Oh don't get me wrong...I've just found that even small games can take up multiple forums...it depends on what you want to do. Granted my Vampire/Garou game i'm in has 44 players... :)

Nah, Mike is used to a much more sprawling, immersive game (Basically a LARP online). Clearly you guys want something casual, and that's fine. Check out the game Khilk is running over on House Aedroud- it's got its own forum, but it is still only 2 or 3 threads.



This is about what size a standard PBP Forum is. One some sites you will have 5-6 Separate Games running each in there own Forum on said Site.


For those that are interested in the Warlord PbP site Take a look at This and let me know what you think of it. I can get us a forum over on that site with no trouble as I have already talked to the Admin and gotten the Ok. I just need to know whether to proceed or not.

Last call for player input before I make a decision on the following:

Where do you want our game to be hosted?
--Here, at the Temple of Lore.
--The Playground, recommended by Marcethus.
--House Aedroud, recommended by AragornRoR.

What posting expectations would you like to see for our game?
--Casual, posting 4 times over the weekdays, and at least once over the weekend.
--Formal, each round should be posted by 9:00 pm Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, and Sun.
--Something else that will work better, because I'm not certain either of these are the best idea for a play-by-post game. I'm just guessing.

If you don't have an opinion about these, let me know that, too, so that I can be sure I'm not stepping on any toes. Thanks for letting me know what you'd prefer.

Answer to # 1. Either on the Playground (yeah I know I am biased.) Or here on Temple either would work.

Answer to 2. It would be best in my view. if every player at least checked the game thread every day and posted promptly to their character posting every day if needed. Of course there will be times when RL interferes but that is when a note should be pmed/emailed some one stuffed into a cannon and shot in the GM's direction. Just my two cents on that idea.
