Any RPGs made for PbP?

Does anyone know if there is a pnp rpg system made specifically for play by post? I think it would be kind of interesting to have one that's native to forums instead of adapting systems. And if not, any interest in such a system being made?

    Specifically made for the PBP medium? Not that I'm aware of.

    Some of them better lend themselves to it than others, though. World of Darkness, for example, works wonderfully on a forum.

    >De Profundis<

    It's very, very literally play by post.

    Yes, I'm that much of an elitist snob that I know about De Profundis. Never played it, but I know about it.

    The derivative of 4th edition that I'm working on would work well for a pbp. I'm not using any immediate or interrupt mechanics.

    A long time ago I was interested in this..and was curious to see if there were any others interested. Sadly it gained little to no traction :(

    Yeah I find the idea interesting. Especially considering the fate of so many pBp games.

    dude called Pony had a few system ideas roling around and while Im not sure if they were exclusively pbp orientated they were damn well suited to it, very narrative-led and good for making characters

    edcrab had the exigency system which was based around one-roll, and i think the latest version is going to use different dice cos one advantage of a PBP is that all the complicated shit can be done by an online roller like Invisible castle.


    And Im pretty sure Horseshoe had a PBP ideas brainstorm thread here once, i remember seeing it back when I lurked! I should look for it

    I have a PBP-oriented game system I am literally working on right now. It's a revision of the EPIC System I made a while back.
