From their website:
The Bay RPS was started by a group of avid gamers living on the Peninsula. Our mission is to help make it easier for gamers living in the Bay Area to come together and role-play.
Many of us have previously found it very difficult to locate role-players and well... that shouldn't be! This site is TOTALLY FREE to those GMs who wish to publish their upcoming games AND is also TOTALLY FREE for any player to use and hookup with a group of gamers.
