I'm playing a play-by-post game with a friend of mine. We're using the forum to play and after 3 days of enthusiastic posting, we've got a forum thread with 4 pages and growing.
I'm just thinking about putting the game into a format where other people could enjoy reading it (though I'm wondering if I care and if I do, why I do). Once the first chapter has reached a conclusion, should I post it up in the Adventure Log, dotting i's and crossing t's? Should I have a link to each chapter in the Adventure Log, each link leading to the forum for that chapter?
What do other folks do with their campaigns?
In addition to this I create wiki articles for all the different things in my world to give background information about things that may never even show up in the game.
I don't think anyone reads any of it... so I think you should go for it!
For example, "this Adventure Log Post":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/rubies/adventure-log/broc3 was originally drafted by myself and the player using a Wiki page dedicated for his character, which is linked of "this page.":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/rubies/wikis/notes-in-progress
For other players, we just do pbem and then I take that email exchange and turn it into an adventure log post. For example, "this post":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/rubies/adventure-log/vermillion-and-iaondrin-29 was drafted in email, where we "forwarded" our responses back and forth to each other and made additions at the end of the email.
And "this particular post":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/rubies/wikis/wyrd is a compilation of exchanges with all the players in my group, some of whom did their portions at a live table-top session (and which I wrote up), some which were done by email, and some that were done using a Wiki page.
The other Adventure Log posts are either write-ups by me of weekly live sessions (like "this one":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/rubies/wikis/week-38 ) or "interludes" of things the NPCs get up to off-screen (like "this one":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/rubies/wikis/interlude-ix )
