How Mr. Ralya Lost his Virginity

Er, his play-by-post virginity, that is. (Yeah, I know you have your minds in the gutter. I see how many of you find me via a Google search for "succubus porn". ;) ) Play-by-post, where you publish your actions to a message board, is quickly becoming a standard method of playing RPGs. It fits very well in our heavily scheduled world. A few minutes a day, every day, can give you a shot of your RPG fix, keep you in touch with friends no matter where they might be, and allow you to practice your writing skills. It does, however, move very, very slowly.

If PbP, as it's often abbreviated, is something you're interested in, be sure to check out Mr. Ralya's two posts about it. In the first, he describes how he set up the game, and why. In the second, he gives a brief post mortem, describing what went well, and what didn't.
