Looking for gamers in all the wrong places...

Living in southern Ohio has been an adventure to say the least, but in an effort to bring some normality to the change of scenery i'm trying my hand at finding gaming groups near Cincinnati/Dayton. to say the least it hasn't been going too well. for one thing i'm not finding very many female players and two the race card is a hard thing to avoid down here(racsim is pretty strong down here still!), so i try to be honest and state that a person has to be open minded as well as be open to different races or creeds, but i still get very few if any replies.

so my question is does anyone know of any sites or ways to solicit for gamers? Besides White wolfs, and meetup.com (which sux ass because they want you to pay for starting a group now!) or just general pointers on how to get a group together?

ACTUALLY, I know that *I'm* a geek when....

Yesterday was counseling with the Episcopalian priest in preparation for my April wedding. She was running a little late due to some parish member being in the hospital, so we picked up books in the church office to read while we waited.

I picked up Jesus in Jerusalem, which showed maps and compared them with scripture to show how the city looked back in the day and what the various areas of Jerusalem would be used for. Instantaneously, I started looking at the maps wondering how I could flesh it out for an adventure, even going so far as to start imagining flavor events that would give visitors to the city a real feel for the culture. I started pondering how PCs would handle the strong church and the hustle crowd that passover would bring. Then I started wondering how I would translate this into a 3.5 diety and the main city of his temple.

Yeah... I am a geek.

but I borrowed the book.
