Although I'm sure it still lists me as being a part of the Augusta, Georgia gaming scene, I need to get that modified to reflect my new location. I am now in Atlanta, Georgia. Please read on!

Greetings to those of you who take the time to read this as it may apply to you!

We are a group of gamers who have been together now for just over two years. We do not advertise a specific system, because we are eclectic in our tastes - right now, we are in a much more narrative state of gaming than we ever have been before, and there is a lot of player agency - but that's just an example. We are currently playing Fantasy Age, but we have recently played a lot of Dungeon World, Night's Black Agents, a variety of Savage Worlds games, etc. Although many of us cut our teeth on D&D, we are not currently playing it - but at the same time, I'd like to say that we're not averse to it, either.

As for our group, we're made up of a 20-something, a couple of late-30-somethings, and two 40-somethings. Age and experience doesn't matter to us, though, as we are far more interested in enthusiasm and a willingness to participate in a great story first and foremost. We are all professionals in our own right, and many of us have spouses and children. Gaming is important to us, though, and we do not game as mere gamers - we are friends. We would like to find other like-minded individuals to add to the group. Right now, we are one GM (and occasionally this rotates if an arc of a major story has been told and then its put on pause to give someone else the proverbial captain's chair for a moment) and four players.

Now, here's where I have advertised this in so many other places but I get strange replies about the when and where we play:

We are all located in the northern/northeastern portion of the city. We play in Flowery Branch (85 North or 985 depending upon how you might get to us if you're not already in the area) at a very particular store; its name is Meeple Madness. We would play at someone's house in order to focus a bit more (as gaming stores can sometimes get a little loud), but this is a great place and it happens to be a nexus point for us all. At the same time, we can only play on Wednesdays from 7 PM until 10 PM. The stars have aligned in order to give us this time, and although we have been asked to change our time and/or location because we sound like the perfect group for someone, we cannot. We are locked into that day and time (and largely the location as well).

We have some who are "ITP" and "OTP" who have been willing to make the drive simply because we're a welcoming group of gamers who take our fun seriously - but not so seriously that we lose sight of the fact that it's a game. We just want to tell a good story and hang out with our friends. We are completely cognizant of the fact that our time and location could prove difficult for some who might be interested as anyone who knows anything about Atlanta's traffic... well, it's not good. I can say, though, that we do have one player in our game who comes from Cobb County, and if you know anything about where that is in relation to where we are, well... maybe that shows a little bit about devotion and how well we work together!

I sincerely hope that this reaches someone(s) who might be interested in meeting up. We are very serious about meeting other like-minded gamers who are seeking a great 'home' with friendly people.
