Ok, how many out there who are in to face-to-face paper and pencil role playing games (D&D, RuneQuest, GURPS, etc.) live in the Southern California area? (In particular, the greater Los Angeles area - including Orange County).

I've been pretty starved for games for some time (I run games, but haven't found enough local gamers ready to RUN games that I can run a character in). So, who is out there within a reasonable distance of West Los Angeles who is running a campaign of some sort?

Well, you know about mine, though by my standards San Diego is a slightly unreasonable distance from where you are. I run more GURPS than anything else, but I also run Big Eyes Small Mouth and FUDGE at times, and I've tried any number of other systems since I gave up on homebrews.

Believe me, I sympathize with the difficulty of the GM in becoming a player. Not that I don't love GMing. But my once a month session in [livejournal.com profile] koressa's Call of Cthulhu campaign, Road to R'lyeh (named for the old Bing Crosby/Bob Hope movies), means a lot to me.

Currently, though, in addition to [livejournal.com profile] koressa, [livejournal.com profile] caprine is running a campaign, and I think [livejournal.com profile] ebenbrooks either is running one or plans to start one soon. So we actually have a fairly decent supply of GM just now. Though both the campaigns I know about, and one of my upcoming ones, are horror and in fact are inspired by H. P. Lovecraft, in three rather different ways. Apparently that suits a lot of our tastes. There's also a circle that one of my players is in, where they rotate GMing, but I think they mostly do Champions, which is not one of my preferred systems; and they play every week, starting after dinner and going into the wee small hours, which I just could not deal with.
