Lancer Posted August 8, 2005 Share Posted August 8, 2005 With all the activity lately on these PnP forums with the Vampire IRC game and the Diplomacy game and what not, my curiosity has definitely been piqued enough to consider exploring IRC gaming. It has been getting more difficult to get a good tabletop group going and although I have never tried IRC, I'd be curious to know what you guys think about it. Granted, I am aware that it can never beat tabletop.. I mean, party interaction suffers when you don't see everyone face to face and more than likely the GM has to do *all* the rolling.. All that said.. Is it still fun? Is it a reasonable enough substitute? Is there any way to make combat fast-moving and tactical in an IRC RPG? I had tried PBEM although never liked it. It isn't fun waiting for days before getting a response. The "real-time" aspect of IRC, OTOH, does catch my interest enough to consider it.
