I'd love another pnp pbem.  Heck even a decent pbem like pnp.

I'm still waiting on a certain person (who will be nameless) to run 
his game. :)

Sadly most pbems simply fail.

After 30 years I've seen many start...and die.

In my experience 90% fali within 6 months.
80% of those past 6 only last maybe a year or so.

Just sad to see.

I've been in what...6-7 pnp pbems and all falied.  GMs or players or 
both gave up.

I'd admit I considered it a few times.  In the last 17 years we only 
had 2 small delays (summer one time with the infamous greg who had no 
clue on rules) and when dad died though that was only a month or 
two.  For me this is a exception to life the election..the 
shootings...its as much a stress relief for me than anyone 
else.  This is why I've lasted 17 non stop years (7 adventues).

GMs need to consider this and players need to be dedicated.  The 
great thing about pbems is that players don't need to invest that 
much time - maybe 20-40 min a week max.

I'd love more pnp games..sigh

On a side note.  Wout you out there? You ok?
