Looking for Pathfinder Players!

Hello, my name is Stephen I’ve been playing D20 systems for about 15 years. I am looking to start a weeknight Pathfinder game that starts around 6:30pm on Tuesdays Wednesdays or Thursdays. Pathfinder is based on the 3.5 DnD rules for those who don’t know and it’s an easy conversion if you know the 3.5 system. I can DM a campaign to get things started and I am open to helping people learn DnD. I hope to see some of you soon.

Signing off. Jason
