New Player In Isolation, Looking for Group


Advice


Hello all, I'm new to the Pathfinder roleplaying game, but I've played a few tabletop games in the past. I have some free time in my schedule, and really wish I could sit down and play this game, but I live in Nowhere, Texas, and there's not so much as a video store within 30 miles of my house, let alone a game or comic shop that might host tabletop sessions. I'm also new to this area, so I don't exactly have any friends to play with. (Not that I had a lot of friends before I moved, but I digress) I'm wondering if there are any places online that I can go to hook up with a game master and participate in sessions via a program like Roll20? I only recently got my hands on the Core Rulebook, and I'm eager to discuss character creation for my very own Pathfinder character, but I'm too isolated. Does anyone have any leads?

If you are personally looking to add to your group, then I have two character concepts I'm sitting on: A wizard/rogue male human who used to be a butler for a famous arch wizard, and a female human warrior who is a disgraced pirate captain. If either of these characters sound appealing to your particular setting, send me a message. Like I said, I only recently got my hands on the Core Rulebook, so there will be many things I need to discuss with a potential gamemaster before I present any character sheets.

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer.


Roll20 is a fantastic program for online games. I will be running a roll20 game in about 4 months if you're interested in joining just pm me. Or you can go to the game recruitment forum to find some games. There are a lot of Texans on here I'm sure you can find some people near you for in person sessions

Possibly you can get in touch with one of the Paizo venture officers for the Texas area who may be able to direct you to a nearby group, convention or play via computer alternative. The officers are listed in a separate section of the Paizo boards. Sorry that I can't be of further assistance as I live in New York City.


Do you like the idea of a Play by Post? I'm currently running two, and it's great fun. A lot slower than face-to-face gaming, obviously. I'd invite you to join my games, but we're full up on players at the moment.

However, here's a whole board of GMs looking for people to play with:

Basically, you make a character(following the rules that the GM lay out), write a story, and hope to get accepted into a game.

Here's an example of such a game, having run for about 2 months:

Welcome to Pathfinder and the Society. Here's a link to a recent thread similar to yours that had lots of other links and useful info:

Where-do-I-find-online-PFS-games

There's plenty of online play available, as long as your schedule allows for some flexibility.


Okay, I think I have a much better grasp on the situation. Thank you all so much for your suggestions! I've already put myself out there on the online game thread on this site, soooooo... call me maybe?

I'd strongly suggest that you not wait for the call. Spots fill up quickly and you have to speak up for them.
