So...speaking of things OOC, I'd like some feedback from you on how to handle "game mechanics". It has been my experience that the game system takes a back seat to the storyline / plot in pbp games. With that in mind, I can run this one of several ways:
1) Mechanics are invisible - you state the action your character wants to take, and I describe the outcome.
2) I set up a thread for all mechanics rolls / draws. That way you can see the results of your action and will have a better understanding of the stated outcome.
Ultimately, it makes no difference to me either way except for one small caveat: it saves me time if it's "invisible" as I don't have to create an extra post.
