Unlike traditional pen-and-paper roleplaying games, PBEM games are more in the style of chain stories or round-robin campfire tales.
Like traditional role playing games, players control a character involved in the story. Players then write a short story segment (called a post) describing their character's actions in relation to the story. Combined with the story segments from other players of the game, you form the the game's storyline.
