Swords and Wizardry Play by Post

I ran across a forum that is devoted to play by post of roleplaying games, especially D&D. The forums are divided into categories of Dungeon and Dragons:Games before 3.5e which includes 2e homebrew campaigns and 3e homebrew campaigns. There seems to relativity very few of these games.

Then there are the catagories Dungeon and Dragons: 3.5e and Dungeon and Dragons 4e. These catagories are devided further alphabetically. The last Catagory is Other roleplaying games. This is further subdivided into d20 modern, pathfinder, starwars rpg, codename ladybug, and other roleplaying games.

Most likely Swords and Wizardry would fall into the latter category and sub category “other roleplaying games.”

These forums are set up to make dice roles using tags that will convert a d20 into a dice roll. The DM is the moderator of the Main Thread of his game as well as the subthreads of his game. After his game is approved a Game thread is created by one of the administrators of the board. Once created, the dm can create his own threads in the game thread. One thread can be devoted to the main game play, while another can be created for dice roles. There could be one for just Out of Character discussions.

I want to start a game on this forums as well as get others involved. To start an old school presence on this board. Whether it be Swords and Wizardry, OSRIC, Labyrinth Lord. Old Schoolers need to represent. So if your into Play by Post, would like to try your hand at play by post. Come to and join the fun. Let us get several games going. Using the free rules we may influence others on the board to give old school D&D a try.

Do you play by post? If not would you be willing to give it a try? Please leave answers to the questions in the comments below.
