Hey, I've just joined this site for the singular purpose of finding a SR group that'd be willing to teach me how to play. I might be able to convince some of my buddies to join up too, if you're interested in getting a group together. I live on the gulf coast, btw, but commuting for gaming shouldn't be too much of a problem.
If anyone sees this message, as of September 2016 I am still looking for a good, local group that wants to game. Message me if interested
