I am new to the RPG world. How does one finds a group that is willing to work with new players? What's the best area to start in? Any advice would be great.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thewarblingllama - the recruiting methods for an RPG vary wildly depending on which game you are running. We would need to know if you were running something like D&D, Pathfinder, GURPS, Traveller, Star Trek, or World of Darkness to best answer your question. If you wanted to get a Star Trek RPG group, you might go to a Star Trek club or convention - and that's totally different from visiting a college campus at night to get into a Vampire LARP. \$\endgroup\$ – Tristian Jul 13 '17 at 8:00

Honestly, purchasing an intro box is a great way to get started. You'll get a good sense of general rules.

  1. Pathfinder

  2. D&D

If you're outgoing, check your local area for a game shop. You may be able to find groups willing to play with beginners.

You can also use something like L4G on reddit to find groups.
