So, I am in the process of getting a new Hunt going, for those who are familiar and are interested (or are not familiar, yet still interested).

It will be my first foray into running a play by post game. And it will be in Discord.
If you are not already there, and are interested, drop me a line.

Question:

If it's play by post (a forum site) but run in Discord, how does that work?

Play by post (or post as you emphasized it) does not have to be a forum site, I have seen them run via facebook, and heard of them being run via email.

In this particular instance I set up a section on a discord server with several channels, one for out of character, and three for in character, based on location of the characters.
Only those assigned certain roles can post.

Posts are timestamped, and persistent, so the log is always there, kind of like a forum, or FB comment thread, or email chain.

I hope that helps.

I have no interest in playing on Discord/Facebook. But I will say - if it is the game I am thinking of, it is an absolute blast!

I always describe the game: It's the movie "Running Man" with Schwarzenegger, where you are all the "Hunters" with cool weapons, hunting criminals. While the bad guys are all over the maze, with one big bad guy as powerful as the players running around.

Totally a beer and pretzel style game.
