   Hello folks,

   Many of you know me.  I've been a active member here since early
   '90s.  I contributed a great deal in version 2 of the rules.

   I started my P&P PBEM (Play by Email) game back in 1999.  At
   this point in Adventure #7 we are 75% done.  Sometime next
   year we'll be done.  Ready to start Adventure #8.

   As always I have welcomed new players all the time.  But I am
   doing another Official Players Wanted post.  But this next
   adventure could be potentially the LAST P&P for me.  This one
   will probably last till 2019.  This means TWENTY years for this
   PBEM.  They say retire at the top.  So I may end after the next
   adventure. But I may not.  I do love this game.  But after 20
   years who knows.  :)

   A little background:

     I started PBEMs going back to 1983.  They evolved into my BBS
   (Bulletin Board System).  During the height of this period I
   had at one point 17 Active players in Gamma World (another game
   I run).  I've done others as well.  But this tells you the experience
   I have covering almost 35 years.

     As I said above this current P&P started in 1999.  Since then I
   still have 2 players from that start.  The game itself has only
   stalled twice.  Once one summer when a player who liked to argue
   over rules bogged down things till he died mysteriously (it was
   not ME! I don't kill folks like that).  The other time was a couple
   months when my dad died.  So that shows you this is a constant
   on going game.  Most fail in the first 6 months.


     * The majority of game play is done by e-mail.  If you get email
   you can play.  No need to login to sites.  Email goes to you via
   a Mailing List thanks to Wout.

     * Two websites are resources: Wout's the main P&P site and my
   game site.  My site keeps copies of all posts and updates.  I also
   have links for maps, pictures and other resources like experience
   charts and such one can view as needed.  No login needed just
   access the site.

     * V2 of rules with Perilous Lands  Party HQ land is Marentia.


     I normally don't post a roster in these ads.  But since this
   could be the last time.  Why not.

       Player  Person    Race        Class/type
       Arawn   John     Elf       Druid/Priest/Alfar
       Fremea  Tobie    Faerry    Sidh MU/Archer/Herbalist/Warrior
       Kell    Mark     Half-Elf  Merchant Trader/Wizard
       Kiet    David    Human     Acrobat/Wizard
       Unali   Wout     Human     Dagger Maiden Warrior
       Pyan    Panthera Human     Hunter
       Z'leyra Alex     Human     Shaman/Healer/Wizard
       Dorhak  Kevin    Dwarf     Warrior
       ?       ?        ?         ?
       ?       ?        ?         ?

      Pyan and Dorhak are newest folks.  I have 2 others working
      on characters as well.  So while it looks like a large party
      of 8-10 folks I tailor things so even that's not enough. :)
      Like I said I've had 17 active in one game and it worked
      out so well folks still talk about it.

      So see something that interests you?  I can accept all types.
      Normal and Half Breeds.  We've had 2 half breeds and a 3rd
      will be joining.  I prefer not to have Natural Magicians but
      anything else is fine.

   What does it take to play:

     * Browser/Email client

     * Time: For you 20-40 minutes a week.  I do 2 updates a week.
   on average 300-500 lines.  If you read fast great.  So this
   is a estimated time 20-40.  For me as GM it takes 8-16 hours
   a week to work on the game.  Combat updates take 3 hours per
   phase at times.

     So can you spare 20-40 for maybe 2-3 years?  Join up.  It might
   be the last chance.

       Has links on how to join, FAQs and other things.

   Thanks for listening.  Now back to the mailing list...

   PS. My Site has info on what a PBEM is if not sure.
