Advance Dungeons & Dragons Play By Post: How It Works
NOTE: Some of the links may be outdated because they lead to Dungeon Master Threads that are not active but the substance of what is said still applies.
UPDATE: This also refers to the style of certain Dungeon Masters since some Dungeon Masters do not use a Party Leader thread for party actions but instead interact with the Players.

Yes that is the best way for it all to work out. I do glance in the party thread now and then but not very often. I let you all have your free space there. If I have any questions about the party order or actions I will post them in the party leader thread.
Just to like give my two cents here. I think if the party leader posts just the actions of the character and the questions we have then we'll get more done faster because there is lots of dialogue in the party thread with specific questions that gets missed and sometimes people post questions in different places that are missed too. So like all the long conversations and stuff can be missed cause I don't think Kntroan really cares about that anyway. Something like this...
Beast will strike the orc he rolled 20 and 5 damage
Namdar does backstab ... Blah blah
We have questions:
# Can we do this...
# Can we buy magic
I think it will be less pressure on our leader too if all he has to look for is "SA" to know what to actually Post for the leader thread. Hey this is just my two cents.
Since some of the newbies are like so lost you should probably add to this how to create a character so they like don't get themselves deleted.
How's this, guys?
AD&D Play by Post Newcomer F.A.Q.?
It has even been stickied at the very top of the Introductions Announcement/Sticky section itself, on the main part of the site! I do wonder if it shouldn't also be here as well, but hopefully it will catch everybody there.
I like the FAQ page you made Jpatt. One of the things I would have changed is under Character Creation. I think having the words "All characters created for play in the forum must be first level." This will save some time I believe.
I added that in the Rules long before you thought of it, but I will add it to your AD&D FAQ Thread as well.
