PlayByMail.Net is a PBM oriented website, whose aim is to promote play by mail gaming and to give PBM gamers a place to gather. From this website has evolved the PBM Wiki, a blog, and Suspense & Decision magazine, a PBM magazine for the 21st Century. The site contains both a discussion forum and a blog. The site seeks to facilitate PBM gaming by serving as a major modern resource for play by mail.
So much to do, so many places to visit. It's difficult finding time to fit it all in.
Nonetheless, the past two months have seen back to back issues of Suspense & Decision magazine, a PBM Magazine for the 21st Century, make their way out the publication door and into readers' hands.
Now, whether anyone was waiting to read the newest installment in the S&D saga is anybody's guess, but I suspect that there's at least a few die-hard fans out there in the Great Somewhere of the Beyond.
You'll even find a couple of ads that hearken back to some PBM games from the days of old - games that are being brought back into play. Issue #15 features ads for Adventurer Kings and The Crack of Doom II, for the very first time. Click on the links and check them out!
Play-By-Mail gaming spans a range of technologies, these days. Sure, there's still some paper and postal turns out there, but most PBM companies that remain now offer other options. Sometimes, these other options aren't optional, as they no longer do paper turns. All the more to pity, eh?
Honestly, though, there's some really great stuff happening with multiple different lineal descendants of postal games. Pure excitement!
Check out Issue #15 of Suspense & Decision, and then check out the games mentioned therein. You'll be glad that you did!
