Depending on interest, I'm thinking about starting a 3.5 game.
The game I have in mind is a low level beginner type game. (Probably best for newbies)
I'm looking for the following positions:
lvl 1 fighter (prince/princess)
lvl 2 swordsman/archer (prince/princess' instructor)
lvl 1 cleric (advisor)
lvl 1 player choice (not a monk, bard, or barbarian) (friend to the others)
If interested let me know and we can work out details.
I'd be more then interested in joining if you don't mind me learning as we go Closest to 3.5 I've played/ran games for is Pathfinder so I'm hoping it's easy enough to pick up. I'll get hold of some PDF's and look up rules etc.
1 - 2 posts per week is pretty standard. I usually prefer 2 as it keeps the games moving.... unless your game is more hack-n-slash, in which case, if the posting expectation is a simple, ">>Insert character name<< moves to attack the foe again", you may want to increase the posting rate. Play-by-post games are notorious for getting bogged down, especially during combat. Learning how to pace your game is a key skill.
My own game, Tales of Alder Vale, is three weeks (real time) in and, at two posts per week, we still haven't really started the main adventure. (haha) What took about 8 hours around the table with my kids will likely take 4-5 months in play-by-post format.
Three other key pieces of advice:
1) Set your posting deadlines for players and npc PCs whose players are unable or unwilling to post... don't wait around for them. Life happens and sometimes people can't post for a week or two. Ask your players to give you notice if possible and, if they can't make a full post, ask them to give you a line or two on what they'd like their character to do in the Q/A thread. But keep the game moving... bored players lose interest. The forums here are littered with games that started well but fizzled quick.
2) Communicate often with your players, especially giving them a heads up on when you are too busy to update the game. Let them know if there is going to be a delay, and inform them of when you how to post the update.
3) Be committed to see the game through to the end.
Anyway... I'm still interested. Here's the thing for me: I can commit to playing until about mid-May. In addition, I have about 3-4 weeks splattered between now and mid May where I will likely find it difficult to post due to work. If you think you can work with that, then count me in. Let me know either way. (I'll not be offended if you say no)
Regarding levels, well, I'm going to leave that with you. If it works for you for higher level play and the rest of your players are game, cool. If not, I can live with level 1.
