For my 18th year (1999-2017) - 9th Adventure of my Powers and
Perils PBEM. All new and old are welcome. Even if you have
no PBEM experience.
This COULD Be my LAST P&P adventure. Once we get to year 20 in
2019 it will be 2 decades of a on going game that has lasted 4
years of game time. At year 20 I may call it a wrap but I have
no idea yet if I will. But I figure go out on top. :)
* PBEM: Play by email. The beauty of this style is not like a table
game or roll 20 stream or even a website forumn you have to track
down and log in. This style allows YOU to get email and play. No
need to find a website or microphone. As GM I simply set the scenes
and you react. All you need is a email account.
* Time involved? Depends on how fast you can read. A typical update
is 100-300 lines. This is in sections with a blank line between
paragraphs so its not 300 lines of pure text. A combat update might
take 500 lines. So how fast can you read on average 200 lines? About
5-15 minutes for each update? I tend to do two updates a week. So
At max you may only need 30 minutes for the game? Not much time at all!
* Type of characters? Right now we have:
Elf Priest/Druid Dwarf Artist/Warrior
Faerry Archer/Magician Human Acrobat/Wizard
Human Sailor Human seductress/wizard
Human Hunter Human Dagger Maiden
You can play what you want. Aside from a Natural Magician. :)
* Dedication: Typically adventure will take 1-2 years. One can
still play and have a busy life. If need one you can step back
and deal with RL which is great with a PBEM and come back in
when RL calms down.
* Experience: It does help to have a bit of rpg experience. But
it is not impossible. If you can share thoughts and see a 'vision'
of a story then you'll do fine. Rpg experience does help.
If unsure what Powers and Perils is no big deal. It is a fantasy
rpg system like that other dungeon game out there. But to me its
* Game resources: I have a website one can read and learn about
the game and pbem. You do NOT need a silly account to log in
to a forumn. Just a browser.
* How to join? Simply email me - longshotgm at comcast.net or
pnpgm at comcast.net. We'll go from there.
Again this may be your LAST chance for a P&P pbem. There have
been 3-4 attempts over the years but all failed in days or a few
months. Until I can get Alex, Wout, David and Burton to run a pbem
I am it. :< So you've been warned.
When does it start? In a few weeks. I'm doing the last 2 IBTs for
2 players then we can begin. (IBT-In Between Time between
adventures in this case free time each character gets in this
case 4 months since last adventure in game time).
