Wondering if I could host a play-by-post RPG on @Sublevel, or if the character limit would hamper us.
Would the players reply to the DM for each turn, or would it be one single, ongoing thread? My gut reaction is that IRC would be easier.
I don't want people to feel like they have to be available at the same time, and IRC may make people feel that way. I know several people who would be interested in playing an asynchronous game. I imagine the DM sets the scene, and then the players reply with what they want to do to it. When all players have reported in, the DM updates the scene. I am just not sure if it would work in a way that is enjoyable.
