Yeah my language teacher the other morning mentioned that Chinese people have started getting angry that foreigners might bring the virus back into China... en.wikipedia.org/[...] -- obviously this is not a one-way deal lol
I don't know about anyone else, but I personally feel much happier to look at the GK threads now that there is less clutter, spam, trolling, rude & offensive users, etc. I quit using GK when I moved here a few years ago because I quickly got tired of having to dig through the junk and endless rants for useful content...Now I'm actually glad to be coming back on again!
This is still a thing... There are at least two regular groups going, maybe more. The DM in my group is one of the pillars of the D&D community here so I will ask him if he is willing to be put in touch with you on Wechat.
Another possibility would be to go to Barfly and ask the owners there to be put in touch with people who play D&D, they will know.
