Hey there Tarka!
One of the best ways to get to know people is to jump into the discord and just start chatting.
Also Ilyria has a great post here if you want some links to lead you to different kingdoms and groups to find some like minded people.
I know Our Duchy of Thorne on NA-W is always looking for motivated individuals if you wanted to drop by and chat with us too.
If Discord is too much, feel free to shoot us a PM here in the forums instead, but either way Welcome and best of luck finding some people to play with :D
