An inter­est­ing exam­ple of a play-by-post (aka forum) RPG that is heav­i­ly slant­ed towards sto­ry­telling. This means: no expe­ri­ence points, skill checks and that sort of thing. In stead, it fea­tures mechan­ics (some quite clever) that con­trol who gets to say what about the sto­ry­world. Points are award­ed for par­tic­i­pa­tion in sto­ries, which in turn can be spent on describ­ing new cre­ations. It is, how­ev­er, heav­i­ly reliant on game mas­ter over­sight, as not all rules are ful­ly described.
