The QCarz Official PBeM Page
There are a couple of things that need to be
accomplished before the ground rules can be layed
Rules for the PBeM:
- You must have a copy of the QCarz Handbook
version 2.0 or higher. This
handbook is available for
both Acrobat and MS Word format. If you have any
problems getting the rules,
LET ME KNOW!
- Following the rules within the Handbook,
create a character (with a brief
description), and equip that character with a
maximum $40,000 of weapons,
vehicles, and equipment.
When you create the character, be honest with
your die rolls (if you don't
have dice you can use the online dice server at
www.pbem.com, the die used in
the game is a 10-sider). I'm not going to be too
picky, but as the organizer
of this PBeM I encourage role-playing characters
Any equipment that you will need for the
"scenerio" that is not included in
the rules of the Handbook will be supplied by me
(ie. espionage gear).
- Mail the character to me, formatting does not
matter except for vehicle
designs. For vehicle designs follow the format
described in the handbook.
- QCarz is a role-playing game without a game
master. However, this is impractacle for PBeM,
because each die roll would then have to be
generated online to keep everyone happy. I will
do all of the die rolling... don't worry, I'm as
honest as they come.
- A post of results will be made by me at least
once every week. You can send mail to me as
often as you would like, I check my mail at
least once a day. The more often you all post,
the more turns will be made. If you know you
will be unable to post for a week, let me know.
If you do not post for a week without informing
me as to why, your character may meet an
- If your character dies, you may start another
character, but they begin with no equipment
other than a pistol and the clothes they wear.
The reason for introducing a character will be
worked into the storyline.
- I will not go away! I can't stand PBeMs that
fizzle out after a few weeks. This stuff is too
fun! I won't change the rules, either, unless a
real problem arises.
