What are your successes for running this game in a forum? What's a good site to use? How long did the game run? Would someone be interested in playing in and or running a forum game?

    Never tried it myself, but I would recommend Obsidian Portal for that.  You would need at least one member to have an Ascendant account at OP to get the forum, but you get a lot of other goodies to go with it.  I think using the site would work quite well for a game of this.

    You mean like a VTT or actually using a forum like a super old school text based RPG?

    I was thinking old school Mud status...Skype is fun when it works though.

    Yea, I would certainly recommend Obsidian Portal with an Ascendant Membership for this purpose then.  I would also recommend checking out Roll20 as an option to combine the data management of OP with the VTT of Roll20 to allow for a really great online experience (though this would be pending on player availability).  If you do have to go just the forum route then I would still recommend OP with Ascendant.
