I would like to get involved in a Play-By-Email game, as a character not DM. Where is the best place to begin my search for such a game?

this is not a duplicate .. i am looking for pbem games, which is different to pbp. – Craig T Mar 2 '11 at 20:31
many use pbp / play-by-post to include games played by email, forum, phpBB, etc. See the play-by-post tag description, which is why I had added that tag. – yhw42 Mar 5 '11 at 5:03

mxyzplk's link is good, here are a couple of others I haven't seen yet (I'll add these to the wiki later too): MyRPG is growing and has some pretty advanced tools. Ongoing worlds is another good site.

I think this would have to be the worst way to play D&D 3.5. But I guess many people do play this way. You might find this site to be useful.
