    I've been trying to start an RPG for the past couple months, but no one has been interested! How am I going to have any fun with only the one person who joined? How am I to seek out the rare Star Wars junkies and recruit them to my game?

    If you join your local Fanforce Chapter, you will almost no doubt find someone willing to play the RPG.

    Hey don't knock solo campaigns. Two of my longest running games have started as solos, only to be expanded upon several sessions in. Not having backup should teach a gamer to be extra careful (or bastardly) for most things.

    I have never had that problem. The group I GMed last semester got split into two because there were so many people, and then one of those just got split into two as well. Of course, I live in the dorms, so there are a lot of potentials around anyway.

    I think it's a good problem to have. :D

    That is a problem we don't seem to have in our group. Several founding members go to the same high school and as our numbers wear thin someone else always joins, in fact there have been several instances over the years where there has actually been a waiting list to get in.

    Perhaps its due to your poor charisma...
