M74/OD&D Play-By-Post (for Cancer) Idea
As many of longtime visitors (especially if you visited the Retroroleplaying forum) may know, I have wanted to run a play-by-post Microlite74 or OD&D game for a long time. Unfortunately, my wife has vetoed this idea every time I suggest it as she does not want me devoting any more time to the computer than I do now. Until now, she has said that I could either run my Sunday face-to-face game or a play-by-post game, but not both.
We were discussing this a couple of days ago and she suggested that if I really wanted to run a play-by-post game I could if all the players made a donation to the cancer fund to play. I just laughed and said that no one in their right mind would pay — especially the $100 donation she wanted — to play in a play-by-post game no matter how good the cause. This was the wrong thing to say and I ended up in the doghouse.
To get out of the doghouse, I had to agree to mention this idea in my blog and forum to see if there was any interest at all. I did get her to compromise a bit on the donation size — it’s down to a slightly more reasonable $30. I still don’t expect much (actually any) interest, but I want out of the doghouse so this idea is getting posted. If you are actually interested (and willing to donate $30) please post to this idea’s thread on the RetroRoleplaying message board. (If you think this is a dumb idea, no need to say anything as you definitely aren’t alone.)
