    There's a reason you're having trouble finding a game. Most of us, those that like RP and actually like realism and believability vs. dice rolls and quick plug-in skills are mostly playing earlier versions of the game.
    I have a 30+ year campaign using 2nd Edition 15 miles away from you (South Austin). I know exactly what you mean and that's exactly how we run our game. Enjoy the search, and should you decide you can't find it in a 4th edition you might try something in an earlier version.

What are you looking for?:
I have attended several groups in my area, but have not continued with any of them. It seems that most are just interested in getting to the next battle. Any "role-playing" bits of the story are reduced to "I use Diplomacy to get the information" [roll dice], or "Yay, we're in town! Let's find a whorehouse! Haw haw haw!" That's a fine way to play - and can be fun on occasion - but it's not how I want to play an entire extended campaign.

I like role-playing games to be a group storytelling experience, not just a miniatures wargame with a loose story tying it together. Rich characters with deep backgounds exploring a dynamic world - that sort of stuff.

I remember playing back in high school and college with a DM who would have you play out the scene to get the information, sometimes having you roll with a bonus - or penalty - based on how well you had done. Often, experience points were granted for excellent roleplaying, or creative solutions to a problem (especially if the DM hadn't anticipated the solution and was amused by it).
About Me
Biography:
I work in the video game industry. You'd think I'd have no trouble finding a decent D&D group to play with, but you'd be wrong.

I'm just looking for a 4E Forgotten Realms D&D group in my area that plays by the standard rules and uses some actual role-playing in the game.
