How to Get Playing: Finding a Group
Start with Friends
There are lots of discords that you can reach out on with places to post "Looking for a Game" or "Looking for a DM" type responses. DM Mentors Guild has a channel for DM_Classifieds that allows posting of DM's looking for players and brief descriptions of their games. Pathfinder RPG discord also has lfg (looking for game) by categories of gm, player and by world. How to be a Great Game Master is also a great discord for resources and for looking-for-games.
Facebook is another good place to reach out. I'm from Minnesota and there is a group of 2.9K members called "Dungeons and Dragons Minnesota" where time to time you will get people looking for players or DM's to join a game.
I would encourage looking for groups using Discord, Facebook, reddit, etc. to find games only if you feel comfortable with it. Always remember safety tactics when reaching out to strangers on the internet.
Local game stores can be a great resource when trying to reach out and find a table. Some game stores will even have tables that players can come and play with local dm's. Adventures League may be a good start for players who are looking to see if they like Table Top gaming and can possibly open up your views as you play with different Adventures League GMs.
