Play-by-Post RPG

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on December 16, 2008

I’m enjoying about Doc Rotwang’s  PBEM game over at his infamous “I waste the Buddha with my crossbow” blog. Traveller…Good. I need to game me some of that online stuff. Although I do get to play 1-2 times a month and a similar amount via skype (for playtesting Shadows of Reality), I don’t get to GM…and I miss it.  Don’t get me wrong, I love face to face play (but I miss like half the sessions the group plays) and the VOIP works well (but I go to bed early most nights)….so its time for something a bit more restricted-time-friendly

My free time is a bit scarce and the people who’d be playing are scattered….so its time for something supportive of remotivity (its a word…honest).  I’ll be following suit with Rotwang and setting something up online. I’m leaning toward a play-by-post setup (with emails generated) probably through YahooGroups. I’d supplement this with voip and/or the occasional face-to-face play.

Now to set it all up. I’m hoping to keep it simple and a little more seat-of-pants than usual due to the nature of post-based games. Hmmmm…I’ll have to think about this during my ride home.

Dragon Tavern

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on June 21, 2008

Dragon TavernI’ve started playing the Dragon Tavern online game. It is the quintessential, barebones, text-based dungeon crawl game. I’m playing a Stormlord named “Adaen” of course.

Although it might be viewed as a timewaster, I’m finding the low-brainpower-input-required aspect of it very refreshing. Well, that and they limit the number of free turns you have/day. Anyway, if you’re in the market for something simple that involves killing monsters and taking their stuff, this may fill the bill.

If pressed for a numerical rating, I’d give it a 7…it does what it sets out to do pretty well.
