Experienced GM looking for players--or experienced player looking for a game! -- Salem, OR

edited December 2014 in Player Lounge
I’m a Salem GM who’s transitioning from a slowly-dying online game to find some RL players in the area. My main focus is Fate Core--I’ve been playing almost exclusively Fate-based games for five or six years, and I’ve actually designed a Fate Core supplement (search Strange Voyages on Kickstarter)--and I’m looking to play and playtest a military/spy fiction/time travel game.

That said, I’ve played plenty of other games and would be willing to run some other stuff. No D&D or other Tolkienian fantasy, please, I’m completely sick of it. I’m very familiar with d20 Modern and Paranoia (2nd & XP editions and just Kickstarted the new edition). I’ve also read but haven’t actively played several Cortex Plus games, notably Leverage, Firefly, and Marvel Heroic, as well as Shadowrun. I’m interested in exploring some stranger games that stretch genres or format: Nobilis, Don’t Rest Your Head, Fiasco, Unknown Armies, Becoming, etc.

I’ve mostly GMed for a long time, and also would be interested in taking some time on the other side of the table!

    Welcome to the portal Gremlin 1384! I suggest you try "Looking For Players":http://forums.obsidianportal.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=1527&page=1 . This has links to a number of suggestions, including pen and paper games. I have found players for my game at pen and paper myself. Many people have had good luck using Meetup as well.
