Thread: Good Pbems?

  1. #1
    Are there any GOOD BRPBEMs out there? Everything I see is either always on hiatus, or simply neglected.

    Anybody have any good recommendations?

    PBeMs seem to come and go in waves. There'll be a period of time when there's several underway or just getting started... even if they don't make it past the first turn. And then there'll be a period of time when there's almost nothing. We seem to be at the low point of that. There might be a total of 3 or 4 games going on right now.

    Ruins of Empire is still running, and shows no signs of dying anytime

    soon.



    The game has run continously from the Autumn of 2000, and is currently

    starting on the 29th turn. The game is not currently seeking new

    players, but that may change in the future.

    Because so many positions are hopeless!

    I've played in LEBR 3x now. Each regent I played had a negative income each turn due to maintenance costs and no income. I quit each regent after 3 turns usually because I was bankrupt.

    I've also felt that LEBR is run by about 5 people who know each othe really well and plot, plan, connive, and act together for their mutual benefit. If you aren't in that group, you lose.

    Just my 3 cents on that particular game.

    As far as a 'good' PBEM, I don't know of any. Sorry I'm not able to add to the topic.

    If you would care to elaborate on these allegations, feel free to email me at azrai@spitaki.org. From my point of view, you are wrong :P

    I thought LeBR was one of the PBeMs following the original 2ed BR rules the closest? If not, in what ways have they changed the domains/rules so that the maintenance is too high?

    (Please note, I have never participated so I am just asking out of curiosity.)
