When looking to join a group, where do you usually seek a DM?

Online or offline game.
Seeing as how no one but me seems to live in Arizona, finding a group is impossible. Ideas?

You can look on this site, in the Player Registry (link up top in the "tabs" area).

I just did a search based on your city with a 25 mile radius and found 83 results. Try contacting the folks who are GM's and asking if they have room for one more!

Otherwise it's visit the FLGS and see about posting a note on their board too.

Under rocks. ... Oh, that finds rattlesnakes.

Not to belittle your plight.

If you cannot find something via PnP I might suggest local hobby shops if you have such. A notice on the board "player seeking game". Hobby shops are a good place to network.

Checked hobby shops, not much D&D here.

No car, so anyone I meet would have to be reallllllly close.

i sympathize. i live in The Bronx, NY and apparently there's not much going on over here either ( in the Bronx that is ). i have a car and am willing to travel but have had no luck finding a game as of yet. Anyway good luck in your search and if by chance anyone from the NY area reads this please send me a PM.

Until you can find a tabletop game, there is always the option of doing some online gaming. There are several different ways to do it, as well as various sites to play on. Some of the games listed on the Campaign Invitations are online games themselves. Be sure to check them out.

I'd play online, but I'm not sure how to approach a DM about it.

I'm a bit socially awkward.

So am I, or rather under a lot of rocks. Asphalt and gravel shingles you know. :D

It's that easy! awkward or not the worst they can say is "sorry, full up" Just think of the fun you'll have and "endeavor to perservere!!"

I hope you get someone its sad not to game:confused:

Some people say otherwise but I believe even a bad game is better than none, it could always get better.

Bitemytail, I see you're in Tempe. Try posting something in the student union at ASU. Colleges usually have some good gaming groups, especially large colleges like ASU, and the cork boards in the student union usually have all kinds of "looking for" stuff posted up.

you could also try the gamers wanted ads area on WOTC forums.

I've found saga, RCR, and Different flavors of D&D versions players there.

Etc etc

Be diligent, and decide you are not socially awkward, and get with a DM, and say, "Hey, do you have any openings?"

There it is. We are all gamers. There is no secret formula.

Yeah, my roommate's sister's boyfriend is starting a game. So, I should be good now. Thanks
