Does anyone want to run a Play-By-Post game? We have this entire section at the bottom of the forum devoted to PbP that is going unused.

Is PbP dead? If so, why? Did everyone finally get fed up with all the unfinished abandoned adventures and say enough is enough? Has the rise of internet video call gaming (whatever it's called) made PbP obsolete? From my experiences wth PbP at D6 Online I know why I personally don't like it, but obviously a lot of people used to like it and do it.

Every PbP that I have ever joined fizzled out within the first few weeks.

My biggest issue isn't necessarily with the medium, however the progression of the story is waaay too slow for me to really enjoy it.

I have found that most PbP games favor those who have a ton of free time, as they post more, they're able to do more in game. If I did end up playing in one or running one, I would put a limit on the number of posts that can be made, so that everyone can participate in the story, not just one person moving things along while everyone else reacts to them.

I started in a PbP (my first) over at Dragonsfoot for 1e AD&D. It fizzled when the DM and another player evaporated.

That said, I'd love to play a game here.
