Hi Guys,

I've never played by post before, is there any user guides around that I can read up on?

Cheers,

Brett.

Welcome Brett!!
Yup there kinda is. I'll have to go find the link to it. But you can ask as many questions as you want too. The members here are very cool and quite supportive.
Be well,
--Ron--

Hello Brett and welcome to the unseen servant. Not really a user guide for Play By Post. Essentially you post as you can in games and it takes a bit longer for a game than say face to face or even in a video/voice chat style game. But it can still be quite fun just check me out I'm running 2 games on here and playing in 12 roughly. Highly addicted to the game I'll admit that.

Well yeah there is the Tips for Players and the other for DMs not really a "user guide" per say but pretty close. I suppose really the biggest thing is one you already posted an introduction, two would be if you want to join a game check this area Looking for players or games after that subscribe to the game you join. If you plan to run a game the same place is where you can post recruitment and interest. Just make sure to send a PM to Alethan to get on the GMs of the Unseen Servant page and a PM to ToniXX to setup the game forum for you.

Hope that helps, thats my cliff notes version.

Regarding this, definitely check out the 'Tips for the Player' forum. At a quick look, there are three topics you should maybe start with:

So you want to play in a game on The Unseen Servant?
Edit: I just realized these two are actually included in the first link. Definitely start there.
New To Play-by-Post Games?
Tips For New Play-By-Post (PbP) Players


Beyond that, the board is filled with helpful people, so definitely don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have.
