Pooka, have you considered working on an online, user-editable character sheet for these forums? Something along the lines of 3eProfiler? (Which is open source now, I think.) Something intergrated into this forum would ROCK. It would definitely make this the defacto pbp forum out there.

Something to think about. This is great, btw. Well done.

I've thought about it - but the news and reviews system is next in line.

I had originally planned to have this site out in summer, but my timetable got changed with recent events.  I do hope to be up to full speed by this summer.

In the meantime watch as things appear one item at a time - and by all means continue to make suggestions.

Zalmoxis:
Thanks Pooka. I'm not ready to use this yet, but the time is coming soon when I will. It's nice to have something like this on NKL.

How do play by post games usually work?

I'm pretty new to the idea. I see the benefits of it, you can play with other people who are not in your same timezone, but what if you're RPing and can't respond for a while, everyone has to wait especially if your character was part of the focus? Seems kind of hard.

Benoist:
Well, usually the players and GM agree on a minimum number of posts to provide. It's a commitment. Usually, it's something like one post a week day, though it may greatly vary.

Most of the time, the game will just flow, just as if some players were more active than others at the game table, while others just sit there saying nothing for a while. It's in combat where that may become an issue, because then each player has to post what their character is doing during the round, and again, and again, until the fight is over. The way it's dealt with depends with groups.

But in the end? It's just a commitment. You commit to post at least once in a while, while you trust others to do the same. Many a time, this commitment ultimately fails. But sometimes, it doesn't.

Oh. And welcome to theRPGsite, rcairns84. :)
