Go Back While You Still Can!
kidding about any of the following!
Running a Lords of the Earth
campaign is not a trivial matter. If you have never run a PBM
campaign before you do not have any idea of how much time and
effort it can consume! As a regular matter of course, doing a
turn of a game in a good state of progression can take up to 60
hours of work per turn. This is not a minor investment
of time. Your partner, should you have one, will not be pleased
with you if you undertake this and don't have 60 hours a month

fallen by the wayside? Check out the Hall

Having said that, here are the minimum
requirements for running a successful game:
Windows-compatible computer with at least a Pentium III CPU,
256MB of RAM, 20 MB of free HD space and a VGA color monitor.
or better (Windows XP is the designer's OS, so that works
a good InkJet or a Laser printer.
starting player base of at least 25 players, with at least 15
of them who have never
played Lords before.
Lots of time for answering
questions, either by phone or email.
