DM> Player1,2>(DM's reply to a players post/inquiry,) player 3>4 etc etc.. Like do we all wait for each player and the DM to post at least once before we post again? Basically I'm asking, is there any back and forth communication from two characters?
Generally speaking, it's "post whenever you can." Since we're not around a tabletop and even in different time zones in some cases, it'd be too cumbersome trying to go "around the table." Basically everyone posts once (maybe twice if we're not doing something meticulous, like combat) and then Drama swoops in and magically puts it all into context; rinse repeat. Might want to be real deliberate with names of PCs you're talking to, even if you have to be redundant and over-kill your descriptions and details a bit; there's a certain balance of story-writing and just making sure everyone can understand where you are, who you're with and what you're doing. It can be kind of hard to follow sometimes and a bit of "Who's on first?" at the beginning, but after a little while you get used to it.

Continual back and forth chatter between two PCs is typically fine to whatever extent you want to do it (and to the extent the other player wants to of course). Times like when we're in combat, things like that are when the DM needs to be able to track actions, so probably best to do one post and done when we're really doing something serious.

Okay that makes sense, thanks guys. So, what's about the rate of progression on a play by post thread? (or do they very depending on the game?)

Sorry for the delay in posting. Weekends are my family time so I only get a chance to post at night. I'll get something up in 4-5 hours.

Sure Rainbow, just got home from date night at our local Basketball Team the Bayhawks. We had a franchise record setting attendance of 6,000+ fans and fell short but had a lot of fun. Trying to get acclimated with my replies too. Nice to see you on by the way, Khalil I'm sorry brother but my first inclination was to go with Nirmathas but I thought to risky seeing I needed a story line and something to bond all of you together.

Rangers in the forest didn't mesh well with the majority of players being non fey typed races. We have a Tiefling, two Dwarfs, an Aasimir and a Drow. If the party was at least half or a third of human, half elf and elf player characters I could see the switch. With Molthune for me it seems to fit a immigrant melting pot of various races trying to stake out new lands for themselves.

No worries I'll figure something out. Definitely wouldn't think of it as a melting pot considering the have a slave system and the only reason they need bodies is for war :-p Whereas Nirmathas was all about freedoms and all :-p

Give me 30 mins and a beer and I'll have something going.

Stobco, I think our characters will get along just fine. xD'

Do I need to wait to a post something like introducing myself to another player in the tavern?

Question: I take it we know each other from being in the military and being stationed in the same town?

Pic added, sorry I didn't realize it was necessary, I tend to avoid playbys I never really understood them.

Post is also up, sorry if I got a little carried away I like writing to live music, it just flows better, and Ihsek has a meandering attention span anyway.

And do Bracers of +1 Armor count towards spell failure? I can't decide if that was good buy or not.

Spazz I'm from Erie Pennsylvania, a very nice quaint town on a beach with harsh winters and hot summers. There is plenty to do around here we have a nice mall, restaurants and plenty to do and see. We also have some historic value of the Battle of Lake Erie which was the war of 1812 along with some revolution times.

Rainbow, your Bracers of Armor +1 are fine. They do not incur a penalty to spell failure or armor check penalties. They actually reduce the ACP by 1 and the spell resistance is unaffected. Neither helped nor hindered the chance for a spell to fail.

That's an interesting bit of history, I live about 30min north of San Francisco. :] Lets see... what do we have... we have a collage that I've heard has a 4 to 1 girl to guy ratio, and the first Mary's Pizza Shack location... and uh... there's this stray black and white cat that I think is the reincarnation of Elvis....

Yeah so you know, no big deal. lol

I live outside Lexington Ky. We have a castle some rich dude built back in the 70s for a wife who either died or left the guy before it was completed; it sat basically unfinished for decades but had the castle walls and four corner towers. An actual castle. It's been bought and sold a bit over the years; someone finally finished it inside, built what from the road looks like a Keep inside the walls. You can spend the night there now for a mere $25k, or gets married there for I'm sure much more than that.
