This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

DISCLAIMER: brettmb both suggested, and permitted me to post this in two places; as it's somewhat of an odd-duck post.

Who I am: I'm an almost middle aged gamer with over 30 years experience in playing and GM'ing. Born and raised in England, but a lifelong Americanophile, and American citizen.

What I'm looking for: Mature and laidback players with lots of spare time

The pitch: I'm a full-time carer for a disabled wife. While this means I'm technically always on-call, it means I have a lot of downtime where I'm often alone (my wife sleeps a lot because of medication), and I'd like to fill as much of this time as possible with gaming. While my timezone is UTC (+00:00), I'm a night owl. I regularly have large chunks of free time between roughly about 9pm-5am UTC (+00:00), on most days.

What I'm looking for: Retirees, the disabled, trust fund millionaires, and other assorted rejects like myself that are flexible, and have a lot of time on their hands (and are likely to continue to have so), and want friendship and lots of gaming. My target group is probably Gen X'ers and old Millenials, but maturity, sense of humor, and lots of free time are the main prequisites.

I don't mind GM'ing, but I need to play too, so everyone taking turns to GM games would be preferable.

Read this so no-one has their time wasted/ice melted: I grew up during the 80's and 90's. I am irreverent by nature, use no personal pronouns, enjoy blue jokes and double entendres, and I consider every group known to humanity as equally open to poking fun at. If you like words like problematic, or cultural appropriation, this is not the group for you. Like Fonzie, you must be cool.

Oh, and if your idea of RPGing is just playing D&D, you're better off with another group. I don't mind the occasional 3.5 or earlier game, but it is far from my favourite game.

Call Of Cthulhu *
Cartoon Action Hour *
Star Wars (West End Games D6)
Dark Champions *

I'm a middle aged guy with a lot of free time, looking for similar, to form a group for regular gaming. You should be chill, non-woke, and have time on your hands.
