Find Players

Searching in your local game store or on message boards to find other local gamers can be pretty frustrating.  Roleplayers & Tabletop Wargamers have challenges finding other gamers who live near them.  Everyone hopes to find people interested in the games they like.  When you do find other gamers then you're crossing your fingers hoping they'll have similar opinions on genres & play-style.  Find Gamers is doing it's best to help you find other people that match your interests not only in Roleplaying but also Miniature & Historical Wargaming.

Gamer Profile

After registering and building a Gamer Profile, you'll be able to search for local gamers in your area or those interesting in playing online.  Other people can see your favorite games & interests then contact you about tabletop gaming opportunities.

Online Gamers

If you live in a sparsely populated area and can only game online, then you can add `Game Online` to your Gamer Profile.  Find Gamers show your Gamer Profile in the Local Gamers search (Within Australia, Canada, Great Britain & USA) but also list you in Online Gamers listings.

Find Conventions

Another feature is our member driven Convention & Event list.  Any registered user can create events.  They can be Conventions, Online Events or the more popular Local Only Events.  Local Only Events are often used for:  a local organization's game day, a hobby store's tournament or class on painting miniatures. Our gamers are looking for Roleplaying or Wargaming conventions, be sure to add yours.

Temporary Canadian Postal Code Weirdness

Hello Canadian gamers... and everyone else!

UPDATE:  This problem has been resolved. 

I noticed a problem with some new postal code lookups from our free Geolocation vendor LocationIQ.  The good news is that they will have it fixed in about a week.  The bad news is that it won't be fixed for at least a week.

If there is a new Canadian postal code not in our database, Find Gamers sends a query for the missing data.

For example, we queried for J0N 1G0 but the response dropped 1G0 and only sent us the data for the entire J0N region instead of the exact postal code geolocation data.  As you can assume, this is a bit of a problem.  

This is the type of data we get from LocationIQ:

[{"place_id":"77060","licence":"https:\/\/locationiq.com\/attribution","boundingbox":["45.5135","45.5135","-74.0534","-74.0534"],"lat":"45.5135","lon":"-74.0534","display_name":"R\u00e9gion d'Oka (Oka), Quebec, J0N, Canada","class":"place","type":"postcode","importance":0.1,"address":{"suburb":"R\u00e9gion d'Oka (Oka)","state":"Quebec","postcode":"J0N","country":"Canada","country_code":"ca","state_code":"qc","town":"R\u00e9gion d'Oka (Oka)","city":"R\u00e9gion d'Oka (Oka)"}}]

Until this is fixed in the next week, we might continue to receive some wrong data.  But when it's fixed, LocationIQ has promised to notify me.  I will then delete the bad data and manually fix the bad postal code data.  

That's it folks, so no worries.  I will update this news article when it's done.

NPC Backgrounds with Feeling

Hello gamers.  

Today we released a new DM/GM generator for fantasy gamers called NPC Backgrounds with Feeling.  Not everyone is comfortable creating NPC backgrounds off the top of their head.  This web tool is intended to give you a great start in fleshing out real characters who feel more like living, breathing members of your game world.  

Our focus is on giving NPCs their own personality traits that can make them feel like separate individuals.  They can have different backgrounds or occasionally maybe even the same.  Some people do frequently have the same or similar life experiences, like surviving a raid on your village.

There are a variety of options to modify the types of NPCs generated.  Job types, name types, size of their Home Location or even special Groups like Traders or all females.  You can even have their livelihood or name generated as a underline blank to be filled in later.

Each feature about the NPCs is randomized.  But you can increase the odds of more personality traits by adjusting Random Complexity.  It will affect the odds of certain types of traits occurring.  Those include their personality and nature as well as backgrounds, fears, quirks or even hobbies.  

You can find NPC Backgrounds with Feeling on our menu under NPCs, Coins & Tools or by clicking it in this sentence.

Hopefully this tool with help a few of you out.  I'd appreciate a message in Feedback if that's true.
