View Full Version : List of PBEMs

01-06-2006, 07:51 PM
Rathar a ambitious project, with some PBEMs being incredibly obscure........but i think it would help if we had a list of known PBEMs, listing some basic info like DMs, the rules its based on, setting, etc.

List :

Ruins of Empire


Ruins of Empire, HEAVILY modified 2nd ed. Of particular note is that each realm is now broken up into provinces ruled by counts/barons(side effect : pretty much every canon regent now has a lot less RP/GB to play with) and that the DM runs actions for dozens of NPC realms at once. Centered on south coast with a few realms in heartlands/eastern marches.

Campaign history summary : Mt Deismaar wasnt destroyed. Jaison Raenech fought everyone, including Ghoere, and won, becoming the King of Ghoere with tons of vassals. Led crusade to Gorgon's Crown and got killed. Markazor got wasted in the process(level 0 provinces allround), mur-kilad is camping inside their mountains and the swordhawk overran kiergaard.

Rebels and Tyrants


Small brechtur game, based on 2nd ed. Action centered around Rohmarch, Kiergard and Massenmarch. Game is in the process of starting.Rule province action is not allowed.There is a way to do so but no one is going to do it because its not worth it.

Note : It should be noted that the game uses birmail which is bugged and does not follow 2nd ed rules to the letter. DM fiat may also make you fail actions without explanation and you will NOT be compensated.

Campaign Summary : None.....yet.

51's PBEM


Vosgaard campaign, rule province is nerfed to the point of uselessness. Turn 1 has been in processing for nearly a month now. Mixture of BRCS/2nd ed.Mostly 2nd ed.

Campaign Summary : None...yet.

Patriots and Tyrants


Patriots and Tyrants run by Karen/Derek. Based on BRCS to my knowledge I dont really know much about this....im not playing it. To my understanding the DMs play as real players(Not NPC realms!) which leads to some pretty serious trust issues. How are you going to invade someone that knows the perfect details of your battle plan, who is supporting you, and who can slant battle reports, etc his way?

Campaign History : ???

Good hunting.

Ruins of Empire could always use a few players.

There are currently a lot of guild openings (PETG, SASI, SRT), as well as a few realms (Aerenwe, Endier, Ghieste).

Legacy of Blood located at http://www.yabbers.com/phpbb/index.php?mforum=brgame is a small game (around 20 regents) set on the Southwestern coast, from Diemed to Osoerde. Currently a few domains are open: EH, WM and Sw2. The game is set 1 year after traditional BR's start, leaving a few alterations, and of particular note is that Kalien's dead without a heir, leaving guilders to fight over the now available holdings, and pressure had Raenech sign a peace treaty with Moergan, which formed the two northern provinces into Upper Osoerde under Moergan's control. Whether it remains this or not hasn't been determined yet...

It's running on D&D 3,5 using the BRCS with a few modifications, in particular the removal of domain affecting feats. It's currently running on turn 2, after turn 1 went rather uneventful, except for OIT's attempt to conquer Medoere. If this sounds interesting, please come and look. :)

Patriots and Tyrants is run by Derek and Karen as well as two other assistants. To correct the misinformation above, all the realms in the games run by our DM team get turns just as all the PC realms get turns. There is a great deal of interrealm interaction, and even more so now that we have increased the size of the team.

Patriots and Tyrants uses the rules of the Brcs plus a few modifications/interpretations based on playability and the fact that we've been using the brcs for several years now. (This is our 3rd year using it allthough we have switched to the more updated chapters.)

Patriots and Tyrants is a role-playing game in which the PC's are awarded XP based on role-playing as well as their domain actions. It is a 'story driven' campaign that encompasses many aspects of rulership and regency, diplomacy and Empire building, and very little war and 'risk style' gaming.

Rebels and Tyrants is a Brecht game now in its 4th turn. Pace is fast with 3 turns per month. Several characters are still available.

New Birthright PBeM about to start. It is 2nd Ed. and set shortly (29 years) after the death of Michael Roele. For an introductory email/application write to BRnewplayers(at)yahoo.com . The LeBR brand has a strong tradition of political roleplay and intrigue and has been running since July 1998. We hope you'll join us for the newest incarnation!

Once the game starts lebr.servegame.org/lebr4 will be used as the new BB.

http://lebrbb.servegame.org/lebrbb/viewforum.php?f=6 contains some current conversations about game start if you wish to join in (but the email will be more helpful).

If anyone has any questions just ask.
