The last session that was recorded was the final script session. The next one will be the week after Mythmoot (this weekend), if memory serves.
OK, thank you.
It's not that I want the audience to think female Dwarves don't exist at all, that would be too weird. Nor to make them think Telchar is male, that would indeed defeat the point of her being female.
I'm just saying that breasts and beardlessness aren't the only
possible way to ever make it possible to tell them apart on screen. There are other viable options, clothing and dialogue, that would work fine. In Farscape when the alien played by a male actor (with no breasts) says "I am the female of the species" I immediately understood that she was female (and non-human). I didn't think it was hard to understand her line. She was easy to tell apart from the males of her species (also played by male actors) by clothing, hair style, and dialogue.
I don't agree, though, that Tolkien was ambiguous about Dwarf appearance. He didn't say that Dwarf women have never ever been met by outsiders, or that they cover themselves in burkas and nobody knows what they look like. He explicitly said they have been seen by outsiders, and they look and sound identical to males in every trait. It's said in both the Silmarillion (Elf-centric) and the LotR (Men/Hobbit-centric).
I would like to nominate a male actor, although I'm not familiar with any actors at all. I will have to hunt around for pics... kind of at random.
