PbP Sandbox Game Recruitment (Closed)
I am considering the possibility of running a PbP game here on the site. A small, wilderness sandbox, starting at 1st level. Would there be any interest?black and white adidas forums high tops shoes , adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cloud White For Sale

If it won't start for about two weeks (or if I can join in later), I'd be interested.

I can't see it really getting rolling before that, at least in terms of the actual adventure. Would you be able to handle character generation before that?

Yeah, that wouldn't be a problem. I just don't want to commit to an actual game at this point; I'm moving within that timeframe, so there may be disruptions up to a few days in length as I move and get settled in.

(There might not be any disruptions, either, but I'd be lying if I said I trusted Comcast to have everything working on the date they're supposed to :p)

We might need to slow down, I'm running out of fingers.

So, I've never played by post before. What's the conventions and expectations?

1.) No one whose forum name I can't pronounce is allowed to join, so you're right out!

2.) Make sure you subscribe to the thread(s) so that you'll receive notification when a post is made about the game.

2.) Try to post once per day whenever possible.

3.) Do your best to let us know if and when you'll need a hiatus.

4.) Be aware that PbP games are terribly slow - a single combat can easily take a week or more - so it's a bit of a longer term commitment.

5.) Any torture or sexuality (or other adult content I'm forgetting to mention) will be glossed over (e.g. "You forcefully coerce the Goblin, and it reveals how many of its clan live in the cave..." or, "The two of them head to the room, closing the door behind them. They emerge more than an hour later, dishevelled.").

6.) Be considerate of other players, and make every effort not to be offensive. On the flip side...

7.) Remember that what is said in the In-Character thread is not the player talking, but their Character.

8.) Deal with any disagreement or discussion in either the Out-of-Character thread, or via PM. Please DO NOT disrupt the game for everyone over a disagreement.

By the way: you are number six, should you so choose.

Sure, let's try this out.

Co-when is how I say it. I also answer to "cone", "wats-his-face" and "hey, stop that".

For what it's worth (i.e. not much), for mine: just imagine saying "blah-blah-blah" as quickly as you can.

Not to toot my own horn, but I wrote up some posts here (http://www.unseenservant.us/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1520) about stuff I've learned running pbp games. I never got a chance to condense/clean it up, but I think it is a pretty good overview; even though it is focused on *running* games, it has what I consider to be some good advice for players.

The #1 piece of advice I can give to new players is to make sure every single post* you make does something to advance the game. If it doesn't -- regardless of how much "role-playing" it adds -- it is, in my mind, a pretty useless post. Nothing infuriates me more as a DM than people posting without meaningful content. If there is a choice to be made by the party ("do we go left or right"), I firmly believe that subsequent posts should address this choice, so the game can be moved on. Successful pbp gaming requires that players have opinions and not be afraid to share them ("I'll go along with the rest of the party" is essentially a meaningless post, if made *before* a decision is reached, because it does nothing to actually move things forward).

*Note that if you're posting multiple times per day this does not necessarily hold true.

Thanks! I'm reading it now, and it looks pretty good. I need all the help I can get.

No, I already have six. You may settle for number seven, if you wish.

We're full up, by the way. Sort of. It's possible there'll be one more. Someone I took pity on and offered a spot to out of compassion. They'll probably be along shortly.

I see our last player has trouble following instructions. Nevertheless, we're full for now. I'll change the topic title if and when space opens up.
