Me too, you guys are now my extended family, I have tried other sites but here on the weave people are so much more friendlier.

Aye agreed with Vox and red.

At least you had roleplayers.

You guys are spoiled.

The town that I grew up in lost its township when the post office / feed store burned. My nearest neighbor was more than a mile away, and the nearest one with kids was around three miles away. Also, I had no internet until I went to college. There is still no internet there, and no cell service within half a mile.

I still managed to put together a game there.

I used to live in small town U.S.A. on the eastern seaboard. I played a grand total of four D&D sessions before the only two players in town moved away. It took a few years before I got another group together, and even that would only meet once every few months at best.

Now I'm in New York, and know so many groups I could never play with them all. Which is it's own sort of problem. But I much prefer it to my high school days.

I am thinking of starting a Pathfinder Society chapter in my area. Maybe I can get some people in my area into the hobby.

Didn't ready the WHOLE thread, lazy of me I know, but my only suggestion is opening talking about it. I know it sounds weird, but hear me out. As a gamer, one that is less 'geeky' then a few, to get into my RL gaming group I had to mention my interest of playing in an Ancient Society in table top form to a History buff; whom by chance had a group who wanted to get back together. Not saying it hasn't caused some weird moments, and undue stress/stain, I do enjoy it a bit.

Also I know most of my 'Local' comic book stores host a few different 'RP' groups bi-weekly; though I fear the people I meet their... One perk of online you can't judge people by their cover. Which I tend to do consciously to those whom are 'overly' kind or talkative. Humanity flaw I guess.. and to think my nick name is that of a man whom says not to judge others.

I did have to convert them first. I was the first roleplayer in town.
