    Hmmmm... are you talking about an RPG game or a simple "role-playing," non-dice social thing?

    Requires a lot of trust as far as admiting what you rolled, but I'm all for it.

    You can just give the GM your sheet, and he can roll for you, but I have played on a forum which used a trust system.

    Don't worry, it works easily.
    I'm a newb to SWRPG, but what I know I learned by PbP games.So let's say You are the GM, and the rest of us are players.
    So you make a thread, and tell us all the stuff you would tell us in a normal game.
    Than our turn comes, and we reply to the thread, telling you what our PCs are doing, just like in normal games.

    There's five of us, we can start already.
    Will we trust eachother, or will the GM roll?
    Who want's to be the GM?

    Sounds intriging, but I'd fall to the temptations of the dark side.

    ie;

    I'd always roll natural 20's.

    :p

    This sounds interesting, I'm in.

    And if no one else wants it, I'll GM. [face_mischief]

    Okay, there seems to be enough interest in this.

    Here's what I'll do.

    I'm going to create two threads (later). One will be the GAME thread. This will be for all in-character interaction as well as the actual game itself.

    The second thread will be the SUPPORT thread. In there we'll discuss rules, characters, etc. Charlie, you should think about whom you'd like to GM the game (including yourself, if you wish). Then we'll need to hash out characters (levels, rolling stats, etc.). Then we can get going in the GAME thread.

    Sound good to everyone?

    I think Diverjkc should GM since he probably has more expirience.
    So do you guys want a champaign or an adventure?
    I say champaign.

    Well a campaign is a series of adventures.
    Champagne is a bubbly wine drink.

    So champaign is an alcoholic campaign? :confused:

    So I think we should start off with one adventure so far and see how it goes. Best to start small, methinks.

    I'd be interested if we did a Camapign, but a One-Shot isn't really my style.

    Also, isn't this what the RPF is for?

    That's what I determined from my opening post.

    Apparently this is geared to be an online play-by-post actual game (in the same vein of play-by-email).

    So this *isn't* an RPF thing, it's an RPG thing since we'll be rolling dice to determine outcomes (and relying on the "honor system").

    Ahh, ok, Cool.

    Well, i've got a campaign i'm running right now with a novice Group that I would be willing to run. Heck, i'd like to see how the stories turn out differently between a noivce group and a more advanced group.

    But if oyur Just interested in a One-Shot, i rthink i'll wait till we get outta that Drudgery to join up.

    Ow. It sounds great but I'm afraid I won't play. :( I can't go through the trouble of rewriting each and every post for hours until I think "Hmmm, I guess this is *readable* English". :p

    Good luck with it!

    I am an experinced GM and player, either way suits me. I have most of the WotC books (all except campaign guide and rebellion era). I could do a one-shot or a campaign.
    [political mode]And I promice, by all that is right and good in this world or any other, if you ellect me the GM of this game, I will be fair and just in my rulings. No person will influince my decisions and, may the dice be true, I shall not lie.[/political mode]

    Though I must warn you, I am a veeerrryy tricky GM. Have a nice day.

    If that's the case, then my games are definately champaigns.

    This game sounds like a good idea. I'm in.

    dp4m, you should let the GM create the game thread when he is ready.

    There's 9 of us if I'm not mistaken.
    That's a little too much right?
