Play-by-post Roleplay in Rokugan

Recommended Posts

We have created a place to play on epicwords.com. You'll need to create a free account to join the campaign. I'll be updating the wikis and creating forums as we go. Thanks!

Would anyone be interested in doing something like this? Do they have a subforum on here for that type of thing?

I think it could be potentially be a lot of fun. It's something I haven't tried in maybe 10 years. But it might help keep me excited for the game until it finally comes out!

I'd be in.

We might need a different forum for it, though. A dedicated story head or team of gm's might not also go amiss (Autumn Court 1?) I would be happy to help with development and be a supporting player.

We might want to wait a couple days after the Beta drops to make sure everyone has a handle on the new rules and setting. Unless you're going for the 4E ruleset and plot, which requires the above, but less wait time. Both are good.

I am not a huge fan of pbp/forum games, but am planning on doing some MUSH shenanigans.

Where?? I haven't played MUSHes in...over a decade. I do stay active on a MUD. But I'd be totally down to do this.

There was Kishi Kaisei a while back that was 4e, set in Clear Water Village, but it died off a few years ago.  I've been wanting to do my own, set on the new Mantis Island that sprung up in their war with Phoenix (the name escapes me at the moment), but mush code is a dying skill.  I'm trying to lure a fancy coder to help out, but there is also the possible legal issue that I don't know if a Cease and Desist will show up.  I know that White Wolf has gone out of their way to include MUSHes in their legalese, so I dunno if that is implied with FFG's stuff, or what.  So tricksy.

Many forums have dice rollers built in but how does that work with custom dice?  Seems like it'd be hard to do.

There are many forums that support custom dice (for simulating card draws and such). Or we could use ordinary d6 and d12 rolls and just have conversion tables in the main post.

Orokos.com is a really nice online roller for PBP, unfortunately there's no syntax for rolling xd6 and yd12 at the same time, you need to make separate rolls. But everything is time stamped, with the campaign, character and description tied to the roll.

Example:

Testing roller, Water Strike: 3#1d6 4 3 6

Testing roller, Water Strike: 1d12 3

according to the conversion chart that's:

Opp/Str

Suc/Str

Exp/Str

and 

Suc

 

choosing to keep the d12 Suc, d6 Opp/STR and Exp/Str d6 I reroll:

Test dice Water Strike exp reroll: 1d6 6

Annother exploded die!

Keep that to bring tally up to:

3 Suc, 1Opp, 3Str

next reroll:

Test dice Water Strike exp reroll 2: 1d6 2

That's 1 more success;

4 Success, 1 Opportunity, 3 Strife.

with the Water Stance I could choose to ignore 2 of those Strife.

If there is still a chance to jump in, I'd be interested in a PbP as well.

I've read quite a bit about L5R 4E and own some of the books, but unfortunately never actually got a group off the ground. I'm eager to finally dip my toes into Rokugan and have a variety of ideas for potential characters.

My work has been a little busy, but I am going to look at this today, create a site, and then post an invite for everyone here who wants to participate. It might take a little setup time, so not everything will be there right off the bat. But I'll be working on it. :)

I'll update my original post to include the information too.

I created an epic words.com campaign. This will allow us to create forums, assign XP, and do other tasks. It makes for a lot of convenience. I am arranging to become a paid subscriber so I can pretty up the page some more, but for now it'll do.

You'll have to create a character to join it. Adding info to the top. I'll be working on the forums and other data through out the day.
