Interest for a New PbP Game

Postby devilaether » Sun Aug 05, 2018 4:29 pm

Hi,

Is there any interest in starting a new PbP game on rpol.net? I was wondering how well one of the Heroic Works adventures run in that format.

As another venue option, PbP on Discord is possibility.

I'd be willing to give it a shot. I'm unfamiliar with rpol.net and have only used Discord for pc game group chat (so either would be new to me but I have done email and forum pbp games before).

I am new to rpol as well. Let me set up a game and see if how that compares to setting up a forum-like text channel in Discord. As for playing, what is your preference: GM or player?

I run a pbp game on another forum and could gm here.

RPol has a lot of convinience features.

For example it can include sections only visible to one, or certain players, and players can include explanations only the GM can see.
It has a decent dice roller (even though I don't think it automatically does Dark Eye rolls and tells you whether you succeed and what you QL is)
It has the idea of binding certain PCs to certain scenes and so say if the Thief brakes into the mansion and the others are causing a distraction outside, each side would only be part of their own scene.

Overall RPol isn't the greatest looking site, but I think it is worth using it over a regular forum, specially if there is any intruige etc going on.

I am fine with playing in either place, so long as we get willing players at either location. If we can get people over to rpol, that's great. If players would rather stick around here, I will go with that momentum.
