Well, today for me has been all about searching for new players, resources and for the most part getting ready. I must say that many aspects of the DnD world are fairly hidden, more hidden than I would expect in todays world of information but alas here we are and here I am searching away.
You might be wondering why I titled this post 'The Great Delve' the reason for that in its entirety is facebook. I view facebook with the kind of contempt I view a mangey and hungry wolf with...the kind that involves a very large distance. That being said I have come by a scoll of information that suggests that everyone today uses facebook. If everyone uses it, everyone includes Dungeons and Dragons player...so I joined Facebook with a representative account. Of course, this by no means indicates that this was the scope of my journey today.
I have enjoyed chatting with the folk over at Myth-Weavers about different methods of finding players some keen to show me how well a PbP system works. By the by for the resources that Myth-Weavers holds, I would recommend it to any Dungeon Master, especially those online character sheets, they are in fact, a god send.
From Myth-Weavers I wandered into the territory of the UKRolePlayers and alas it is there, with those kind and generous folk that have kindly instructed me to the ways of finding players. I must thank them profusely for their efforts, even to the extent of allowing me to advertise there.
Later this very day, I received communications from a store in Cardiff called Rules of Play who have been quite receptive to the questions that I posed to them as I inquired about finding groups. I was pleasantly surprised by the level of response I received and the thoroughness of their answers. I have even managed to get in touch with a group or two that I hope to converse with more on.
Now however, I must focus on garnering internet presence and beginning to put the word about that a group will be emerging in Rhonnda Cynon Taff and that group will be successful! Alas, technically it's successful now, there's one very keen member! //Laughing//
