RPG Fourm Game

How can I make a successful RPG fourm game? I jumped too far ahead and didn't think how to do it. How can I actually get people to join too?

Re: RPG Fourm Game

Well technically that's what this topic is doing right now. My advice would be to think it out before you post, make it interesting and put effort into it. If not then most people won't care.

Re: RPG Fourm Game

Here's the thing, as much as I enjoy forum games, I must say that they never quite work out here.
The recent "Star Trek: How to Host a Mystery" game was slow as hell.
Not many people are able to keep participating in forum games here, and sometimes an announced game will get a ton of people who want to participate, and the person who is supposed to be hosting it will never speak of it again. I find those ones amusing.

Entertaining mechanics?

Also, can someone delete my RPG thread? I think I got a better idea that might just work.

Re: RPG Fourm Game

I was thinking of this for the battle menu:

-ATTACK
-SPECIAL ATTACK
(Sp. Attacks in bulleted list and how much MP it costs)
-TATICTS

-HP #
-MP #

Any suggestions?
