    Hey Chris. Welcome. I have a wife and two kids myself. We have a little gaming community building at NerdSoCal.com and we tend to get together in various iterations throughout the year, especially at the Strategicon conventions near LAX. Feel free to hop on over to nerdsocal.com and see if it can be a resource for you. We play many different games (RPGs, Board Games). However, there's a large presence of small press or "indie" games, rather than big traditional games like D&D, Gurps, etc.

What are you looking for?:
My wife and I are generally looking for an easy-going group with a generally serious and mature approach to the game and gameworld, but that also has a good sense of humor and doesn't take itself *too* seriously. Variety is the spice of life, and we're open to any style as a matter of variety, though I myself prefer low-to-medium-power games with a fair bit of tactics and detail, while she prefers streamlined, fast-paced systems and quite likes Runebound (the boardgame) right now.

Expect us to be a bit shy at first -- *sigh* -- that's just the way we are, but we have a good time when we get to know people.

As a side note and expansion of "Favorite RPGs" above, there are a few more I've read a bit of and would love to try some time:

Earthdawn
Paranoia (2nd Ed.)
Unknown Armies
Blue Planet
HERO System (Fantasy or Post-Apocalytic both sound interesting)
Harn / HarnMaster
Warhammer FRP
Talislanta / Atlantis: The Second Age
Fading Suns
About Me
Biography:
I'm a mid-30s fellow of serious and philosophical bent looking for mature fellow gamers and friends with whom to get back into the hobby. I have not played in years and am looking to enjoy a good game and good conversation. My wife is also interested, though she has never played. (But she does know better than to utter, "I cast magic missile!" in an empty room.)

We're pretty flexible as to which game, though I prefer more "realistic" (yes, I know) and less rigid systems than D&D and its variants (for example, I'm one of those few who actually prefer Gamma World's 3rd Edition, with its MSH action tables...). If it comes down to D&D, I'd prefer the older variants over 3e/3.5e/d20 gamesets.

We have two small boys (3 and 6), so when we meet up we'll either be giving them time with the grandparents or letting them play with your kids, if that's the case.
