[In a Wicked Age] Let's give this game a second PBP bash!

edited May 2008 in Pitch
I want to run a game of IaWA on PBP. I know there was a game on here a while ago, and it (eventually) dried up, but I think we can make it work.

Here's why

1) It's an awesome game. I'm desperate to run it, play it, anything.
2) I have a few ideas about how to make it work better in PBP... start with ONE game thread, with IC and OOC all together... perhaps we could do some negotiating separately, or introduce some kind of revolving veto, or time limits.
3) Two or three players. That's a max. If I only get one player, we'll draw the oracle and then go to The Pool for the system.

What do you think? Anybody?


  • I was thinking of a similar thing myself, oliof. Although, how do you get those quote blocks? (sorry, I'm pretty computer illiterate). My rationale for single thread was based on

    1) When I look at a PBP game, as a lurker, I want to see how the mechanics interact with the narration. I don't just want narration; I'd read a book if that was the case. I'm interested in why events happen, and how the system supports the events and characters described.

    2) It gives some scope for negotiation. I'm thinking we're best trying for a post a day commitment (but I'm easy if you can't make that), possibly less at weekends. I'm based in the UK, by the way, so my posts won't be on at the same time as you (assuming you're in the US).

    Three players is about what I think we can manage, so I guess we can start... anybody else want to join in, just chip in here, while we talk about oracles.

    What do you guys fancy? I'm going to follow Vincent's advice, "GM's, don't choose, deal or read," excellent GM advice for any game. So what are we after?
  • If you format your comments as 'BBCode', you can create a quote block by typing


    to start it and


    to end it.

    I'm in Switzerland, so we're pretty close time zone wise. A post a day is quite possible.

    I'm all for the God Kings of War oracle.
