    Just curious. I haven't heard of any new PBEMs being started in a while, is anyone still running/interested in running them or are they dead? Or am I just badly misinformed and there are, in fact, dozens of thriving PBEMs out there?

    I doubt that, because I've stopped running AoS2 in January. :P

    Help out the ignorant newbie, what is a PBEM? Actually, I believe I know what it IS (a simulation of domain turns run by a moderator), but what does the abbreviation stand for? :unsure: If I am wrong on what it is.... let me know that as well.

    Thanks,
    Kill 'em all, let the God's sort them out!!

    There`s barely any going on at the moment. The few

    that exist are listed on my links page

    (http://www.geocities.com/fearless_leader101/links.html).



    I must admit that I`ve been chomping at the bit to

    play in one, as I havn`t been in a domain level pbem

    since the beginning of the year.



    As for the question of whether anyone is interested in

    running them, all I`ll say is... "stay tuned for

    updates in the very near future." =)

    I've been trying on-and-off to find a BR PBEM ever since I encountered the setting (a year or two ago) without any success. I might even end up running one myself, but I'm not sure how much work it would entail. The more I play BR, the more crunchy I find the domain actions and warfare rules as they are laid out. I would probably use some kind of simplified, mainly narrative, way of making things work.

    Personally I think armies are far too cheap, every game I play in seems to end up with PCs carpeting their realms in forces. I've seen the listed armies of Ghoere get beaten up by a monster army raised by Roesone, which just shouldn't be possible either in setting or mechanics - Ghoere is supposed to be a great power.

    Heh, didn't Ghoere increase its army once it figured out that its neighbors had increased theirs? And Ghoere would be able to raise a larger army than Roesone, more likely.

    Just gotta remember to run those nearby NPC realms also, it sucks for the DM, tho it needs to be done in order to make it realistic.

    Well, it was Ghoere's army in the field, rather than its defence forces, but even so, it was a very considerable army - many sturdy mercenary units. The Roesone player was a bit of a munchkin, his country was constantly grinding along on the edge of the bankruptcy because he had this huge force mobilised.

    Also didn't hurt that the PC was a living engine of army-wielding destruction. Every leadership/warcraft feat and blood ability.

    The point is, if there's inflation going on, and it would be stupid for everyone not to increase the size of their armies, then maybe units should be a little more expensive.
