I've been running a play by email game for the last 13 years. We are looking for one or two players who are interested in playing in a long term game. The game is constructed in such a way that new players do NOT have to know much of the back history of the game. Anyone who has any sort of familiarity of D&D or GURPS will easily fit in.
We are very much a roleplaying group, with character development and plots that span everything from a few weeks to several years.
The game runs each weekday, with players making multiple posts per day. The posts are short, but it is important to be able to make them throughout the day, so really suits people who are in front of a computer for much of the day.
The game is on http://www.queens-view.com
Long time player and GM, started the online group when my own group began to move move away. The game runs virtually every day and and has been going for 13 years.
It uses rules based on AD&D 2ed, but is very rules light to keep things flowing. Other influences include GURPS and Cthulhu, so any familiarity with a system related to any of these means you won't be in for any nasty surprises.
