Vincent has predicted this game might "behave in some subtly strange ways online." (linky
I'm not too worried. I think the game will play fine. We can, however, expect some rules discussion, so this thread is for that.
From reading the rule clarification questions that have popped up in places, I see some advice and feedback that I think will help our on-line play. Tips
We should Describe Actions first; consequences are negotiated later. (Vincent, The Forge
Be comfortable to back track slightly from described events. The above distinction (Action vs. consequences) might not be entirely clear at all times. If we find confusion, we might need to rewind a bit.
Be prudent with your narrative power. Unless another character "can and would try to interfere" with the stated concrete action, we don't roll dice.
Also, I'd like to put out some words of encouragement to keep the enthusiasm and posting pace going. Each post need not be some spectacular literary event. Any response is better than letting the game die. So don't hesitate to ask other players for input or ideas. Even just "dialing it in" on occasion to keep the story moving is perfectly fine with me.
