Charlotte, NC needs a gaming jumpstart it seems.

Iím either doing things horribly wrong or Charlotte is simply a place of the gaming void. Iíve tried to join up with some groups in the D&D community that play the Living Forgotten Realms modules, but the problem I find here is that I might as well be doing war gaming. There is some role-play but youíre pretty much an ass if your character has a problem with another personís character and wonít let the module commence. You suffer PCitis horribly and thereby simply allow PCs into the party because they ARE PCsÖ I hate meta-gaming. So I cannot play with that group anymore without going insane.
Other groups are similar or are locating themselves in the ONLY game store in Charlotte that has space or doesnít seem extremely pretentious, the main problem being is that itís in the middle of bum-f*ck nowhere. So I canít really get my fix there.
Finding folks of like-mindedness to play has been irritating. Iíve tried message boards and online gamer groups who end up exchanging outside contact information with me which pretty much leads up to the letdown of no one answering the phone, etc.
Iím at my wits end. Do you folks here in Charlotte not like new blood? Do you absolutely HATE pursuing your own hobbies? I just donít get itÖ.
Well, I canít give up as I would go completely bonkers, so hereís to another shot! *bang*
