What Happens When Your Gaming Group Explodes?

Have you survived a gaming group implosion and now are cast adrift in the abyss of non-gaming? Although a rare occurrence in the gaming community it can and does happen when certain forces come into alignment… As a player I had been gaming with the same D&D group for a little over a year now, playing every Thursday evening.
