DONATION PAYMENTS AND ROA MERCH "Hail, and well met traveler! Might ye be an adventurer?"
Are you the adventuring sort ... Then welcome - you've found a new home for PBeM gaming!
Realms of Adventures is based upon decades of classic roleplaying gamebooks that have come before. The founding Game Master has been a fan of Choose Your Own Adventure books since his youth. When he was just 11 years old the Game Master started an open world, utilizing player scene submissions and story branches, based upon Piers Anthony's Xanth series of novels.
This style of roleplaying game provides the reader with the chance to enjoy a good fantasy story as well as allowing the player to guide the action and direction of the story to any one of numerous possible outcomes. As a result - the adventures are limitless!
Realms of Adventures PBeM games are constructed so each and every adventure the player participates deeply and impacts the outcome of each story greatly. The player assumes the role of a central character in the world in which the story takes place. From the beginning of a scene to the end of a major story arc, the player guides their character through various situations by means of simple email communication.

How Does The Game Progress, Are There Turns? Turns are sent to players on Monday - Wednesday - and Friday by Midnight EST. Every turn during the adventures follows a set format. The Game Master will explain the current scene with a description of the location, any items or objects of interest, any creatures or non-player characters in the scene, and any possible (readily visible) exists. Players make decisions for their characters, and climb as much as possible into the role of that character. The choices that you make are made on the fly, as the story progresses, and will impact all the other players and the very fabric of the world itself!
How Do I Impact Another World Through Email? The player will submit their actions by email - as they interact with the surroundings, items, creatures, and other players. Players must focus on guiding their character through the perils of the adventure each day via email messages between the Player and the Game Master. The scenes will usually contain tricks, traps, riddles, encounters and COMBAT.
Each turn that a player completes will reveal more of the world in the following day's turn results email. All the emails will change from short descriptions, to several paragraphs of information used to describe surroundings, objects, creatures, non-player characters, events, and other players.
