Howto Play by Post Any RPG on Google+

Howto Play by Post Any RPG on Google+

Gaming
The most common thing I get asked when starting to run a new role-playing game online is how does Play by Post work. Here is a break down of how I run AD&D (1e/2e/OSRIC) games with Google+. First, what is play-by-post. Play-by-post PbP is a game run by posting situations and then allowing for players to respond to them. It's not the fastest way to play, and the waiting sometimes sucks; I have to make sure everyone has a chance to contribute before rolling out the next part of the story.

Gaming, Guide
As with many consul publishers, after a certain amount of time the older systems become less viable and the systems fall into the category of Abandonware. Wikipedia defines abandonware as: "computer software which is no longer being sold or supported by its copyright holder. Sometimes, it is used as a blanket category for any software over a certain age, usually five years. The term has no legal meaning. This means that labeling any kind of software 'abandonware' does not make it legal to make copies of it or publish it on a website. Unless the author puts the software in the public domain, abandonware remains covered under copyright law until its copyright term expires." I want to state upfront, if Nintendo has a problem with this guide, please contact me…
