Subject: PBEM starting up
Date: Wed, 1 Feb 1995 11:48:00 CDT

Some of you may remember me from before the Christmas season. I have been
gone for a while, as my PC decided that I hadn't spent enough money on it
lately, and decided to go haywire. But, it's much better now.

On to the important stuff: I am going to be starting a PBEM (that's Play By
Electronic Mail game, for those newbies out there) soon. It will feature the

It will be using SR II rules, with some modification so it works with email.

We will be using Archtypes _only_. No self-created characters. There will be
some modifications to the archtype allowed, however.

Only one of any archtype can be in the group, and they will be given on a
first-come, first-served basis.

People who want to play must be able to log in on a fairly regular basis,
preferably at least once every 2 or 3 days, with a minimum of at least once
a week.

So, if you are interested in a sort of "back to the basics" SR game, just
send me a message that lists your first, second, and third choices for an
archtype. Once I have figured out who is going to be what, I will give
details on how you can modify the archtypes, and how the heck this thing is
going to run.
