Is there a good non-SR specific website out there to find fellow gamers in my area?

Lessee... There's plothook.net, the Yahoo groups, and burningvoid.com that I can think of offhand.

I can't vouch for the quality of any of those, but (at least) one buddy of mine has used them before.

Azralon: thanks! I'll try those out.

UndeadPoet: I said non-Sr specific. I doubt there's lots of traffic here from non-SR players. :)

Edit: and I already registered there.

Those don't look like setups where people go to meet new gamers, which is what I was primarily looking for.

While I agree that I was missing this passage(was watching some comedy show - bad excuse, I know :D), most people who play RPGs play not only one of them. Just ask here, heh?

I just poked around on Plothook and Burning Void, and I gotta agree that they don't look all that useful. I did find http://www.plothook.net/RPG/forumdisplay.php?f=40 for a "meet players" deal, but it doesn't look too extensive.

Try Googling for "gamer classifieds" or some such? It'd probably be easier to hit a specific game's site to look for people.

Or just be one of those guys who hangs out at a gaming store for 5 hours a day. I'm sure you'll meet all sorts of freaks. I mean folks. Folks.

Yeah, but those would be SR players who also play other games, not non-Sr players. :)

And watching TV is never a bad excuse. It's the American Way.

And that is what keeps me bothered. :grinbig:

Misunderstood your request about non-SR players.

Try googling around for roleplayers in your area, and don't forget to try to bulletin boards at your local gaming store. If nothing turns up, you can always do what I did and just create the resources you were looking for.
