Discord Game
« on: January 25, 2017, 02:52:55 PM »
Anyone interested in joining my first time MCing of Monsterhearts? Discord server, PbP, any time zones, anything goes. Experience level doesn't matter at all, but if you are a veteran, patience will be required as we all get our heads around the rules. Not that that should take too long, but just FYI. Thanks!

I am moderately intrigued, though I have had some bad experiences with (my own) stickiness vis-a-vis play by post games. Do you run a lot of games in that space, and/or have any ideas/structures in place to encourage people to contribute reliably over time? Also, Discord is a chat server? How does that work in terms of asynchronous play, and the like?

I am currently running one Apocalypse World game on Discord, with mixed but for the most part positive results. In general, I encourage people to post whenever possible, with a few gentle reminders if they seem to have missed my last MC post. I'm in another four PbP games, and have a fair amount of experience with the pros and cons of the style from both sides of the screen, so to speak. The posting rate varies from multiplie back and forth interactions, to a once per day/couple days larger posts. I've found Discord works quite well for online games, as multiple channels can be used simultaneously for specific purposes. If you're interested, I'll send you an invite.
