PbP guidelines

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I've never played PbP. Could someone give me a short description/rules for these games here?  How often do I have to check forum for new posts and/or write myself? Do I need to know the specific games rules to play? So on, so forth ::):

Hi Nameless,

 

That's actually pretty accurate.  The gamemaster will set the number of posts within a day/week (since we're casual around here, 3 is pretty normal, more if you can).  The "follow thread" is highly recommended, so you get notified if someone posts. 

 

In some games' cases, the GM can roll for you.  In other games' cases, you do need to know all the rules involved.  There are a good number of Pathfinder games out there, which seems pretty universal.  I'm a big fan of those games because I know those rules best.  Other COMMON systems I've seen played on PbP here and on Paizo's boards (the other PbP board I would frequent).

 

Shadowrun (various editions)

Mutants and Masterminds (3rd edition)

D&D 2e, 3.5, 4e, and 5e

Warhammer 40k RPG's (Deathwatch)

and Warhammer Fantasy (not sure of edition, I didn't check). 

 

I think that about covers it.  Those are the ones you definitely need to know rules.  There are other rules systems out there that the GM's do more rolling than players. 

 

What are you looking for, Nameless?

Nothing specific, really. Got back into RPGs recently and thought I could try out something new. 95% of my gaming was wfrp 1 and 2 edition. I'm not really familiar with any other rules :) I could play any game as long as I'm not bothered with learning rules, lol. Oh well, I'll have an eye on this forum and maybe I'll find a nice GM who will let me play :) 

 

Thank a lot for your reply, much appreciated

Pathfinder is an easy enough system to pick up, and I know I wouldn't mind helping you out should we end up in a game together. New games seem to pop up fairly regular, so keep an eye out, and if something catches your interest, jump on in.
