Hoi Chummeros and welcome,
We are well underway with the game now so just a reminder to please
read and try to follow the guidelines
to make it easier for me to run. Also check this page regularly (weekly?)
to find out new things of interest as i won't clog the email system
by attatching large files that i think fit in and add background to
the campaign. Also the Archives are operational
as is the "Guestbook" for comments on anything you find on the site
(we won't use it for conversations as i previously thought, just continue
The newest thing is an archive of posts which follows
on from the Story So Far part 1 (a recap on past
events) and the Story So Far part 2 (recent happenings).
Please read the NPCs page
before catching up with your old aquaintances the PCs,
Got all that?
This is an introductory note to the pbem along with some guidelines
for posting to the PBEM list. The general idea is that we will run a role-playing
campaign more along the lines of the a free form game but set in the SR
reality of 2057 in which we will be continuing the low level Denver campaign
of last year. I have created a page for each character,
which will hopefully expand into multiple pages with contacts, drawings
etc. I have put up a character Sheet for all pcs with brief background
(from my original campaign notes). From this i would like you to build
up the PCs background and by background i mean quite a detailed history
and a current situation explaining living conditions, contacts, activities.
There will also be NPC pages for 'your' NPCs
such as Hopi, Qwiki's girl, and 'my' NPCs so everyone knows whos who.
All messages should be headed "PBEM:" followed by the subject. When
replying just hitting the reply button should take care of this (with re:
in front of it). Please only quote the minimum necessary text from the
original message in your reply.
My msgs will fall into two categories, either for the whole group
or for an individual runner/player. If it is for only one player then please
reply only to me, the message will be headed with "PBEM: pcsname: subject".
All other msgs will just have the PBEM: header and should be sent (replied)
to all people on the list (see below for everyones email addresses).
Your replies should start with an In Character (IC:) section where
you are your character, include both descriptions of yourself and planned
actions as well as any dialogue. All dialogue should be in "qoute marks"
so everyone knows what is being said as opposed to thought or described.
Any technical comments, personal comments etc should be clearly labelled
as OOC (Out of Character). This is a space for using player knowledge and
rules discussions etc. Also you will have to interact with other characters
on your own initiative, ie i may send You an email but you may want to
share/discuss the information contained within to the other pcs. As long
as you are in a position to reply IC, eg you have a cellphone, can walk
down to the pub etc, then do so by replying to the others but include a
description of how you contact them in your post, eg, The
only rule is that all cross-replies should include me! the GM.
