7th Sea and online rp vs tabletop rp

Since there are a myriad of little personal bits and pieces of plot going on in 7th Sea right now, and since we're not meeting for the next three and a half weeks, we've taken part of our 7th Sea game online. There's an email scene going on, and tonight, , Jason, and I did a scene between Cat and Rahne regarding some startling new developments in Rahne's personal life. Fun stuff. If Dawn and Jason are willing, I'll share it with interested parties.

Anyway, it was FUN. RPing online, in a instant text environment, is like absolutely nothing else. It has an immediacy that email RP lacks, and a chance for creative expression that face to face RP lacks. It clicks with me, I love it to pieces. And I want to do more of it.

It's not MUSHing. I don't want to MUSH. This is very focused, specific, limited RP. And I have absolutely no real outlet to do it. I've been a part of it before, but the games all fell by the wayside when people got too busy. Isn't there anyway for me to feed this big RP monkey on my back? :)

(Edited to add, there's an update over at . Silly, self-pitying git. ;))
