Finding Players For Your Role Playing Group

You have the rules in hand, the narrative ready to go, now all you need are the players...

As a game master ready to run that first game, where can we find some players for our role playing game, and what should that first adventure be like?

If you are already a member of a role playing group, pulling in players might be as simple as extending an invite- the same with any family or friends who you think might be interested in the game.

As you build up a list of invites, consider some of the other hobby interests that you might have- your literal gaming network where an invite can be extended.

The board gaming group?

Other hobby groups?

The invite should be for a first introduction-only game.

What about any gaming or hobby stores in your area- reaching out to the general manager to connect with players- especially if you are planning to run your games at the store.

An adventure or scenario that is not part of a larger or more permanent weekly game- a chance for everybody to try out the game, and see if they would like to continue.

Use that first game to both introduce the system, and show potential players the types of adventures they can plan on experiencing.

See you in the game!
