>> 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?
