Using Dice and Co-Op RPs

Hello everyone!

I’m wanting to start a DND style RP thread, wherein the DM (me) will be presenting the world and it’s NPCs, monsters, and challenges to the players, who must work co-operatively to complete some grand adventure.

I want to use dice and bare-bones basic rules for combat and challenging actions to keep the tension and risk of failure real. I already have a good idea of how I want to do it, but I was hoping some others on this thread could give me advice first.

If you have experience with this style of forum RP, how well did it work for you? What rules did you use? What would you advise NOT doing? Anything helps really, as this will be my first time attempting this.

Thanks a lot for your help!

In the past, DnD styled rp's received a lot of interest on this site but never took off. I'm sure they would still have interest, but given that it will be on a forum and thus text based you might want to lean towards the more rp heavy side. As for dice rolling on site, I don't know if it is currently available but I would recommend that you as the DM control the rolls. By doing that you know whether things work out or not and if need be can fudge the rolls to keep the story going or steer it in a way that is more interesting.
