OK, so I've just moved up from Melbourne to Sydney, and eager to get back in to roleplaying after many many years out of the hobby. I thought in such a large city it would be easy, but apparently not...I can't find any groups to play with!
Admittedly I do have two metaphorical hands tied behind my back in that:
- I'm avoiding all the University clubs - being in my mid-30s and at least semi-mature, the idea of gaming with undergrads again fills me with horror
- I'm not interested in D&D in any of its many forms - this is perhaps an irrational prejudice, but years of experience has taught me that D&D is almost always a hack-fest centred around killing monsters and taking their stuff. Not my cup of tea at all...
I've drawn a blank with nearby games shops like Tin Soldier in the city, responded to various GMs trying, but so far failing, to get their game up and running, tried websites like Nearby Gamers and Game Circle - but I'm just not getting anywhere.
So fellow TOGgers, do you know of any Sydney groups, clubs, societies who might be looking for new players? I've been AWOL from the hobby for years, but used to play heaps of Runequest, Cthulhu, Warhammer, Ars Magica, Twilight 2000 and others.
Hope someone can help - my dice are getting rusty.
