OK - I am in the mood for another play by blog game. This time is will be slightly different to the last one.
This time I an thinking of using a floor plan and use photos of minis on the map.
The reason for this is mainly that it won't occupy my playing area for months while the game is being played. Thus it will let me do other things with the hobby at the same time. It would allow for me to have my cake and eat it too as the saying goes.
I did this for a Strange Aeons game on LAF a while back, and it seems to work ok.
This would also allow players to send me a photo of their own mini to be used in the game.
Positions in the game go to those that played in the original game first, and if there are any slots open after that, I will take other players.
I will also come up with a player's guide to assist in the game - basic rule concepts, what you can and can't do etc.
The game would, hopefully, be more scenario based rather, so that there are clear objectives to be met in order to win the game.
And I wont hold back on the punches zombies make either. I would expect a few casualties this time...
One good thing about using floor plans is that I can keep things hidden, and thus create more of a surprise for the players - Mwhahahahahahahaahaha. Oh, wait, did I type that out loud. Bugger.
So, any interest in this style of Play By Blog?
Would potential players like to see a mock up of the floor plans and characters before deciding?
I have made a small mock up to show what to expect with this:
My camera is really dodgy at the moment - I can press buttons but non of the settings change, which really makes it hard to take decent photos. But the above should give you the idea of what I am intending.
