A forum game, unsure of placement?
« on: July 26, 2015, 11:32:30 AM »
I wish to submit and run a type of forum game, but unsure of it's placement.

Player's enter a creepy styled mansion, and choose one from over 50+ items to take with them into the madness.

The Gm, (me in this case)....describes the areas as the players enter them. Gm also control npc's/mobs.

The players then state their "Actions", one or so per round. The gm collects the actions and then describes a scene with the actions included. (This may include that the actions of the players succeeded or failed.)

This goes forward, as the players try to reach the end of the game and final boss.

It's like a cross between a tabletop game and roleplaying. So, i'm unsure where to put it. I'm probably overlooking it.

IF there's dice-rolling, it falls under system (or follows any prescribed system format on the market), otherwise it's free form.

Thank you for your reply. I suppose being it has no dice involved....but it follows a structure....it would be placed under "free form".

I would also note for those interested in the idea you are building to know it would be heavily GMed. :)

This sounds like a really interesting idea.  I would put the advertisement thread under GMs/Groups Seeking Players.

If you're approved, please let me know once the thread is up.   I'd certainly be interested.  :-)
