Play by Email

We are putting the following in on a trial basis. I’m sure there is plenty of tweaks yet to come, including giving xp for comprehensive story summaries. For players that have already contributed to extensive play by forum pieces, please take a look at what you’ve done and approach me with what you think you deserve xp-wise. I’ll go over the same stuff and get back to you.

Play By Email Experience Guide

The following is based on the standard White Wolf tabletop experience rules.

A session equivalent is a generally agreed-upon segment from a story thread, often representing multiple posts. Each session will have the following awards:
- One experience for completing a session (session definition isn’t easy… more on that)
- One experience for someone involved in a multi-person session with the best contributions to the session as voted by those involved, no experience in this category if it’s a solo piece
- And the usual storyteller’s discretion category which will include one potential experience point for writing (style/entertainment value/fitting appropriately with the theme and time period/factual correctness)

A story will typically be resolved within a thread, occasionally stretching further for a long story. Each story will have the following awards:
- One experience for completing a story
- One experience for someone involved in a multi-person story with the best contributions to the session as voted by those involved, no experience in this category if it’s a solo piece
- And the usual storyteller’s discretion category which will include one potential experience point for writing/story progression (style/entertainment value/fitting appropriately with the theme and time period/factual correctness)
