One of the hard things about moving out of San Diego was leaving my established roleplaying gaming circle behind. I planned to travel down some months to run sessions for one group of players (I'm hoping to actually do it at the end of this month!), but I was hoping to find roleplayers up here. For some months, though, I wasn't getting anywhere.

Earlier this month, I heard from a GURPS player who had seen my post on a newsgroup for people looking for games or players; he had moved to Riverside and was hoping to find other GURPS players. We got together earlier this week, and he told me about a gaming site he'd discovered—an office space set up for hosting rpgs and board games, for a modest fee. I went up with him to sit in on a game. When I mentioned that I was interested in running GURPS, one of the other players expressed an interest, so I got his name and e-mail, and this morning I wrote to him about what I had in mind.

At this point it looks as if I have a set of possible times and two definitely interested players, both of whom want to try to recruit more people. I've suggested some ideas for campaigns, with the hope of settling on one and having a first session in March.

I'm going to have to adjust my GMing style a bit, I think, since my campaigns have often been high on roleplaying and low on action, and in any case I'll have to figure out what works for these players. But it looks like I might have a local gaming circle if all goes well.

The first two both seem enthusiastic; one of them has already referred a friend to me as a possible player. So I'm hoping for the best.

RPG Games...
While it is a bit far from where I live in West LA, it is closer than San Diego (and I managed that for just a little while)...
