A couple of my group members have fallen victim to real-life. I am happy for them but it leaves a hole in the group that needs filling. We have a really good pathfinder group going (and I would like to keep it that way). We are looking for one person (possibly Two, depending on things) to join are ranks.
Ok, so here is the quick of it:
The average age of the members in my group is 35. All of you know that it is very tough to keep a consistent group together; it is even more so when you reach our old age, many in my current group are married, have kids, or careers that limit our free time; all of that being said, I have managed to run a consistent weekly Sunday group since I moved here almost 10 years ago. I like to run a larger group as it gives leeway on character classes and session cancelation. The potential member that we are looking for needs to be able to commit to an average of 3 out of 4 sessions (we understand that things come up and that sometimes people will miss a few sessions in a row; that is ok, truthfully we just want someone who can make more than they miss). We Currently have 5 members, but 1 member is on part time status.
Now the part that does not endear some folks:
We would prefer that the potential candidate be over the age of 24, personally age is not a deal-breaker for me; however in the past; the last few people under that age did not work out basically due to immaturity. (so, anyone under 24 if you are mature please feel free to get a hold of me). Next, we will not be accepting any Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband combo teams. I have played and DM’ed for almost 30 years and have only seen that work out once. Ideally the second spot possible spot will be reserved for a friend/brother/sister/cousin of the person who works out for our opening. (My group is race and gender friendly, in fact this is one of the first times I can remember in a long time that we do not have a female member). Oh.. and newbies are not a deal-breaker, if you are willing to show up, put forth effort, and learn; I am willing to teach.
Lastly the meat and potatoes:
We really do have a great group and have a lot of fun. We play almost every Sunday from 3pm to 10pm (sometimes a little later). The average level in the group right now is 8; you will come in at level 8. The game is probably closer to a 50/50 combat/role-play mix, but I will advertise it at a 55/45 combat/role-play mix.
I would possibly be interested, if the slot is still open, in about a month (I'm in the process of moving apartments right now).
I'm 27, live in U City, have DM'd since 3.0, and played various RPGs (2e briefly, Werewolf, Marvel Superheroes, ShadowRun, etc., but my heart is with 3.x/Pathfinder).
