So far the only games I’ve played are with my close circle of friends. Back when I lived in Linz I used to be a player at our table. But since I and most of my friends (except for the GM) have moved to Vienna we have essentially stopped playing. Only recently have I taken up the mantle of game master and been a host for my friends.
I have not yet had the pleasure of playing with a completely fresh set of players. While it is of course fun to play with my friends, I know by now what to expect when coming to the table. (mostly a lot of messing around and murderhoboing)
If someone could explain to me how to best find my way into a new group and what to expect when I come to my first session, I’d be thankful for that. Should I just, as a complete stranger to the forum and others, say I’ll come to a game and that’s ok? (like it’s an open house) Or should I introduce myself first and then the DM’s decide they want to take their chance with me? … idk
I’m familiar with the Pathfinder, DnD 3.5 and DnD 5e rules. However I’m also open to playing different games, granted you’d take in a complete newb. I’ve a particular interest in playing Call of Cthulhu for once. The roleplaying aspect and the premise that every choice matters as you’re just a mortal (instead of some superhero adventurer) intrigues me.
