So, on another forum, long ago, I played a forum game with them too. However, this forum game was very different. For one thing, there were no stats. Players decided what happened to themselves, and it was more about the story than winning. Would anyone be interested in a game like that? I have a few ideas for setting, but I just want to run the concept by you guys first. Reply if interested.

What you are saying it is basically a freefrom game, since it doesn't seem like stats are involved?

Actually it might be high-stress, or high-maintenance anyway. I've been in some completely rules-free campaigns, and they eventually ran aground because without a way to decide the outcome of actions players just clashed. "I killed you!" "Did not!" That sort of thing. Plus, rules are a form of content, information - what wizards are, what they can do, what the gods do and don't, what form of society you can expect to find yourself in etc. So that's already some meat on the plate. Without a "reality" to ground people they soon begin to write each his own story and the game disintegrates.

I played a game like that with Kafen and Brelia using Google docs for over a year, went really well.

Well, I'm still open to that sort of thing. I'll be honest, I'm a soft GM. I never have killed a character in one real and 3 free form campaigns. If you are in, Tenmix, and Jenara, I'll start working on the plotline. The setting? New York, post-crisis. (So common, IK.)

What sets it apart?
The PC's control survivors of the crisis. The crisis mutated about 99 percent of the pop into freakish mutants. There are basic and stronger varieties. Central Park Zoo will have some tough variants. The survivors have been given superhuman powers by whatever the crisis was. There are other survivors too, and they may help or hurt you in your quest to escape this hellish land.

So what say you all? Any takers are welcome. You will have to agree that my decisions are final.
