Hi folks, despite not posting in this thread for well over a half a year, I have continued to gather a steady stream of interest via private messages. With this in mind, I have decided to renew the search to form a local group and have updated the original post.
If you're interested in rolling some dice and having fun - and happen to be one of the 0.01% of D&D Beyond users who lives in the county of Kent, in England - please either post here or send me a private message. Thanks!
Hello! To update this thread, we actually formed a permanent group (5 players + me, the DM of great villainy), and we're now several sessions into an on-going campaign! It's been a great success.
That group is unfortunately full, I feel that adding more characters will dilute the experience for my existing victims players.
HOWEVER, between this thread and a bunch of PMs I must have heard from around another 6-9 people. There's strong potential to form another face-to-face group here if we can align schedules and locations - D&D runs strong in Kent. I'm not sure if I'm up for DMing two campaigns at once, but I haven't entirely ruled it out if there aren't any other DMs around.
What I suggest is, if you're in Kent and currently interested in forming another group, to either post here or send me a private message reaffirming it and we can get the ball (and dice) rolling. Location-wise, ideally you'd need to be able to travel to the Ashford-Folkestone-Dover area.
I'm looking to start a new group, I've been a DM for about 2 years roughly and was hoping to put a new group together/meet like minded people. Current group has petered out and don't play much anymore. I can host an offline group and would like to keep doing so :)
