I am a newbie to rpg play by post. I want to play but don't know how.
I’d be interested in a pbp game once the school year starts and my free time gets irregular. Easier to participate when I have some free time during the school day than committing several consecutive hours for a live game. Plus might be easier to get back into rpgs that way after 35 years lol
Pretty much anything can be done via PbP, but some games, notably ones that negotiation as part of the core resolution mechanic can get very drawn out as multiple posts per action going back and forth are necessary (see PbtA or FitD games for example). Those other games can be run PbP but require a greater commitment on the part of the whole table. Anything D&D adjacent works just fine and the lighter mechanics of various OSR games are pretty perfect.Open to anything but played AD&D when young so something similar might be the easiest to jump back into
