After exchanging a few emails with Peter Harkins, who runs NearbyGamers, I created a new page called Ways to Find RPG Players. It collects a range of player-finding tools and resources in one spot, with NearbyGamers front and center.
This is an evergreen topic for gamers in general, and for GMs in particular. Everyone has had to find a new group after they moved, or lost a player or two to work or school and needed to bring new folks into their existing group.
I highlighted NearbyGamers as the featured resource because I think that with enough members (and over 450 have signed up in the past week) this site could become the destination for finding players — and that would benefit the whole gaming community.
If you know of any player-finding resources that I missed, I hope you’ll share them with me in the comments.
