So, this might be an odd subject, but I am considering a move in the future, out of the United States. My husband and I both enjoy tabletop (pen and pencil) gaming, and I thought to myself the other day: how likely is it that we will be able to find gaming groups somewhere else? Often, we do end up making our own group out of friends that we run into, but if we move so far away from anyone we know (or anyone who speaks English as a first language) that won’t be necessarily as easy to do.
So I thought that I would make this thread, and ask:
- Do you play pen & paper RPGs? (DnD, Pathfinder, Rifts, etc)
- Where did you join your current group/how did you find them?
- What country do you live in?
- If none of the previous questions really apply…if I moved near where you are, and you knew I was starting a campaign, would you be interested in joining? I mean, not that I would stalk anybody, but how widespread is the interest in non-computer gaming nowadays?
Yes, I do know that online groups exist for this sort of thing, but honestly, there is no replacement for sitting around a table on a Sunday afternoon with like-minded people and just…letting go of reality for a few hours.
(edit) Btw, specifically want to hear from anyone in Germany/Austria, as that is our preferred destination at this point --my husband has ancestors there
