One of the features Crafty gamers have sought for some time now is a player finder / game location database for Spycraft enthusiasts, and we believe we've finally found the ideal solution. Pen & Paper Games is the number one location for finding players and groups near you. It boasts a large and rapidly growing network of tabletop gamers, letting you quickly and easily locate nearby players and GMs with similar interests, preferences, and availability.

Also, Pen & Paper Games and Obsidian Portal recently teamed up to create the Lonely Gamer Network, a cool new feature that marries Obsidian Portal's campaign management tools with PPG's player matching services. The network includes your Obsidian Portal campaigns on the PPG Player Registry and optionally makes your profile available to GMs on the Obsidian Portal site who might be looking for players. This gives your PPG profile even more exposure, making it even easier to find a game.

So if you're looking for a Spycraft game, or new players for your espionage outings, we recommend you check out Pen & Paper Games. When you register your profile, be sure to look for My Icon, which lets you use a special Crafty Games icon on the Player Registry Google Map. Proudly declare yourself a Spycraft Agent today!
