I know people have read this. Is there anyone brave enough to try the game?

GroveTalk is a conferencing system designed for on-line asynchronous gaming by post. This doesn't run as fast as a game run in person, but can fit almost anyone's schedule.
And no, there is absolutely no cost for this game, except for trouble of working with the user interface I built (or to help me improve it). You can post at any time sending messages either to me or to the various discussion groups.
I try to play role-playing games so that everybody can have fun.
The players don't need to know the mechanics of the game. I build characters from the descriptions that the players give me. I also do the avatars according to their descriptions (unless the players are better than I am at graphics, which is fairly easy). I haven't given any of the players I have currently the numbers for their characters.
There are metapsychic (psionics in most game) abilities. There may or may not be magic (do *you* understand the mechanics of the internet, or do you do as I do, and just type in the box and hit "submit"?).
Have fun gaming!
This is an all-purpose game. I want to run two groups (with possible connections between them); one low-power and one high-power.
Please don't be scared of the glossary, where you will see that most of the people described are of high power (not all of them - some people that have come into contact with the PCs are there as well as some crew members; also there is a fair amount of disinformation in the glossary). Well, those are the people that are known. One PC isn't in the glossary as a visible character because he wants to blend in; that's fine - if you don't make waves you aren't that visible.
If you have a concept for a character, please suggest it even you think I may not like it. I may just not have thought of it.
If you look at the game, and see some problems, please respond (either here or by private message). I can take criticism (trust me, I saw the reviews of my book).
I'm looking here because I'm an adult living in a college town and I have very little contact with people. I've already enlisted the two people I know. Except for the slightly adult content of the game, I'd ask them to convince their 6-year old daughter to play. OK, not much has happened in the discussion groups that way, but there was a fairly steamy exchange between Katrina and Paris France.
