future, but I've played once (with Luke at a con) and read them. I'm
interested to see how scripted combat PBP or PBE would work.
- Well, -I'd- be up for a face-face burning wheel game*nudge nudge*but
any other medium would be decent, though I'm somewhat burnt out on
play by post
- Hrmm... I'm honestly leaning in the direction of play-by-post,
because it doesn't require schedule feats, it's something I'm
familiar with in general (though applying it to BW will be new) and
because setting it up would be easier. I think I'd want to try Von
Goten's Predicament to start, to work out the kinks of transfering
the game to a non-tabletop format, and to test out how quickly play
- I'm kinda interested in playing, but it seems to me that BW combat, while at
first blush seems to be good given scripting, will actually be somewhat hard
to do in PBEM format. Unless you intend to play out scripts without allowing
changes at all...which could be interesting.
