A local group to play with would be great, but as much as I’m looking for a group I’m also just looking for gamers in the area. I moved to this locale just before COVID hit, and so didn’t get to really have much opportunity to investigate the local (or semi-local) RPG community. Now that the world is climbing out of lockdown I’m looking to find my peoples.
Most (Superheroes, Pulp Adventures, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Cosmic Horror, Espionage… Really, the only genres I tend to shy away from are are few of the squickier horror variants).
AGE, PbtA, BRP, (old) D&D, Vortex, Fate, Hero System, Icons, 2D20, Traveller/Cepheus, Ubiquity, WEGd6, Gumshoe, and many others.
While I appreciate a group that can take its gaming seriously, I prefer when that seriousness is applied to their commitment to the game rather than the at the table behaviors. (In other words, if you say you’re going to be at a session be there, or let the group know ASAP that your plans have changed don’t leave us hanging). Within game, I can see things mostly serious, but not “grim/dark serious”. Every once in a while, you just have to acknowledge the inherent silliness of what your characters are doing.
Peculiar. Generally available on Sundays, about half of my Saturdays, and Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. This occasionally gets superseded by the needs of my job, but I usually have a fair amount of advance notice when that’s going to happen.
