Since Mafia is having a bit of a time getting off of the ground, I was thinking about alternate games to drum up activity (and potentially new users). A low-activity forum without special coding really isn't ideal for doing Dungeons and Dragons but... what the hay.
Basically here's how it works:
1. We'll do daily posting. Each day, I'll post a description of what's going on and the players each post a response. The next day I'll post a new description, incorporating the players' speech, action, and decisions.
2. I'll handle all dice rolling on my side and simply include the results in my descriptions (making this more role-playing instead of roll-playing on the part of the players).
3. Combat will be truncated and streamlined.
4. Roleplaying between PCs (player characters) is free-for-all, not limited to one-per-day. But to keep things in synch, not all player-player interactions may be incorporated when I post my daily descriptions.
