I'm trying to start a play by post game with my friends. I was thinking about using D&D 4th Edition (it's the game we play the most). We really know the system and it would make for little work when playing play by post, but the play by post medium doesn't really lend itself well to doing encounters. I was thinking about just doing it with D&D 4E and trying to make a story-centric adventure, and keep the encounters to a minimum. If an encounter is needed we would just be very descriptive so as to not make any mistakes (when it comes to opportunity attacks and position and such).
If anyone has any good suggestions about how to a play by post game with 4E or if they have any advice for me, that would be great.
Advice on how to handle encounters and skill challenges would be great!
