaea game series. Not only is she a ditzy angel who was half demon at one point, but was able to fund her own project to build a giant robot mech version of herself. With her ever disappearing blu ray collection and constant cameos to bring love, heart, and friendship to the scene, she also acts as the straight character to Laharl and Etna’s personality quirks. She always brings a lighthearted humorous air to the story once she pops in, and is a helpful healer for the early parts of the game.

    Sarah Kerrigan Star Craft (I & II). She had a troubled childhood; her powers led to the death of her parents and eventual “enslavement” to the Confederacy. Once freed of her implant she then dedicates herself to destroying the Confederacy. We see glimpses of her conflicted humanity with the activation of psi emitters throughout the campaign, but she is captured and infected before she is pushed to the point of betraying the rebels due to her morals. Once infected she then becomes an unstoppable force out to destroy the universe; eventaully she becomes the undisputed ruler of the Zerg and the most terrifying thing in the universe. Oddly enough she is partially returned to human and forced to lead the Zerg with continued ruthlessness, but a human conscience. A unique story I enjoyed over the years.

    D20 helps people realize that girls are gamers too. It breaks the stereotype that we are pudgy, pimple covered, virgins living in their parents basement. It is also a relief that we don’t have to always listen to these models/wannabe actresses who are just being paid to pretend they like videogames. I don’t care what you look like, as long as you are true to what you love. That is what D20 says to me.

    Veronica Renata Santangelo from Fallout: New Vegas because she’s voiced by one of my favorite geek actresses, Felicia Day! It’s hard to not like her characters, but you do have to be careful who you tangle with, because otherwise Veronica won’t join your party.

    I haven’t gotten the chance to go to a con where there were D20 girls, but I love the idea of gamer girls representing the gaming industry. Actually, I love t so much I’ve thought about trying to join the D20 girls…

    Don’t know if being a part of the site excludes me but either way I like these discussions for fun.

    Fav Fem char? Easily, Opera from Star Ocean: The Second Story. She is simply the most bad ass fem heroin I have had the chance to play as.

    Fav thing about D20 girls? Being able to have a convo about games with a female who doesn’t automatically shut down and enter zombie mode. Instead they tend to reply and/or talk trash, which is awesome.

    I don’t do a LOT of video games like Portal or Bioshock, Mass Effect or Call of Duty. Mostly I love Harvest Moon and games like that, RPGs, so that when I can’t get my gaming group together, I can still RP.

    That’s why I LOVE World of Warcraft. I’d have to say my favorite NPC is Sylvannas Windrunner. She has done so many things in the game, not letting death stand in her way to being what she should be, a leader, and a tactical genius. While I have yet to play the other Warcraft games, her biography is amazing, and I can’t wait to play those so that I may learn more about her.

    As for the D20 girls, I love them. I think it’s awesome that there is a group of girls who aren’t afraid of showing their true colors. Growing up, most of my friends were boys, though it was my best friend Amanda who got me into RPGs and D&D. For the longest time (and if you listen to some of the crap said in Trade Chat) I thought I must be some of the few girls who enjoyed gaming. None of my other girl friends enjoy D&D or WoW or DDO or most recently SWTOR like I do. Finding the D20 girls was like coming home.

    Oh, and I can’t figure out how (unless by commenting it does it for me) how to join your site.

    I’d have to say that my favorite female video game character is Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII. She’s just so cool and ambitious and won’t let anything get in the way of her trying to save her little sister.

    I like the D20 girls because it shows the world that there is gamer girls out there and that video games are not just meant for guys. And the cosplay is really cool too. It’s like symbolizing that anyone can be a D20 Girl.

    I guess I would have to say my favorite female character that springs to mind would have to be Sarah Kerrigan from Starcraft. She was a proud and capable warrior on the battlefield, even exceeding most of the male figures via training and courage without having to have her anatomy hanging out! Couple that with the fact she embraced what happened to her and was able to direct her energies to unify an entire species under her matriarchal will and she is definitely a woman to respect.

    What do I like about the D20 Girls project? That’s an easy one; Like my own wife they breathe life into the notion that women can play games without bowing to cultural dogma or masculine whims. They step up and show a positive example of female persona’s that can enjoy a hobby while simultaneously establishing it can be done showcasing their intelligence, strength and originality. Their great role models for women in general and openly add to what too many perceive is a male only hobby.

    I think my favorite female video game character would be, and I know it’s stereotypical of me, Aerith from FFVII. My reasoning is not that she was an amazing character, or that she had cool special abilities, but simply that when she died it actually affected me as a player. It drew me into the story enough that I genuinely cared that a bunch of pixels on my screen just went away.

    For the second question, this would probably be an incredibly long and drawn out discussion that wouldn’t have much, if any, value over the internet. So I will go with my second reason and say that the D20 girls are awesome because they are offering a different view of the gaming world than is standard for our social groups.

    I think my favourite female character would have to be GLaDOS. I love the snarky, witty characters, and she’s just fun. I’m kind of crap at puzzle games, but with Portal/Portal 2 I don’t mind my suckitude so much, because of GLaDOS and her snark.

    I love that the D20 Girls are out there, showing that gaming is for everyone, regardless of gender. That geeky and nerdy is awesome and fun; and doesn’t mean that you can’t be cute/sexy and strong and badass as well.

    My favorite female video game character will always be Samus Aran because not only is she a bad-ass bounty hunter but she paved the way for all other action video game female protagonists.

    Easy the D20 girls are the coolest because they are not afraid to break the male video game stereo type & they do it with style. CHAA!!

    My favorite female video game character is Chell from Portal. Because, she’s the strong silent type who never gives up. And I hope to one day be like that.

    I love the D20 girls, one because they are so good looking and two because it goes to show that cute and nerdy can co-exist. Tehe could always use more girls like me in the world :p but no in all seriousness, it’s not just geeky or nerdy girls who are cute but strong as well. Weather it be will or just strong hearted. D20 Girls, your and inspiration <3

    My favorite female video game character would most likely be Samas Aran as she was one of the progenitors of strong female PCs that weren’t just there to look pretty.

    And I love the D20 Girls for disproving the myths about gamer girls. KEEP IT UP!

    GLaDOS!

    She’s not playable, but I absolutely love her in the Portal series. She has so much more personality then a lot of playable females in other games.

    As a D20 girl, I enjoy being able to be in an environment where you can be yourself, play games and not worry about and judgment or rude taunting from men.

    We’re women and we’re proud to be the geeky, sexy nerds that we are.

    I think my favorite Female character would have to be Miranda Lawson from Mass Effect 2. I liked how she rose above what could have been a miserable existence not having a father that appreciates you to being a powerful biotic and a great operative.

    My favorite female video game character would probably have to be Elizabeth from Bioshock 2 mainly because the Bioshock games are some of my favorite games of all time.

    I love the D20 girls, as a somewhat model I love the fact that they help prove the nerdy and geeky is sexy which is my main goal in life. So HERE HERE FOR THE NERDY BABES OF THE D20 GIRLS

    Samus Aran (Metroid)…after Ms PacMan…she was the female that started it all for rest of the female characters!
