I have been living in London since September, and all my gaming experience was in the United States, specifically in Maine, generally in a house of a friend, and usually with people I either grew up with or met through gaming. I want to join a game, or hopefully more than one, but a look at RPG.net and the powers of google show that most are guilds or groups that seem well established. I can walk into a pub or concert, a classroom or an event and I can hold my own. Fanboys and Geeks are like sharks in the water however, if you do not know the conventions. Specifically, British culture, gaming etiquette and all that. So my questions is gaming etiquette the same worldwide, or differ on location, and do you all have any advice on how to approach a new group as a yankee pigdog.
