Super shot in the dark here.
Back in the days before everyone had an internet connection, around the late 80s/early 90s, I found an ad in a fantasy magazine or something for a play by mail rpg. There were a few of these, but basically you filled out a turn order sheet, then mailed it and about $3 to some group that would then mail out weekly newsletters on the hex grid fantasy realm this game was played in, and the fighting and adventuring your party had done resulting from your paid order sheet.
I only got to play a few times because $3 a week was pretty expensive to me as a young lad, but this morning I was struck by immense nostalgia for the hundreds of times I read the mailings I got from this game.
I would be keen to read up on it, do some research, or just bask in nostalgia if anyone knows what I'm talking about. So far I've had no luck searching, because so many of the search strings also loop in online concepts which bury what I'm looking for, if it's there at all.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and especially recall the name of the game or company or anything?
What is this I don't even.
