Martin Ralya of Treasure Tables posted a two part article on his blog last week about how he ‘lost his virginity’ at Play-by-Post (PbP) as the DM. These are in-depth with some of the technical details, tips and tricks and other sage advice to keep it real, keep the flow of the adventure from stalling and lots more.
In part 1 of the post he gives the tips/tricks and some examples of how to implement the process, a basic intro to PbP and the guidelines for his game.
In part 2 of the post he talks about what went well in the campaign, what went badly and the modifications he’d make in the future.
All in all it’s gotten me thinking about looking into finding a PbP campaign for myself as opposed to trying to find a local group to join! 😀
BTW, Martin’s site looks like a goldmine of information from an experienced GM (since ’89), i’ve subscribed to his feed! Want to get a taste of his blog? Here’s his ‘Top 25‘ most popular posts.
