On Monday, September 6th, I had written:
Monday saw me lose the Play By e-Mail forum for the a|state rpg. I posted stuff about the a|state rpg in an earlier journal entry to get ready for that game, and because I really like it. The mailing list that I set up for the game was well on its way to getting some traffic and characters being talked about, and I uploaded about 20 files for the game stuff and the setting into the mailing list Files section bright and early Monday morning. A new player joined the list, which needed my approval as Moderator (because of how I set the list up), and I took care of that about 11:00 that morning. I get a message from him early in the afternoon, saying he received the approval, and that he went to the mailing list - and it was gone. I checked things out and sure enough, it was gone. Wrote a message to Yahoo about it, but they told me that it may have been one of the glitches that happens from time to time and newsgroups vanish or go missing for several days.
For the moment, I'm taking this as a sign from the Goddess that I'm to run the Deliria: Faerie Tales for a New Millennium PBeM, and leave the a|state one be for the moment. I still have all the files and stuff for it, so can start it up again at some point when I'm not so...disillusioned about it.
Now, as many of the readers of this journal know, the Deliria: Faerie Tales for a New Millennium PBeM game fell apart after only a couple of weeks. I ended up starting up the HEX: Tales of the Hollow Earth PBeM, and that game is coming along quite nicely, and the players are starting to get the hang of their characters and the posting system.
So, it was a shock for me to get several posts from players who had been interested in my running the a|state gothic Dickensian science fiction rpg PBeM game, and wanted me to relaunch that game. I have to say that I still have no idea what happened to the Yahoo mailing list for the game when I started it the first time, but I figure that that isn't likely to happen again (Goddess willing), so I'm relaunching the PBeM game...
What is a|state ? You can find out by checking out my original entry on the game, and learn more than you might want to know about the game. :)
And the URL for the a|state: A Tale of Three Burghs PBeM game can be found here:

I look forward to seeing some of you in The City... :)
