How to Play by Post
I am looking to start running a game via email. But I have no real idea how to do this. We are planning to send one or two emails a week. Otherwise, I don't have a clue.
I will be running the game and have the world and background set up. I also have a game system ready, if such a thing is needed. But I don't know how to determin success rolls, combat, magic, or anything else.
Combat in my games are very descriptive and typically consist of one move at a time. An attack and defense, leading to the next attack and so on. How would I do this via email? What if they fail at somethng?
So any advice, knowledge, rules or anything else that you guys can throw my way would be very much appreciated.
